Tip of the Week - Light Bulb Tip

Posted in 'Tips' on December 10, 2009

Next time you need to change a light bulb, put a pillowcase over the lightbulb that you are removing so that if it shatters, it will end up inside the pillowcase and not all over the floor.

Tip of the Week - Chlorine Tip

Posted in 'Tips' on December 15, 2009

I don't usually do beauty tips because they aren't my area of expertise, but I felt this one was appropriate.

With most people spending a lot of time in the pool over the Summer months, we end up with dry and stringy hair from all of that chlorine. Mix a teaspoon of bicarb soda into your shampoo before you put it in you hair and you will be able to feel the chlorine coming out as you wash it.
