So even at 46 there are things I don’t know how to do. I typically look up ways to do things online, but thought maybe we could have a dedicated thread for all questions on Adulting.
Basically, if you have a question on how to do something that you think other people know how to do, ask it. Anything from changing a light bulb to doing taxes.
Alternatively, if you know how to do these things, answer the questions. Just make sure to tag the asker with your answer.
Ok, here’s a weird one: I live in an apartment and don’t drive. I do my laundry in the tub (don’t say ew ). What is the most effective way to do laundry in the tub?
Find a place to hang it where you can use your tub in the meanwhile.
@iconoclast_01 be live it or not, with a plunger. Get a clean new one and use it to plunge your clothes. You can do this in a bucket, too. They even sell laundry plungers with holes in the plunging part.
How do I poop? It’s really hard. Haven’t quite mastered it yet.
You can also buy a handheld agitator. Used similar to a plunger. Price of this one was $29.99.
They call it a “Rapid Laundry Washer” in the ad. Wasn’t sure if I should link to the commercial site but heres a pic.
How do you re-pot plants without killing them? My plants are getting bigger and will need more soil. I’ll need to do it one day.
I finally thought of one. How do I take a screenshot on my android phone? I think I did it once before but don’t remember how.
I’m too lazy to type it out, so I grabbed a link @Jinx
@bowens most androids you hold the power button and volume down button at the same time.
Get a washboard so you can scrub your clothes easier. It’s not stupid to hand wash your clothes. When I couldn’t afford to go to the laundromat that’s what I did
No problem! You’re welcome.
I mostly use pc so I only either use the “print screen” button on the snipping tool…don’t use my phone that much but it will come in handy to remember that for when I do.
How do I become not afraid of breaking my leg again on splInt?
That’s crazy, but big !!!
I’m 44 and don’t want to grow up in general. Keeping the house clean is one of the hardest thing for me to do and work hard on. I think that one thing would make me more adult like.
I could give you so much good advice on this topic in particular.
I don’t think I have ever in my life made a bed neatly.
