Tips on Triggers: Trigger Spring with Clean.



You've heard the term "Spring Cleaning", well that is because it's a great way to trigger the feeling of Spring. Deep cleaning your place is good to do twice a year, but most importantly around Spring time, to remove the dust and dirt that has piled up over the winter.

Open the blinds, wash the curtains and let that sun shine in even if it's still a bit chilly out there. Wiping your place from top to bottom will make that stagnate air, fresh.

Don't forget to clean the ceiling fans, you'll be using them soon enough when the heat finally kicks in. It is so unsettling, when you turn on the fan and dust bunnies fly across the room. The easiest way to clean your ceiling fan is to take the dirty sock pile, put your hand in a sock, apply the dust cleaner and use your hand to wipe the blade. Pull off your hand inside out if the dust is really thick and get another sock for the other blades. When done, shake the socks out over the trash can while turning them right side in, and throw them in the wash. And wash your hands, of course.

Using steam to clean fabrics that are unable to go into the washer is a great wash to disinfect and deep clean.

Adding Spring colors as accent colors to a room will give a Spring time feel and lighting floral scented candles or getting air fresheners will give you the sense that Spring is in full bloom.

Stainless Steel Always Looks Clean. Stupid Tip of the Day:

Stupid Tip of the Day: Stainless Steel Always Looks Clean.




For anyone thinking about buying stainless steel appliances, the truth is, they can look messy just like any other. Stainless has the ability to show finger prints as well. 

Some new technologies offer smudge proof, which maybe worth the extra dollars. But, remember this tip for any of your stainless steel.

Mix together water and baking soda to make a paste to clean the steel, wipe away with damp cloth and then rub down with olive oil, to leave it streak-free. Be sure to buff out with a dry towel to get it to a nice shine and keep the surface from getting sticky.

Maintain Good Health with a Teaspoon of Sour.

Maintain Good Health with a Teaspoon of Sour.



When a 90 year old woman was asked what she did to maintain good health for all her years, she knew the answer. She stated that everyday she took a teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice when she got up in the morning.

This woman claimed lemon juice was the secret to her long life. And, that could be the real reason. Lemons are high in Vitamin C and surprisingly have a bit of iron and calcium. Lemons are also antibacterial as well as antiviral. They have the power to boost the immune system.

Though this tip may not be for everyone; drinking a teaspoon of lemon juice, next time you have your water handy, try adding in lemon juice. It just may be a great health benefit to you as well.

Hands the Same Color as the Easter Eggs? Remove Dye from Hands.

Hands the Same Color as the Easter Eggs? Remove Dye from Hands.



Problem: Tia, how do you get dye off the kids hands after dying Easter eggs?

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; 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.

Being Negative, Can Trigger Negativity, Tips on Triggers:

By Tia Cristy


Being Negative, Can Trigger Negativity, Tips on Triggers:



Have you ever made a negative comment and noticed it effected the people around you to become negative too? It's contagious. Though you may not have meant to change the mood, it can instantly happen. The conversations can quickly snowball into negativity. Doing this too frequently can cause a long term negative outlook on your life, which can result in depression and other mental aliments.

So if you find your self having a negative thought or saying a negative comment, try to follow it up quickly with a positive response or thought. For example, "This weather sucks!" follow it up with something like, "I was so glad I didn't need to stop for gas today to get to work, that was great!" or "Look at the way that person is dressed!" follow it up with something kind like "but, I really like those shoes. I'll have to go shoe shopping soon." Doing this will help you be less negative, yourself and to help the mood of those around you.

Even though negativity is contagious, remember so is happiness. Force yourself to have a positive outlook and soon, it won't have to be forced.

Beautiful Days Mean Allergy Nights?

By Tia Cristy


Beautiful Days Mean Allergy Nights?



So, depending upon where you live, there may be some nice weather days in the forecast. But, does nice weather equal bad allergies for you?

I know some people don't agree, but if you suffer from sever allergies to molds and pollens, it's best to keep those windows closed during the day. Even if everyone else is bragging about their cross-breeze, you are going to be able to breathe better knowing your windows stayed shut.

(SIDE NOTE: breezy days cause the most trouble with mold and pollen spores)

Keep the room feeling fresh with fans and spore killing aromas like Eucalyptus oil, or turn on the air conditioner if needed. Make sure the units you use, are clean for the upcoming season before turning them on, causing the scattering of old dust.
