Candle Too Small for the Candle Holder.

By Tia Cristy

Candle Too Small for the Candle Holder.

Problem: Hey Tia, I got new candle holders, to hold the straight candle sticks, and the candles I bought are too small for the candle holder, to stand straight, they tilt. Why would someone make candle holders that don’t hold the candle? Anyway, is there anyway to remedy this?

Tip from Tia: I know exactly what you mean, candles are pretty standard, so, why aren’t the holders? Right? Well, depending upon how much room is in there, here’s a few tricks to try.

With a small difference, light the candle and add a few drips into the holder and quickly place candle stick in to cool and seal upright.

If there is a large amount of space using a dryer sheet folded up and placed on the bottom of the candle before you insert into the candle holder. Be care if you use the dryer sheet, not to let the candle burn down to it, they can catch fire.

If it the wax isn’t holding and the dryer sheet is too big, use a used peanut butter mini cup wrapper, (you know, the brown cupcake wrapper thing) it can usually do the job, and is more camouflaged with darker colored candles.

Can’t Put Sneakers in the Washer. Stupid Tip of the Day:

Stupid Tip of the Day: Can’t Put Sneakers in the Washer.

Actually, you can put sneakers in the wash, I just think there are some ground rules in doing so, for example…

I wouldn’t recommend washing more than 2-3 pairs at a time.

Don’t wash sneakers with clothes. To me, it seems to be equivalent to rolling around on the ground outside, everywhere you go. We don’t do that, usually anyway.

Don’t put sneaker in the wash alone, they’ll be fine, but your washer would probably appreciate the padding. So, put in a couple of old towels or a fabric drop cloth to brace the washer and dryer during cycles.

Don’t remove the shoe laces, I know from experience, the colors won’t match later.

And, for a deeper clean add a little vinegar to the wash with the detergent.

Don’t forget to wipe down the inside of the washer if shoes were pretty dirty. A quick swipe with a slightly soapy rag or vinegar soaked rag will do the trick.

Easter Egg Dye Kit at the Store is Better. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: Easter Egg Dye Kit at the Store is Better.

If the kids are begging for an Easter Egg dye kit from the store, but you don’t have the funds to splurge to make sure that they get that magic invisible crayon. You can just say, you got it covered already without feeling you’re depriving them.

The kits are fine, but they can be expensive if you don’t have extra cash. Food coloring will give you any color you want to make, just as good as what comes in the kit. Remember the primary colors; Red, blue and yellow. Red and blue make purple, blue and yellow make green and yellow and red make orange. Using food coloring allows you to make as many colors and as dark and vibrant as you like. Just don’t forget to add the vinegar to the hot bowl of water to make it stick to the eggs. And, if you have to buy food coloring, feel confident that you’ll have those colors for many Easter’s to come, if that’s all you are using them for.

Those little cardboard rings that hold the egg while drying, are easy enough to recreate using foil. Fold the foil less than a half inch repeatedly until you have a firm long piece of foil. Cut several pieces where they can comfortably make a ring to hold the egg. Push the ends together to hold the ring shape and sturdy enough to hold the egg. (seen in above photo)

Kids always seem to have stickers stashed somewhere, allow them to use their own stickers on the eggs to decorate, as if it’s a big treat.

Now, that magic crayon; get a white candle stick break it into pieces giving a piece to each child to use before dying the egg. The wax will keep the dye from sticking.

If you want to make the memory more memorable for them, and you’re brave enough, you can allow the kids to help make the colors with you using the food coloring while teaching them how colors are made.

But you need to shake off your cabin fever, so what is it time to do, in the the yard? Now is the time, to cut back those trees and bushes that aren’t populated with leaves and bugs. While doing that, you’ll get some much needed vitamin D. Remember, have the right tools for the job.

Freezing the Odor Out of Your Shoes. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: Freezing the Odor Out of Your Shoes.


There are many tips out there that people say are true, I try to give you the tips that are true, and point out the ones that aren’t.

I heard freezing your shoes will remove odor. Fact is, freezing the shoes can sometimes only freeze the bacteria and fungi that is making the shoes smell in the first place, so once it is frozen, some top layer, bad stuff, may die off, and the smell will go away. But, once your feet warm up the shoes, the bacteria and fungi that didn’t die off, will thaw, have an extra moisture source and begin to grow again. And, may make the situation worse.

So, freezing is not the way to go, kill odor with vinegar. Wiping shoes down with a vinegar soaked cotton ball and letting it dry will kill the bad stuff and reduce the smell. Keep this in mind, bacteria and fungus can penetrate deep so I recommend rubbing shoes down with vinegar once a week, even if there is no odor.
