What animal is that even from.

8. Use coarse salt to clean cast iron.

From Martha Stewart.

9. Towel + broom = a way to reach high, hard-to-clean spaces.

From Real Simple.

10. Clean screens with coffee filters.

12. Don’t miss the tiny spots, like the tracks on sliding doors or window panes.

Vinegar can help you get these areas spotless.

13. Make everything in your fridge organized and easily accessible.

14. Store condiments in an egg carton to prevent spills.

Tx, Alton.

15. Fold your shirts vertically to save space and maximize visibility.

16. Properly fold a fitted sheet.

Swap out flannel for cotton now that it’s actually warm enough.

17. De-pill your clothes with a razor and some tape.

You can de-pill your winter clothes before putting them away and your spring clothes after taking them out of storage. Directions here.

18. Vacuum-seal bulky winter clothes and blankets for easy storage.

They’ll be as good as the day you put them away come next winter (not that you want to think about next winter).

19. Use the hanger trick to get rid of clothes you don’t wear anymore.

Hang all your clothes so your hangers face backward. When you wear something, turn the hanger around. After a year, if something is still on a backward hanger, give it away.

20. And the best possible advice: Drink while you clean.

You know how sometimes you come home after a few drinks and have a strange, overwhelming urge to clean everything? Channel that feeling. The best part is when you wake up the next day and are genuinely surprised and delighted at how clean everything is.

Many of these useful tricks, plus a ton more, come from r/lifehacks and Real Simple.

19 Reasons To Never Mess With A Parent

1. They’re constantly sleep deprived.

So they’re basically zombies.

2. If you cross their kids they will make you pay.

Seriously. Try it and see what happens.

3. They can take a beating.

4. They’re impossible to lie to.

5. They have a tool for everything.

6. No one can make you feel as guilty.

And they don’t even need to say a word.

7. They somehow always know when you’re up to no good in your room.

8. They’re not afraid to catch vomit with their bare hands.

9. They can shame you with just their eyes.

10. They literally suck the snot out of their babies’ noses.

She’s using a NoseFrida. It’s a real thing. No, really. It is.

11. They don’t care how embarrassing they are.

12. They won’t take your crap.

13. They exact punishment Guantanamo Bay style.

14. They have more patience than you.

They’ve sat through hundreds of hours of this drivel.

15. They’re surprisingly agile.

You try catching a cake while wearing a mesh cap and holding a fishing pole.

16. They’ve endured way more pain than you have.

This is one doodle that can’t be undid, homeskillet.

17. They will go to disturbing lengths to be near their children.

18. They have an unsettling sense of humor.

Not all dad jokes are bad puns. Some involve chainsaws.

19. Did I mention what they’ll do if you cross their kid?

Because I really can’t emphasize that point enough.

So if you encounter parents out in the wild be careful not to antagonize them.

Instead, try to win them over.

Parents can actually be pretty cool once you get to know them.

22 Ways To Keep Your Kids Happy When It’s Cold And Icky Outside

1. Use Halloween costumes to keep the baby warm.

Those bunny and bear suits are frequently toastier than sweaters and jackets… and cute as the dickens, too.

2. Whip up perfectly smooth hot cocoa — there’s a trick to it!

Using powered hot cocoa mix? Dump it in the cup, then add just a little hot water. Stir, stir, stir. Then add a little more hot water. Repeat until full and smooth and creamy and clump-free. Mmmmmm.

3. Paint those rain boots.

Now you can dazzle on the next rainy day!

4. …And line them, too.

Fleecy DIY liners will keep their little feet warm and avoid that dreaded winter conundrum: cold-yet-dry in rain boots, or warm-yet-wet (and therefore cold) in Uggs?

5. Prevent Norovirus with grape juice.

Rumor has it that drinking grape juice keeps the dreaded stomach bug at bay!

But if that doesn’t work, keep a potty by the bed.

It works really well as a vomit receptacle. :-(

6. Acknowledge that getting ready to go outside is enough of an ordeal to count as its own activity.

Nothing to do? No activities or playdates planned? Suggest a simple walk around the block. By the time you get your kids’ snowsuit on…

And his scarf…

…you’ll have spent an hour right there. Your stroll will take another hour as the child inspects every heap of ice or puddle of slush…

Back at home, de-bundling him will take yet another hour. Then presto-chango, it’s time for dinner! Your “walk around the block” just consumed an entire afternoon!

7. It’s a good time to educate your kids about cute, cuddly Arctic animals.

Even if you don’t normally believe in screen time, it’ll help trick your kids into thinking that winter is fun. Try downloading the Winter Animals app in iTunes.

8. Make every night a slumber party.

A cute sleeping bag is fun, cozy, and will insure your child doesn’t kick off the covers.

9. Layer up, and avoid using cotton as the bottom layer.

It really works to keep kiddies warm!

Just avoid using 100% cotton as the bottom layer… it gets wet with perspiration, then makes your kid cold.

10. Use kid-safe chapstick.

All the best moms carry baby-safe moisturizer for those wintry chafed faces…

But in case you forgot, try some silicone-based diaper cream on those poor little red, roughened nostrils instead.

11. Cure a croupy cough with some steam.

If you hear the tell-tale seal-barking sounds of croup, bring your child into the bathroom, close the door, and turn on the hot shower. Sit beside the shower (not in it) and breathe in the steamy air. Then…

Making sure your little one is dry and well-bundled, stand in front of the fridge and open the freezer door, this time breathing in the cold air. (Other options include stepping outside if it’s chilly out, or turning on the AC and standing in front of it.)

12. Always carry a spare set of clothes.

When kids get wet, they can lose their body heat even more rapidly, so keep an outfit on hand so that you can change them into dry clothes at the drop of a (woolen) hat.

… Including extra mittens.

They’re the first things to get wet after a snowball fight!

13. … And buy extra hats, too.

Kids need hats. Kids lose hats.

14. Do cute things with lone gloves.

Kids lose gloves, too. But if you turn the remaining glove into a chipmunk, everyone wins!

15. Make friends with the family next door.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never had a playdate with your neighbors before — you automatically have something in common: it’s yucky outside, and you all need something to do. Invite them over, or knock on their door bearing cookies. They’ll be thrilled to see you!

16. Keep your child’s bike wheels from getting muddy.

… By making mud guards: one for the front (using an old detergent container)…

17. Give your child’s snowball a fighting chance.

Arm your children with ice cream scoopers for making perfectly shaped snowballs. All’s fair in snowball fights, right?

18. Make an indoor slide.

Another rainy day, another fort made out of sheets? Yawn. Try a slide made out of cardboard boxes, instead!

19. Keep everyone’s wrists warm with socks.

Protect that cold area between your kid’s mitten and his sleeve by cutting the toes out of a pair of socks and using them as wrist-warmers.

20. Keep everyone’s butts warm with socks.

Sitting on a cold toilet seat in winter is one of the worst things, ever.

21. Subject socks to a final indignity.

Degrade a pair of socks even further by slipping them over your kids wrists for another purpose: snot receptacle.

22. Read “The Snowy Day”… again

The book by Ezra Jack Keats will help you remember that a snowy day, seen through the eyes of a little boy named Peter, can be pure magic.

17 DIY Accessories To Keep You Cozy This Winter

1. Faux Fur Pompoms

Add some spunk to your winter wardrobe with these DIY pompoms by Aimee from Clones and Clowns.

Materials: thick wool yarn (real wool if possible, it looks so much nicer!), scissors, a brush, and your hands.

1. Wrap the wool around the palm of your hand about 50 times.

2. Cut another piece of wool 30cm long.

3. Take the wrapped yarn off of your hand, lay it on top of the single piece of cut yarn, then tie the cut yarn around the center of your wrapped yarn. Tie it very tightly!

4. Chop open the loops to make the pompom. Gently tug at the wool to open out your pompom.

5. Now brush your little pompom friend with a wiry brush to give it the perfect faux fur look ! Keep going until it’s perfectly furry.

Tada! Make lots of different colors to accessorize hats, bags, scarves, and more!

2. Tights Turned Headband

Aimee also turned a pair of tights into this adorable wintery headband.

Supplies: a pair of tights (thicker materials works better), scissors, needle and thread.

1. Cut your tights in the middle of each leg so that you have two pieces the size of your head (simply measuring by holding tights around your head like a headband) and a third piece 10cm wide.

2. Start with one of the longer pieces flat on the table. Fold one side into the centre. Fold the other side into the centre too, joining the two in the middle.

3. Slip one side in the other and fold the outside edge in for a neat hem. Hand stitch or machine sew it in place. Don’t worry, tights are difficult to sew in a straight line – you won’t be able to see the stitching when it’s done.

4. Repeat with other head-sized piece of material so that you have two headbands (you’ll understand why very soon)! Place one headband on top of the other, seams together in the middle.

5. Pinch the top headband and top layer of bottom headband to create your bow. Take your smaller piece of tights, and fold in both edges to make it look neat.

6. Place it on your pinched bow and pull both edges to the back to create the middle of your bow.

7. Stitch together at the back. Stitch through the rest of the bow too, simply making sure you never go through the front layer so that, as suggested above, your sewing is invisible from the front.

Adjust your bow so it’s just right, Now wear your pretty headband out into that chilly weather!

14 Beauty Resolutions That Are Actually Worth Keeping In 2014

1. Wear sunscreen.

brickrena/brickrena

Just do it, OK? Your future self will thank you.

2. Invest in some good tools.

Geo-grafika/Geo-grafika

Shutterstock / AleksandrN

 

You might be better off with beauty tools that matter — they could be better for your health and have more efficient powers than some conventional options. Microfiber cloths are gentle alternatives for your face, while glass files give your nails a better, healthier shape.

3. Go back to solid manicures.

Nail art is cool and all, but sometimes a solid color can speak serious volumes. It’s a lot less time consuming, too.

4. Turn your beauty goods into multipurpose items.

Alanna Okun / BuzzFeed

Sometimes, you just don’t want to buy a specific product for EVERY. SINGLE. THING. on your body, so resort to the products you already have. Try lipstick for blush and eyeshadow, conditioner for intimates laundry, or nipple cream for cracked areas of skin.

You’ll save your money AND your energy!

5. Try a beauty subscription service.

Whether it’s a Birchbox, Julep, or the new Beauty Beat Box (launching February 2014), you’ll always get excited for every, single magical delivery.

6. Remove at least one harmful product from your routine.

ariwasabi/ariwasabi

 

You could possibly improve your skin after taking out an irritant. For example, your foaming shampoo probably contains sodium lauryl sulfate, and it could be contributing to your forehead and scalp breakouts. Sulfate-free shampoos are also better for color-treated hair.

Additionally, try avoiding brands that still participate in animal testing, because that’s so 20th century.

7. Cut some time off of your morning hair routine.

 

Hair can sometimes be the worst, and could make getting ready feel like a marathon. Try some quick hairstyles like the 4-Step Bun or Five-Minute Chic Twists.

8. Actually take care of your teeth.

DimaSobko/DimaSobko

Sure, a standard toothbrush and toothpaste do the trick, right? NOPE.

You could add floss, and choose products based on your dental needs — if you find your teeth hurt EVERY TIME you drink tea, it’s time to get some Sensodyne in your life. Or, invest in some cool dental hygiene tools, like the Flossolution that uses a dual brush and floss system.

9. Consider cleansing alternatives.

Will Gluck Productions / Via sodahead.com

Who knew that oil could be the cure to your oily face, or that purple shampoo is the key to gray hair? Well, now you know, so explore the possibilities.

10. Find your perfect MLBB shade.

From Head To Toe / frmheadtotoe.com

“MLBB” stands for “My Lips But Better,” and it refers to lipsticks or glosses that enhance the natural color of your lips. Instead of wearing nude, MLBB’s promote colors that are actually similar to your lip tone, which range in finishes and hue.

Check out this video from the From Head To Toe vlog about MLBB’s.

11. Take a hair color risk.

Neil Hall / Reuters

Sienna Miller’s rose gold hair is the perfect mix of natural and candied hues. It’s a much more subtle take on the wild and crazy ombré locks of 2013.

12. Take off your makeup before bed.

phasinphoto/phasinphoto

Don’t complain about breakouts if you don’t take off your makeup. When using makeup wipes, remember you should follow up with washing your face.

13. Recycle or purge your old makeup.

loonara/loonara

Well, you probably need more room for your 2014 beauty hauls, so try recycling your makeup for different uses — or throw it out if it’s expired.

If you’re still at a loss for space after letting some stuff go, these beauty organization tips might be worth a try.

14. Finally, find out what looks good on YOU.

Eric Henderson / Reuters

Ben A. Pruchnie / Getty Images for BFI

 

This year, get rid of those excuses like “I don’t look good in red lipstick,” because in reality, people of all skin tones can rock a good red. The solution? Do some digging and find out which shades, remedies, and products work well on you, not on everybody else.

So, find out your skin type, learn the difference between warm and cool hues, and experiment!
