Quick Clean Up on Pine Needles. Quickie:

Quickie: Quick Clean Up on Pine Needles.

It doesn’t really matter if the tree is real or artificial; it still tends to shed needles. I know from my own experience, I still find them after the decorations have been long since, put away. Why get out the vacuum for just a couple pine needles?

So, let’s say you’re about to have guests over, and you spot a mess of needles under the tree. If you don’t have a little hand held vac, try this quick tip, grab the sticky lint roller. Roll it across the area where the needles have fallen. It will pick them right up, and you’ll be ready for visitors, in no time flat.

Having Fun in the Snow with a Cast

By Tia Cristy

Having Fun in the Snow with a Cast.

So, a dear friend of mine has a child with a broken arm. The first major snow day came across the US this weekend. The sad child just wanted to play in the snow. So, I made a suggestion.

First, put a hat on the hand. Then, put a trash bag on the arm up to the shoulder, and tape loosely to secure the bag. Finally, wrestle on their jacket. If it’s too tight to get on, then, spare one of your coats. This will allow the child to get a little play time in, with the snow, without hurting the durability of the cast.

If it’s a broken leg, use the same concept with the trash bag up the leg. The hat will get wet before the cast if the bag should break. Tell your child to let you know if the hat gets wet. If desired, double up the trash bag, so no little holes will let water get in.

This a a good tip for any age that has a cast, yet needs to deal with the snow day. Remember, don’t work or play too hard for too long, the cold may cause pain in the limb later that day.

Wick Out. Tips in Action:

By Tia Cristy

Tips in Action: Wick Out.

I mentioned before, a candle that still has wax, but the wick won’t light or goes right out, isn’t ready for the trash just yet. Put the almost gone candles on the stove. So, when the oven is on the scented wax residue in the jar will heat up on the stove and give a pleasant aroma to the room as if it were lit.

Help Reduce Static Shocks

By Tia Cristy

Help Reduce Static Shocks.

It’s that time of year again,with the heat on and every metal you touch, gives you a slight jolt. There are a couple tips to reduce the static shocks you receive.

Tip 1, put used dryer sheets into your shoes or pockets to help reduce the friction you are picking up while walking.

Second tip, put a safety pin attached to your pants or shirt, where the metal is touching skin. It will help reduce the shock treatment.

These aren’t fool proof, but they will help in the reduction of zaps from static build up.

Dry and Chapped around the Mouth. Tips in Action:

By Tia Cristy

(Recap) Tips in Action: Dry and Chapped Around the Mouth.

Around the winter time the cold brisk air can be very drying to skin, add the moisture from your mouth and the hot air coming from your breath can cause an unseen condensation around your mouth. This is a terrible combo for the suffers; dry and chapped around the lips and at the corners of the mouth. not only is it sad to see your skin flaking but, it can be quite painful too. Let’s say you’ve already tried a moisturizer and it didn’t work. You then tried olive oil and that helped heal a bit but you still need a little more moisture.

Here’s a tip in action for you. Get an avocado, cut it open and remove the green stuff. Mash it up and add a little bit of olive oil to the mix. Pat some warm water on the dry area, don’t dry. Apply the mixture on the area and let sit for 20 minutes. Put the unused mixture in the refrigerator for next time.

After the 20 minutes rinse off with water only. lightly pat dry with a soft cloth or tissue. If skin starts to feel tight again apply moisturizer or olive oil (doesn’t burn the skin) to skin and let soak in completely. You can repeat this process once a day several times a week till skin heals. The avocado penetrates through several layers of skin appose to other things that only go a couple layers deep.

If the skin burns or is cracked and broken, using an antibiotic cream can prevent infection. Call your doctor if skin becomes red, swollen or broken from being chapped, you may need medical assistance for healing skin.

Do you Need Iron Supplements? Home Test.

Do you Need Iron Supplements? Home Test.

What is the point of taking iron? Well, iron is one element we can not live without. There are about 12 forms of iron, to help keep your hemoglobin and blood happy. Not every source of iron is absorbed the same way, for everyone. If you have a low reading on your hemoglobin, you maybe diagnosed with iron deficient anemia. Which will result in taking an iron supplement or in drastic cases a blood transfusion.

If you are feeling tired, sluggish, confused, have muscle spasms, a bluish tint to the whites of your eyes or a number of other symptoms, you will want to contact your doctor to have your iron levels tested as soon as possible. Iron deficiency is very serious, if unaddressed.

A great home test, that not many people know about, to self check your iron, is getting a piece of yellow gold, (doesn’t work with white unless you’re extremely deficient). It may seem crazy, but it really works.

Take the gold ring, with the flat of the band, apply a good amount of pressure while you run it down the side of your face. If it leaves noting but just a red mark from where you rubbed it you may be alright, but if you are having symptoms, still call your doctor. But, if it leaves behind a black line, you probably are deficient and are in need of iron. If you can make a black line appear on the arm, you are probably more deficient than you’d expect. So, be sure to contact your doctor to get the level tested asap.

As I said, not all iron absorbs the same way, some people reject certain forms and accept others. If you have a problem with iron absorption, you may have to see a hematologist for iron transfusions. There are many forms and methods for iron, and your doctor can help you achieve the proper results.
