  • Someone turned on a car in a closed garage for like 30 mins not knowing about CO poison. house is connected to the garage whatshould we do?

    Best answer: Anybody with a headache that doesn't go away with fresh air should get hospital treatment. Open exterior garage door, keep door between garage and house closed. Open one window in every room, open interior doors, turn on central furnace fan if furnace doesn't start. It should only take 5 to 10 minutes... show more

    Open exterior garage door, keep door between garage and house closed.

    Open one window in every room, open interior doors, turn on central furnace fan if furnace doesn't start.

    It should only take 5 to 10 minutes to ventilate, but the fire department usually waits 30 minutes.

    Maybe for future get a CO detector, they are only $15 http://amzn.to/2yMXaDL

  • Can I use a food cutting board in place of the X-Acto mat when using an X-Acto knife?

    I'm only using the knife once for a project so I didn't want to invest in a mat. I have both the wooden and plastic cutting boards for cooking and am wondering if that will suffice?

  • Why my lights keep flickering or dimming.?

    So in the past few days I’ve noticed the lights flicker a lot or dim dramatically then go back to normal over and over. Sometimes even a fan that’s on will turn off then you hear a buzz in the walls for 10-20 seconds then the fan comes back on, is this something to worry about?
