      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

shower doors cleaners

Recommended Posts

1) my shower doors are clear plastic(textured) but i cant get clean. they are milky in appearance. any ideas or recommendations on how to get them clear? i heard comet but the wife is vetoing that. if i had to choose one thing it would be gasoline or something solvent to cut through it. (i know that is extreme but it has worked for other applications with due care)

2)also my shower stall basin is white plastic but is getting dark. i hate to use a rough scrub for fear of opening a hole or

harming by making it thin. any advise would be so appreciated.

thanks

I use something called The Works Tub and Tile Cleaner. As much as I hate shopping at WalMart, it's the only place I can find it. Some stores sell stuff made by The Works but not the same thing. The active chemicals in it are Oxalic acid and Sulfamic acid, if that helps identify it when you're shopping. I use it to get rid of iron stains on my tub(fiberglass) and in my dishwasher (plastic interior made of what?). It works immediately. It does put off a rather strong odor that more than likely should not be inhaled.

I agree with your wife not to use comet. The comet that I remember is an abrasive powder. That probably isn't going to work to well on the plastic doors.

You need to use an acid based product for both problem areas. Preferrably, something that will foam on to give you some contact time. Don't use any petroleum products on plastic and by all means keep the gasoline out of the bathroom. Stop by the Home Depot and check out some of the Zep products on the shelves for cleaning bathrooms...just make sure they are acid based. Acid is the only thing that will eat through the mineral problems you are having.

Red, we use the same stuff and I think my wife gets it at target. I don't think I have set foot into a Scab-mart for over 3 years.

(Needed a fishing license in Iowa at 5 am.)

As for the product, it works great. I think any soap scum remover will do the trick, spray it on, let sit, if you are gutsy use a green scratch pad on a corner to see if it scratches the plastic.

Try Mr. Clean magic erasers, they work on fiberglass tubs to get scum off. They are also safe for glass top stoves. Maybe try a small corner first- if they don't work you will still find many uses for them. Even take scuffs and marks off painted walls without removing paint- Good product.

One thing to make sure of when you select a product (I can't think of how many times I need to remind my wife of this), is to make sure that it says "safe for septic systems" on the label...if you have your own septic system.

It'd be a big bummer to have clean shower doors, but a frozen septic tank because you killed the bacteria.

Since I cannot use spray on household cleaners due to asthma, I had to find other solutions to clean our shower. Sounds odd, but heat up some vinegar, get the doors wet, and scrub them down with either a rag or a sponge. It may take a little more elbow grease, but at least I can still breathe.

For our shower, we purchased one of those Mr Clean Magic Reach cleaning wands. It has a mild scrubbing surface on the pad that won't damage the shower walls. The pads come with cleaner in it, so you don't have to spray anything.

otherwise ive had good luck with CLR on my fiberglass tub. the yellowing and lime from hard water. it was great. i mixed it strong at 50/50 and put into a spray bottle from the local dollar store. spray on let sit rinse. if that dont work spray on srcub lightly then rinse.

Even easier.....Use Vegetable oil! SERIOUSLY!!! My wife uses it on our shower doors (they are just like you discribed) Take a bunch of papertowels,and rub vegetable oil into them, than just wipe the crud off the glass.

It will work!

We just pop the doors off every 6 months or so, and rub them with veggie oil...it works great.

sorry took so long...

i tried the "works". did not work on the cloudy doors. i also used vinegar which helped alittle. i researched and there are tons of recommendations. i think its down to baby oil or vegetable oil right now...seems like this is very common with these doors. there are literally hundreds of posts on this when you search this. thanks everyone for their help...

    • Only made it out for one day for resident opener this last weekend but we had a great hunt. Took the day off and got out yesterday and battled the heat. I almost chose to call it quits early but went slow and took our time but had to take lots of breaks in the field. It was 74 degrees out and if I found water the dog got dunked. Was pretty slow day didn't see a single bird or shoot my first bird until 3:30pm. Ended up shooting all 3 of my birds in the same WIA in the span of an hour. Dog pointed a group of 3 hens in the same spot and then another by itself. Went about 30 yards further and dog locked up. Flushed bird it was rooster and dropped it on the first shot. As I shot 2 other roosters got up in gun range. With just one shell left in my O/U I rushed a shot going for a double, doh. Focused on where downed bird went down and sure enough another rooster gets up in the same spot it went down. Rushed both shots thinking it was the same bird I already knocked down. doh x2 Fortunately dog was able to retrieve first bird so was nice to put one in the vest for our first bird of the year. Took a water break and regrouped as that was a lot of excitement in a short amount of time and dog was overheated. Sat there for about 20 mins and let dog catch his breath. Started working field again and we no more and got started and dog locks up. Flush bird and its a rooster and he only needed one shot before he folded. Retrieved to hand and continued on.   Continue working to end of the property and saw a few more hens and one other rooster that I didn't want to drop over the water and thick cattails. He didn't fly far and hoped to get him on the way back as we walked side we hadn't covered yet. Dog locked up again on the other side and I let the bird get out a ways. Dropped it on the first shot and figured we were done for the day as it folded hard. It ended up being a runner and took off straight for the mud and thick cattails. We tried to track it, found some feathers so thought we were right on it. But once the dog got buried deep in the thick stuff it was just too warm. No scent going through there and he was getting way too overheated so I called him off the track.  We did end up getting our 3rd bird of the day with another nice point and retrieve. Was a good day to be out despite the heat. I spend the rest of the day scouting out other areas to hunt. Put about 350 miles on the truck and other than that one walk didnt see anything else. Did shoot a couple coons though and found a great set of antlers.  Unfortunately I forgot to bring my gopro and only took a couple pics.
    • I have had good luck with the eagle claw inline reel and love the freespool option. I have 3 of them and they all work great.
    • A few scrapes in the woods, cameras show the big boys moving at night still but they are around. Another week and I will start light rattling. I am  saving my best spots for Halloween on, unless a camera shows big boy daylight activity.
    • Think I saw somewhere that is Parise missed 10 games he can go on LTIR, between him and Coyle out 8 weeks we should be fine with the cap. Way to take one for the team boys. 
    • Great job for this kid!
    • I have to stop procrastinating, ice will be here before I know it! I made a little progress lately, I painted the inside, installed cedar accessory boards and thermostat and hopefully by this weekend have the rubber flooring down. I also ordered the termination cap for the furnace, should be seeing that in the next week or so. I also have a custom cushion being built to fit my bench seating. Got a question on rattle reels, I am looking at the all aluminum ultimate  rattle reels. Anybody use them? They seem a little spendy but not too concerned about the price, looking to see if there are any reviews out there. If those don’t seem to fit your need, what other brands have u used and feedback on them would be nice also. I will take some pics this weekend for a quick update.  
    • Sport's Show is a great place. I purchased the grey Frabil for under $200.00 But that was 5 years ago
    • You mean like Chicago is doing with Hossa?  Great idea...think of the space that would clear up!
