Bleach Kills Everything. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: Bleach Kills Everything.

Bleach is a great sterilizer, and it can kill many germs and bacteria. But, it isn’t the strongest fungicide if you have mold. Yes, it will kill molds and mildew. But, it’s best feature is wiping out germs and bacteria.  

Mold has roots that can grow down deep, and bleach will tend to only kill and remove surface mold, sometimes missing the root. That allows the mold to come back again and again, multiplying down at it’s roots.

Using Hydrogen Peroxide on mold is the best plan of attack, on molds. It can penetrate deep into the surface a kill if off, without the return of it, from the same mold source.

When dealing with hot peppers, wear rubber gloves. Be sure not to touch your face, eyes or skin until you are done prepping and hands have been wash thoroughly.

(Side Note: First time pepper users, leaving the seeds and inside stem in your cooking adds full heat to the pepper, if you want a dish more mild, discard the seeds and inside core.)

How to make the ground not so slick around your swimming pool.

How to make the ground not so slick around your swimming pool.


Problem:

I have
an in-ground pool, which we love. But, it’s hard to get the kids to not run
around the pool. We are so afraid one of them is going to slip and get severely
hurt. Is there anything we can do to make the ground not so slick?  Annette, 40

 

Tip from Tia:

Pools are
lovely to have on hot days, but there is a lot of care that goes
into them, including the number one thing, safety. Always make sure you have a first aid kit close to
the pool, and make sure all pool guests know of it’s location just in case a of
a sudden mishap. Make a sign that has your pool rules, where guest can see them. Be sure to tell the kids the rules together, in a group, so the kids understand, everyone was told the same thing.

Getting kids to slow down around a pool is a constant job. Their
overwhelming excitement to get out and back in the water, as quickly as possible
can make your lifeguard duties, a full-time job. Making a game out of walking
slow around the pool or giving “time outs” for not following pool safety, can
help in slowing the kids down when out side the pool.

A home quick tip to
slow down certain surfaces, around the pool is, cornstarch.

Before the pool bunch arrives
at the pool, sprinkle a dusting of cornstarch around the pool. Use a broom to
spread it into the dry concrete. With the surface being dry, it allows the
cornstarch to dig into the porous spots of the surface. Once the swimmers arrive
and the ground starts to saturate, the cornstarch will do its job absorbing some
of that excessive dampness that creates a puddle, that becomes the slip hazard.
The cornstarch will also start to clump, becoming a slight tread to the
surface. Excessive water, will wash the cornstarch away. (***Important Side Note: Some surfaces are super slick already, cornstarch can enhance some surfaces, as well, I recommend do a test spot on your surface, before you sprinkle the whole area down.)  Cornstarch
is also a bonus to keep little bugs away from the pool too. Cornstarch in the
dry form is silky and very dusty, which most little insects can not move or
breathe in.

This easy tip can help in, slowing down the kids and the bugs, so you can
enjoy the day by the pool.

There are several products on the market to help
with the slick surfaces around pools, do a bit of research before making a
purchase, to see which ones are good for your needs. Talk to your local pool
specialist to make sure which products will work best with your surface and
pool usage.

Remove Garlic Smell from Hands. Quickie:

By Tia Cristy

Quickie: Remove Garlic Smell from Hands.

When chopping garlic, most people don’t wear gloves, which allows the scent of garlic to absorb into your hands. The smell can be quite potent and last for hours, no matter how frequent you wash your hands even with a scented soap.

A quick tip, that actually can remove garlic smell from hands, is by rubbing them on something that is stainless steel. Using a faucet or a tea kettle are good options, the best option is using the refrigerator door handles if you have stainless appliances. (Side Note: Don’t use utensils, you don’t want to risk hurting yourself.)

A Sweet Treat Never Hurt Anybody. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: A Sweet Treat Never Hurt Anybody.

In most cases that is true, with generally healthy individuals, a little sweet treat doesn’t hurt with digestion. But if you have a yeast infection eating sweets can hurt more, than you think.

Yeast can effect women and men, internally and externally. And, yeast thrives on sugar. So, if you have a yeast infection, be sure not to give into that craving of sugar, that also includes fruits. Fruits have a high natural sugar content that can feed the yeast.

So, if you think you have a yeast infection, seek medical treatment and drink plenty of water, and save the desert for another time.

By Tia Cristy

Tips in Action: Hair Dryer Smells Burnt, Clean It Out Easy.

If the hair dryer is smelling like it’s burning every time you turn it on, it’s time to clean it out. Dust and lint get trapped in the back screen. Cleaning it out can prevent the dryer from catching fire or burning out the fan and motor.

Remove the back screen and use a clean dry cotton swab in between the blades. Flip the swab to the clean side, and dust the screen off as well.

Put the dryer back together and it should run as good as new.

It’s time for the pool to open, and I don’t want to look pale in my suit. Do you have any tips or tricks when it comes to self tanning?

Answer: Good question, and really, it’s a great alternative to tanning in the sun.

Sun is important for Vitamin D, but the rays can be harmful with too much indulgence. Sunless tanning can be natural with the right product, and only you, can determine which product and color is right for you. Trial and error may be what you have to do to find the right one; there are sprays, airbrushes, lotions and wipes to choose from.

Do a sunless tanner the day before you need a tan. It’s easy to correct any mistakes or darken your color if needed. Jumping in water after applying sunless tan, will just leave you a streaky mess and it’s not good for the pool water either. So plan accordingly.

First tip, use a separate face tanner, on the face, unless the tanning product says, full body. Body tanners can slightly dye hair, and darkening facial hair is not a goal for most.

The next tips would be, don’t shave legs before applying tanner, if possible. Exfoliating your legs and body before tanning is a good way to get a longer lasting tan. Shaving before hand can cause razor burn or darken pores. Shaving is best, after tan color has been achieved.

Remember, tanning can dye clothes, so be sure to wear dark colors while waiting for color to take. Wash hands well when finished, when using a lotion or wipe. Do forget to get around jewelry, if wearing it. Color can tend to build up behind rings.

If hands have turned color or you have any darker patches, use peroxided on a cotton ball (wring out, so no drips or runs happen) and wipe the area. It will fade the color to blend within a few hours.

Need Ice for a Party. Quickies:

Quickies: Need Ice for a Party.

A lot of parties are coming up this month and next, for graduations, holidays or just welcoming the barbecue season. The thing most party throwers overlook until party day, is ice. Buying bags of ice isn’t too expensive, but it’s an expense you don’t need, with a little forethought.

Whether you fill ice trays and empty them in the bag or you an ice maker; filling up old shopping bags with ice and storing them in the freezer for “party cooler” use, is a great money saver.

Ice for drinks, should be stored in clean or sanitized bags, until they can be placed in ice buckets for the party day.
