Tips on Triggers: Nice Days Triggering the Desire to do Yard Work.

I felt it myself. The winter is coming to an end, and the urge to get outside and clean up the beaten yard when the sun is shining, it is running through your veins. Well it’s not time to do all that stuff, that most enjoy like, grass seed and flowers; The last frost hasn’t happened yet. But you need to shake off your cabin fever, so what is it time to do, in the the yard? Now is the time, to cut back those trees and bushes that aren’t populated with leaves and bugs. While doing that, you’ll get some much needed vitamin D. Remember, have the right tools for the job. Safety is always important; have help if you need it, be sure to wear long sleeves, pants and boots and have eye and hand protection. Grab a good pole saw to make the job go a lot smoother.

Freezing the Odor Out of Your Shoes. Stupid Tip of the Day:

Stupid Tip of the Day: Freezing the Odor Out of Your Shoes.

I heard freezing your shoes will remove odor. Fact is, freezing the shoes can sometimes only freeze the bacteria and fungi that is making the shoes smell in the first place, so once it is frozen, some top layer, bad stuff, may die off, and the smell will go away. But, once your feet warm up the shoes, the bacteria and fungi that didn’t die off, will thaw, have an extra moisture source and begin to grow again. And, may make the situation worse.

So, freezing is not the way to go, kill odor with vinegar. Wiping shoes down with a vinegar soaked cotton ball and letting it dry will kill the bad stuff and reduce the smell. Keep this in mind, bacteria and fungus can penetrate deep so I recommend rubbing shoes down with vinegar once a week, even if there is no odor.

Getting Melted Candle Wax Out of Glass.

Getting Melted Candle Wax Out of Glass.

 

Lighting votive candles can bring a beautiful ambiance to a room, but once they burn down it’s hard to get the left over wax out of the glass holder.

A quick tip to get that wax to pop out effortlessly is, once the candle and glass cool completely, place in the freezer overnight.

The next day, remove from the freezer. Use a spoon handle and push wax from one side and the remaining wax should come out in a complete mass. If it still gives some trouble break the seal of the wax to candle and try again.
