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; It’s best to 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.

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

By Tia Cristy

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

Get colorful

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.

Hold up

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)

Decorate with stickers

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.

Make your own magic

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.

Abrasive Exfoliates Work Best. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Just because you feel all those rocky granules through your fingers and on your skin, doesn’t mean that aggressive exfoliant product is working better than others. Some abrasive cleansers can leave little scratches behind, which is not good for your face since, it is subjected to so much pollution on a daily basis. That dirt can get into those tiny scratches and cause havoc on your skin.

A finer cleanser is nice, if it’s removing dead skin cells without being too harsh, but many don’t feel it’s doing the trick unless they can feel the grain.

Going with a natural exfoliant is a great way to go to get the right grain that is safe for all skin types. Salt or sugar mixed with an oil like coconut oil, is a great natural exfoliate.

Exfoliating once a week is usually a good rule. It gives the skin time to heal its wounds and generate the new layers. Massaging skin daily, is a good way to keep the face healthy.

Be sure to moisturize your skin. However, be cautious, using some moisturizers can burn after exfoliating, which can cause extra irritation.
 
Applying a mixture of olive oil mixed with tea tree oil after a weekly cleansing, can be healthy in unclogging pores while moisturizing and treating the skin with anti-bacterial properties. Always do a test patch on your wrist before applying to your face when using something new.

Making Sure Your Vehicle Is Road Safe

Making Sure Your Vehicle Is Road Safe

https://www.pexels.com/photo/photo-of-person-driving-a-vehicle-2705755/

There are different rules and regulations regarding vehicle inspection tests depending on the state you are located in. However, most people would agree that getting your vehicle inspected on a yearly basis makes sense to ensure you are safe on the road. 

What is a vehicle inspection and do you need one?

A vehicle test is a yearly requirement for all drivers, and it is illegal to have your vehicle on the road without one in some states. You are, however, allowed to drive the car to a pre-booked vehicle test so long as it is local. If you have been in a crash because of a car that is not road worthy, you should hire a car accident lawyer, as they will surely be able to build a strong case based on this.

A vehicle inspection is important to make certain your vehicle is safe enough to be on the road. Therefore, they check everything from the seat belts and suspension components to emissions and brakes, and, of course, your lights. One thing that is not included is the running of the engine. You will need to book this as an extra in most cases. 

How to find the best company for a vehicle inspection

You need to choose a test center with care, so you can be confident of the highest levels of quality. Make sure they have a formal quality control process in place. They should also have an impeccable reputation in the industry, and you should be able to read some of their previous customers’ comments on-site. If your vehicle fails its vehicle inspection, the professionals should do all of the necessary work needed for it to pass. Be sure they will provide you with a fixed quote upfront and an accurate timeline for how long the work will take as soon as the vehicle inspection is complete. 

How long should the inspection take? Should you wait around or drop off your car?

A vehicle inspection test can be a yearly inconvenience for most, which is why you need someone who can provide a quick, convenient, and flexible service. The vehicle inspection should only take around 45 minutes. 

Most people choose to drop their vehicle off and pick it up at a time of your convenience, getting their friend or family member to come with them so they have got a ride. If you would like to wait at the car garage and have a cup of coffee while they perform the vehicle inspection, you should be able to do this. Or maybe look for a company with a local collect and deliver service? 

Set yourself a reminder so you don’t forget to get your car inspected every year

If you have a tendency to forget that your vehicle is due a vehicle inspection, it is worth setting a reminder on your calendar. Some companies will send you a reminder a month or two months before the expiry date of your current vehicle inspection.
