Get Rid of Ants

5 Dec

This time we will be showcasing 2 options:

  1. Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it ‘home,’ can’t digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don’t have the worry about pets or small children being harmed!
  2. Another option would be to sprinkle baby powder into the area to keep them away – for free. Ants, according to experts, aren’t keen on the texture or scent of baby powder so will stay away from it. It’s a great alternative to using harmful (and expensive!) ant repellents around children.

Natural underarm deo

16 May

Prepare a diluted mix of white vinegar and water into a flushing bottle and spray it on your underarm for an odor-free day:) Diluted vinegar should be applied only to unbroken skin (not after shaving), or it will sting. If it causes any rash or other reaction, it should be discontinued immediately.

This natural solution works the following way: vinegar doesn’t allow bacteria to grow, which are the ones that cause bad odor.

Relieve a bug bite with nail polish (or toothpaste)

26 Jul

Minutes after escaping certain death in the Pacific woodlands, MacGyver finds himself completely covered in itchy, concentration-breaking mosquito and chigger bites. This is bad, because it will take every ounce of effort and attention to rig together a makeshift rope bridge to get across the chasm four miles ahead. Digging deep into his seemingly infinite pockets, MacGyver has to decide—will the clear nail polish he uses to paint over rusted dents seal off the itches? Should he instead reach for the aspirin, vinegar, or toothpaste? All of them are slightly more non-obvious than reaching for the off-label use of Bengay for bug bites, but any of them need to be applied real quick, before Murdoc’s henchmen break through his makeshift lock jam and catch him scratching away.
