Since I tried the liquid soft cleanser, will the powder be enough of an improvement to warrant purchasing?

Thanks for the info, do you know what the fixes would be, short of replacing the tub?

Where do you find citric acid? I've been using white vinegar in a jar in my dishwasher which gets rid of all water spots and cleans better with my hard water. However, I'd like to find a place to purchase citric acid crystals without relying on Amazon.

Thank you for your concern :) They're opaque and the same ones I used. They just reflected light weirdly in this photo.

So I ask the guy at home depot for the longest, thickest, blackest caulk, right?

This is the interior of a fixed window. Below it is a sliding screen window, then a sliding single pane window, and finally another sliding single pane window.

I am referring to the small 90° gap between the flooring and the metal where you can see bits of exposed concrete. Are you saying that gap shouldn’t be sealed?

My aim is to reduce pests

Are you saying that I shouldn’t caulk that small exposed area? I’m just wondering why since I don’t know.

SoySaucePrinterInk OP ,
@SoySaucePrinterInk@sh.itjust.works avatar

Not sure if this is being facetious but yes, I do. If the materials I have on hand are a fire hazard, then I’m open to using alternatives.

Thanks, are there any that you’d recommend which are heat and rodent resistant?

I’m actually a tenant trying not to deal with my landlord. But I fully agree with your take on it.

As I added in another comment, I’m a tenant.

Very helpful! One of the pipes is hot water to a sink and the other two are cold water and wastewater. In that case I think I’ll do some mdf / scrap wood then fill remaining hole with steel wool I have in hand. I’m guessing the hot water pipe wouldn’t be enough to pose a fire risk with the steel wool / mdf?

What would be the rationale there? Bug prevention?

Don’t dual hose portable AC units follow the same principle of venting the waste heat outside? As I understand it, the window AC units are still much more efficient at this as they don’t have a hose to push/pull it through.

SoySaucePrinterInk OP ,

I understand! So then given my limitation, a dual hose portable AC unit is my best option.

Thank you everyone. I’ll wipe the area first, then give foil tape a try. I might use mastic for a better seal if it doesn’t cost much more.

And if you can swing it, I’d honestly throw another small pump in there for redundancy.
