ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — During New Mexico’s dry winter months, residents wage war on dry, itchy skin, chapped lips and persistent static cling.To increase moisture at home, solutions range from buying humidifiers to adding houseplants and indoor fountains.Customers ask for humidifiers to combat problems like nosebleeds and dry skin, says Robb Baucom, a sales specialist at Lowe’s on Paseo del Norte in Albuquerque. Indoor humidity should be 35 percent to 40 percent, which can be measured on some thermometers.Other ways to add moisture

Whirlpool shares take a bath as elections jitters knock sales

Blame the voters – Whirlpool’s shares tumbled more than 10 per cent on Tuesday after it said that consumer jitters after the UK’s Brexit vote and ahead of the US presidential election had softened third-quarter demand in those markets for washers and other home appliances.Shares of Whirlpool, which had been up about 1 per cent over the past year prior to today, hit an eight-month low on Tuesday after it unveiled earnings that were largely weaker than expected. On Tuesday, Whirlpool reported net sales fell in the third quarter of 2016 to $5.25bn, from $5.28bn during the same three-month period last year and missing the $5.3bn predicted by analysts. The company said revenue was dragged down by a weaker post-Brexit pound and UK consumer demand, and a flurry of promotional activity in the US that it said allowed importing rivals to undercut its prices with cheaper goods.Quarterly net income gained slightly from a year earlier, to $238m, or $3.10 per diluted share, up from $235m, or $2.95 a…

Tub faucet adapter for washing your dog » Dog Jaunt

Oct 2 2009Tub faucet adapter for washing your dogPhoto by Homz No matter how short the trip, Chloe invariably becomes filthy at some point and requires a bath. Most of the time, it’s no problem, since nearly every place we stay has a shower — and with a small dog, a shower’s all you need. Pick her up and hold her under the water until she’s wet, set her down and lather her up, then pick her up and rinse her off. Easy! Every so often, though, we encounter a hotel room or a house that has a tub, but no shower. Washing a dog in a tub is a pain, so we’ve added to Chloe’s travel checklist and packing list a shower head on a hose that slips over a tub’s faucet and converts it to a handheld shower. It’s inexpensive and not terribly bulky — and it sure beats wetting your dog down and rinsing her off one mugful of water at a time.
