 Since cockroaches feed on food particles and kitchen waste, it is advisable to empty it weekly. Clean any water that collects underneath after taking away the trash bag. Always cover the trash can with its lid to prevent them from getting inside.

2. Seal All Cracks:



Cracks and crevices serve as nesting places for cockroaches. Make sure you seal cracks both inside the house and those outside. Such cracks can be found in places love window frames, window moldings, around doors, under sinks, around soak away pits and openings in the kitchen and bathroom.

3. Keep The House Clean:




If a house is clean and smell fresh, cockroaches will stay away. After cooking, clean stove and cooker tops and get rid od food particles. Wash all dirty dishes and do not leave dirty plates in the sink over night. Cover left over food properly in the kitchen or dinning, or put them in ziploc bags and store in the fridge. Clean any sticky spills on the floor immediately and don't leave out cut or over ripe fruits on the table or counter.

6 Ways To Prevent Mosquito Bites




My dear readers, i have been away for over a month and i know you have missed reading my posts. Well, i went on a vacation, and i rested well. I have a refreshed head now and ready to bring you more interesting posts. This is the season when mosquitoes strive and are looking for human blood to feed on. When mosquitoes bite they inject sporozoites into th blood stream thereby transmitting Malaria.

The female Anopheles mosquitoes pick up parasite from humans who are infected when they suck blood to feed their eggs. Out of over 430 Anopheles species that exist only about 30-40 transmits malaria. Mosquitoes have those that hide indoors (endophilic) and those that stay outside (exophilic). Malaria is very harmful to pregnant women and children. According to the W.H.O. 2014 report on malaria, there was an estimated 198 million cases of Malaria worldwide in 2013, 584,000 deaths are caused by Malaria, 90 percent of which occur in Africa.

Ways To Prevent Mosquito Bites
In order to stay free from Malaria you should first prevent mosquitoe bites by taking some precautionary measures which includes  the following

1. Wear Protective And Bright Coloured Clothing:


When going outdoors wear Loose Long-sleeved shirts and trousers in order to completely cover the skin. Clothing may also be sprayed with permit rin. Wear shoes and socks that cover the feet well. Do not wear tight clothing with thin fabric as mosquitoes can bite through them. Wear bright coloured clothes because mosquitoes are naturally attracted to tight dark coloured clothes,especially black and blue so wear bright colours which will not attract them.

2. Keep Your Surroundings Clean: 


Make sure your compound is clean and get rid of any standing water where mosquitoes can breed in. If you have a pool, always cover it when it is not in use and treat it with chemicals such as chlorine. Cut all grasses and do not allow dead tree leaves to linger around or heaped around the compound, get rid of old tires and used containers, natural low points on a piece of property because they form breeding ground for mosquitoes.

3. Use Mosquito Repellents:

Apply repellents specially formulated such as DEET (NN-diethyl-m-toluamide) 30%-50% which are recommended for adults and children over 2 months. Apply to uncovered skin when going outdoors or to the bush and it is effective for several hours.

4. Sleep Under Treated Mosquito Nets:


According to UNICEF, about one billion insecticide treated nets have been distributed in Africa between the year 2000 and 2015. It is advised to sleep under Permethrin treated net because it has fine holes that are big enough to allow breeze to easily pass through but can not allow biting mosquitoes to get in. Make sure to sleep without touching the sides. Also put nets on the windows so that mosquitoes  can not come in.

5. Use Insecticide Spray and Coils:


TO drive away mosquitoes from inside the house. Make sure to not stay in when you do because they are harmful to health, as some people complain to find it difficult to breath, and cough after inhaling the smoke from coils.

6. Put On The Fan & Wear Thick Socks Before Going To Bed:

Also, if you have a lot of mosquitoes around the house, sleep with the fan on because strong breeze drive them away, you can also wear thick socks on your hands and feet to cover them since clothing can not cover them properly. And don't forget to rub mentholated petroleum jelly on your ankles, wrists, and shoulder if you can not cover them maybe due to hot weather and absence of electricity.

If you follow the above measures you will surely be free from mosquito bites as well as Malaria.

How To Make Coconut Oil At Home

One of the things I love in my beauty regimen is coconut oil. It is one of my favourite body oils. I use it for my hair, skin and face.It is one of the best body oils you can use for your skin. I have also come to realise  that the one I make myself works best and that way am sure it's not mixed with other things as the ones I buy. The coconut oil I make is natural, not heated because I learned that the heat destroys the vital nutrients.

Coconut oil is made by extracting oil through different processes from the coconut meat of mature fresh coconuts which are harvested from the coconut palm Cocos Nucifera. Coconut oil is has about 6 different saturated fatty acids which include Lauric Acid (48%), Myristic acid (16%), Palmitic acid(9.5%), Caprylic acid (7%), one monosaturated fatty acid which is Oleic (6.5%), others (5%).
Due to its high saturated fatty acid content, health authorities including the World Health Organisation (WHO) have warned that it should not be consumed regularly because studies have revealed that it increases total blood cholesterol levels, both HDL and LDL, which in turn leads to high risk of Cardio Vascular disease.

Uses Of Coconut Oil

Despite its high saturated fat content (similar to that of animal fat), virgin coconut oil has become widely used in recent years due to its sweet nutty flavour.

1. It is used in cooking especially in frying. I personally like to use it to fry eggs. It is commonly used to make baked goods, pastries, pop corn and saut├ęs. It adds calories and saturated fat to snacks leading to increased energy balance and weight gain.

2. In some parts of the world, such as the Philipines, it is used as diesel engine fuel, to power generators and transport engines. In the islands of the Pacific, it is used as engine lubricants and transformer oil.

3. For beauty and personal uses as mineral oil, moisturizer for mild to dry skin. Studies have proved that, it reduces loss of protein when used for hair.

4. It is a base ingredient in soap making. Soaps made with coconut oil  though hard, retain moisture than those made with other oils.

Other Uses
  • It was used in India before the advent of electricity for lighting or illumination.
  • Used to make repellents for preventing bug bites.
  • Acids derived from coconut oil are used as herbicides.
  • Coconut oil and it's fatty acids are used as raw materials in the manufacture of surfectants such as Cocamide DEA and MEA.
Well these are just a few uses, as coconut oil has many uses, according to Wellness Mama, it has 101 uses and you can read them on this link http://wellnessmama.com/5734/101-uses-for-coconut-oil/

Reasons To Take A Holiday/Vacation


Holiday is the period I always looked forward to when I was a kid, especially the longest one which was end of the last term of a particular class, I felt so much excitement due the fun, long sleeps, holiday TV programs, long hours of play with friends that laid ahead...

What is Holidays/Vacation? 

A holiday or vacation is a leave of absence  from a regular occupation,or break from studies (period between terms), or a pleasure trip/ journey abroad usually for the purpose of recreation or tourism. They are often spent with family, friends or alone. It can mean either going somewhere or staying in at home, otherwise known as a "Staycation".

The custom of summer break is said to have been introduced by King William the Conqueror from Normandy where it facilitated the grape harvest. In those days, in the summer rich  families(Upper-Class) moved to a summer home, leaving their usual home vacant.

A lot of workers all over the world do not utilise their vacation days according to research reasons being that they do not want to loose their jobs, they are afraid not to fall behind in their work, lack of funds, some do not want to loose chances of being promoted, while some is due to what researchers call the "Martyr Complex"- they believe they are the only ones who can do their job and are do not want work to pile up on their desk when they return.



 Vacation in its real sense suppose to mean absence from office and work altogether but recent developments in Communication Technology such as the Internet, Mobile Phones, Instant Messaging, Presence Tracking, etc have begun to change the nature of vacation such that it means absence from the work place rather than temporary absence from work.

In most parts of the world such as Great Britain, North America and even Nigeria, workers telecommunicate while on vacation by making business calls rather than completely cutting off from work. According to research, in order to get the full benefits of taking a vacation, one has to be completely disconnected from both time out of the office as well as time off work.

People who were more involved with work while on vacation, were highly exhausted and disengaged from work when they returned, while those who were completely disconnected from work were happier, more active and satisfied even when they face heavy work loads.

To completely disengage from work while away,  try not to think about the things that annoy you at work, do not check emails unless it's very important, and limit the use of electronic gadgets. Remaining connected to work during the holidays is said to generate short-term business benefits but has long-term psychological consequences.

Golden Milk Drink Recipe


Well I have heard so much about a special drink and I have decided to share it today with you readers after giving it a try. It is no other than the "Golden Milk" drink. Ironically, this drink is not made from gold, but from a combination of of any milk of choice, say coconut, soy, cow, or goat milk, etc and the wonder spice "Turmeric". Well I want to believe that not all of you know what it is. It is a spice that looks very much like ginger, but has an orange-yellow coloured flesh and a brown skin. It comes from the root of the Curcuma Longa plant of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae.

 It is native to southern Asia especially India and Indonesia where it has been cultivated and harvested for over 5, 000 years. It is traditionally called " "Indian Saffron" due to its unique deep-yellow orange colour and has been widely used as spice in curries, for healing ailments and as dye for textile. In nigeria it is known as "red ginger".

  Turmeric is well known for its therapeutic properties because it contains a polyphenol known as Curcumin which destroys a wide range of diseases. It is said that, curcumin's healing power can be compared to well known drugs for arthritis such as Cortisone which has huge side effects, but curcumin produces none of these at all.

Health Benefits 

Turmeric when incorporated in your diet, according to Step To Health has over 150 therapeutic functions. Besides rheumatoid arthritis, it has antioxidant, anti-cancer  as well as antiseptic properties.
  • Prevents hair loss, dandruff and calms scalp irritation.
  • It promotes weight loss by regulating the metabolism.
  • Fights flu, cold and bronchitis.
  • It increases the the production of enzymes that digest fats and sugars and deprives cholesterol from developing gall stones.
  • It relieves rheumatoid arthritis by reducing swelling.
  • Enables the correct functionality of the liver.
  • Promotes fast healing of wounds.
  • Reduces menstrual cramps.
  • Improves digestion.
  • Reduces blood sugar level in diabetics.
  • Fights Cancer and leukemia in children.
  • Clears up skin conditionsor and beautifies the skin and prevents premature aging.
  • It fights joint and muscle pains, headaches, and other stress related illnesses.
 This drink has a lot of benefits to overall health and can be consumed at any time of the day and at night before going to bed to aid you to sleep soundly. Black pepper is added to the recipe because it's active compound called Piperine facilitates the absorbtion of curcumin in turmeric by 1000 times.

How Often Your Bath Towels Should Be Washed

Folded White Bath Towels
"Why do we wash bath towels, Aren't we clean when we use them?"- Steve Wright

Today's post is about bath towels and the thought of the sight of some bath towels make me have goose pimples all over, also when I hear people share bath towels I am so amazed though not very surprised cos I have experienced it at some point while growing up, when I and my two younger siblings had to share a bath towel and wash it after God knows when,lol you picture that?. Nowadays, i know a good number of people who wash their bath towels after 4 weeks of use or even more. This brings me to the question of how long you use your bath towels before you wash them, and how do you wash them?

  Experts recommend that bath towels should be washed after three to five uses, not three to five days or more. This is bacause when used to clean the skin, it removes millions of dead skin flakes, cells and dirt which sticks to the towel fibres. Also, experts say that when towels become wet after drying your body (especially urinary and anal sections), it locks in a lot of moisture, harbours odours faster, this makes them smell musty making it likely to breed moulds and fungus.


Air Drying A Bath Towel
   On the contrary, if you hang wet towels to dry and have some fresh air, these germs and micro organisms can not survive.But towels become wet again, when used the next time, the micro organisms can come alive again, so the best thing to do is to wash them before drying. It is not advisable to share bath towels with family members because if a person has a skin condition or fungal infection such as athlete's foot, it can be transmitted to another person or if it has shown signs of healing, reuse of the same towel can introduce the infection back to the skin.

The thing is early morning sunshine is a source of Vitamin D also known as "The Sunshine Vitamin". A bit of the days sun is actually good for you and not getting enough has some disadvantages which are stated below:

1. Poor Eye Health:

If you do not spend few minutes in the sun from time to time, you lack vitamin D vital for good eye health and could suffer from an age related eye disease known as Macular Degeneration that causes vision loss.

Life Changing Invention

British Columbian Teenager Invented A Phone Charging Coffee Mug


Photo: Aroma Espresso Bar

An 18 year old BC teenager by name Ann Makosinski has invented a phone charging coffee mug which is called the eDrink. She made it with a layer of peltier tiles that uses the temperature differences between their two sides to generate electricity. Users can make use of this energy by plugging their cell phones into a USB port on the bottom of the cup and sip their coffee as it charges. The power produced by this cup is enough to charge a phone for 30 minutes at a time.

According to Mental Floss, the invention was inspired by her friends whom she observed always had low phone battery and also that their coffee took too long to cool down, so she decided to make this one solution to solve the two problems. It is said that in 2013, she had also used peltier tiles to create a flashlight which is powered by the body heat released from your hands as you hold it: the invention earned her a $25,000 scholarship, meanwhile the eDrink earned her a $50,000 grant from Shell in December.

The teenager said that sometime this year, she will like her eDrink and flashlight to get into the market especially those in developing countries. I think Nigerians should get ready to thank Ann as our low battery days are numbered because even though we don't drink much coffee here hot water can do the trick . * wink
