Made that mistake while subbing for a flooring company. The chalks label states that it will stain, and nothing will get it out. The label is right. You'd think a vac would get it out dry, but no ...Don't even bring a red chalk line into a home w/ white carpet:whistling:whistling
Almost made that mistake while ripping out sheet vinyl. Cutting with left hand (mistake) pushing away from me. Blade popped out of floor, and hand swung around and buried the util knife in my right arm. I was kneeling on "all 3's" so my arm was pumped full of blood. I made it across the carpet and outside before I leaked on the carpet though!No Bleeding on the carpet:no:
It didn't burn as much as you'd think it would. I'm pretty level headed though, even when I've just stabbed myself pretty good. I could see how it would freak someone out.rofl!!!!!
Great tip. You must have been married for a while.:laughing:I cleaned the whole house today. Including the Bathrooms.
This happened to me. I found a solution, just soak a rag and let it sit on top of the bolt. Only tried that a couple of times, because you have to wait for the bolt to cool. I decided to use the mini hacksaw after that incident.I had to try my multitool to cut the brass bolts, and it worked!!!!!
The threaded stub was so hot that it embossed the shape of the threads into the vinyl behind the toilet.
And I was afraid of scarring the new toilet with a hack saw.
White vinegar can be used for everything!ahava said:Rust is unattractive and sometimes seemingly ruin tools. My lock jaw pliers seized and no longer functioned.
To remove rust, the solution is to take all of your rusty tools or items, and put them in a small bucket as you can fit. Pour vinegar in that bucket to the top, and let it sit for one full day.
come back the next day, and half the rust will already be at the bottom of the bucket, scrub the excess off lightly with a rag. don't let the solution sit more than a day. Repeat if needed. don't let that used vinegar water spill slightly on the driveway. you'll be sorry years later.:whistling
