How to of the Day
How to Make a Gumball Machine Fish Tank
Aquariums are an easy, relatively low-maintenance way to keep a pet at your home. If you’d like to create a fun twist on this aquatic environment, try renovating a gumball machine with special aquarium supplies. Once you’ve cleaned out your gumball machine and made a few cosmetic changes, use power tools and sealant to trim and install aquarium flooring in your new tank. After you’ve attached the filter and added in some fun lights and decorations, you’ll be ready to introduce some fish into your new tank!
How to Hang Bikes from the Ceiling
While bikes are convenient and useful ways to get exercise, they aren’t as practical when the weather gets cold and icy. Instead of having your bike take up space in your home, consider hanging it from the ceiling of your garage, attic, basement, or other storage area! If you’re looking for a simple way to hang up your bikes, try attaching a rubber hook to a ceiling joist and dangling your equipment by one wheel. If you’re looking for a more convenient way to lift and lower your bikes, try using a pulley system instead!
How to Care for an 8 Week Old Puppy
At 8 weeks of age, your puppy is ready to leave its mother and littermates, and join your family. Your focus should be on your puppy’s basic needs of eating, drinking, sleeping, playing, and eliminating. Around this time, a puppy is also becoming more curious and interested in its environment, so this is the best time to start teaching your puppy everything it needs to know!
How to Get Rid of Bad Smells in Your Fridge
Over time, it’s natural for most refrigerators to build up a slightly unpleasant aroma. While the smell can be off-putting, it’s not doing any harm to your food itself. If you’d like to remove lingering food smells before they permanently soak into the interior of your fridge, start by throwing away any bad food. You can also place a deodorizer or 2—like coffee grounds and activated charcoal—on an upper shelf. To prevent bad smells in the first place, throw out food as soon as it begins to spoil, and always store food in airtight containers.
How to Clear Your Sinuses and Ears
Your sinuses and ears are connected by way of your Eustachian tubes. So, if they get clogged or inflamed, then you can feel awful pressure and congestion in both of them at the same time. Fortunately, there are things you can do to try to clear your sinuses and ears. You can work to decongest your sinuses by drinking plenty of water, using medication, and moisturizing your sinuses. You can also help them drain on their own by avoiding temperature fluctuations, pressure changes, and substances like caffeine and alcohol, which can make your symptoms worse. If your symptoms get worse or don’t improve after more than a week, see your doctor.

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."

Raw Food Diet: Avocado Mango Salsa

4.8 / 5 Stars | 145 Reviews

by Six Pack To Go

"Yowzers! Sweet and hot salsa with tangy mangoes and habaneros. Great with pork, chicken or fish or just with chips. You can omit the habaneros and add red bell peppers for a non-spicy version, but then again, why would you want to? Remember, ALWAYS wear gloves when working with habaneros!"
