Quickie: Prevent Coating Atop of Pudding.

Pudding can be a good, healthy desert or snack. It’s best to make it, instead of pre-made cups, but some folks aren’t a fan of the “skin” or coating that develops on top of the pudding.

Here’s a quick and simple way to prevent it from getting that coating. After you put the pudding in it’s cup or bowl to set, put a piece of wax paper on the top of the container. The wax paper will keep it from developing the film on top of the pudding.

(recap) Tips on Triggers:Stuffy Nose, Clear it up with this trigger point system.

Curl up your finger, use the flat part in between the knuckles and start at the top of the side of your nose where the eyebrow starts. Apply a fair amount of pressure and pause. Repeat pressure and pause along the whole side of your nose. (you may hear popping and crackling as you move downward)

Once at the nostril, slide finger with pressure across the cheek towards the ear. When you get to the ear, slide down the neck, still with slight pressure.

Use same process on the other side of the nose to clear that side. Repeat process when necessary.

Water on Frozen Windshield. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Water on Frozen Windshield. Stupid Tip of the Day:

So, the ice is pretty thick on the windshield and you are in a rush. You may have hear water gets it off quickly, but was that warm water? Hot water? No! Getting ice off the windshield takes cold water.

Cold water will take off the ice, where warm or hot water could break or crack your windshield.

A good way to get the ice off quickly is, put the cool water in a spray bottle and spray the windshield in sections, while using a scraper to get off the clumps of ice. Depending how cold it is, wetting the whole windshield at once could freeze up quickly. So de-icing in sections, may sound time consuming, but can actually be a whole lot faster.

Adding rubbing alcohol to the water, will speed up the process faster, but use caution, rubbing alcohol is flammable and mark the spray bottle with it’s ingredients, so you don’t use it on other things, where the alcohol could not be helpful or may even be harmful.

Cold Wind can Trigger an Ear Infection. Tips on Triggers.

By Tia Cristy

(recap) Tips on Triggers: A cold wind can trigger an ear infection no matter what age you are.

Pelting weather going sideways hitting hard in the face and head; this is a reason for the invention of ear muffs and headbands that cover the ears. The wind can zip right into the ear applying pressure; then add in a sleet, rain or snow with it and now moisture has gotten into the canal. This is the worst.

It can create a very painful situation. So if it is a windy, cold, wet day, and you don’t have access to the ear coverings, here’s a tip. Get 2 cotton balls, add petroleum jelly or olive oil onto the cotton and place in each ear. Don’t shove in ear canal, place gently to just cover the canal. (be sure to assist your child if using this technique on them and remind them not to push it into the ear while it’s in there) The jelly or oil will keep the cotton ball from getting wet from the weather and the cotton will cover the opening so wind won’t pressurize your ear drums.
