Trigger a fresh scent, as you vacuum. Adding a couple drops of your favorite essential oil to the filter of the vacuum before you start. The scent will fill the room as you clean and remain in the air, long there after.

It’s Cloudy, You Don’t Need Sunblock. Stupid Tip of the Day:

Stupid Tip of the Day: It’s Cloudy, You Don’t Need Sunblock.

One of the biggest mistakes people make with skin care is not using sun protection on hazy days. Even if the sun isn’t shining, be sure to put on an SPF with UVA.

Those sun rays are still beaming through the clouds and have the potential to give a deep burn, without noticing until it’s too late.

One of the worst burns I ever got was on the beach on a cloudy, cold day. So, be careful and wear your SPF. If you’re on a beach or an open area, wearing a hat to help keep those rays at bay, can help. And, wearing sunglasses in the haze, can protect your eyes from those dangers, as well.

So, the door is squeaking and you have nothing to make it stop.

De-Foam Your Brew.

De-Foam Your Brew.

Okay so normally I would answer a question today, but I was at a block party the other day and someone next to me asked his friend,”How do you get rid of the head, from the beer, dude?”

Amazing that they were standing next to me, because I was able to quickly reply a great tip.

So, if you pour a beer into a glass or cup and, the head foams up to give you a beer stache. (kegs can produce a lot of foam) Take your finger, rub it on the side of your nose and dip that finger into the beer and stir. The foam will start to disappear.

Even the slightest oils from your skin, break it down, so no more foam to inhale before taking your first sip.

Blow Dry Hair Faster. Quickie:

Quickie: Blow Dry Hair Faster.

You know when you’re in a hurry, it seems like it takes 10 times longer to dry your hair. A quick tip that actually does work, even though it may sound strange is, let your hair air dry.

For only about 5 minutes, let the air pull the moisture out, while running your fingers through it every so often. This can reduce the dry time significantly.

So take that time to put on your make-up or make that cup of coffee. Then return to your hair drying routine.

Don’t Lose the Loose Stuff in Laundry Room. Tips on Triggers:

Tips on Triggers: Don’t Lose the Loose Stuff in Laundry Room.


When doing laundry, there are times you find the mystery button or safety pin that made it through the laundry cycle. So, what do you do? Usually, put if off to the side and you’ll try to comeback for it later.

But in some cases, by the time you do, it can’t be found. Trigger a clutter free laundry area, with using a small decorative bowl, glass, candy dish or basket.

This allows one to be able to have a place for loose change or anything else that hasn’t been cleared out of the pockets of your laundered clothes, and will then be in one place, to be found again when needed.

Stupid Tip of the Day: Help Reduce Bruises.

Have you said, “I don’t know where I got that bruise”? Do you bruise easily? Or, have you just started noticing little bruises on your knees, legs and arms? Did you talk to your doctor and you appear to be in fine health, otherwise?

Some may say, “oh it’s no big deal, its just a few bruises. I get them all the time,”. That could be true, but sometimes the body gives you warning signs, about the smallest of it’s needs.

Bruising could be a sign that you are missing nutrients. Try ingesting some more calcium with Vitamin D. And, reduce your bruising by eating pineapple.

Tips in Action: Razor Burn at the Beach.


Having smooth legs at the beach is a desire, but shaving the day of, can cause some serious discomfort. The sand and salt water can cause razor burn to freshly shaven legs.

A good tip is too, shave the night before you hit the beach. If it’s a spontaneous event, try using an electric razor. You may not get a close shave, but your legs will appear to be hair free and reduce your chances of beach razor burn.

Best Way to Clean Pillows.

Best Way to Clean Pillows.

Problem: Hey Tia, what’s the best way to clean pillows?

Tip from Tia:

Some people will put pillows in the washer, and that’s fine. But, you must remember that the inside filling may not be dry, just by running it through the dryer once. I would say it’s best to run it through at least twice to insure no bacteria growth on damp filling.

The best way to clean your pillows that I recommend is steam cleaning them. You can even use the setting on your iron to steam them. Once you’ve steamed the pillows, place in the dryer to make sure all the filling has dried.

Clean your Blood. Tips on Triggers:

Tips on Triggers: Clean your Blood.

I always found it ironic that vampires don’t like garlic. Eating garlic cleans your blood. The cleaner your blood, the better it is for your immune health.

So, the best start at triggering a healthy immune system is eating garlic. Eating raw garlic can be too harsh for many, but you will still get benefits by cooking with fresh garlic. Another way to get your daily source of garlic without the smell is, garlic pills.

It may not be cold season yet, but it’s best to build the immune system up now, without all the cold germs floating around.
