comment How to prevent heavy rainwater from jumping the gutter?
I will say this: If you don't point the water to exit into the gutter with the slope, it can still cause issues because of the turbulence it causes.

comment How can I prevent or remedy “bio slime” accumulation in a sink drain?
This is fascinating. I read recently about a company trying to sell elevator buttons as they would help reduce the transfer of germs. I may try this in my shower. I have the slime problem there.

Look up Silva dutchman on line to find a video or This Old House. He has done plenty of these through the years on the show.

comment Patch hole in skirting board
Sure, I will try to remember when I get home. The hole was from an old door handle set that I removed. It was the size of a quarter or so. You can't get any better than a dutchman, Silva style: youtube.com/watch?v=lMiTdVM7bik

comment How do I remove plastic bag print from outside surface of washing machine?
I've used ultra fine steel wool and oil on a car once to get another car's paint off of it. Small rub in a parking lot. After waxing it, it was nearly mint. It's a last resort but it may work.

Yea, automotive scratch remover might work with a toothbrush. Or steel wool with a lubricant.
