• How can you get rid of the strong scent of a memory foam mattress?

    I have had a memory foam mattress for almost two months now and the scent is still extremely strong. Supposedly it goes away in a few days but we are still smelling it. Additionally, I believe this odor is causing my skin to itch and burn? Has anyone had one of these mattresses for awhile (longer than 3 months) and does the smell ever go away?

    In august, we had laminate professionally installed and immediately we noticed creaking near the molding in various areas. The installer said it might be air pockets. Sometimes your step on it and hear it and you step again and your don't but it is primarily around the edge where the qtr round molding is attached.( The qtr round is both glued and nailed). We witnessed them using a leveler over the entire floor and uneven spots were smoothed out before starting. Will it go away the more we walk on it or does thes installer need to come and pull it up and install it again Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    I just received the strangest email from my ISP Comcast stating someone or some entity alleges an infringement of their copyright. They list the infringing work as 300. I have no earthly idea what this is about. To my knowlege, I have not illegally downloaded any copyrighted material of any kind. I use the internet to send and recieve email, shop online, read articles, and download LEGALLLY PURCHASED music on my iTunes account. The email uses all kinds of computerese like Bittorents and BTpeers. What does this mean? Coincidently, the date give for this alleged offense just happens to be one day after we had Direct TV installed and cancelled cable. Could there be a correlation there? Has this happened to anyone and how did my account become associated with this stuff? I have not been able to reach Comcast yet as I just received this message today and the dept given to contact is not open on the weekends. Please respond if you have any information on this topic. Thanks

  • Can any one recommend a good Women's stretch cotton t-shirt with lycra/spandex that won't lose its shape?

    I have several 100% cotton t-shirts but they always lose their shape after a few washings. I am wondering if anyone has found a brand that wears and washes well time after time. Thanks.

  • Why did pound cake burn?

    A friend made a simple pound cake according to directions on Swans Down Cake flour box. Per directions, she baked the cake for 60 minutes at 300 degrees, but it burned on on the bottom of pan. She used a heavy Bundt pan and used one of the combination oil/flour spray on the inside to grease and flour pan. I have made this recipe many times with no problem. The only thing I could think of was the sprays didn't really coat the pan(I generally use butter to coat the pan and then flour it) or that her oven cooks really fast because 300 is really not that high for a cake and 60 minutes is the average time. Any clues as to what may have happened?
