As kitchens have become more showcase-y spaces to entertain your friends than behind-the-scenes spots for preparing meals served elsewhere — and open-plan entertaining spaces have blurred the line between cooking and dining — it's natural that hardwood floors have gotten more and more popular in kitchens. While hardwood is a durable flooring option that can last decades with proper care, it's a little more finicky than laminate or tile when it comes to cleaning.
If you're lucky, you currently spend zero time thinking about your trash bag. Because if you spend any time thinking about trash bags, it's probably because the ones you have don't work for some reason. We've all had bags that have leaked, or split open, or stretched until they ripped. I've experimented with some of the scented bags and found the smell off-putting and not particularly deodorizing.
Even if you're pretty diligent about taking out the trash, there will come a time when it gets stinky. Whether you left seafood in there overnight, or something buried in the depths finally hit its tipping point, stinky-smelling garbage is inevitable. Naturally, the most effective way to eliminate the smell is to take out the bag of trash, but sometimes that smell just lingers. Most trash can bins and liners are plastic, after all, and that material's just porous enough to hold on to a smell.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
