How to Remove Ugly Scratches from Wooden Furniture

How to Remove Ugly Scratches from Wooden Furniture

You do not need a specialist to repair wood scratches. In fact, you can save a lot of money and do it yourself. There's a big difference between a trendy, distressed wooden table and a worn wooden table that has some nicks and scratches on its surface over the years. While the former can add value to your home, the latter can pretty much ruin your entire decor. If you have had the same wooden furniture in your house for several years, there is a possibility that these are now at least decorated with minor scratches and abrasions. If you have children or pets, the situation is probably worse. However, before you spend a lot of money on hiring a professional or replacing your furniture, here are some DIY wood-scratching hacks that can easily hide minor flaws in your tables and cabinets. What's even better is that you only need a few common household items to repair wood scratches and restore the surface. Find out if it really is a scratch: Your old coffee table may look desperate and downright shabby, but are you sure the surface is actually scratched? Mostly, a scratch on the naked eye can only be a scratch in the wax layer. If you regularly grow your furniture to protect it from moisture and discoloration, it is to be expected that the accumulated residue on the surface will have prevented minor scratches. The best way to find out if the surface is fine is to run your finger over the scratch. If you do not feel any abrasion, it is just a blemish that can be easily corrected in most cases. WAX REMOVAL OF WOOD SURFACES REMOVED: Although there are chemical wax removers on the market, you can go the simpler (and cheaper) way by making a wax remover at home. All you need is a solution of equal parts of white vinegar and room temperature water and a lint-free, soft cotton cloth. Start by removing the dust on your furniture with a clean duster. Then moisten a cloth with the water-vinegar solution and gently wipe the surface towards the grain to break up the wax deposit. Repeat this procedure at least three times before taking a dry cloth and rubbing gently against the grain to remove the residue. Be sure to turn the fabric continuously so you always use a clean side. Once you have removed the wax layer, you will see a smooth and scratch-free surface. You can either quickly apply a liquid wood polish or use those available in aerosol containers to protect the surface from further damage. Crayons: The use of crayons may be one of the best ways to fix scratches on a wooden table and chests of drawers. All you need to do is find a colored pencil that has the same color as your furniture and gently stroke it over the scratch. Once the wax has filled the abrasion, seal it with the wood polishing spray.It may be a temporary fix, but it works perfectly if you take care not to scratch the same spot again. Nuts: This is probably the best-known method of repairing scratches on wooden furniture. The method is pretty simple. To remove scratches from wood furniture with a walnut, simply brush the walnut's meat over the scratch in the direction of the grain until the oil from the nut sinks into the wood. If you cannot find walnut, pecans or almonds can help. It is important to note that this technique is more suitable for dark furniture.

It has a white color and every Muslim man must wear it from Miqat, which is intended for all Hajj pilgrims traveling from different countries including Pakistan. Ihram is the same for all Muslims, regardless of their financial situation, race, skin color, country of origin and language.

Karachi is the financial capital of Pakistan. It accounts for a large part of Pakistan's tax revenue and has more than 25 million inhabitants. It is the second-largest city in the world by population. The city of Karachi seems to be growing faster than ever due to the increasing construction of multi-storey buildings. Each tall building, typically more than ten floorstall, was built for commercial or private use and is a wonderful addition to the city skyline. BAHRIA ICON TOWER: The highest elevation in the Karachi skyline is currently the Bahria Icon Tower. With 62 floors, the Bahria Icon Tower not only in the list of the tallest buildings in Karachi but also the whole country. The Bahria Icon Tower was built for both private and commercial use and has several floors intended for serviced office space. The remaining floors are for private use with serviced apartments. Construction of the Bahria Icon Tower began in 2012, and it will be some time before this project is completed. This towering skyscraper, with its unbelievably unique architecture visible from much of the city, is now considered one of Karachi's most significant landmarks. OCEAN TOWN KARACHI: The second tallest building in Pakistan is the Ocean Towers Karachi, formerly known as The Mall or Sofitel Hotel Plaza. The building is located near Clifton, the picturesque coastal area of ??the city of Karachi. The construction of this skyscraper started in 2007 and was completed in 2014. The project cost a total of 7 billion Pak rupees and is 120 meters high with a total of 30 floors. EMPRESS BUILDING MARKET: Empress Market was built in 1884-1889 at the height of the British Raj in the subcontinent and is named British Empress, Queen Victoria. The building now serves as a popular and busy marketplace for shopping, with goods ranging from fresh food to pets, textiles, and stationery. The location of the building was important at the time, as a series of native spays were ruthlessly killed here during the Indian mutiny of 1857 to prevent locals from participating in future uprisings. FRERE HALL: Frere Hall is a Victorian building with sprawling gardens that offers hundreds of people daily rest and relaxation. The building was completed in 1865 and originally built as the city hall of Karachi. Today it is a first-class showroom, art gallery, and library. The design of Frere Hall is mainly Venetian-Gothic with some British and local design elements. The facade, which consists mainly of yellow limestone, has several pointed arches, ribbed vaults, quatrefoil, and flying buttresses. Many walls are decorated with beautiful carvings and mosaics. MOHATTA PALACE: Mohatta Palace is one of the main destinations in Karachi, even if you only visit the city for one day. The Rajasthani design of the building was commissioned in 1927 by the Hindu prince ShivratanChandraratanMohatta, who built it as a summer house. The building used yellow Gizri and pink Jaipur stones that were loved by the then architects as a quality standard. Today, the magnificent structure serves as a museum and art gallery after the prince abandoned it when he moved to India during the historic partition. MCB TOWER: Being a hub of head offices, II Chundrigar Road was awarded another one of the tallest buildings in Karachi, known as the MCB Tower, in the year 2005. Muslim Commercial Bank, abbreviated as MCB, is headquartered in this building. The completion of this 29 floors high structure along with three basement floors took a time span of over three years. MCB Towers took skyline of Karachi to new heights from where there was no coming back. It enjoyed the status of being the tallest building in Karachi for a few years before the construction of Ocean Tower near Do Talwar. HABIB BANK PLAZA: The very first and most important entry in the list of tallest buildings in Karachi is the Habib Bank Plaza. There was a time when Karachiites visited II Chundrigar Road to take a look at Habib Bank Plaza. It was the first skyscraper in Karachi, which counted over 20 floors. Built in 1963, Habib Bank Plaza has remained the tallest building in Pakistan for over 40 years, still serving as the headquarters of Habib Bank. The title of the tallest skyscraper in Karachi, however, was deleted from another tall structure, the MCB Tower, built in the mid-2000s. DOLMEN TOWERS CLIFTON: Close to the Executive Tower, where the famous Dolmen Mall Clifton is located, there are some buildings under construction. These buildings, known as dolmen towers, are almost the same height and have the same number of floors. One thing that makes them pretty noticeable is that they park several floors above the ground. These buildings are located on the coast of Karachi, which is believed to be an ideal location for commercial activities. Upon completion, they should serve as office complexes.

Everything You Need To Know About Qurbani

Everything You Need To Know About Qurbani

Eid Al Adha is one of the two major festivals in Islam, which is celebrated on the 10th of Zil Hajj, the last month of the Islamic lunar calendar. Eid Al Adha or the "Sacrifice" marks the prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son out of faith in Allah. The festival is celebrated by 1.6 billion Muslims around the world. For men and women, prayer in the community is obligatory. It takes place in mosques and in a large area called Eidgah. Eid greetings are also exchanged between friends, family, and strangers. The celebration of Eid Al Adha can take up to three days. It is common to wear new clothes and prepare a variety of dishes. Qurbani Rules: Qurbani is a commitment that we are asked to perform by Allah (SWT). Therefore, it is important that we comply with the rules and regulations for the distribution of Qurbani meat. Every Muslim has to perform Qurbani. The only exceptions are as follows: Those who do not have 52.5 tons of silver or the corresponding wealth Those who have no sound mind Those who have not reached and exceeded puberty yet. You may donate Qurbani on behalf of other people, including those who have died. Distribution of Meat: Meat from Qurbani animals should be divided evenly into three parts. It should be given to family, friends and the poor (both Muslims and non-Muslims). When using Qurbani with a partner, the meat should be divided by weight rather than by approximation. Qurbani Performed: Qurbani must be performed on the tenth, eleventh and twelfth days of Zil Hajj, the time of the festival of Eidul-Adha, depending on the visibility of the moon. Qurbani must be performed as short as possible before the completion of Eid Salah. Qurbani Animals: Qurbani animals should be purchased a few days before the victim. They must be cared for in the intervening days. The animals that are suitable for Qurbani are: Sheep and goats aged at least one year (enough for a person's Qurbani). Cows or buffaloes aged at least two years (sufficient for Qurbani of seven people). Camels at least five years old (sufficient for Qurbani of seven people). Slaughtering: The animal should be slaughtered with a sharp knife to avoid unnecessary suffering. The knife should not be sharpened in front of the animal. No animal should be slaughtered in the presence of another. It's best to slaughter the beast yourself, but if you do not know how, you should stay present while someone else sacrifices the creature. It is also necessary to say "BismillahiAllahu Akbar" when the animal is slaughtered. Slaughtered animals may only be skinned when completely cold.
