    Yeah, I think he stops having sex just so he can show his wife after some wine spills.
    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    I don't know how many people have camelbaks but sometimes the cap be difficult to screw back on/off, like wtf difficult . I think the gasket gets dried out, or maybe the screw threads.

    So I've found if you use some non-toxic grease or lube, it screws right on, smooth as a Bill Clinton apology.



    I use Frog Lube. Minty. Just put it on the rubber gasket, or even where the gasket makes contact + thread.

    I'm generally clueless about house things, but the man is good at that sort of thing... that tip was his when we first started dating and I dumped cranberry juice and vodka on my floor...
    This is a fantastic tip.

    I like the Camelbak hack. I used to borrow my brother's sometimes but I got kind of creeped out after it'd been sitting on the shelf for like half a year. I'm not sure I've ever trusted it to be clean again.

    Yeah, it can get mildewed if left for half a year. lol.

    But it's not unfixable. I did a hose cleaning post earlier in this thread Life Hacks

    But honestly, I'd just buy the hose brush they make, or a brand new hose, which is pretty cheap. The bladder itself, much easier clean, probably soak it in warm soapy water for while then scrub. Gotta air them things out if not in use, store dry.

    Buuuuut, sounds like maybe you don't use it much.

    Don't ever walk into an aircraft toilet without shoes on trust me on this. And big tip, it's cold at altitude, pack a sweater.

    Yes definitely bring a sweater! On that note: bring a sweater and/or a blanket whenever you plan on sleeping while you travel. (In a car, plane, train, etc.) You need that extra warmth when you sleep!

    Re: the bolded: Even better, I'd vote for keeping your shoes on when you're on a plane. Even when you're sitting down. Planes are stuffy enough without foot smell wafting everywhere...

    If you're pressed for time, still need to press your clothes, and have a bathroom like mine that is poorly ventilated: hang your clothes in the bathroom while you shower. The steam from the shower will (hopefully) get rid of the wrinkles in your clothes.

    "Pressed" for time, lol.

    (Good tip, though. I do that!)
