Soap bars used to claim a perpetual place by the sink, yet today soap is increasingly becoming rare. Pause for a moment and try recall the last time you found soap in a bathroom washroom instead of liquid soap? All things considered, to remove soap inside and out is a terrible thought. Regardless of whether you don’t use the stuff to wash your hands any longer, there are a few little tips that put the soap to great use. We have gathered 7 different ways that soap bars can be essential in each home – whether it’s managing bites from an insect or cleaning your foggy glasses. Examine the list below and don’t delay in passing the tips on to others.

Insect bite: Itchy and painful insect bites are not particularly fun. Fortunately, there are several household remedies to help get rid of them – and one of them is using a bar of soap. Just wet the soap, rub it on the bite, and the itchiness will soon cease.

Fragrance: No disrespect to flowers or scented candles, but here is another way to get rid of bad odors in old wardrobes, suitcases or dusty rooms. Lay a bar of soap in there. Just keep in mind that it’s best to have the soap wrapped, otherwise it can make a mess.

REM sleep disorder: Restless legs as a result of REM sleep disorders is a common problem that affects millions of people the world over. In order to avoid kicking your legs out whilst sleeping, as well as cramps and tingling sensations, try placing a bar of soap between your sheets.

In the garden: Fighting pests and the like in the garden can be achieved without chemicals. Breaking up small bits of strongly scented soap and placing them around the garden can alleviate your pest problems.

Clean glasses: Anyone who wears glasses can attest to how annoying it can be when they mist up. If you hate this as much as I do, try rubbing some dry soap against the inside of the glasses and then wiping with a dry cloth. The same trick can also be used to prevent bathroom mirrors from misting after a hot shower.

Loosening things: We’ve all experienced our zipper getting stuck. Or how about that window that suddenly refuses to open? A great lubricant to speed up the separation process is actually a bit of dry soap. Another top tip is to rub soap on the hinges of creaking doors when you want them to open nice and smoothly.

Soften shoes: Is there any better feeling than pulling on a new pair of shoes? Right up until the moment you get a blister, of course. Did you know that if your shoes need softening on the inside – to prevent the infamously uncomfortable rub – then soap can be the thing you need!

Mom refused to throw away eggshells– her garden is more beautiful than before after just one night.

In past times no sooner had I broken eggs that I used I would generally throw the shells straight in the bin. However, now I’ve realized that’s a pretty foolish thing to do. I’ve discovered that eggshells can, in fact, be very useful. By saving them you may be able to use for other purposes especially your garden. It’s no coincidence that eggshells are used by keen gardeners all over the world. We decided to give you nine reasons why you should use eggshells. The following tips will allow your garden to flourish in no time with these amazing tips. Thankfully none of the tips are too complicated. Take a look through the list below, and remember to share with others.

1. Nutrients for the soil: Eggshells are broken down quickly and can supply nutrients to the soil. The shells contain valuable calcium and other minerals. If you have enough eggshells, you can really enrich your soil.

2. Drainage: Digging holes and placing eggshells below your plants increases the drainage capacity and air circulation of the soil. This helps plants to stay healthy. Just remember to replace the eggshells as they degrade.

3. Tomatoes: Tomatoes, aubergines, and peppers can suffer from calcium deficiency when growing, which can cause them to rot. Bury eggshells in the soil to avoid this. The calcium they contain can be absorbed easily by the soil.

4. Keeping snails and worms at bay: Scatter broken eggshells around plants, flowers, and crops. Apparently, the shells are good for keeping snails and worms away. All without touching pesticides!

5. Keeping deer away: Not many of you have to worry about deer ruining your plants, but for those that do they detest the smell of eggshells.

6. Growing pods: Thinking about planting seeds, then eggshells can be perfect as biodegradable pots. Rinse the shell, place your shells in a carton on the window and fill the soil and seeds. The plants get extra calcium this way too. Place the shells on the ground when the shoots get too big. Remember to make a hole in the eggshell for the roots to spread out from.

7. Bird food: Little birds love crushed eggshells because they actually contain calcium. When birds flock to your garden, they offer additional benefits – pest control in particular!

8. pH balance: The pH balance of soil can affect the color of certain flowers. For example, take hydrangea which turns pink or blue depending on the acid/alkali balance in the soil. If your soil is too acidic, use eggshells to balance the pH.

9. Compost: Eggshells can be an amazing addition to compost. Remember to crush the shells first to ensure you get the best results!

13-Year-Old Builds His Own House For $1,500: Once The Door Opens He Reveals 89 sq ft Masterpiece

Luke Hill a 13-year-old eighth-grader from Dubuque, Iowa, built his own house in his parent’s backyard. He calls the 89-square-foot structure a “starter home.” He doesn’t consider it a playhouse, and neither did those who invited him to speak Saturday at a tiny home festival in Colfax, Iowa. He built it for $1,500 by cutting lawns, raising money online, gathering reclaimed materials and bartering for labor. An electrician neighbor helped him wire it — if Hill cleared out his garage.

A Scout leader he knew helped him lay carpet in the loft bedroom — once he agreed to cut the man’s lawn. He used leftover siding from his grandma’s house and a front door he got from his uncle’s friend. I think it’s safe to say that Luke is not like many of his 13-year-old peers. In a time of iPads, smartphones, gadgets and X Boxes, this young man decided to keep himself busy in a different and more ‘old-fashioned’ way. As he explains on his YouTube Channel “I was just on YouTube looking around and came across a tiny house idea and then that spiraled into looking at almost every YouTube video there is, it felt like,” Luke tells ABC News. “I got obsessed with them and decided to build my own.”

His desire to build a small house grew out of feeling bored during last summer. After some thorough researching, Luke had a pretty good idea of how he was going to put his plan into action. It took him about a year to get the money and materials he needed to build the house. Luke mowed lawns, started a fundraiser online and ran errands for anyone who needed help in the neighborhood to make money. Luke used about 75 percent recycled material, many of which were things left over from his grandma’s house. The front door of the house was a gift from an uncle’s friend. The 89-square-foot house is 10 feet long and 5 1/2 feet wide, with electricity but no plumbing, so no water or bathroom… yet. “I liked the minimalism,” he explains. “And I wanted to have a house without a huge mortgage.” Luke has created many video clips and announces them on-line, he discusses topics regarding his project as many have displayed interest in the small house.

As you can imagine, Luke also received some help from his parents, both financially and with the building itself. But dad Greg made sure that it would be Luke himself who would pay for most of his project and also build most of it himself. As you’ll imagine, Luke additionally received some assistance from his parents, financially and with erecting the building itself. However, his father Greg ensured that it would be Luke himself that would finance most of his project and build the majority of it himself. “It was a chance for a kid to do something more than play video games or sports,” Greg told The Des Moines Register.

“It teaches life lessons.” The home is in some ways a teenager’s dream, perhaps an oasis where on would chill and hang out in. it contains a microwave, TV and a loft with a bed. He even has a barbecue and flowers at the rear. Luke sometimes completes his homework there and a few nights throughout the week he gets to sleep there Luke already has dreams to make another house — one that’s perhaps a little larger for once he begins college.. He also hopes to inspire others to follow their dreams: “I want to show kids it’s possible to build at this age,” he says in one of his videos.

Husband tells wife his ‘word is the law’, but her hilarious response leaves him gobsmacked

Romance can make us blind to all the signs that we’re in a bad relationship. It is difficult to accept the fact that the loves of our lives can also possess awful, sometimes dangerous qualities. How can one person seem so fantastic, yet have such horrible tendencies and habits only moments later?

Whenever a couple moves in together with each other, it takes a while to adjust to the new arrangement. Many couples struggle to try to manage the different expenses involved along with who will take ownership of household chores. Dividing out the up tasks can be tricky especially when each has a different opinion about their particular role within the relationship. This can escalate if advice from others about their partners is compared with.

For example like the story, we are about to share which is rather hilarious. The husband reads what he considers to be an empowering book and is quick to announce some new house rules. However, he didn’t quite expect his wife to reach in this particular way. Although it’s not a real story, we simply had to share the humor here.

Read the hilarious story below: The husband had just finished reading a new book entitled, “You Can Be The Man Of Your House.” He stormed to his wife in the kitchen and announced, “From now on, you need to know that I am the man of this house and my word is law. You will prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and when I’m finished eating my meal, you will serve me a sumptuous dessert. After dinner, you are going to go upstairs with me and we will have the kind of fun that I want. Afterward, you are going to draw me a bath so I can relax. You will wash my back, towel me dry, and bring me my robe. Then, you will massage my feet and hands. Then tomorrow, guess who’s going to dress me and comb my hair?” The wife replied, “The damn funeral director would be my first guess.”

10 Common Bug Bites Everyone Should Be Aware Of

Practically everyone is stung or bitten by an insect at some point in their life where most of us experience it during the summer months. It’s more common during warmer periods, but it can often be difficult to identify exactly what’s bitten you. Some bites can actually become quite serious, causing infection, swelling, skin damage or severe itching, many are harmless, whilst others have the potential to transfer diseases. It’s important to have an idea as to what exactly has bitten/stung you, and what remedy you require for the symptoms. No need to panic because we collated a small guide to help understand what insects are bothering you.

Hornets: Being stung by a hornet is no one’s idea of fun. After a sting, the affected area is often red and very swollen. Blistering of the skin can occur, whilst cooling the area can offer relief. In some cases, the sting of the hornet can cause an allergic reaction triggered by your own immune system. If your stomach begins to feel cold or numb, your lips turn a shade of blue and breathing is labored, contact a doctor immediately

Bees: If you’ve been stung by a honey bee, the skin around the sting site can become red and swollen, it might itch after some time. The first day after the sting, swelling can increase and pain may radiate in waves from the area. Bee stings are usually harmless in the long term, and providing you don’t feel bad about yourself you can wait until the symptoms subside. It’s important that you remove the sting, to prevent more poison working its way into your body. For the best results, scrape away the sting with a small gadget such as a knife or your own nails.

Wasps: Perhaps the most notorious of all summer blights, the wasp delivers a sting similar to a bite from other insects. The area can turn red and swell, whilst the victim will experience pain and potentially a terrible itch. Bleeding may occur, unlike a bee, wasps can sting several times, so it’s even more important that you know whether or not you’re allergic.

Mosquito: Most people are familiar with mosquito bites, but all the same, it can be difficult to know what’s what. Mosquito bites look like swollen red spots, roughly the size of a small berry, they like to suck blood where the skin is thin as it’s easier for them to reach blood vessels. When they feed, they inject their saliva into the wound, causing numbness in the area that makes it difficult to detect them in the act.

Ticks: Those who are bitten by a tick often don’t know it’s even happened. If you are bitten, however, you can expect a small red patch to occur where the tick has been sitting. Normally the site shouldn’t be more than a few centimeters in diameter, whilst it’s not uncommon to find a small red lump in the center where the tick was feeding.

Fleas: Flea bites are difficult to self-diagnose, as they’re often mistaken for allergic reactions and mosquito bites. Unlike mosquito bites, these bites can be painful and extremely itchy. Fleas commonly bite the legs of sleeping people, whilst the insects can bite several times in one ‘sitting’, so there’s often a pattern separated by gaps of around 1 to 2cm.

Ants: Most ants pose no real threat to humans, red ants are a common pest around the world and are notorious for their painful bites. The ants’ poison contains toxins that can cause allergic reactions and – in extreme cases – anaphylactic shock. Symptoms are often mild and in many ways similar to a bite from a mosquito. An ant bite will often appear as a pink spot, with the skin around it tender and itchy. A person may experience a sudden pain at the moment of the bite.

Horse-fly: If you’ve ever been bitten by a horse-fly, you’ll know you don’t want it to happen again. In rare cases, horse-fly bites can cause blood poisoning and infections. They may look like big, fat flies, but the blood-sucking horse-fly can deliver a hard and painful bite, often leaving a mark and inducing swelling. Wash the area with cold water and apply ice.

Lice: If you notice small red dots that look like mosquito bites, in places where hair grows, on your head, neck or behind your ears – you may have lice. Severe itching is the most common symptom of head lice and comes as a result of their biting. To be sure you have lice, run lice comb through your hair and see what comes out in the sink. Lice are most commonly between one and three millimeters long, with translucent bodies.

Bedbugs: Bed bugs are something you never want to experience. Bites from bed bugs resemble those from mosquitos, though they often follow zigzagging patterns. Common symptoms include swelling, redness, pain and sometimes puss. Unfortunately, you can’t get rid of bed bugs by yourself, even if the bites go away. Contact a professional extermination company to help with your bed bug problem.

Oh no we don’t,” said Tirado.

Tirado was let go on September 14, however, there’s no reason specified in the letter she got from the principal as she was still in her trial period. On her final day at the school, she composed a message on her whiteboard to her students that read: “Mrs. Tirado loves you and wishes you the best in life! I have been fired for refusing to give you a 50% for not handing anything in.” An image was uploaded to Facebook, where it’s been getting plenty of attention as individuals comment on how they feel about unfair dismissal.
