Spread peanut butter to remove glue residue
QI have laminated flooring in my living room. I used double-sided tape to secure an area rug. Now I cannot remove the tapes glue from the flooring. What can I use? Thanks. Dally, Winnipeg Answer: Use a hair dryer, WD-40 or peanut butter and make sure to test on an inconspicuous area first. Question: Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. Every day I cook myself two egg whites and feed the egg yolks to the birds. Can you please tell me if egg whites are healthy? Mavis, Winnipeg Answer: Egg whites are awesome. The protein found in an egg white is documented as one of the purest forms of protein known to man. Six egg whites deliver 15 grams of protein, only a trace of carbohydrates, no fat and no cholesterol. Extra tip: When whisking egg white, add a pinch of salt for fuller foam and be sure eggs sit at room temperature before whipping. Question: I am a senior citizen who wears two hearing aids. The hearing aids are the behind-the-ear type and the parts inserting into the ear get unsightly ear-wax stains. Could you help me with a remedy to clean these ear cups, which will separate from the hearing aid itself? I have tried soaking them in three per cent hydrogen peroxide without success. Hans, Winnipeg Answer: Regular maintenance of hearing aids is very important, since dirty hearing aids are not only unsightly, but can also cause feedback and reduce sound clarity. Since hearing-aid devices are very expensive, it is best to have them regularly and professionally cleaned so you don’t risk damaging the equipment. Some people have had success by soaking the ear cups in denture tablets and 35 per cent hydrogen peroxide; however, in my opinion, this solution is too risky, since your question pertains to devices sitting inside your body.
