Hands the Same Color as the Easter Eggs? Remove Dye from Hands.

Hands the Same Color as the Easter Eggs? Remove Dye from Hands.



Problem: Tia, how do you get dye off the kids hands after dying Easter eggs?

Tip from Tia: Having a blast coloring eggs for Easter with the kids, is a lifetime memory. But, you don't want the kiddos to have that color on the hands by the time Easter pictures roll around.

A quick way to remove the dye from their hands, without using anything too abrasive, is peroxide. Take the kids over to the sink, have them cup their hands and pour peroxide into their hands and have them rub together.

(Side Note: Make sure they don't have any large cuts on their hands. Warn child of the funny tingling sensation while applying; give them a heads up if they've never experienced an un-painful use of peroxide)

Let it sit on the hands for a couple seconds to a minute, rinse and then wash with soap. Repeat process if necessary.

Being Negative, Can Trigger Negativity, Tips on Triggers:

By Tia Cristy


Being Negative, Can Trigger Negativity, Tips on Triggers:



Have you ever made a negative comment and noticed it effected the people around you to become negative too? It's contagious. Though you may not have meant to change the mood, it can instantly happen. The conversations can quickly snowball into negativity. Doing this too frequently can cause a long term negative outlook on your life, which can result in depression and other mental aliments.

So if you find your self having a negative thought or saying a negative comment, try to follow it up quickly with a positive response or thought. For example, "This weather sucks!" follow it up with something like, "I was so glad I didn't need to stop for gas today to get to work, that was great!" or "Look at the way that person is dressed!" follow it up with something kind like "but, I really like those shoes. I'll have to go shoe shopping soon." Doing this will help you be less negative, yourself and to help the mood of those around you.

Even though negativity is contagious, remember so is happiness. Force yourself to have a positive outlook and soon, it won't have to be forced.

Beautiful Days Mean Allergy Nights?

By Tia Cristy


Beautiful Days Mean Allergy Nights?



So, depending upon where you live, there may be some nice weather days in the forecast. But, does nice weather equal bad allergies for you?

I know some people don't agree, but if you suffer from sever allergies to molds and pollens, it's best to keep those windows closed during the day. Even if everyone else is bragging about their cross-breeze, you are going to be able to breathe better knowing your windows stayed shut.

(SIDE NOTE: breezy days cause the most trouble with mold and pollen spores)

Keep the room feeling fresh with fans and spore killing aromas like Eucalyptus oil, or turn on the air conditioner if needed. Make sure the units you use, are clean for the upcoming season before turning them on, causing the scattering of old dust.

Stupid Tip of the Day: Vacuum the Carpet, It's Clean.




It may look really clean after you vacuum, but some grime really stays deep down. There can also be living dust mites living in the carpet.

So a quick tip to get that stuff out of the rug and out of your home, is sprinkle the carpet with some cornstarch.

The cornstarch will kill the dust mites and loosen deep down dirt. Suck it up with the vacuum and now the carpet is fresh.

Add a little bit of essential oil to a bag with the cornstarch to make the powder fragrant.

Cleaning mini blinds are a pain to clean. Taking them down, finding the right cleaner to put on them and then, finding the scrub brush to get them clean.

Quickie: It's Quick Enough to Wash Your Hands.



Probably the most simple quick tip ever. Wash your hands. You can sanitize hands as quick as singing your ABC's. Soap up with antibacterial soap while singing and rinse at the end of the song. This amount of time is said to be the proper amount of scrub time to rid the hands of almost all germs and viruses.

Washing your hands can prevent the spread for some pretty scary stuff. Many deaths happened before the invention of the bar of soap. Since its arrival, many germs have been washed away. No pun intended, okay maybe a little pun.

Setting the Mood. Tips On Triggers:

By Tia Cristy


Tips on Triggers: Setting the Mood.



Trying to set a sexy mood can be easy, but some feel they have no clue where to start. The 5 senses are the things to trigger when creating this moment of love.

Sense of sound- Playing a background music that your partner likes is a good way to set a mood. Remember keep it low, only as a background noise so you have no interruptions of communicating.

Sense of smell- Picking scents that appeal to your partner is always a good start. Try to stay away from food smells if you are trying to skip a meal because that can wake up a stomach instead of the libido. (SideNote: Vanilla is known to be a good aphrodisiac for men. Women usually react better with a floral scent like lily or jasmine)

Sense of sight- Looking like you've gone a little extra on your appearance is a good way to trigger a complement from your partner.

Sense of touch- Exfoliate your skin, shave and add a natural oil like almond or olive oil to get an extra soft touch.

Sense of taste- Making sure you have a clean taste with maybe a touch of sweet to the skin is always a treat. (SideNote: Sweet doesn't mean sticky, stay away from flavored lubes until your partner is involved with your plan. Remember these are triggers to get you and your partner to the bedroom)
