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.

A bidet can reduce toilet paper usage and it may be the only solution when you are forced to stay home all the time, toilet paper is sold out, and using other kinds of paper will clog the pipes. Today we are going to show you how to easily install a bidet seat. We try to provide a comprehensive guide on various different bidets and detailed installation. If you have questions in terms of functionality or installation, please feel to leave your comments below.

Even though bidet seat installation is quite easy, some people may still not feel up to the tasks. In that case, you can buy a portable bidet. If you are interested in a free portable bidet, you can watch my other video on 4 Ways to Make a Free Portable Bidet using simple materials you already have. 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 features. Anyway, in general there are bidet solutions that are not that expensive and easy to install. 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.

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.

Dual flush toilet wasted more water, how to fix it

https://youtu.be/9fvWpqNGX8Q

Recently I discovered I have in fact actually wasted water for nearly three years. I learned that I need to re-adjust the Dual Flush by Danco. The URL for my original installation video is:
https://youtu.be/1RDGznJm-U8

Dual Flush by Danco at Amazon

If you are like me and did not verify that in fact we are using less water, now I can show you my method so that you can double check your dual flush system and re-adjust it if necessary to save water.

This video only applies to the Dual Flush made by Danco since the Fluidmaster Duoflush has a different design, and does not have the same problem.
Please check out the video for Fluidmaster system through this link:
https://youtu.be/m6C1YULrPCU
During the filming of the Fluidmaster video, I re-visited the Dual flush Danco design. It was a gut-wrenching experience to learn that I had wasted water every day after my installation 3 years ago of a device that was installed for the purpose of saving water. https://amzn.to/2HPUsYb

The Danco installation guide only has one diagram about adjusting the water, without a strategy to measure and compare the amount of water actually used. The instructions only say that when the Green Slide or Blue Float is down, that means less water drains. This video is very necessary to complete the installation. So please share this video with other people so that we save water.

Anyway, one lesson we learned this time is that you need to actually measure the water you flush down. You need to measure both the quick flush as well as the full flush. You may count your money carefully, but you also need to pay attention to your tank so that you are not flushing your hard-earned money down the toilet.
