Hack my hygiene! Yesterday I fell, hard, and broke 3 fingers on my left hand. (It's now wrapped in a stiff splint, with only my index finger and thumb operative, waiting to see the doc this week).

My bathroom has black mold growing at the top of the wall/edge ofthe ceiling. The wall is white paint over drywall, and the paint has been blistering and revealing thick black mold under the paint/ on top of the dry wall. This area of my bathroom sometimes leaks due to another leaky bathroom being located rght above my bathroom. My questions: 1. How quickly do I need to take action 2. Can I resolve this myself, safely 3. If I clean it, what chemicals do I use 4. If I clean it, what safety gear do I need (breathing mask, gloves, etc) 5. If I clean it, what are my health risks and can they be easily treated with antibiotics/quick doctors visti? 6. Should I burn the house down and run right now?
I have a new baby and taking a nice long shower is now a thing of the past. I've been using my husband's Pert Shampoo+Conditioner but it makes my hair feel dry and doesn't de-tangle well. Is there a combined shampoo+conditioner product that will actually make my hair feel nice after I use it? Bonus points for hypoallergenic or fragrance free.

We have a drip drip drip in the shower and had the plumber look at it when he came to service the furnace. Unfortunately it's not just the gasket; the actual valve stem is broken.

The man I am in a relationship with and I had sex for the first time last night. I like this man. He has many great qualities. However, I am fairly smell conscious. When I suspect sex is involved I shower, thoroughly out of preference and consideration for my lover...however last night there was an issue. He had bad breath and body odor, to put it gently, in more than one area. How do I handle this situation without offending? How does one nicely say; brush your teeth and shower before we go on a date or plan to have sex? This could be a deal breaker for me if I can't figure it out.

My shower (an in-stall water heater) sometimes smells like something rubber is burning. It's a strong acrid smell that I only notice while in the shower and usually only after a sweaty workout. There is no sign of smoke like you would expect with burning rubber. Is this just some sort of weird sweat and treated water chemical reaction? Anybody heard of something like this?

One thing: Why is it I come up with all these ideas in the shower. What about the shower make it easier to focus? How can I replicate the shower without having to take a shower?
