How do I know if moldy clothes are safe to wear?

I had some clothes in storage that got moldy. I’ve washed them and they smell fine now (they smelled AWFUL before) but some still look like they have mold spots… are those just stains that will never go away now? Or do I need to wash them a few more times to get them to go away?

Need help changing color of specific object

How do i change the color of the horn to exactly the color blue with hex code '#0000FF'? I tried doing this with Picsart but then when i scan the color with a hex finder i get a hex code like '#000CFF' or '#000BF0'...

The shadow does have to be a darker blue tho if possible.

How do I get the rearview mirror mount off my windshield?

I really biffed this one. Accidentally attached the rearview mirror mount upside down with Permatex. I’ve tried hitting it with a heat gun to no avail. I’m hesitant to use a torch, imagining I’m going to damage the tinting, crack the windshield, or set my interior ablaze. Any other “safe” ideas for how to get this off??

Cannot kill the fire ants in my home.

Hey there :) I have a 2 month baby and my house is swarmed with fire ants and unfortunately I can't afford to get a new place, I have called an exterminator last week but there are just even more now, it did not work at all. Today they started biting me and im afraid they might do the same to my baby if there any way I can get them out of the house without using orthene? I want to try it but I cannot risk the health of my baby. Please help I have called the exterminators 2x and it just does not work in any way. the problem is that the entire neigbourhood 4 houses down from me are also swarmed with fire ants, if you guys say it's impossible to kill them then I really have no choice but to move and make life extremely more hard for us. But it cannot be helped then. Thank you in advance :(

How to file for custody of a child that is not biologically yours?

How does one go about obtaining custody or guardianship of a minor (16) when you are not their parent. The Paterson with custody currently is also not their parent and is abusing them. Dcfs generally does not remove teenagers from their home in my area.

Make a picture that changes

My idea is to be able to flip a light switch that makes photo a turn into photo b with the flip of a switch or lighting. I just have no idea how to start or medium to use. Pic a would be like looking through a door then pic b would just change the image that's inside the door.

How do I quit vaping?

I have been vaping for a few months and I really need to stop. My husband says he doesn't want for me to vape anymore and that he's concerned for my health. The thing is I tried cold turkey and I feel like I failed when I bought a new vape.

How can I stop? What have yall done to quit?

Edit: it's a nicotine vape.

How to remove spray paint from plastic/ps4 top cover without stripping paint underneath?

Got a ps4 when I was 12, spray painted it to paint art on it but never did. I regret it so I really wanna get it off. It's a pretty thick coat of white spray paint with no primer underneath except the black of the ps4 underneath.
