Gather ‘round kids: I had a coworker mention to me this morning that it’s impossible to get grease stains out of fabric. As a former chemistry minor who worked two years under the table doing housekeeping and who generally tends to be a fucking disaster, I am here to tell everyone that it absolutely is not impossible, in case this is a widespread belief. Here are a few of my favorite cleaning stain removers that I always have at home.

Here are some options:

A Tide™ pen.

I’m a generic kinda lady. I hate promoting brands 99% of the time. BUT if you catch absolutely any kind of stain before it gets ground in, you can get most of it out with one of these babies. I’ve tested it on blood, chocolate, coffee, guacamole, pizza sauce, red wine on, on that one time i accidentally slopped some oil I was supposed to be using on antiques onto a fancy rug (also an antique but not the one I was gunning for). If you’re washing something delicate, pump it onto your finger a couple of times and gently rub it in. I’m not sure what they put in these things but I’m pretty sure it’s an arcane secret.

Dish soap

Granted, this is a little trickier for upholstery/carpet, but it can still be done using a rag, some water, and some patience. But for clothing, just pour some soap on the stain and rub it in under cold running water.

Absolutely any clear alcohol is your new best friend

You know the old “white wine to clean red” trick? Well, this is its updated sister I like to call “you, too, can use coconut rum to get red jello shot out of your nice white dress”. It’s a nice party trick. Straight vodka works even better. For every day situations involving any kind of alcohol-related spills (including markers)–and especially work situations–rubbing alcohol is ideal. To quote another adage, this one from every chemistry teacher you will ever meet, “like dissolves like.”

Hydrogen Peroxide

It can get blood out of absolutely anything, including your mattress. It reacts with the iron in hemoglobin, which breaks down the molecule, causing it to lose its red color. So make sure you’re not using a cast iron skillet to wash your period underwear in.

Vinegar

This will dissolve lime buildup overnight. Fill a bag, tie it around your showerhead, and presto. You can also use it to scrub the area around your sink and to break up any buildup in pipes. (Limeaway™ is for rich people.) 

Baking soda

This is great if you have a pet or child who peed on the carpet. Just cover the area, wait until it dries, and vacuum it up. The longer you leave it, the better it will do at removing the smell. It’s also good removing mild odors from a small space, like a fridge or a laundry hamper. 

Charcoal

This is your heavy duty odor killer. A little goes a long way. In chemistry, activated charcoal is used as a purifier in reactions, and in medicine, it can be used to treat mild poisoning/overdoses. In your car that smells like someone died because you forgot you had potatoes in the trunk for six months? All you need are regular old charcoal briquettes. Stick a couple handfuls in a flat box and the smell will be gone overnight. Guaranteed. For larger areas, just use more charcoal.

Baking soda is also good for stuff stuck on pots pans and your stove top. Add a little bit of water and elbow grease and it’s like magic

i was enjoying the new jay-z album for like 2 whole tracks until he went antisemitic but honestly i don’t know why i expect better of literally anyone anymore & i’m not going to watch as only black jews or just jews in general bring it up & it’s not talked about by anyone else at all

im reminded of the time that kanye was like ‘yeah jews own the entire media industry and they’re holding me back’ & when the interviewer was like ‘UH…’ he said ‘i don’t know why people saying you have a lot of money is a bad thing’

or when MIA was, in the middle of her rant about how black people didn’t ‘own rap’ [lmfao what] that it was ‘the jews who own the entire thing [media]’ who were keeping her out of performing somewhere and not, say, the fact that she was being racist

or B.O.B. amid his flat-earthery, talking about how it’s all ‘the jews’ who are ‘keeping the truth’ from everyone by virtue of ‘owning everything’

it’s that fundamental…disconnect and misunderstanding of the way antisemitism presents itself mainly [the J00Z have all the POWER and they’re USING IT TO KEEP EVERYONE ELSE DOWN] when [a] we’re just like everyone else, scattered across all classes & [b] there are always way more christians in any space or profession than jewish people but we’re focussed on bc of conspiracies that usually lead to our harrassment and/or murder

there’s no such thing as positive discrimination

also hey, the reason there are jews in moneied professions is bc you lot forced us to handle ur money bc u considered money a sinful thing but you still needed it and we were going to ‘hell’ anyway so it was the only job we could get. now everyone wants money and suddenly we’re the devil keeping you away from it

“You wanna know what’s more important than throwin’ away money at a strip club? Credit
You ever wonder why Jewish people own all the property in America? This how they did it“

WHAT. THE. FUCK.

i think what pisses me off the most is Jay-Z is arguably one of the most popular artists on the planet

how many people are going to hear that line and internalise it and take it as truth and use it as a weapon in the future, or let it colour their perception of all jewish people they meet??

millions. literal millions.

thanks, jay.

One thing that makes Steve Trevor work in Wonder Woman is that they manage to hit the “Tries and fails to be protective” angle, but without any of the normal sexism you see in that trope. 
It’s not “No honey, this is a job for a MAN, You can’t do that!” it’s “Diana! Stop! No! PEOPLE DIE WHEN THEY DO THAT! You can’t do that! I CAN’T DO THAT! NOBODY CAN DO THAT…Except You, apparently” 

Yes! Exactly! And not only that but there’s no wounded pride scene where he goes like “How could she do that?”, “Why didn’t you tell me you could do that?” blah blah blah. Instead, he’s more like “Woah, can you show me more?” and “Hey guys, you know that thing we haven’t been able to do? SHE’S DOING THE THING! LET’S GO!”

I feel all of this exceptionally strongly for having Whedon'a script floating around out there, showing so starkly how to do all of this only wrong, only awful.

I hate most hetero relationships in films but honestly Steve’s romance with Diana was not only bearable but enjoyable to me in those moments.

After the first few times she shows him her abilities, he totally rolls with it and just lets her charge on ahead. He wants to protect her, but he trusts her skills and he’s practically giddy when she succeeds.

Steve never assumes Diana she can’t do things ‘because she’s a woman.’ He assumes, rather, that Diana has the same vulnerabilities as her fellow Amazons, a number of whom he personally watched get felled by bullets whilst battling gun-weilding fascists on a beach. 

This is an entirely fair assumption to make considering even Diana, at the beginning of the film, does not realize that she is a god among mortals. Her mother raised her to think of herself as human.

Steve starts off assuming Diana is a highly competent, albeit human warrior, because she introduces herself to him as an Amazon, and he’s seen the Amazons in action. He knows what the Amazons are capable of. He’s seen them die from bullet wounds. He’s also seen them win a battle against technologically advanced fascists using only bows and arrows and parkour.

As soon as Steve realizes that Diana has godlike powers, he adjusts his expectations accordingly. He no longer expects her to have the vulnerabilities of a human warrior once she’s proven otherwise.

.

The thing about Steve is, he’s not consciously trying to be a feminist ally. He’s just reasonable.

He makes logical conclusions based on his observations. He draws new conclusions when he observes new phenomena that contradict his previous assumptions. 

He uses basic common sense.

And that’s the beautiful thing about this screenplay. It does a great job of illustrating how illogical sexism is, and how diametrically opposed sexism is to common sense.

If you discover someone you were flirting with yesterday can repel bullets, the logical reaction is awe. A reasonable human being would be awestruck. It would be absurd to get defensive. Yet we, the audience, expect the male protagonist to get defensive because that’s what we’re used to seeing from male protagonists. 

We are so used to male protagonists with comically inflated egos, that it’s shocking to see a male protagonist put common sense ahead of his ego. We are so used to seeing male protagonists make sexist assumptions that we are surprised when they instead draw logical conclusions. 

The opposite of a sexist is a reasonable human being.

Men: are distracted by her boobs.

Thats SexyCyborg! She posted on reddit not all that long ago and she’s super proud of her boobs. She even has a little 3d printed doll made of her that she was stoked on. She’s also smart as fuck. I mean, some of those people are mediocre at best for going for the obvious go-to joke, but whatev.

She’s also the same person that made that light-up skirt a while ago.

I love this woman and I love the fact that the dudes here literally proved her point for her

This woman needs a Marvel heroine based on her. I want to see her hack the Iron Man suit.

OH MY GOSH YES

I love it when people exploit the fact that men are fucking morons

“This shot was needed after my last project which no one believed I made. Because when they put your boobs in they suck out your brains. Everyones knows that’s how it works:-) If it’s still a problem I’ll just have to wear a GoPro for the whole process LOL” I love that (from the light-up skirt link)

maybe……… people sometimes dress or act provocatively at pride…………. because it’s the only place we CAN dress or act provocatively without fearing for our lives

maybe that’s also the reason gay people act that way in gay clubs. maybe the two gay men passionately making out on the dance floor are doing so because it’s the only place where they’re able to do that.

HMMMMM u know i think u may be onto something here! maybe gay people aren’t overly sexual degenerates after all! whom'st the fuck knew!

honest relationships and mutual respect and trust do exist. I know they love to tell you they’re just concepts on here but they really do exist. stop listening to angry singles online about relationships. you wouldnt listen to somebody sleeping in a tent telling you how to own a house like? come on

So how long after this post did y'all break up?

we’re still together and have been for almost 3 years and we just moved in together you tried it you hatin ass bitch

I agree with the OP.  I’ve been married for 18 years.  You can have a good relationship, it’s possible.  But you’ve both got to really listen to each other and be willing to compromise through out your life. 

 AND FOR FUCKSAKE STOP SAYING THINGS JUST TO BE HURTFUL WHEN YOU’RE MAD.  It isn’t worth it!  that’s an agreement that both of us made when we got together and it’s worked really well for making our relationship work.

like what stupid frenchman saw this:

and said “zis petite légume looks like a, how you say, APPLE! hmmm… but it grows in ze earth… HON HON HON! MAIS OUI! C’EST UNE POMME DE TERRE!”

j’adore comment ananas se dit pineapple en anglais, ce qui veut littéralement dire “pomme de pin”, genre quel type anglais a vu ça:

et s’est dit : “ow cette étrange big fruit ressemble à une, how do you say, POMME! hmmm… mais plutôt une pomme qui pousse dans les pins… HU HU HU! OH YES, IT’S A PINEAPPLE!”
(z’avez vu, on peut le faire aussi… hon hon hon!)

According to my Dad the Republican™, people who want the minimum wage raised “don’t understand what it’s for” and that the businesses he worked for when he was younger would have had to change their entire business model to accommodate it so I just wanna say, controversial opinion here apparently, but if your business can’t afford to pay its employees a living wage it’s because uhh your current business model ain’t worth shit. Lol

Considering that when your dad was paid minimum wage it most likely went a lot further than the current wage…

http://ift.tt/1fi2qzM

That last part of the OP’s statement is actually the reasoning behind why the minimum wage was established.  The companies and corporations of the day levied the same argument back then, that their companies couldn’t survive while paying a minimum wage.  This is what FDR said in response:

“No business which depends for existence on paying less than living wages to its workers has any right to continue in this country.  By living wages, I mean more than a bare subsistence level — I mean the wages of a decent living.  Do not let any calamity-howling executive with an income of $1,000 a day, who has been turning his employees over to the Government relief rolls in order to preserve his company’s undistributed reserves, tell you – using his stockholders’ money to pay the postage for his personal opinions — tell you that a wage of $11.00 a week is going to have a disastrous effect on all American industry.”  (1933, Statement on National Industrial Recovery Act, and 1938, Fireside Chat, the night before signing the Fair Labor Standards Act that instituted the federal minimum wage)

hey no offense i mean this in the best way but if someone you love is talking about stuff you don’t understand and is very passionate about it (like idk nuclear energy or astronomy), you can a) listen anyway even if you can’t add anything because they’re probably just happy that someone can hear them b) ask them questions about it so you understand if you’re interested because they will surely be willing to answer and happy that you care

you may not care but it means the world to someone that you’re willing to just, listen, when anyone else would just not care about being nice to them about their interests.

Even if you’re not interested but are listening anyway, I recommend asking questions about whatever it is that is being talked about.

For example, I have a friend who loves tanks. I know very little about them, and don’t have any interest in them. But when my friend starts telling me about them, I ask for clarification to show not only that I’m listening, but I care about what they’re saying as well.

I also will ask questions. For example, “is this tank better than that one because of [feature], then?” To try to engage them in this subject that they love, and show them that not only am I listening, but I’m properly paying attention as well.

some followers may already know this about me but one of my favorite plants is a cool neato technical wildflower called the Eastern Skunk Cabbage. 

this is what a blooming Eastern Skunk Cabbage looks like:

these plants are so comically disgusting like

-they smell like rotting flesh if you accidentally crush the outer part of the flower

-they like to live in mud and bogs and prefer environments where they can have cold running water over their roots at all times

-they’re pollinated by flies and beetles

-they bloom in really late winter and casually heat themselves up and just burn through the snow. like they just casually do that for two weeks out of the year

-these bois are not annuals. no. these bois are deep rooted and there to stay bitch. like if you cut their main tuber in half, you can see them already starting growth for the outer part of their flower for blooms up to ten years in the future.

-i did an entire research project on them and their heating mechanisms because theyre a really good example of the protein im interested in, the Alternative Oxidase Protein 

-these bois actually measure the exact outside temperature and adjust their inner bloom temperature to keep it perfectly steady. we dont know how it does this yet, we just know that the measuring mechanism is in the outer part of the flower. 

-they’re native flowers in the midwest and up through canada 

-theyre my stinky muddy bois and i love them

eatingcroutons:

leproblematique:

In response to this bit of wankery and nonsense. I’ve been sitting on this post for months, until I decided that, fuck it, I’m posting it. I kept warning that Tumblr would end up here. And what a surprise, I was right! What was my warning? That the Discourse would eventually go thusly:

‘You can enjoy erotica, either written or visual, without being accused of fetishization, only IF:

you MATCH at least one of the characters in terms of gender;

you MATCH at least one of the characters in terms of sexual orientation;

automatic disqualification if the genders of none of the characters match your own, even if the sexual orientation of one or both matches;

automatic disqualification if the sexual orientations of none of the characters match your own. Exception to the rule: no disqualification if your gender matches both characters; (the exception is meant so we don’t end up with mind-bending enormities like bisexual men / bisexual women not allowed to enjoy content where the characters / performers identify as gay / lesbian or vice-versa, but at the way things are going, I wouldn’t be surprised if we got there as well). 

special rule: we have no fucking clue how any of this applies to nonbinary / genderqueer / agender / genderfluid people, so we’ll err on the side of caution and say automatic disqualification unless one of the characters’ genders matches their own.’

It sounded completely barmy and beyond ludicrous when I first typed it out, yet here we are!

This is the extreme, logical end-point of Tumblr’s cardinal sin in this particular discourse: the insistence that fetishization is caused by the PERSONAL GODDAMN IDENTITY of the individual going through a particular erotic work, instead of the NATURE of the erotic work itself.

This is how fetishization got warped and completely bent out of shape from an act (presenting something in a way that’s stripped of all context, complexity, nuance, steeped in dehumanization and slinging it against other living persons) to a state of being (the mess of rules above, anyone without the mandatory gender and sexual orientation combination enjoying the content from an erotic point of view, regardless of how complex, humane, nuanced and emotion-driven the content itself is).

Then you’ve got the second cardinal sin that Tumblr falls face-first into, every single time: personal discomfort getting elevated to the status of law. You see it constantly:

‘you mustn’t ship this particular ship because it’s abusive and it’s the equivalent of personally spitting in my face, even though you’ve never met me and have no idea about my situation, even though you’ve taken every precaution with tagging it’

‘you mustn’t ever like this character, because I personally hate them / they’re actively triggery to me and seeing you like them is the equivalent of being an apologist for my abusers’ 

‘you mustn’t ever dislike this character, because I identify immensely with them and they mean the world to me and if you hate them then it’s the same as if you’ve slapped me’ (went through this particular shit-show with Sera of Dragon Age: Inquisition)

This is where you get shit like hordes of anti-shippers and of people who will savage you for not being vocally hateful of whatever character they hate. And this is where you get the total warping of fetishization, turning it into a headache-inducing ‘the content you enjoy must coincide partially or totally with your identity, let us split you into concrete groups, each with its own content that they are permitted to enjoy sans controversy. Also, fanfiction is totally equivalent to porn, what do you mean we’re completely disingenuous?’ 

I’m sorry, but the idea of fandom as some space where groups and content are segregated like this is completely repugnant to me, no amount of screaming and foot-stomping will ever change that. 

Concrete example, because I am sick and tired of the whole mess: as a pansexual woman, the things I look for in relation to a man who likes to watch lesbian porn are the following:

is he supportive of queer women in his day-to-day life?

does he eschew all predatory, entitled advances along the lines of ‘can I watch?’

does he acknowledge and respect that queer women do lead lives totally and completely independent of him and his desires?

does he take the necessary steps to be a worthwhile ally to the LGBT+ community?

If the answer to all of these is a definite ‘yes’, then I don’t give a single fuck about his porn-watching habits, he can beat it to ten thousand woman/woman videos, I don’t CARE. 

I will criticize the mainstream porn industry itself in how it portrays queer women and I’ll criticize the men who permit it to negatively influence their behavior toward queer women in their lives. However, my job as a goddamn activist isn’t to dictate and police the sexual tastes of people who meet the criteria above for acceptable behavior, that’s NOT why I became an activist to begin with! Frankly, that shit’s fucking creepy and controlling on a terrifying level for me and the fact that Tumblr so often and so consistently engages in it makes me find this place more nausea-inducing by the day.

If I ever go that far, I might as well put up a giant banner reading ‘radfem garbage, anti-porn, anti-kink, uwu, uwuuuuuu, someone put me out of my fucking misery already’.

“…

fetishization is caused by the PERSONAL GODDAMN IDENTITY of the individual going through a particular erotic work, instead of the NATURE of the erotic work itself.”

Identity politics endgame.

Shakira Law

Do we start with:

1. The fact that this is clearly supposed to be the One Ring from Lord of the Rings

2. “Shakira Law”

3. The implication that children either know arabic or will become muslims by eating a donut.

4. “Free Islamic Donut”

5. or that starbucks is giving kids weird donuts for free and expects there to be no questions about the intricate writing.

One donut to fool them all 

6. Starbucks doesn’t sell donuts

I can’t stop laughing at this

7. something free from Starbucks??
