Creating a clean house is essential for the health and well-being of the whole family. A messy environment will do nothing but increase your stress level. You should always declutter your space and keep your inner neat freak alive. Organizing your house does not have to be overwhelming. Take it from me; you can whip your house into shape by following the tips below.
Do you take your shoes off when you get home? We travel to lots of places during the day. Every step we take picks up thousands of germs, which we end up traipsing with us everywhere we go. Taking your shoes off (and making sure guests do the same) can go a long way to sanitizing your house and have a positive effect on making sure your family members don’t get sick. I have used Home Complete’s Shoe Rack for years, and I happily recommend it to you, dear reader. Not only does it keep my footwear organized, but it is also quite stylish. It took me all of 60 seconds to assemble it — all by myself no less, without the help of any excess tools. All you need to do is to fasten the rails to the large white resin stands. It is great not only for entryways and closets but also for heavily trafficked areas like kitchens, garages and sheds. Given its shape, you can actually use it to store small kitchen appliances, food containers, toolboxes, paint and more. If you do use it for shoes, the 8-tier space saver can hold up to 48 pairs of shoes.
Some people may have no problem living in a messy bedroom for months on end, feeling their lives are not impaired in any fundamental way. Even so, the kitchen is a whole different animal. There is no way any functional human being can survive (let alone thrive) without a clean kitchen. We cook there; we eat there; we hopefully do our dishes there. A messy kitchen can have a direct impact on our health. Having established the importance of keeping a clean kitchen, we now must figure out how to store our kitchen utensils — our forks and spoons that touch so much food that ultimately ends up in our bellies. Most American families have an abundance of such flatware, and it can be hard to find a container that can store them all. Artisware’s Bamboo Expandable Drawer Organizer is a great organizer to store cutlery and utensils. It features 7 to 9 compartments. Two of them are adjustable and expandable, maximizing our drawer space. This premium cutlery and utensil tray resists water and can be cleaned easily. The entire organizer is made of bamboo. You can wipe down all the dirt with a damp cloth.
As you may have noticed in your own abode, kitchens, bathrooms, closets, and living rooms are magnets for clutter. A set of storage bins can help us control the entropy. SINARDO’s Wire Storage Basket Organizer can organize anything making a mess in your house, including fruits, snacks, cans of food, cleaning products, makeup and more. Children can use these bin baskets to keep books and toys organized. With the built-in handles, we can transport the baskets from shelf to table and counter easily. The package comes with 2 large and 2 medium wire baskets. The large ones are perfect for storing apples and potatoes, and the medium ones are ideal for keeping snacks and wallets. The shiny rose gold color and the versatile design work well with all decor.
Ways To Dry Or Humidify Your House
Humidity levels in your house are related to the comfort you experience. Keeping the humidity levels between 30 and 50% can reduce maintenance and help you stay healthy. High humidity can result in wet stains on walls and ceilings, moldy closets and bathrooms, and musty odor. People with allergies and asthma are in danger when dust mites thrive in an environment with too much humidity. Low humidity can result in dry skin, scratchy throats and noses, hardwood floor separation and warping, and loosening drawers. Body moisture evaporates quickly when the house is too dry. Here are some ways to remedy humidity problems.
Living in the damp house isn’t just uncomfortable, but mold and tiny pests can also cause illness and structural damage. Dampness develops in the absence of proper ventilation. You should do something if you feel excessively damp. There are a lot of factors that cause dampness in your house. For instance, maybe you have too many plants around or are fond of boiling or cooking with the lids off the pans. Reducing the number of plants or cooking with pans covered is never enough to lower the humidity level in the house. DampRid Hanging Bag works as a dehumidifier but no electricity is needed. DampRid’s crystals absorb the excess moisture that causes damp-feeling fabrics and musty odor in the air and leave a light, pleasurable scent in the house. You can hang it in your storage areas, bathrooms, laundry rooms, cabin, car or wherever moisture is a problem. Each DampRid hanging moisture absorber packets includes three packs. I replace them every two months. After using them for a month, I hardly ever find any pesky bugs in my apartment.
Don’t like the idea of hanging the DampRid Bag on the wall or around in the house? DampRid FG60FS Moisture Absorber is another option. Similar to DampRid Bag, DampRid FG60FS Moisture Absorber can also stale musty odors by trapping excess moisture. It is designed to reduce the growth of mold and mildew. The only difference is it is refillable, which is highly economical. It is ideal to use in small and enclosed spaces such as basements, closets, and bedrooms.
Leaking humidity in the house can result in serious health consequences especially in the winter time. Your eyes can get very dried and irritated, while skin can get flaky and itchy when they are exposed in an environment with low humidity. You may catch a cold or get the flu because the mucous membrane lining your respiratory tract has been inflamed and dried out. For one, you might want to buy more houseplants. But as a second step, you should get a humidifier. Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier is your best long-term solution because the water supply is constant. Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic Humidifier can maintain humidity levels above 43% so that your skin will not feel too dry or irritated. It features a 6L tank with a powerful mist output. You don’t have to refill it frequently. When the air humidifier is running out of water, it shuts off automatically so that the machine will not be damaged. I believe a lot of readers love essential oils. This humidifier has a built-in essential oil tray, where you can enjoy the aroma from your favorite essential oils. Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic Humidifier is affordable to everyone because it does not require costly filters. It features a unique filter-less design, which is very economical and sustainable.
What Is The Right Straightener For Your Hair Type?
A high-quality hair straightener will protect your hair from breakage, heat damage and uneven texture and will ideally last for years on end. Some people use a flat iron as a tool for straight and shiny locks. However, it can be used for more than that. A flat iron also serves as a functional and versatile styler that helps you to curl your hair or even be used as a volumizer in a pinch. If you have questions on how to choose the best straightener, here’s what to keep in mind. Shape, plate width, temperature and value are all things you should take into account.
The HSI Professional Ceramic Flat Iron is not only a salon-quality styling tool but also a hair care product. The plates are designed with ceramic and tourmaline crystal ion. The ceramic hair straightener is great for creating a shinier and silkier finish, smoothing out hair and reducing frizz. The tourmaline-infused ceramic plates allow small water molecules to penetrate into your hair shaft to reduce static. The ceramic plates are ideal for fine or thin hair because they distribute heat evenly, hold heat for a longer time and control heat better. The plate width plays an important role in the ultimate effect. HSI Professional’s plate width is one inch, which works for any hair length–even for bangs. People with fine hair should never choose a plate that is too wide, as it would apply too much heat and damage the hair shaft. Without purchasing additional tools, you will be able to flip, curl or straighten your hair with one single iron. HSI Professional Ceramic Flat Iron creates durability and lasting results.
It is unacceptable if a hair straightener’s temperature cannot be adjusted. After all, different hair types need different temperatures. Even though high heat can straighten our hair faster and more effectively, not every hair type is suitable for the hottest iron. The HSI Professional Ceramic Flat Iron‘s temperature is adjustable. The temperature can be heated up from 140°F up to 450°F in seconds. You can adjust it to the optimum temperature that gets you the results you want. For fine hair, the lower the temperature, the less your hair can be damaged. The HSI Professional Ceramic Flat Iron is completely safe to use because it never results in an uneven texture or burns sections of your hair. More importantly, it never smokes like other flat irons. The built-in intelligent sensors ensure that the iron is hot enough to straighten or curl your hair with minimum effort while keeping your hair away from overheating.
The HSI Professional Hair Straightener is a travel-friendly product. Except for the ceramic flat iron, the package also comes with a heat-resistant glove to protect your hand from getting burned by the hot iron, a travel-size, argan oil hair treatment to help smooth and protect tresses, and an attractive silk case to keep all the accessories in one place when traveling. Another attractive travel feature is its 110/220 worldwide dual voltage. In other words, you can use it in Australia even if you buy it in the States! The 360° swivel cord is designed with an extra-long length that adds more flexibility when styling your hair. The extra-long length can prevent the cord from getting tangled or damaged.
Time To Stock Up For College
Back-to-school shopping season is officially here. With fall right around the corner, colleges are reopening the campuses soon. Especially for incoming college freshmen, moving into dormitories comes with a whole host of lifestyle changes. Given the size of an average college dorm room, there is not much space to store anything but the essentials. The following list can relieve some of the stress in advance of move-in day.
No matter how small your dorm room turns out to be, it is guaranteed to have a desk for each student. However, that desk might not be as big as the ones that you have at home. As such, organization is paramount. SimpleHouseware Mesh Desk Organizer can save more space than you ever imagined. This desk organizer has several compartments, including a double tray and 5 upright sections. One of the trays is a sliding drawer with 3 compartments. You may store small items such as a calculator, pens and sticky notes. The only part that needs to be assembled is the plastic tabs when you receive the package. They can secure all parts together. The rubber bottoms can avoid slippage.
Unlike high school, college can make you exhausted. If you don’t want to pull unintentional all-nighters, you should make sure to choose the right bedding. A Twin XL mattress is standard for the majority of residence halls. But you should double-check the size of your dorm room bed before investing in bedding. If you do find yourself stuck with the extra-long twin, then the Intelligent Design Raina Comforter Set is fabricated with ultra-soft brushed microfiber. The geometric silver printing matches all room styles. The package comes with a comforter, a sham, and 2 decorative pillows. Since students will be busy with school work, you may not have much time to wash everything by hand. This comforter set can be machine watched, which makes it easy to care for. Just make sure never to bleach it.
Even though computers and other electronic devices have evolved into mandatory tools for college students, a lot of professors still require students to take notes in physical notebooks. We all know that technology can be distracting. Taking notes by hand can improve students’ active listening, comprehension of class material and retention. High-quality notebooks are indispensable for good students. I have been using Five Star Spiral Notebooks since the first day of school and have always been impressed with their quality. Five Star is selling a 6-pack notebook with assorted colors and offering an $8 discount. You can prepare one notebook for each of your class. Every notebook contains 100 college ruled sheets and one divider with 2 pockets that allows you to store handouts. The plastic front cover is water-resistant. All of the notebooks that I used 10 years ago are still in good condition.
Of course, having a good notebook isn’t enough to guarantee an A. To prepare for class, you also need ballpoint pens, highlighters, pencils, erasers and more. You want something that is water-resistant, permanent, fade-resistant, and smooth. Prismacolor’s Writing Essentials Kit save you time on shopping around for pens. All pieces are from Sharpie, Paper Mate, and Expo. Everything you need is included in this kit: 2 permanent markers, 1 dry erase marker, 3 highlighters, 6 ballpoint pens, 1 gel pen, 2 felt pens, 3 mechanical pencils and 2 erasers. Prismacolor’s Writing Essentials Kit always prepares you to write down any ideas or note. Taking notes with good instruments can keep you away from disorganized, wordy, overwhelming, and insufficient notes.
