Everyone should beware of the teeth whitening ads on Instructables. One of the advertisers, Dazzling White, is a fraudulent company which, once they have your Credit card number, will continue charging your credit card forever. If you complain, they say they will send you an email to opt out but you will never get the email. They will charge your card in advance of sending you their product so you will get billed 2 or 3 times before you ever get anything. Their offer is a "trial" sample for which they will bill you something like $8. If you read the small print, which no one ever does, it says you have to cancel within 10 days of receiving your trial else they will charge you the full $80+ dollars, will enroll you in their "program" and start billing you $80+ every month. I had to get my credit card company involved in order to get them to cease and desist. No amount of pleading with them on the phone will work. They claim to abide by their "terms and conditions". I've been on the Internet a long time and this is the first time I've ever succumbed to fraudulent activity of this magnitude. I'm out $160 that I will never get back. Instructables!!! You need to get these crooks off your site. It's giving you a bad name. If you search the Internet, you will see hundreds of complaints about these crooks. Spread the word!

Recently (as in for a few weeks), my bowl of algae has developed white goop floating in it. It looks like flour, and sticks together like flour. I (intelligently, I believe) have not tasted it, but it or something else in the algae smells terrible (well, worse than how terrible algae already smells, lol). I'm worried because Im donating samples of this algae to my middle school to use for experimentation, but a few, um, white things got in the samples. I really want to know what this stuff is. If anyone wants pictures, I'll upload some,. but basically it looks like flour and floats on top of the algae.

I was at a party and the chips changed. After much research, I found that the chips had changed from yellow to white corn chips. The yellow was much better but I never knew there was a difference in a chip. I do understand mans 10,000 year cultivation of corn BUT what is the difference between white and yellow corn? Thanks

Does anyone know how to remove white glue from a fixed chair? I'm fixing chairs for a pub around, but lately interchanged the wood pieces of the upper left and right. I noticed this 6hrs later, when it was too late to disassemble/tear things out. I know, basically it's possible to do so with water or heat, but in this case the glue is in the chair itself, so i guess, i can't heat it up - i thought about putting the chair into to a tub to soak it with water, but then i'd have the problem that even the chair's wood itself is soaked. Any suggestions?
Question by Luziviech 2 years ago | last reply 2 years ago
Ok, this is now driving me crazy. When I pour a glass (empty glass, no ice yet) of water (filtered, old filter) the water is clear. Pour over ice and big puffy white flakes appear. At first, I think that there must be crap in my ice. So I buy a silicone ice cube tray and use filtered water to make ice cubes. Second iteration: filtered water over filtered ice. Results: BIG FLUFFY WHITE FLAKES. So, that didn't work. My next thought was that maybe I messed up with the ice cubes. So, I switched to distilled water for the ice cubes. Third iteration: filtered water over distilled water ice cubes. Results: BIG FLUFFY WHITE FLAKES. Again I found myself with nasty debris floating in my water. What's next? Oh, maybe it's the detergent I used to wash my glasses. So, I wash a glass by hand with Dawn soap. Fourth iteration: filtered water over distilled water ice cubes. Results: you guessed it... BIG FLUFFY ****** WHITE FLAKES. Gotta say, it makes me want to pull out my hair! I just don't get it. So, here's my question: what's causing the white flakes? I read somewhere that cold temperatures can cause certain salts (not table salt) to precipitate out of solution. This can also be the case with Magnesium and Manganese. Does anyone else have a solution? I just want to drink some nice clear water. I thought for sure a Brita filter would do it for me.
Question by kakashibatosi 4 years ago | last reply 1 year ago
I just came back from my local electronics store and was kind of shocked to find that the price for a white LED is 2 bucks from where I come from, which is about US$ 0.62 each! I was thinking of buying 100 of them which ends up around US$62.00!!! Is that the standard price? It doesn't look like the regular LED, it's somewhat smaller and shorter in size, with a flat head instead of the usual rounded ones. But the price difference is so big! The standard round headed one's are only US$ 0.09 each! But the funny thing is the salesperson told me that round headed LED's DO NOT come in white, only red, yellow and green! But in fact I bought them before from another store but sadly they are out of business now so there's only this other store left in my city. So my point is, is that the standard price at your local store? How much do you pay for a single white regular LED? PS. by 'regular', I mean those with rounded heads and can commonly be found almost everywhere such as toys and decorations. Also I'm not referring to those high powered LED's used in modern flashlights. The pictures below shows the regular LED, and the one which I saw at the local store which has a flat head.

Question by Terriestephens 7 years ago | last reply 7 years ago
Black or clear will not work, and that's all I can seem to come up with on google. White and black on opposite sides could work, but I can't find the size I need. Speaking of size, I need it to be 16 to 20 feet wide (and similar length, but rolls could be longer); most seem to be 100' for sizes that wide. One other requirement- reinforced sheeting will not work, I will need it to have a smooth surface when I'm done. Thickness matters less, but obviously the thicker the more expensive and I think 4 mL would work fine. What's it for you ask? Sorry, but it's a secret, at least for now.

Question by jeramy2327 5 years ago | last reply 8 months ago
This may have been asked in a different format if so please accept my apologies. I have bought some cheap Tilly/Storm lamps that would normally be filled with parafin and have the materail wick lighted to achieve the glow of the lamp. I would like to replace the liquid based light with a set of warm white leds. I've also bought a small round adhesive/stick on plastic light unit to try and understand how they work. Having opened it think this will suit my needs in the Tilley lamp. Pressure downwards on the top surface of the light unit switches the LEDS on and pressure released switches them off. The power for this light unit is from 3 x AAA batteries. I would like to either make my own 3 LED light unit from parts but what items do i need and where do I get them from or understand how to replace the bright white LEDS in the light unit I've bought for warm white ones but how do I do this? I believe that the length of the two stalks comming out of an LED indicates + and - but is the longer one +? Also when it comes to the small triangular shaped circuit board on the original how do I tell the + from the -? Any help will be very much appreciated as these Tilley Lamps/Storm Lights would look good in the garden at night as well as inside. Many thanks, Bernard

Do I need a driver for the WiiMote? How do I get it on the HID list? Keep in mind that my laptop doesn't have built in Bluetooth hardware. The control panel has bluetooth options, but when I open it, I can't do anything from there. It doesn't see any of my devices. The Blue Soliel wizard sees and communicates with both the Wiimote and my Blackberry.

After literally hours, I can not locate small quantities of warm white led's with what is sometimes described as "filament white" color temperature. Most warm white LED's are a much cooler 3000K. Any suggestions? Ideally a 3 or 5mm discrete LED. Images of warm white led's are unreliable. A color temperature description is necessary. Anyone? Thanks! I received a sample of these, but their color temperature is actually much closer to 3000K. http://www.ledtronics.com/Products/ProductsDetails.aspx?WP=1922 2017 UPDATE: 2200K (and warmer) LED's are finally becoming more commonplace in bulbs, LED tape, etc... so I'm keeping my eye out for more component and project LED's to also include this warmer range.

This year's White Elephant Sale to raise funds for the Oakland Museum of California is coming up! The 2010 event runs March 6-7, 10am-4pm, at 333 Lancaster Street in Oakland near the Fruitvale BART. It's billed as "the biggest, the best, and certainly the most enjoyable rummage sale in Northern CA," and while I haven't attended too many other rummage sales, this doesn't sound far fetched. The (carefully vetted) pile of goods absolutely stuffs the 96,000 square foot warehouse, which is sorted into themed departments. It's insane, and an excellent place to find weird and wonderful items for your next project. Pro Tip: If you go near the end of the day on Sunday, you'll find discounts on the remaining stuff - some departments will charge a flat fee for everything you can fit into a paper grocery bag. Bonus: all proceeds go to help the Oakland Museum, which is currently undergoing renovation. I'm a huge fan of their natural sciences exhibit, which features some excellent dioramas showing California birds, reptiles, and mammals in their native environments. Truly good stuff.

Hi, I posted this topic: https://www.instructables.com/community/Outdoor-water-fountainhow-to-silence-homemade-p/ and both repliers suggested that I get a submersible pump. Being in Egypt, I can't find one unless I pay ridiculous amounts of money. So, I made one using a handhelp air blower. It works, it gets the water up to the 10-12 feet easily. It is waterproof. No leaks. (There was a small leak before revising, but now none) I've only had it on for a max of 30 seconds for testing. At about 30 seconds, when I pull it out, the box is filled with white smoke. Smells almost like electrical burn but not quite. What would be the causes of this? Is the water too much strain on the motor to turn? Is there maybe some water droplets that were just burning off? Is my pvc pipe enough ventilation for the motor as it does get hot, but I don't know how hot is too hot? Could I use a dimmer switch to turn the motor down some, would that not put so much strain on the motor instead of having it at full speed? Sorry for so many questions. Thanks!
