re: Update in OP: Get smell out of Rtic soft sided ice chest - bmela12
Thanks, TJ. I tried that and it definitely did not work. I’ve tried soaking it for a day or two and also try just wiping it down. It’s almost like the smell goes away until the second you close it back up again, then it pops back up. ...

Update in OP: Get smell out of Rtic soft sided ice chest - bmela12
[b]Update 7/10/19: Tried all suggestions, lost cause. Everything worked until it was used again. As soon as you go to use it, the musky smell returns. It never returns strong, but enough to tell you it's there. So, in the trash it went. RTIC soft sided ice chests are not made for smells. [u]Thanks f...

re: Siding Question - bmela12
Thanks, Bleger! I'll definitely look into it. I like the idea of not using a hardie specific blade. Less cost. Thanks again....

re: Siding Question - bmela12
Thanks for all of the input. I was overly concerned with biting off more than I wanted to having to change out the soffit and fascia boards. Hardie is a good choice and if I understand what you're saying (about the ability to leave wood soffit and fascia), that may be the optimal route. With tha...

re: Siding Question - bmela12
Thanks! I don’t have much siding, should I want/need to replace it all. Not that money isn’t a factor, because it is, but with what little I have it wouldn’t break the bank either way....

Siding Question - bmela12
I currently have wood siding, soffits, and eaves. I am moving a window and door, which means I will need to redo the siding in that area. My house is 90% red brick, with the siding near the doorways. Should I go back with wood to avoid having to replace the soffits and eaves as well? Hardie board...

re: Question for dog owners - bmela12
I have a 70lbs lab that drinks like a fat guy doing a cannonball into a kiddie pool. This bowl catches 99% of the water while she drinks. Nothing you can do about the water dripping, besides maybe trimming the hair? [link=(https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00425FV4Y/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_mY5wCbE2EPFT0)]I...

re: Israeli Scientist Has Found Cure for Cancer? - bmela12
If it is posturing and they do get VC/grant money....good for them. If it’s real science, then posturing is what they need. If it’s crap science, then it won’t be long before that comes out. They talk a big game, people are (might be) watching now. And those that say big pharma won’t let this hap...
