What's the best way to pick up little pieces of broken glass from a tile floor?
I dropped a jam jar in my kitchen a few weeks ago. I picked up the large pieces with my hands and threw them away. Then I went over the floor with a wet paper towel to pick up the smaller pieces of glass. Finally, I vacuumed the floor to try to pick up any pieces I might have missed. However, now two weeks later, I am still finding small pieces of glass both in the kitchen and in surrounding areas. Any suggestions on how to really clean the area and make sure I've picked up all the glass from the floor?
Systematically go over the floor with wide packing tape, sort of like a lint grabber.
Use two pieces of paper (computer paper, even a white thin cardboard paper) and turn it into a makeshift broom and dustpan. It maybe time consuming but it can work (depending on the size of the pieces of glass). By the way the more people you have to help, the faster
Packing tape is probably the best solution. However, if it is not available, take newspaper, moist it with water and dab over the small broken glass pieces....this should be helpful.
Thanks! I think your wet newspaper would probably do a better job of picking up the little pieces of glass than the paper towel I used. I will try the paper towel after using the packing tape. I hope that will get all the glass up. Thanks again!
pick up the big glasses, sweep the floor, wipe the floor with damp paper towel and then use the masking tape

I normally use cough medicines which work short term but when it's the cold and flu-ey season again, I get a cough back again. Are there natural remedies which work on a cough?

Do you forget important things, while leaving home and come back to pick them up?

The last couple days I've gone into edit mode to delete my alerted broken links. However, the links are no longer highlighted pink (or at all) within the text, so it's unknown which ones they are. The end result was I...
