LPT: If you read a good Life Hack: read the comments too. The top comment is usually a reason why it’s untrue or a better tip.

I've noticed in the past few months that an Life Hack:'s comments are far superior to any of the posts themselves in most cases.

Also, I'm posting this cause I kinda wanna see why this is wrong too.

YSK How to Cure Athletes Foot

YSK How to Cure Athletes Foot

The cure below will only work with extreme preventative maintenance which can be accomplished with a simple routine which I outlined below.

Treatment:

1) Clean Foot with soap and water
2) Apply some chlorine powder from a Chlorine Pool tablet to the infected area.
3) Wait 5 minutes and rinse off chlorine powder
4) Repeat once every day or once every other day.
5) You should start seeing results in less than 1 week
6) Stop using this method if no results after 2 weeks
7) Lotion can be applied after treatment in minimal amounts if your skin is sensitive and dries easily.

Preventative Maintenance:
1) Clean shower \ Disinfect shoes regularly
2) Switch out your socks as often as possible
3) Wear sandals or open toed shoes when possible
4) Apply Foot Powder to your feet when ever you have to wear shoes
5) Clean feet immediately after wearing shoes
6) Once Athletes Feet appears to be gone, continue this maintenance

Thats it! It works great and is super cheap.

I use the word cure loosely as it is almost impossible to cure athletes foot. Using the method above you can keep it under maximum control. Once the fungus is dead on your foot, keeping your foot dry and clean will make it very difficult for the fungus to spread. The problem is the creams and other commercialized products do not ever seem to kill the fungus but only slow it down.

Treatment in action: Using a Chlorine Tablet http://youtu.be/YkSMadDA1gk
Result: Cured Foot http://youtu.be/hzJ-YvroGcU

Good Luck to everyone who has this issue.

I wish you all happy feet!

Edit: virus\fungus

What do hospitals do with body parts/organs removed from patients?

What do hospitals do with body parts/organs removed from patients?

What happens to severely damaged limbs that are amputated or excess skin from weight loss after it's removed? Or cysts and tumors? Do they just throw it away? Are they used for research?

LPT: If you do shift work, make a point to be nice/friendly to the people that work the shift before you. If they like you, they’ll do what they can to make your shift easier for you.

I work graveyard shift in a nursing home. We have several halls and we're moved around on a regular basis. Every day the scheduler makes out a paper to where you can see which hall you're working on and who's working the shift before/after you. If the people who come on shift after me are people I like/get along with, I'll make more of an effort to get little extra things done for them to make their morning easier. For example, I'll try to get some people dressed or set out outfits for them, clean up rooms a little bit, or set out extra bed linens.

LPT: If you pack lunches for work or school, always keep a handful of ketchup (or other sauce) packets in your lunch bag. Unopened packets don’t need to be refrigerated, they cost nothing, and they can rescue an otherwise bland meal!

Of course, check to be sure they don't need refrigeration, but most don't. They're also great for sharing! I also bring keep a supply of plum sauce, soya sauce, mustard, and salt and pepper!
