Just wanted to hear this company's thoughts on these and the classic and often overlooked "Other Ingredients" and their safety profiles.
I've been reading and looking at various studies about CMC and gut health lately and questioning why I shouldn't just toss anything with it.
Needing some wisdom here.
Hi everyone !
I occasionnally like to play bass with a mute. Way too occasionnally to justify buying a bass mute, plus from my personnal experience, a piece of sponge is more than enough (also tried foam, but I prefer sponge).
I lost the one I had cut especially for that, so I bought new sponges today. Cellulose sponges. I'm used to synthetic ones, both for cleaning and muting the strings, these seem better, they are the right thickness and density, and they mute the strings very well.
However, I can feel there's something inside. Something a bit greasy. I read somewhere brand new cellulose sponges contain a product that prevents them from drying, that must be it. But can that product harm the strings (or even the bass) in any way ?
Thanks in advance !
This video shows that sublingual tablets are taken under the tongue, dissolving there. It's more effective taking sublingually than orally. In my case I take estradiol and spiro orally, of which both are caplets.
I'd like to start taking them sublingually, but I've not heard of caplets being taken sublingually. Does anyone know whether it works or have some experience?
For example, do I've to chew the capsules or will they dissolve sometime?
Have 60 bags left to do
I have at least a dozen Home Depot’s within 25 miles of me. Only 1 has a blower- one of the older ones that blows maybe 150lbs/hour (the big green box one). I used it and only got 20 bags done in an entire day (admittedly it came to me with a clogged hose so it took a while to sus that out). We timed ourselves, it would only do a bag every 15 minutes without it becoming overwhelmed and burping insulation all over my driveway (yes we were breaking it up into small pieces)
One other HD store close to me (literally 1 mile away) usually has one in stock (the high performance one that does 450lb/hr) but some asshole has had it rented for months. Literally months. He’s prob running a side business with it. Broke a belt, had them fix it and then took it again.
Lowes only has the attic cats from what I can tell (for fiberglass).
Found only 1 other local company that has one for $640 for the day. Granted it’s a powerhouse and does 2800lbs/hour, but I’d like to keep costs down a bit.
Very frustrating. Prob gonna just rent the expensive one and be done with it since I’m prob paying the difference in high gas usage costs right now, but wanted to see if anyone here had any other ideas.
Hey ya'll. I have like R12 equivalent Cellulose in my attic. I had a professional company come out and ask 10g's for like 800 square foot attic. They said I needed to remove cellulose before putting down fiber blow in.
Why do I need to do this and why i can't i just blow more in?
Also, with it being such a small area can i just spread it by hand?
I'm new to this sub but I was going to renovate my attic and I realized that I currently have blown-in cellulose insulation and I was going to use blown-in fiberglass insulation.
Is it okay to mix the two insulations? I'm just looking over my home inspection last year from when I bought my house and there were no issues with the attic, no moisture present.
I currently have 10-12 inches in my attic, and I live in Alberta, Canada so it can get cold up here.
Thanks for your help in advance, first time home owner with very little experience. Trying to see if I can DIY this project myself rather than paying a company to do it for me.
Thanks everyone for the feedback, I ended up mixing the two. My only option was fiberglass as all of my hardware stores did not supply cellulose. My insulation now is more than enough, but my total cost for this DIY was ~ $630. My cheapest quote was ~ $900 and most expensive was ~$1500.
We are going to be insulating our attic with blown in cellulose. They will rent you the blower for free at home depot if you buy 20 bags of it which is about how much we need. What happens if we don't end up using the 20 bags? Can we return the bags and still get the blower rental for free?
New England, zone 5a for planting... the attic is tall (8' from floor to ridge) and vented at soffit and ridge.
Currently have faced fiberglass batts that were builder installed in 1989 between the original 2x8 joists.
The batts have gaps, they were clearly laid down after drywall for ceilings was in because the face paper wings are still folded in and I can lift the batts easily.
The house had a mouse and bat issue in its history, so the batts are a bit nasty in a few spots... it's also not air sealed which has been leading to a lot of air headed up protrusions through electric boxes, there was also some lack luster remodeling been done leaving some questionable wiring.
I'm at a point where I feel I'd like to pull up all the FG batts so I can see everything -- correct any wiring issues, air seal everything with foam, raise the floor w/ 2x8s 24"oc placed perpendicular to original joists, add blown insulation (would be ~15" w/ the original plus new 2x8's) and then finally add 1/2" ply as a floor for storage.
My root question is whether a VB is needed in my situation if went all blown cellulose... but I'm also interested if anything proposed is a disaster. The storage would be bulky but light stuff (boxes of Xmas decorations, etc), so the majority of added weight would be framing and flooring.
I ask because I want to us it to try and create art with it - kinda like with paper maché.
This approved for use in houses, between walls for instance. It can be used in kitchens and bathrooms/showers, but not for spaces that are constantly moist/wet.
It kinda puzzles me
Hello fellow scientists, I'm helping in the development of a plant based burger patty, now it was not holding together so we added methylcellulose at 1% and it forms super well now.
Thing is, I don't feel comfortable using an additive at such a high concentration, has anyone worked with it before? Is the concentration we used too high?
Personally I would prefer to modify the fat profile to include some higher melting point fats in the recipe but methylcellulose looks much more simple of a solution.
As the title says. I got a papermaking kit with a sheet of cellulose pulp, which I prepared as it said on the guide. The first batch I tried without sizing and with dried flowers (was in the kit), and the second batch I tried with regular coloured paper and a little bit of gelatine. Now the first batch is definitely more felty than the first, and there is clearly bleeding (it is fine - I don't intend to write on this). The second batch is less felty, and there is less bleeding, but IT is still quite soft and felty especially compared to regular paper. So my question: should I add more sizing? Is it a question of badly prepared pulp (undermixing/overmixing in the blender)? Or a completely third thing?
Now the process runs smoothly, and it really looks pretty, it is just the texture, I am not entirely happy with.
New homeowner here. I'm wondering what the best way to handle my 10x15 finished attic room is. It has cathedral ceilings, knee walls, a door and drywall, but no insulation between the drywall and the roof. There is a ridge vent and vented soffits on one side(wtf?) I spend a few hours a day up there playing video games. I've been using the electric baseboard and space heater to get it up to 70ish for that time.
I was initially just planning to see how that worked for the winter and if it made my electric bills skyrocket, but then I learned about ice dams.
So I had a insulation contractor come through to quote me for blown-in cellulose, but now I'm concerned about mold developing unless we also installed channels from the soffits to the ridge vent, which we can't do unless we gut the attic.
What's the reasonable thing to do here? Am I fine doing nothing and seeing how it goes, or is that crazy risky for ice dams and leaks? Is cellulose a decent compromise or is am just half-assing it and it'll come back to bite me? I'm in Rhode Island, so the winters aren't the most brutal in the country, but the snow and temperature aren't insignificant.
It seems to me like cellulose insulation might be the perfect bulk pre-pulped paper making material. Is there any reason why it wouldnt work? Maybe just washing the fire retardant chemicals out of it?
