How to of the Day
How to Care for a Bruise Naturally
Bruises form on your body as a response to an injury or blow. Most bruises aren't serious, so don't worry! However, the associated pain and swelling might be uncomfortable for a few days. If you want to get rid of your bruise naturally, there are several easy treatments you can try at home to reduce swelling and speed up healing time. If your bruise covers a significant portion of a limb or doesn't fade on its own within 2 weeks, it's best to get checked out by a doctor to make sure everything is okay.
How to Make Disinfectant Wipes
Disposable disinfecting wipes offer a quick and convenient way to keep your home and hands clean and free of germs and viruses. However, with news of the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic dominating the headlines, these basic cleaning supplies are flying off the shelves. If you go to your local grocery store or pharmacy and find that all the disinfecting wipes are out of stock, don’t panic! You can easily make your own disinfecting wipes for home surfaces with a few basic household supplies. While doctors recommend washing your hands with soap and water or using an alcohol-based gel hand sanitizer, you can also make disinfectant hand wipes if you don’t have access to anything better.
How to Prepare Your Yard for Summer
The secret to keeping your yard thriving throughout the summer lies in the lawn care techniques you implement during the spring. By getting started early in the year, you'll develop a resilient lawn that's resistant to the effects of the sun, weeds, pests and heavy foot traffic. Follow these guidelines to prepare your yard to grow nice and green for the summer.
How to Be Prepared for a Hike
Hiking is a great way to spend time outdoors and get a lot of exercise. While you may be eager to go out into the wilderness, taking time to prepare for your hike will help keep you safe and comfortable. Even if you’re just going out for a day hike, there are essentials you should bring with you. If you plan on going on a more advanced hike, warm up with some exercise beforehand so you don’t get exhausted later on. As long as you plan ahead, you'll be ready to take on any hike!
How to Clean Copper
Copper makes beautiful jewelry, household items, and decor, and you likely want to keep your items looking their best. However, exposure to oxygen causes copper to develop a black patina over time and your pieces might become stained. Fortunately, you can restore the rose gold luster of your favorite copper pieces using products you likely have in your home. With a little elbow-grease, you may be able to get your precious pieces looking new again.

Low-Cholesterol Recipes: Homemade Pickled Ginger (Gari)

4.76 / 5 Stars | 21 Reviews

by Phoena

"Pickled ginger is called gari or amazu shoga in Japanese. It's served with sushi or sashimi and eaten between different kinds of sushi. It helps to clean your taste buds and enhance the flavors. It's also great with Century Eggs - a Chinese delicacy. You can find prepared pickled ginger in pink or white at most Asian markets but I preferred to make my own and share with family and friends."
