The tip of the week (2)

I’m back to give you a serious tip when you have a little misfortune.

Sometimes, I can be very dextrous and others I’m just a butterfingers.

Last week, I have decided to use super glue to stick a hook on my closet.

But, nothing happened like I expected to. Eventually, I stuck my fingers together and not the hook.

The problem, the tube of glue was broken and all the liquid was running on my hands.

If you use cyanoacrylate glue, be careful for it glues very quickly skin to skin contact very easily.

When I figured that, it was too late but I quickly mastered the situation because I knew what to do.

No need to tell that glue is a dangerous product thus you have to react swiftly.

1. Put your hands or the body part under a cold water tap.

2. Repeat this over and over and use soap to remove the most part.

3. Use acetone to remove the glue but be careful, use it WITHOUT cotton! So, just pour acetone in a glass and put your hand in it, to wash it. (It’s very important not to use cotton otherwise you’ll get burn, to be stuck it’s enough). Ladies, if you use nail polish, you must certainly have a remover, you can use it if it contains acetone.

4. Dry your hands

5. Take a pumice stone and wet it.

6. Use your wet pumice stone to rub your fingers.

7. Wash a last time your hands and moisturize them with a cream without alcohol or perfume.

Be careful with super glue, if you are like me a bit clumsy, take gloves!

The tip of the week (1)

Howdy,

Today, I have decided to give you a tip each week.  This tip will be different each time, it could be about cooking, how to repair something, about spots on clothes, when you get burn. Anyways, for everything!

Let’s introduce the first tip of the week :

How to remove a spot of blood

blood

Indeed, everyone has had this problem one day, a bad stain of blood on clothes.

Let me explain you how to remove this stain safely and without damage for your clothes.

First of all, immediatly take off your dress, blouse, skirt, shorts or whatever it is and put it under cold (very cold) water to remove the maximum of blood.

You are going to ask me why cold water, why not hot water. I will answer NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Never use hot water because blood will coagulate and it is going to be more difficult or even impossible to get rid of it.

Rub a little with some soap but be gentle.

If the stain is still there, you can also use an aspirin tablet. Let the aspirin tablet dissolves into a glass of water.

Take a rag and pour this blend on it.

Then, just use this rag and rub the stain with it.

If it still doesn’t work, your last chance will be some physiological serum on a cotton pad.

At last, for strong clothes, you can add some salt in the water.

When the most of the stain is removed, just do your laundry as usual.

Hope this piece of advice will be useful!
