Common Questions About Buying Used Bedsheets

Why do I wake up with spider bites, but I've never woken up to a crushed spider body in my sheets?

Are you sure they are spider bites? I recently was bitten several times by a crazy carpet beetle( i think that is what it was) that bit me a dozen times in a few seconds and left dual marks each time. Could be a number of things. Spiders slink around and their dead bodies would only be found if you managed to kill them in your sleep. But spiders almost never bite unless provoked or unless they are afraid so unless you thrash around in your sleep then it is probably something else. Spray baseboards and window sills with insect spray for beetles and spiders and scorpions and different things to keep them out. Mint oil mixed with water and a little rubbing alcohol also keeps many bugs away. Most bugs hate lavender so linen or pillow mist in lavendar would keep insects and spiders away and let you sleep peacefully.

How do one cut men's shirt?

First, you take the man's measurements. That way you know how much fabric to buy. Then, you go online, go to the library or go to a fabric store to obtain a template/pattern to cut and fabricate a man's shirt. Purchase some fabric at a fabric store, or maybe just use some old bed sheets from a goodwill if they're clean. You'll need some pins to hold the pattern together while you cut and sew. Just follow the directions from the template.

I sew my own buttons on. I've made some pretty comfy drawstring Pyjama pants that I learned how to make at school. My Mom taught me how to sew patches into my clothes when I was in elementary school.

What are the things that drive people to return a cash-on-delivery e-commerce order in India?

Thanks for A2A.Agree with all answers here. Let me narrow down to India's Largest Wholesale Jewelry Beads and Jewelry Making, Handcrafting Supplies, finished Jewelries Store _ Jewellery ecommerce site. Jewelleries orders are mostly from women, that wants to deal with cash and not card/bank transfers. CODs orders rejected along with the below answers, wrong address as well. someone ordering in another customer name. First time orders we do call and confirm the order along with the individual items, before shipping, just to ensure, customer not changed their mind or brought elsewhere. Once confirmed, order is shipped from our end. This way, our returns/rejection rate is negligible. For repeat order customers, we donot call and confirm

What are the essential things that I should bring to my hostel at IIT Guwahati as a fresher?

Most of the things required, you can buy there as initally there is a temperary market set up is in place. However if you not wish to purchase there. Few things are essential in IIT guwahati.

1). Umbrella (you would realize that you would always carry it during your stay there).2). Mosquito net ( full of greenery around so full of mosquitos as well).3). Home made pickle of your choice (food in mess is consistently tasteless).

4). Dark and thick Curtains (sunrise happen so early in the morning so you have to use it).5). Some pens and blank copies from your local market at reasonable price (that are available there but price are high).6). LAN wire (3-5 m) (required in hostel rooms).

7). Bedding (in case you dont want to purchase there, options are limited).8). Some old bed sheet to be used as cleaning clothes to the room.any other thing if i get reminded i would update later.

Is it true that most hotels buy only white sheets and towels? Wouldn't sheets with fun patterns bring more customers?

Hotels buy white sheets and towels for economy sake.They are less expensive than colored.They can be heavily bleached over and over for sanitation, which colored towels and sheets cannot.A standard white sheet goes with everything.

My sis owns a resort hotel in a tourist town. She uses plenty of color in the decor. Bland colors and stock paintings are not something my family does.But, having worked for her on occasion when the town was snowed in and hotel maids couldnt get to work and tourists stayed over because they couldnt leave, I discovered that white sheets go with everything.

Be glad for that as it assures you your sheets are as sanitary as they can be

How can I get over BTS?

Ah I used to be like that too to the point where I valued BTS over my schoolwork and priorities. One thing that helped cure my obsession was just letting time go by and realize that as I grew older, my life doesnt revolve around BTS 24/7. If you want a cure immediately, Im not sure about expert or guaranteed advice I can give you but maybe put your focus on something else that you casually love (I hope thus makes sense. I mean another thing you really like but arent obsessed with). For me, I put my focus on another band. My love for this other band didnt become as obsessive as my love for BTS, but it did draw my attention away from them for a while and let me focus on my priorities. Now I still love BTS and will listen to their music but Im not as obsessed as I was three years ago.

I'm analyzing CRMs & marketing automation tools. Is it just me, or does Agile CRM do everything Infusionsoft does but for a much lower price point?

We have used Agile CRM at work and also got to work with Infusionsoft at another company.Infusionsoft is very powerful software for marketing automation but was too difficult to set up and learn. I understand they have made many changes but the basics dont change and that is why they require large set up fee so that they can help their users get set up.

If you compare Agile CRM with Infusionsoft just for Marketing Automation their feature set is comparable. Considering that Infusionsoft is more mature product, their features may be more stable but we couldnt justify the price difference.However, we didnt want to have a different product for CRM and sales automation as that will cost us more money and yet another learning curve. So we went with Agile CRM and are pleased with it.Which is better for you? If you are a small to midsize company, you cant afford and nor should you buy different products for sales and marketing automation

My son said if he catches me looking through his stuff again he will put me in a "spliff." What does this mean?

The term of putting someone in a spliff was popularised by a famous uk drill tune called no censor made by real gang members which got removed for outrageously saying the names of the deceased opponents of the gang, rapping by saying things like ****** got put in a spliff, which means someone got murdered, so hes suggesting that he would murder you although theres other kids I've seen in the internet use it in a way to say they would beat someone up. It looks like your son is a uk drill fan which unlike other comments doesn't suggest hes violent or can become a criminal, lots of innocent people enjoy the genre, although its quite abnormal to see him threaten to attack a parent figure or mother, which shows his violent dominance so keep a watch over him, because kids like that will think they are all tough and can take anyone down

How do I keep the sheets from coming off my bed?

If you're using a fitted sheet, make sure it's the right size for the mattress. Pillow top mattresses are a lot thicker than older ones used to be, and sheets have grown accordingly.Pull the elastic all the way down around the corners. Tuck at least the bottom and bottom corners of the top sheet and blanket under the mattress. You may have to re-tuck after you've slept in it.If the sheet still doesn't stay, you could try clips or straps. A web search on "sheet clips" or "sheet straps" should find you a variety of options.To use a flat sheet as a lower sheet, you'll need to do some additional folding and tucking. Here's one instruction:How to use a flat sheet on the bottom of a bed!

How do I tell my mom not to snoop around my computer when I ask her to put in her info for giving me more time because of screen time? I'm 14 and before anyone says you live in her house or whatever the government pays for everything house and wifi.

At 14 with that attitude, I would take the computer away. If it is needed for school, I would sit next to you the entire time.If you have a smart phone that also would be in my possession.

You need an attitude adjustment. She is your Mother. It is her duty to protect you. She has an obligation to snoop if she thinks you are doing something unsafe. I understand you don't like it, but tough. There will be many things in life you won't like, get used to it now. You'll be a much happier adult. Do what you Mother says an EARN her trust. Show her RESPECT and she will show you respect. Trust and respect must be earned. They are not given freely

What is the most difficult decision you made today?

I swallowed my pride today as a step towards mending my relationship with my sister. We have the most unhealthy relationship Ive ever had, and decided that it was time I accept responsibility for the part I played in making it that way. All the time we spent arguing about petty things, and trying to out do each other I realize now was a waste. Coming out on top is not really what we both wanted, and at the end of the day we both ended up feeling bad and isolated from each other. What we really wanted was to have a stronger connection, but got caught up focusing on what is insignificant. It is not easy to apologize and admit faults, but I felt something shift after I did and am hopeful.

What thread count and brand bed sheet do five star hotels use?

Although there is no universally accepted standard, most five star hotels have a bedding thread count between 600 and 1000. However, thread count matters only in relation to the quality of the yarns used versus the quantity. Good quality yarn used in 400 thread count sheet could be considered a better investment than poor quality yarns in a 600 thread count. But as a general rule, it is seldom that five star hotels go below the 600 thread count.With regards to brands - the market is huge, you need to perform a thorough research to find the brand that suits you best. Some notorious brands are Royal Hotel, Mayfair, California Design Den, Feather & Stitch and Urban Hut. Please do note, that many five star hotels have their beddings custom-made, rather than buy what is already out there on the market.

I'm 15 and want to start investing into something that will get me somewhere in life. I want to be successful so bad it hurts. Any advice/tips or tricks?

As a 15 year old you'd be most successful investing in yourself. Spend money to make things more convenient so you can learn better or network more. Money spent on improving your economic potential is the best return you will see. You should have a good idea of where you can improve and put your time and effort into that (and money if needed but most things can be accomplished for little money).Where I would use money: mental health and efficiencies.... Mental health... get a better chair, light, bed sheets. Efficiency: pay for fast internet if useful, buy a bike for class if you'll learn more because you aren't late from walking, or network with a TA in college by asking if they want to grab coffee.

Common Questions for Buying Used Bed Sheets
Does my Mazda CX-7 leak motor oil? I find that when I've traveled about 100 miles my motor oil is almost completely gone. Do you have this issue?I have edited my original answer. My original answer was sent in by me at 12:30 AM. I was very sleepy!Your car is definitely using more oil than it should be. All cars "use" oil. However, that amount of oil consumption in such a short period of time and such a low number of miles, indicates something is terribly wrong with your engine.Determining whether your car is leaking oil is very easy to do. Go to a store that sales bed linens and purchase a sheet. You might want to consider purchasing one at a Goodwill store, since one can be purchased very inexpensive there.Drive your car a few minutes allowing the engine to warm up to normal driving temperature. Or, you can start your engine and allow it to sit and idle for 5 to 10 minutes.You then spread the white sheet on the ground and park your car over it. Make sure that the ground is dry and level.Do not be concerned about starting a fire on the sheet with your hot car. The part of the car that could start a fire, the exhaust system, is several inches away from the sheet. Plus, when you turn the car off, it will start to cool down anyway.Turn the ignition off and allow the car to sit for two hours or so. After it has been sitting for two hours or even overnight, start your car and back it out from over the sheet. You then look at the sheet and there will be some oil. Do not be concerned if you have a spot or two of oil, in fact you may even have a little larger spot of oil depending upon the age of your car.If your car is consuming and entire crank case of oil at only 100 miles, then you are going to have a very very large puddle of oil on the white sheet. In other words, you will have the same amount of oil that should have been in your crank case spread all over the sheet. It will be as if you had taken the same number of quarts of oil that are in your crank case and poured them on a perfectly white sheet!I once had an older car that would go through 5 quarts of oil on a 200 mile trip. I did not worry too much about it because the car was very dependable. I simply purchased an expensive oil by the case and placed it in the trunk. I would stop every 50 miles or so and add 1 quart.Yes, I realize this was expensive, but at the time (1967) I was in college and could not afford to purchase a new or nicer used car. I kept this car for a couple of years and added oil to it on a regular basis.It was cheaper to purchase a case of oil, which at that time cost approximately $.50 per quart, then to spend $3000 for a brand new car.Using today's money and accounting for inflation, it would be as if I spent $4.00 for a quart of oil versus $30,000 for a new car. A person can purchase a lot of oil for $30,000.My final advice to you is to take your car to a Mazda dealership and have it inspected by their mechanics. If the car is still under warranty, they should replace the engine with a new one or do repairs on the current one.Depending upon how much the repairs cost on the existing engine and if you are going to pay for those repairs yourself, you might consider buying a late model used car.There are some used car dealerships, both local and national, that will offer you a limited warranty to cover the problems you are describing.Since I am a proponent of purchasing good quality used cars only, I suggest you go to a place such as Carmax. Carmax will also gladly sell you an extended warranty for the car you purchase.The extended warranty will give you a longer period of coverage for major mechanical problems.I have never used Carmax myself, but for a person who does not know how to find a good used car, purchasing from Carmax is the best way to go. Purchasing their extended warranty will guarantee protection even further.In spite of the bad reputation that used car dealers have gotten over the years, there are some reputable used car dealers who will not cheat you by srolling you a bad car.One more interesting note about extended warranties; I have an acquaintance who purchased used vehicle from Carmax. He also purchased and extended warranty.The vehicle he purchased happens to be one of the worst vehicles ever made as far as mechanical reliability is concerned. Over the course of the life of the extended warranty, he was able to replace the transmission with a new one as well as $2000 worth of repairs on the engine.The cost of the extended warrantee more than paid for itself.Friends and acquaintances who know me will tell you I have very strong opinions as to which cars are the best or worst. I am retired and for 6.5 years I worked at an auto auction. I now work for a vehicle rental agency.Therefore, after having driven 7000 cars over the past 9 years, I can claim to have something of an expertise in the quality of used cars. I know which ones are the best and which ones are the worst.It should also be noted that all of us older folks have regrets pertaining to our past. I have 2, The first is marrying my first wife and the second is getting rid of the 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air with the six-cylinder powerglide transmission and two tone painted car. Good and bad memories are associated with both regrets.RG------As a liberal or conservative, are you surprised to see such overwhelming support for Trump's tariffs?NO.I am a small business owner and I prefer to purchase native products because I trust them more.My current business model is a restaurant which is easier to stock with American products, one of the reasons I went this route. I've owned a clothing shop and a lawn care business and a second hand store as well. Buying American is actually hard, harder than it should be.When I buy American I'm putting more money in my local and regional economy, this is good for my potential customers as they have a better chance at seeing the tertiary economic impact reach them.This is the true definition of "trickle down economics". It's not when rich guys dole out money, it's when workers disperse that money.Now to be precise, I don't really consider Canadian and Mexican products to be truly foreign. They are effectively a part of our extended economy. So I generally give a pass here, a not insignificant amount of my glassware is of Mexican origin.Small business owners are keenly aware of what our customer base has available as discretionary income. You can tailor your target demographic to a degree but that will only get you so far. Money is money and when money gets tight in the general population, revenues will depress. Depressed revenues cut into operational flexibility and prevent upgrades until they are absolutely necessary.The whole population is tired of disposable junk. We want to buy something and have it work in its intended use and not really have to think about it beyond cleaning and maintenance. Many of us will pay a higher price for better goods to have that piece of mind.You cant go to WalMart or Target and get that though. Shops that sell niche products or specialize will often look for domestic products and smart salesmen will absolutely point out that something is American Made because everyone likes that. Japan and Germany do some things better and that's ok. Mexico does some things better and that's ok. China might do a few things better and that's ok too but China's model isn't better, it's faster and cheaper.If I sold a guy pants and the crotch splits, he is not coming back to me for pants. He might not ever say a word to me but I just lost repeat business and for a small business owner, repeat business is the only business.------If you have ever been hard on your luck, what are some creative ways you have had to get by/survive?More than most people can handle or would want to know about me.For me much of my life has been a lot of people trying to screw me over all the time. It forced me to find ways to make it. I stopped playing by other peoples rules, playing by other rules gave them power over me, so I stopped playing by their rules. I wouldn't call myself lucky! Someone came up to me and gave me something recently and said "This means you're lucky, because you're always lucky!" It's kind of further from the truth I'm just better at surviving.I made quite a lot of mistakes, but over time I got better. I had to learn to charm and be entertaining. Most people's lives are kind of boring and I'm a natural risk taker as long as they felt they were getting something from me I trade it off for something else. I got food and a lot people offering me a place to stay simply because I was charming and entertaining. I always saw that people wanted that in their life to have someone like that around, it's a lot of work and exhausting but I took something over nothing and I always got offers and sometimes they were traps to keep me prisoned. Being charming and entertaining makes people want to keep you in their life.I used all my extra clothes to make a bed. I put a lot of clothes on the floor put a sheet over it and made my bed.Buying things from the store people liked, which I knew they liked and they'd give me something I need in return. It works more with women than men, I don't recall it working well with men. Men tend to think they deserve everything and think of themselves and women typically think of what someone would like and if you buy women something they're pretty content that someone about thought about them.Just be myself really. Everyone's got enemies and some people would just help me, because I'm myself and people naturally know people who are on the same page as them. You can always find help with people who you're naturally on the same team with and have similarities. I knew I'd find these types of people and not to say "I would help them out too.!"I'm not going too much into it, I don't think it's right for Quora.
