Buying a new TV and old grease stain on concrete
2 questions, feel free to help with either or both
1) My mom is looking for a new TV since our old one of nearly 20 years finally crapped out recently. None of us really know much about TV's so we really only see size and price. She seems to have settled on something she saw on display. It's a Sony and the model number is KDL-46EX523.
We have low requirements for the TV. We don't have Blu-Ray or anything, we don't have HD cable channels and we're not going to be gaming on the thing. Ever. We're basically just going to watch regular TV and DVD's. We're looking for reliability, a good life span and portability since we may be moving in a few months/years. Does this TV fit us?
2) There are oil (I think) stains in our parking spot of an underground garage. I can't remember when they got there but even the more generous estimate puts it at about a year old. The management office has told us that they want the spot cleaned by the coming Friday or they'll bring in someone to do it and charge us $200 for it. We're going to pick up a degreaser from an automotive store but I was wondering if anyone had any experience with a stain this old. Will whatever chemical we buy actually work? I mean, if we're gonna get charged the $200 anyways then I'd rather not spend my Sunday scrubbing the damned spot.
Actually, coming to think of it, it was probably power steering fluid. I remember the mechanic topping off my old car and having the stuff bubble out right after driving it a few times. Don't know if that makes a difference.
