Perhaps just let them air dry or use dryer sheets to reduce static electricity.

The rubberized printing responds well to several applications of felt marker. In your case, choose a permanent marker in dark blue. Use a hatching stroke at 45 degree angle to completely cover the printing. If the marker touches the base fabric, it will not be too noticeable. Repeat this the next day or two. The colour does a good job of camouflaging the ...

One approach would be to avoid removing the logo, and rather, sew some kind of patch over it. Like maybe a RISC-V logo for good measure. Unfortunately, this would be non-trivial to do without puncturing the insulation - you would have to only pierce the fabric and not go any deeper, coming back out through it.

Adding another layer of material will further compound this, and you may find you damage your LCD panel. First, work out why your keys are touching the panel. Maybe the keyboard is protruding from the chassis of the laptop, and needs to ...

See for example this warning Apple published about camera covers on some of their laptops. If you close your Mac notebook with a camera cover installed, you might damage your display because the clearance between the display and ...

I have many chipmunks in my yard. After scraping out what I could, I put the plastic peanut butter jar in the yard, wedged between heavy plant containers. Tossing in a little bird seed makes it even more appealing. When they're finished, it's more feasible to do the dish soap and hot water treatment.

I found an old microscope with extremely expensive lenses that seem better than any ones I've ever used. The rubber base of the scope is sticky and it has sat in a closet for decades. It was like black taffy. If you can't beat them, join them. Ethanol made the surface even more sticky. Then I took a black plastic garbage bag, cut it to fit over the sticky ...

@Mordecai's answer has all the right methods for picking up the glass, all I would add is that a bright torch really helps to make shards of glass more visible on the floor. You need to keep moving the torch around, and it also helps if someone else stands back from the area and shines the torch over while you look; this creates lower angles that you can't ...

White vinegar, which you apply with a clean cloth by diluting with water, will remove the difficult oil stains and the traces left by food residues. Likewise, baking soda and lemon alloy are very effective in removing these stains. You can safely apply this mixture, especially on laminate worktop.

Otherwise, another accident or injury may result. First the large pieces are collected by hand and then the vacuum cleaner will pull all the glass pieces. Cotton can be used for broken glass that does ...
