Top 10 Spring Cleaning Tips

  1. Buy a New Vacuum – Sometimes you need to splurge and spend big money to get your house as clean as possible. A vacuum picks up all the garbage and debris on the ground so it’s best to get everything and anything. You can find our top picks here.
  2. Windows – Cleaning the inside of your windows is a great idea. Now go outside and clean those as well. Quick tip from the specialist; clean the windows on a cloudy day so the sun doesn’t dry your cleaner before you can wipe it dry.
  3. Steel and Chrome – Polish your steel and chrome appliances with aerosol spray designed for steel. Be careful not to use too much as it can leave the surfaces worse and more grimy than before.
  4. The Fridge – Clean the inside and outside of your fridge. Take all your products off the shelves and wash them in soapy water. You may consider doing quarterly instead of annually. We all have kids who spill things like pickle juice or milk in the fridge.
  5. Hardwood Floors – Don’t clean them, no seriously. You may think you are cleaning them when you mop them but you are actually ruining them. You should only consider wet cleaning your hardwood every 2 months to avoid water damage.
  6. Oven – If you ever start to smell something burning inside your oven just from turning it on then you should clean the inside of the oven. A DIY solution is baking soda and vinegar, add a few drops to the bottom and then wipe it away with ease.
  7. Your closet – Consider going through your closet and looking at things you use and don’t use. Check your local area for places that accept clothing donations or opt to sell them online or thrift stores.
  8. Mattress – Grab your new vacuum and the attached hose (most now have these) and use the vacuum on your mattress. Grab some air freshener spray and apply some to your mattress.
  9. Granite Countertops – Consider having these sealed as soon as they are put in. It’s also never too late to have them sealed so don’t worry if you didn’t have it done when they were first installed.
  10. Kitchen Cabinets – You will be surprised how dirty these can actually become. Especially if you have cabinets near your oven hood where grease can attach to. Create a solution of water and soap or even special cabinet creme and wipe them clean.

Yet we tend to forget that a couple of thousand years ago, our beds, water, food and shelter all came from the wild. We still have the knowledge, but our brains have chosen to ignore it hence becoming difficult for us to use it when we need it,

The most important aspect of wilderness surviving is to be prepared. Having the right survival gear is important. This entails the skills and tricks you can learn and should remember as they will help you when you get lost in the wild or if your car breaks down in the woods.

Know Your Priorities In case of a disaster the following are certain priorities that can help save your life;

1. Immediate Security.
Our psychology tells us that if we face any danger, run away from it If you encounter any danger, you should move to cover.

2. First Aid
You should check yourself for any injuries and medical problems that may arise and attempt to treat them. In most cases, small cuts should be ignored, but if the cut is deep and you cannot stop the bleeding, then a tourniquet will come in handy. Tourniquet can be anything like a stripped shirt or a belt. In the case of a dislocated bone, you should get it back in place. If it is a shoulder, you should roll on the ground to relocate the bone to its original position. If it is a fractured bone, stabilize it by tying it together with a stick (use shoelaces) to hold the brace. If it’s a burn, coat it with honey or find any lukewarm water to cover it with Blisters should not be left open and wounds should be elevated.

3. Self-Defense

If you are under attack from anything, then you should arm yourself. These can be anything like a stone, knife, machete and even a sharpened stick. These should keep the cannibals away from you In case of any animal, block its mouth with your arm and hit it in the snout or eyes with the other dominant arm.

4. Basic Wilderness Needs

These are food, shelter, water, fire and hygiene. To build a shelter, you only need to meet two important requirements. It should insulate warmth and block elements. You can start a fire using a bottle of water, a pair of glasses or a condom. The principle is just to focus the sun rays through the glasses or water on a single point to generate heat. It may take a while but eventually you will be able to blow the fire. You can also start a fire by rubbing two sticks together to create friction which will produce heat and eventually catch fire. In case there is no sunshine, and there is a decent chance you have a lithium battery, you can use a knife to connect between the positive terminals and negative terminals to create a spark.

5. Getting Rescued

In case of a helicopter rescuing, you need to form your arms in a “Y” and do not wave as waving is not considered a sign of land. In case you have a flare, use it to signal the helicopter or plane.

Newbie Stephen Curry is half of a standout amongst the most element backcourts in the NBA, with Monta Ellis, for the Golden State Warriors at an age of 21 years. With the group winning less than 30 percent of its recreations, the ascent of Curry and correlations with his dad, previous NBA star Dell Curry, are about all Warrior fans need to cheer about.

Both of Stephen’s folks were star competitors at Virginia Tech, Dell in b-ball and his mom Sonya in volleyball. In spite of his parentage, Stephen Curry was censured by the Virginia Tech Hokier. Virginia Tech was willing to concede Stephen to class, yet would just permit him to tryout for the b-ball group without a grant as a stroll on.

Rather, Stephen Curry relinquished his fantasy of playing in the ACC and acknowledged a grant to mid-significant school Davidson of the Southern Conference where he turned into a three-year starter and was twice named Southern Conference Player of the Year,

Stephen Curry has done a considerable measure to make his father glad this season. As of Feb. 22, he had begun 52 diversions for the Warriors, averaging 15 focuses, five helps and four bounce back per amusement.

For Stephen Curry, that was just the same old thing new. the more youthful Curry said. “I think the things I do on the court sort of originate from him, so he’s in my mind amid the diversion and I get a kick out of the chance to keep him included.”

It’s anything but difficult to see that Stephen Curry is taking in the methods for the NBA fine and dandy in his first expert season. When he calls his father, they typically discuss different things than b-ball. “I was a b-ball kid. I’ve been doing this all my life,” the Warriors’ Curry said “Despite the fact that he played 16 years in the NBA, it’s stuff I can make sense of all alone.”

Stephen Curry’s number 30 with the Warriors is the same number Dell Curry wore the majority of his profession. The senior Curry, who completed his NBA vocation in 2002, is recorded as two inches taller and 20 pounds heavier than his 6-3, 185 pound child.

Keeping in mind it is difficult to anticipate a 16-year profession for Stephen now, he has as of now turn into a general starter and is scoring at a more prominent clasp than his father who arrived at the midpoint of only under 12 focuses per amusement for his vocation. In the event that the present pattern transforms into a profession line for the more youthful Curry, soon Dell is considered generally Stephen Curry’s dad
