Killing Mildew in the Bathroom

Any time you have a moist bathroom, it is the ideal environment for mold and mildew growth. Here are some brief tips to help you cope or eliminate the problem.

  • Leave the door open if you can so that steam can leave the room. If you can't do that, open a window. If you are in a window-less bathroom, there should be an exhaust fan to help circulate the air and lessen the effect of steam build-up.

  • Leave the shower curtains or doors pulled back temporarily so that the walls can dry faster. Then pull the shower curtain closed to allow it to dry without being stuck together.

  • Use a nonabrasive all-purpose cleaner or one that has a "disinfectant" or "antibacterial" label. But before you try any cleaner, read the instructions. Test it to make sure it will not discolor the surface you are cleaning.

  • Use curtains that are mildew-resistant.

  • Soap-scum remover will rid you of those ugly tub rings and other hard water deposits where mildew can start.

  • The area under your sick is prone to collecting moisture. Keep it dry and clean. Ditto for the floor in front of the tub or shower.

  • Launder your bath towels daily - or at least weekly. Hang them loosely so they can dry quickly.

  • Never put wall-to-wall carpeting in a bathroom. It collects and holds moisture. Even industrial carpeting is unwise. Should you ever have a spill or a toilet overflow, you'll be in trouble for sure.

The Lighter Side - Just for Women

Dear Tech Support,

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance - particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as NFL 5.0, NBA 3.0. and Golf Clubs 4.1.

Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply Crashes the system.

I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail. What can I do?



Dear Desperate:

First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, While Husband 1.0 is an Operating System. Please enter the command: "http\\www.IThoughtYouLovedMe.html" and try to download Tears 6.2 and don't forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update.

If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5. But remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0, or Beer 6.1. Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Snoring Loudly Beta.

Whatever you do, DO NOT install Mother-in-law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background, that will eventually seize control of all your system resources).

Also, do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have Limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider Buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend Hot Food 3.0 and Lingerie 7.7.

Good Luck,

Tech Support
