  • Smallest Probability of Infection During or After a Shopping Trip

    https://youtu.be/3xNTNRehrE4

    When you go out shopping or bring in things you have purchased after your trip, have you investigated every step so that you have the lowest probability of picking up invisible germs? Here we will share with you things we do to minimize the risks. Depending on your own situation, you should examine your process to see if you have additional possibilities of cross contamination, and you can modify based on the principles we discuss in this video.

    In our previous video https://youtu.be/H2TUoGtAVkM we discussed short hair. If you keep longer hair on the top section, this video https://youtu.be/Yami2wd1Tg8 includes 8 different haircut experiments to show you what it would look like when you cut to different hair lengths. You may have already heard advice from professionals, but these videos show you that as a beginner, for some of the practices, you may have to do the opposite in order to lower the “bad haircut” risk. They are a must-see before you cut your own hair.

    A lot of people are afraid of doing a self-haircut because they fear irreversible mistakes. But even if you do have a family member to help instead of doing a self-haircut, the techniques discussed in this video certainly will help your helpers have more confidence, save their time, and improve the quality of what they do, so this video is not just limited to self-haircutting.

    We have quite a few other videos about face masks and face shield (PPE). For masks, we use higher pressure to test filters in face masks or filter tests under different pressure
    If your material led to a different conclusion, i.e. filter 1 is better than filter 2 under one pressure but the opposite is true under another pressure, please let us know because we have yet to find such a case.

    Have you ever questioned the validity of those odd face mask tests you come across? Some of the tests can be backed by science, but others are just promoted for the dramatic effect to attract eyeballs.

    After our video “DIY face masks in 10 seconds & improve cheaper masks” DIY face masks in 10 seconds went viral, our viewers asked us many questions about reducing the gaps. This video shows you how to reduce the side gaps with no cost, and with filters being used efficiently: reduce the side gaps with no cost Please subscribe to our channel, we will be making more similar videos.

    Is your face mask effective? How do you test the quality of your mask, especially your own DIY masks? In this video, test mask quality
    I have given you multiple strategies, you may choose to use some of them depending on what you have, and varying materials, different particles and different tools. This video can also be used to check filtering effectiveness for things other than masks such as DIY vacuum bags, DIY air purifier filters etc.

    Besides the issues of face mask shortage, we also have a shortage of toilet paper. 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. Here is my DIY solution to resolve that problem:  no more toilet paper shortage The best part — it won’t cost anything.

    What do you do if face shields are in short supply? Face shields are especially critical for medical staff, but a lot of suppliers are out of stock. This video will show you how to make your own, with two different designs you can choose from: DIY face shield

    In addition to using a good particle filtering material, a tight seal is also important: Custom, Tightly Fit DIY Face Mask

    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?

  • Everything About Mask Testing

    https://youtu.be/8mCPB8n065Y

    When you test filter materials at home, you may have different particles available to you to use or different equipment to detect the particles. Therefore one method may not suit all your needs. In this video I am going to show you 3 levels of particle filtering tests I have invented for your face masks or filters. These presentations are improved and updated a bit from the previous videos in which they were shown.

    Many viewers commented on our previous video questioning the validity of higher pressure tests. We answered the questions and believe our test is a reasonable extrapolation. If your material led to a different conclusion, i.e. filter 1 is better than filter 2 under one pressure but the opposite is true under another pressure, please leave comments below because we have yet to find such a case.

    In this video, we mention our previous video of “Easiest & Cheapest Way To Fix an Overheated Laptop In 30 seconds.” If your compressor gun is different than the one in the gas station and you are unable to connect to the bottle, I offered a simple solution in that video, here is the URL Clean laptop in 30 seconds

  • WOW New 11 Ways To Open Any Hard-To-Open Jar Lid

    We’ve all had the annoying moment when we just couldn’t open that jar. Lucky for you, if you watch my video, you’ll never again have to watch any other.

    My ways are guaranteed to help you no matter what situation you’re in, and no matter what kind of jar it is. Whether the jar is vacuum sealed or stuck with honey or something else, I’ve got you covered!

    Don’t forget to subscribe for more genius videos.

    You may always want to know the best way to do things. The best way depends on what is the problem. The problem could have different causes.

    If you just want to purchase your opener, here is the link: Opener

    If you could not open a jar, it could simply because you were turning it in the wrong direction, but assuming you didn’t make that mistake, there is only one reason why you can’t open it. That is, your force can’t overcome the resistance of the jar. For that, you may blame either the person or you may blame the jar. 🙂

    If you prefer to blame the person, there are 2 possibilities. You either have weak fingers or a weak wrist/arm.

    Weak fingers can’t apply sufficient force perpendicular to the surface to generate sufficient friction, thus your hand slips. To compensate for this, we can use many non-slip materials: rubber glove, leather glove, wide rubber band, balloon.

    To turn the lid, you should use your arm instead of your wrist to turn the lid, because your arm is much stronger, and wrists can be easily injured.

    If you feel that your weak wrist or arm is the problem, you can leverage your force by using tools with long handles. The longer the handle, the less force is needed. For example if you can extend the length of the pipe wrench, or the oil filter wrench, you will gain more power.

    If you think the jar is the problem, you need to investigate the 3 possibilities of what is causing the high resistance.
    The 3 causes are the vacuum seal, high friction on the threads and liner, or solidified food. You need to match the tools you have to solve each problem.

    Two solutions to break the vacuum: either prying or tapping.

    Prying: you may buy special tools, or you can use a beer bottle opener, a spoon, a butter knife or a screwdriver to poke around the jar’s perimeter so that you can introduce an air leak and break the vacuum.

    Tapping: You may use a wooden cooking utensil to whack the top of the lid. You need to whack it hard but not so hard that you break the glass. You hope it will break the vacuum as well as unstuck the lid. You can also use the back of a knife to whack as long as you’re careful.

    If a jar is vacuum sealed, then there is often a seal button, see here. If this button or the lid pops up, it means the vacuum is broken. If you have high friction on the threads, you may use a heating method. Reduce friction: Heating the metal lid will reduce the force needed because metal will expand more than glass.

    The heat source could be your stove, hot water, hair dryer or cigarette lighter.

    There are two common types of jar lid, one is continuous threaded where the jar and lid are both threaded in one continuous bead. It is similar to a nut and bolt. To open it, you need to turn at least 360 degree. Since the thread is long and gradual, you may potentially have a tighter seal, thus it may be harder to open it.

    The second type is lug or called twist-off type where the container has multiple threads and the lid has an equal number of lugs or tabs that grip the corresponding threads. You can see a few nubs here. To open it, typically you need to turn the lid less than 90 degree. This is easier to keep clean and free from sticky product.

    Sometimes a jar that has been opened before will still be tough to open if the contents are something sticky, like honey. When the lid is heated, the honey or other sticky substance should soften or melt, making it easier to twist open.

    Finally, if you have a jar of honey or something sticky, you can put some plastic wrap over the thread so that it will be easy for you to open it next time.

    Note: if you heat the jar, you may not heat too long because even though the vacuum has negative pressure, heating would generate vapor and thus may create positive pressure and explode.
