Out of all of your laundry, towels may be used the most. However, unlike most of your laundry, towels are usually used to dry off after you ve made yourself clean. Have you ever wondered how clean water can make a towel smell so bad? PSometimes we blame our washing machine or laundry soap, thinking It must not be strong enough. However, the real causes of towel odors are usually much more simple to resolve. Towels are supposed to get wet, right? Yes, but they are not supposed to stay wet. If you throw your wet towel into the hamper or leave it wadded up in a ball on the floor, it s going to stay wet. And while it is wet, it is going to create the perfect environment for germs and mold to grow. This is the same issue that happens with that aren t left to dry properlyPor different that fail

As the cartilage deteriorates, painful, sometimes debilitating, swelling begins to occur. In the hand, the areas where this most often occurs are the: Middle End joint, which is closest to the finger tip is the most common form of. It causes progressive degeneration of cartilage. It can happen with aging or following an injury, such as a fracture or. When it affects the hand, it causes: Bony nodules may also form at the middle or end joints of the fingers. can also cause deep, aching pain at the base of the thumb. The hand may also become weaker, making everyday activities difficult. Treatment depends on the severity of the pain and disability. ...
Why do we call the final baseball series, the World Series? Fred asked: We play the World Series in the USA but no teams we play are outside the United States. Also how did the World Series get it's name? Rick answered: Fred, thank you for your question. The following information is provided by: In 1904, Reach Guide reported on the first official "World Championship Series", played in 1903, using a name first coined in 1886 by the Spalding(of athletic equipment fame) Baseball Guide, in reference to the post-season game between Chicago and St. Louis. Spaldings editor noted that since both teams were already "Champions of the United States" in their respective leagues, the winner of the post-season games would be "world" champions, hence the "World Championship Series". Spalding continued
Chloroplasts are tiny factories inside the cells of plants. They are also found in the cells of other organisms that use photosynthesis. Chloroplasts take the energy from the sunlight and use it to make plant food. The food can be used immediately to give cells energy or it can be stored as sugar or starch. If stored, it can be used later when the plant needs to do work, like grow a new branch or make a flower. Inside chloroplasts are special stacks of pancake-shaped structures called thylakoids (Greek thylakos = sack or pouch). Thylakoids have an outer membrane that surrounds an inner area called the lumen. The light-dependent reactions happen inside the thylakoid. Our cells have mitochondria (Greek mitos = thread, and khondrion = little granule), our energy-producing structures. We
What Causes Menstrual Cramps and Period Pain? What causes menstrual cramps? Most women ask this question at some time in their life. It seems that when it comes to that time of the month, although nuisances are all to be expected. However, crippling period pain, heavy bleeding, serious fatigue, and other symptoms that affect your quality of life are not. With menstrual cramps, mild to intense abdominal cramping begins within 24 hours of the start of your period and continues for days. Symptoms of period pain include: Dull, constant ache But what causes cramps during your period? Menstrual cramps are generally categorized as primary dysmenorrhea, which is caused by the elevated production of prostaglandins, hormones produced by the uterus that cause it to contract. When you have strong
Food-based fats and oils are predominantly triglycerides, with three fatty acids attached to a glycerol backbone. The chemical structure of the fatty acids determine whether the fat is monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, saturated or trans. Both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids have fewer hydrogen atoms connected to the carbon chain of the molecule, making them flexible enough to be liquid at room temperature. Saturated fats, in contrast, contain the maximum number of hydrogen atoms the carbon chain can hold, which renders them rigid. Trans fats are also inflexible, having had additional hydrogens artificially added to a formerly unsaturated fat. ...
You re Crazy, Mike! I have heard it more than once. Everytime I explain this phenomenon about plants, I get the same skeptical reaction. Plants have a mission: Catch the sunlight, convert and store the energy when you can. Grow later. During photosynthesis the plants grab all the light, carbon dioxide and water passible. With those ingredients that plant makes sugars, starches and other vital compounds. What about plant GROWTH? Not yet. Make FOOD while the sun shines. Save cell division and elongation(growth) for the night shift. Watch the video below of basil growing in time lapse. It has a slow start but finally starts to take off. You will notice two really neat things. The leaves move outPand wide, then the plant suddenly jumps taller then the leaves move outPand wide again, then
Do Polar Bears Exist in, a spectacular land of ice, framed by rigid waters and home to a plethora of hardy creatures? Read on to find out! So do Polar Bears Exist in Antarctica?? is home to a kaleidoscope of incredibly fascinating creatures, but polar bears are NOTPamong them. Although, given the harsh climate and abundance of icy fields, you could be forgiven for thinking they do. From a wildlife-loving perspective, however, the more interesting question would be: could polar bears live in Antarctica? Lets say, hypothetically speaking, that we were to smuggle a few fluffy polar bears aboard one of our (now wouldnt make that for a fun adventure?! not that wed ever do that) and set them loose in the White Continent. What would happen? Could they survive? What would the consequences be on
If you ve ever had a drink, you know it sent you to the bathroom, but do you know why alcohol makes you pee? Do you know how much more urine you produce or whether there is a way to reduce it? Science has the answer to all these questions: Why Does Alcohol Make You Pee? Alcohol is a diuretic. What this means is, when you drink alcohol, youPproduce more urine. This happens because alcohol suppresses release of arginine vasopressin or anti-diuretic hormone (ADH),PPthe hormone that allows your kidneys to return water to yourPbloodstream. The effect is additive, so drinking more alcohol increases the level of dehydration. PAnother part of the reason you visit the bathroom more often is because alcohol also stimulates the bladder, so you ll feel the urge to pee sooner than you would
Earth is called the 'blue planet' because of the large amount of water on its surface. Most of that is salt water, and the rest is freshwater. We usually think of freshwater being in lakes and rivers, but you might be surprised to learn that about 98. 5% of all the fresh water on Earth is actually found underground! That's right, all the lakes, streams, rivers, and other freshwater bodies on the surface only make up 1. 5% of Earth's total fresh water. Collectively we refer to all that underground water as groundwater. Much like surface water, groundwater doesn't stay in just one place. It moves through deep channels underground as well as through the soil itself. How does it do this? To understand, it might help to think about soil or sediments as a jar of mixed nuts.
