This is your post-tattoo cleanup guide. Here’s what I covered in this, my 81st episode:Ummmmm but here’s one thing I TOTALLY FORGOT to address: Blood. Yup, smahtie pants over here completely left out the blood stain removal instructions from her tattoo cleanup ep. Good job, Joles! Of course, my archives run deep, so here you go:Over in the bonus episode, I’ve got some other work-related updates to fill my premium subscribers in on. Lots of fun stuff a’brewin’ in Clean Person-land.
In what has become a grand holiday tradition in my home, late on Thanksgiving evening the panicked text messages start to roll in from friends: "Jolie, help! My uncle knocked over a full glass of red wine on my mom's best tablecloth!" "Oh God, Jolie, I upended the entire turkey on my Grandmother's tablecloth. What can I do to remain in the will?" "Jolie I hope you're awake, I did something bad. How do I get wax off a tablecloth?" The tablecloths, you see, take a terrible beating.
This is your Master Course in sneaker care and cleaning. David Cho, the founding publisher of The Awl Network and Grantland, joined me for what might actually be a perfect episode of Ask a Clean Person: The Podcast! In the first segment, we talked all about cleaning sneakers, from regular old cleaning of regular old kicks, to deep cleaning a pair of really filthy tennis shoes.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
