How To: Use natural products to clean your home without toxins

We all want to spic and span our kitchen countertops, our tile floors, and our bathrooms. But for the most part we can bet you've been unwittingly using storebought detergent cleaners or bleach. While these cleaners are in fact excellent at removing grime and buffing your dirty floors to a Midas touch perfection, they also come filled to the brim with known cancer-causing agents, synthetic chemicals, and other gnarly, hard to pronounce crap.

How To: Make a homemade sugaring paste to remove hair

Unlike typical waxing, which strips your skin of vital moisture, causing inflammed and dry, itchy skin as well as ingrown hairs, sugaring is a slightly more gentle way of removing hair. Because of the fact that it's all natural, made generally of sugar, water, and lemon juice, it irritates skin less because there are no artificial ingredients and harsh chemicals.

How To: Unclog a slow drain without calling a plummer

In this video Erin Bried shows how to unclog a slow drain without calling a plumber. First put 1/2 cup of baking soda down the drain. Then pour 1/2 cup of white vinegar in the drain. The two ingredients react when put in the drain together. After about 15 minutes have gone by take some boiling hot water and pour it down the drain. Once the water has run out of the bowl you can test the drain to see if it is clear by running some tap water into the sink. The water should run out of the sink ju...

I've found that bleach can leave a yellow stain ...

How To: Balance chemical equations using a teacher's guide

In this video we learn how to balance chemical equations using a teacher's guide. A chemical equation is a brief way of summarizing what happens inside of a chemical reaction. When you mix up two different chemicals, they will create new types of chemicals in the equation. You have to take these new chemicals into equation when you are trying to balance it out. The mass on both sides must be the same as well as the number of different chemicals on each side of the equation. Try out practice e...

How To: Balance chemical equations

n this tutorial, we learn how to balance chemical equations. This is a straight-forward concept to balance out both sides of the equation of chemicals. To start, you will need to analyze how many atoms in each chemical you have on each side. Once you do this, you will need to find what you can multiply by on each side to make them equal to the other side. Once you do this and have equal atoms on each side, then the equation will be equal. Remember that you cant have a half of an atom, so that...

How To: Balance chemical equations with Olivia and Andrea

Olivia and Andrea created a song to the tune of "I'll stand by you" by the Pretenders to teach you how to balance chemical equations. A chemical equation requires coefficients in order to be balanced. You can balance a chemical equation by making use of the Periodic table. The example reaction in the song is that of aluminum and oxygen to produce aluminum oxide (Al + 02 -> Al203). You can systematically add coefficients to the reactants and products to balance the equation. A chemical equatio...

How To: Balance chemical equations properly

In this video we learn how to balance chemical equations properly. What is a chemical equation? It's a statement that uses a chemical formula to show identities and relative amounts of the substances involved in a chemical reaction. To balance an equation out you must have the same number of atoms on both sides of the chemical equation. Or, you must have the same amount of mass or matter on both of the sides. Once you have these balanced out so they are the same then you will have it complete...

How To: Understand chemical change in chemistry

In this video we learn how to understand chemical change in Chemistry. When you start out, you must first figure out what your cathode and anode is in the equation. Then, read it out to find out if it's oxidized. Once you have this figured out, you can find the conditions of temperature you need to maintain the chemicals. You can figure this out b doing a basic equation for all of the chemicals. Fill this in with the correct information, then the answer will be done. Make sure you understand ...

How To: Balance chemical equations with ease

In this video, we learn how to balance chemical equations with ease. First, you will need to take down the equation and find out how it is formed and how much each of the chemicals are in it. Draw a diagram if you need to so you have a visual key. If you figure out how many of each of the chemicals are in the equation, then you will know how to balance it out. You will make sure that both the right and left have the same number of chemicals and mass. Balance this out by adding in more chemica...

How To: Properly balance chemical equations

In this video, we learn how to properly balance chemical equations. You will see what substances are in each side of the equation. You will then need to count the atoms that are on each side of the chemical equation. Once you write down the number of atoms on each side, you will need to even them out. To do this, you need to change the coefficients within the equation. These change the total number of atoms inside of a chemical. Once you do this, you will add more to each atom present and the...

How To: Balance chemical equations using a simple method

In this video, we learn how to balance chemical equations using a simple method. Start out by writing your two chemicals next to each other. After this, you will need to write out how much of each atom each of the chemicals has. Now you will have a better idea of how you need to balance out each of the different equations. Make a chart of all the elements that are involved, then you can solve it. Use simple addition to add together the atoms of each and then write out the correct answer in th...

How To: Balance chemical equations the fun way

In this video we learn how to balance chemical equations the fun way. First, remember that matter cannot be created or destroyed. Take two different types of chemicals and put them on opposite sides of the equation. If you have more mass on one side than the other, these will not balance out. Once you have equal amounts of mass on both of the sides, you will be able to balance the chemical equation. Remember this rule whenever you are balancing out chemical equations. Use visual markers to he...

How To: Balance chemical equations the right way

In this tutorial, we learn how to balance chemical equations. The first thing you want to do is to draw a graph and label one side reactants and the other side products. Go through each of the atoms that are in your equation on both sides. Write out how many atoms are in each chemical. Then, find a common multiple that will give you and equal amount on each side of the equation. Continue to do this same for all the chemicals in your equation, then when you are finished write it out. Now you w...

How To: Describe chemical formulas

This is a video tutorial in the Education category where you are going to learn how to describe chemical formulas. A chemical formula represents the actual number of atoms of each element within a molecule. Different visual representations of molecules include the ball and stick three dimensional model, a line drawing that represents the structure in two dimensional terms, and a shorthand used by organic chemists. If a molecule has 4 green atoms and 2 orange atoms, the ratio of green to orang...
