Summer is here again!It is time to visit your favorite resort,beaches etc..The temperature is good for swimming,sunbathing and it is relaxing to stay the beach all day.Isn't it?If you go for swimming expect a sunburn effect to your skin.If your skin is not quiet sensitive then your lucky!Whitening lotion ,sunblock is in high demand again especially for the girls who care about their skin complexion.But, my secret is "baking soda" instead of powder or lotion.Baking soda can be used to treat sunburn,minor skin irritations like insect bite and stings.Simply, mix a paste out of 3 parts baking soda to 1 part of water and apply to affected area.

Do you have Plastic Chairs and Tables at home?

I bought plastic chairs and table in the house because it is cheaper compare to furniture.Its durability varies how to take care of them.
Here are some tips to make your plastic wares last :

How to Take Care your Jeans ?

I do mostly housekeeping and laundry this week.I want to share tips how I care my favorite pair jeans.

1.Don't wash them as often as your wear them.Denims can be good for about three to four ears before hitting the wash.

2.Denims benefit most from hand washing and rubbing only the dirty areas.If you must use washing machine set it on gentle cycle and run for the shortest amount possible.

3.Use cold water in the wash so spandex material stays stretchy.

4.Use a mild and bleach- free detergent,the indigo hue could fade prematurely.

5.Once you spot a rip ,have it stitched up immediately with the same color thread.
