Avoid Viruses With This Simple 3-Step Handwashing Method (And Other Tips)

https://youtu.be/-YrBEj1fSPU
Have you ever tested how effective your #handwashing is? You still get a cold every year even though you swear that you washed your hands very well, right? We will provide a way for you to test your handwashing skills or you can use this as a way to convince your kids to wash hands well. Also this test method can help us to try different methods. Since we need to wash frequently, no one wants to spend a lot of time, thus we want to find an efficient as well as effective method. Since an average person’s working memory is only 3 or 4 items, most people prefer not to memorize a 7 step set of instructions. In this video I will show you my simple 3-step hand washing method.

Teaching correct technique to people around you is important because other people may harbor germs and increase the density of viruses around you. Even if you have mastered the 6-step handwashing recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), many people can’t do it and it is to your benefit to help them improve their techniques. It is not easy to train kids to do it properly, you need to explain the reasons and demonstrate in a way they will never forget. We will explain why you need 20 seconds to wash your hands, where to start the time and how to count the time without a timer.

5 Ways to make a free portable bidet, reduce use of toilet paper

https://youtu.be/ZWQ3UG6hGzo
What do you do if toilet paper is sold out and using other kinds of paper will clog the pipes? Americans use an average of 23.6 toilet paper rolls per person a year. A bidet could be the best way to reduce that quantity. Today I am going to show you how to make four different DIY portable bidets, using simple materials you already have.

If you are interested in a bidet seat, you can watch my other video on how to install a simple bidet seat, here is the URL:

It is worth noting that an inexpensive bidet seat does not offer a feminine wash, only the high-end unit has front wash feature. So still this video of portable bidet can benefit the needs of female users for front wash if you have a lower-end bidet seat. Anyway, in general there are bidet solutions that are not that expensive. You can recoup the money pretty fast. Plus it is cleaner and better for your skin, brings comfort to people with hemorrhoids, prevents toilet clogs and is better for the environment.

100% free: convert a single flush toilet to dual flush, and adjust single flush

https://youtu.be/hTlKA67en6s

You heard me correctly: 100% free to convert your single flush toilet to a dual flush. Your friends may have bought dual flush kits, but I am showing you the zero cost way, you don’t have to spend a penny.

Even if you don’t care about the dual flush method, you still should measure and adjust your single flush toilet. Many people do not know they are wasting a lot of water. Our own single flush used 2.5 gallons per flush, instead of 1 gallon or 1.5 gallons per flush. If each person flushes 6 times daily, that is 2000 flushes a year per person.

Water costs money, so you don’t want to be flushing any more money down the toilet than essential! We spent a lot of time working on explaining the adjustment not only because it is a recurrent cost to you but also it affects the environment.

When your single flush flapper needs to be replaced, you will face the decision of either buying a replacement of flapper at $6 or installing a dual flush system paying $20. This video shows you how to use the single flush to act as dual flush, but if you decide to purchase the real dual flush kit, here are couple of links for the products:

for Fluidmaster DUOFLUSH Fluidmaster DUOFLUSH

for Danco Dual Flush: Dual Flush by Danco at Amazon





To install them, you can watch my installation and adjustment videos.

Best Bidet: How to Select, Install and Use a Bidet

youtube

This video starts with comparison of different kinds of bidets and will show you the best way to install a bidet on a conventional toilet. Installation will take about 20 minutes. We’ll walk you through our detailed 10-step instructions. It is actually quite easy, requiring no special skills at all. Even though each owner’s manual comes with some instructions for you to follow, since many popular brands have very similar products, we will discuss some overall principles and the strategies so that this video can be applied to your situation. The sample product used in this video is a Biobidet model BBC-70 simplet.

A bidet is far better(cleaner and healthier) than toilet paper, because a bidet will rinse away fecal residue and remove almost all odor. Paper won’t do that. It will bring comfort to people with hemorrhoids. But do you know how to use it? Watch to the end of this video to get the answer.

Did you know that if you are not careful, converting a single flush system to a dual flush system could actually waste more water? Using our optimal installation guide, we show you how to measure your water so that you can save the most water. We spent a lot of time on the adjustment because if each person flushes 6 times daily, that is 2000 flushes a year per person.

The installation instructions from the manufacturer aren’t the best. First, it didn’t discuss how to adjust the blue clamp on the refill valve. Second, adjustment for the half flush from this manufacturer may require you to waste too much water before finding the right point on the dial. We provide the optimal Golden Section solution to waste a minimal amount of water while testing.

If you decide to purchase the real dual flush kit, here are couple of links for the products:

for Danco Dual Flush: Dual Flush by Danco at Amazon

People who are accustomed to the single flush system may accidentally push the lever down when they intended to half flush. Since liquid waste is more frequent than solid waste, pushing down the lever by mistake would cause more water waste. In this video we provide one simple solution to swap the half dial and the full dial.
