LAUGH FOR THE DAY - THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DOGS AND CATS

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - THE NEWS MEDIA

DO YOU KNOW HOW TO USE CLOROX WIPES CORRECTLY?

You’ve Probably Been Using Clorox Wipes All Wrong
Article from tiphero.com

Let’s talk about cleaning products, shall we? Namely, the Clorox wipe. You know what we’re talking about: the disinfectant cloths that come in that fun tube? They’re one of the best ways to clean the house in the nick of time (i.e., when your clean-freak mother-in-law unexpectedly tells you that she’s on her way over). 

No rubber gloves, no clunky cleaning equipment, Clorox wipes are simply the best. From your kitchen counters to your coffee table and bedroom dresser, Clorox wipes are always there to get rid of germs, crumbs, dirt, you name it. I mean, one of the reasons we love Clorox wipes so much is that they can be used on anything—right?

Unfortunately for our porous surfaces, no. You actually shouldn’t use Clorox wipes on any surface that’s protected by a sealant because it could damage that sealant. For example, the ever popular granite countertops are one of the most common surfaces that fall into this category.

The ingredient that can cause the damage is the citric acid in the Clorox wipe, which is known to not counteract so well on this kind of surface. For granite, experts recommend just using the tried and true soap and water for those.

All right, so that’s not that exciting—and it kind of stinks if you’ve been using Clorox wipes on your granite (guilty). But here’s what really blew our minds: There’s actually a right and wrong way to use Clorox wipes—and it actually says it right there on the directions (but who really reads and follows those anyway?). 

What’s the proper way to use a Clorox wipe? 

“The main issue with wipes that disinfect is they have to be used precisely as the label instructs,” Dr. Ivan Ong, a microbiologist and VP of research and development at Microban, told Apartment Therapy. “The use instructions for Clorox’s disinfecting wipes stipulates that you should ‘Wipe surface, using enough wipes for the treated surface to remain visibly wet for four minutes. Let surface dry.’ Many users in a household rarely time themselves for four minutes while ensuring the surface is wet.”

Um, you’ve got that right. Like we said, we use Clorox wipes when we’re in a pinch—we want to get the house clean, and fast. Who has time to wait approximately four whole minutes, let alone stare at the surface to ensure it’s still wet?

Don’t worry—we in a hurry who do this aren’t alone. Dr. Ong says that most people don’t actually wait four minutes, and that they just continue to wipe the surface until it’s dry. That’s what we deem as clean, after all.

Cleaning this way isn’t the worst thing in the world, but technically, it’s not quite cleaning the surface as much as we think if we aren’t following those directions to a T. “What this might do is spread germs around the surface,” says Dr. Ong. Ugh, dang it. 

Do you ever use Clorox wipes exactly the way they’re supposed to be used? Are you going to start now, or find yourself a less time-consuming product? Hmm, we’re still not sure what to think about this one!

5 WAYS TO UNCLOG A DRAIN WITHOUT USING HARMFUL CHEMICALS

Article and picture from tiphero.com

Everyone’s drains get clogged. It’s just the nature of life—whether it’s too much gunk in the bathroom sink, a string of hair in the shower drain, or food particles in the kitchen sink. You know the drill: the water starts rising and mixes with all the grossness and you just want to gag. It’s no fun for anyone.

The natural thing to do when a drain gets clogged is to try to unclog it (unless you’re semi-evil and just ignore it for the next person to deal with). But what’s the proper way to do that? You don’t want to throw a whole bunch of chemicals in an area you wash dishes, eat food, or wash your body.

Are there any non-toxic solutions to the problem?

Sure are! Luckily, there are lots of ways to unclog a drain, without using any harmful chemicals. Here are five ways to unclog every type of drain, most that require just a few simple ingredients—many of which you probably already have in your home. 

For the kitchen sink: Baking soda, vinegar, and water 
For small kitchen sink clogs, try the baking soda/vinegar trick, which has been unclogging drains for centuries. Just mix together half a cup of baking soda and half a cup of vinegar. Pour that into the clogged drain, then pour in up to four cups of boiling water immediately after. The mixture will break down fat and grease that’s causing the clog, and then the water will flush out the leftover food particles.

For the shower drain: Salt and water 
Shower drains usually get clogged with hair, gunk, dirt, and grease, which can be taken care of with just a half cup of salt, followed by boiling water. The gritty texture of the salt acts like a rough tool to scrape down any of the nasty stuff caught in the sink drain. 

For a blocked pipe: Dishwashing detergent 
Tough, but gentle, dishwashing detergent works well to unclog any type of drain. Pour about a half-cup into the clogged drain and let it sit for about a half hour. Then chase it with a half a pot of boiling water. Next, run the water down the drain to check if the water is flowing through. Don’t be surprised when it works! 

For the eco-friendly cleaner: Live enzyme cleaners 
Most people swear off all household cleaners, but there are actually some that don’t contain any toxic chemicals. Also good for the environment, enzymes are biological compounds that help speed up chemical reactions, so they’re not only eco-friendly, but they’re super effective as well. Some of the most popular brands include Biokleen and Earth Enzymes. 

For any drain: Drain basket 
Sometimes the best solutions are the simplest ones. A drain basket will help a clog from starting completely. You can find them pretty much anywhere—online, at home repair stores, Target, Wal-Mart…and they’re super inexpensive to boot!

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - HOW TO JUDGE A MAN

HOW SAFE IS AN AIRPORT FULL BODY SCANNER?

How Safe is an Airport Full Body Scanner?
By Ty Bollinger
The Truth About Cancer website (www.thetruthaboutcancer.com)
Below is a summary of the article.  To read the article in its entirety click on the link below, or copy and paste into your browser.
ARTICLE SUMMARY
  • The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) claims their “advanced imaging technology” devices are just as safe as traditional metal detectors. Research shows this isn’t the case and that the doses of electromagnetic radiation emitted by the TSA’s millimeter wave technology machines can cause cancer.
  • Millimeter wave technology is used in the treatment of skin cancer (due to its known skin-heating properties), which means it undeniably has an effect on human cells.
  • Like all other forms of radiation, millimeter waves don’t differentiate between healthy cells and malignant cells. In the case of concentrated radiation blasts from millimeter wave body scanners, it means every cell on the surface of your body is targeted.
  • A World Health Organization (WHO) report revealed that millimeter waves not only heat the skin but also damage eyesight and cause cancer − particularly skin cancer.
  • By choosing a manual pat-down, air travelers can minimize their radiation exposure and thus minimize the risk of developing cancer.
