Use Salt To Clean Your Iron

Salt? Yep! Pour salt on your ironing board (Perhaps cover with a pillow case or something to make clean up easier), and then iron the salt with the steam option off. The dirt on your iron will stick to the salt, making for an easy clean!

Removing Hard Water Stains

That’s right, a lemon!  I just cut it in half and use the actual lemon to scrub the hard water stains on any fixture. 

Like I said, just rub the lemon on the fixture and rinse.  The spots will magically disappear before your eyes and you’ll be left with this!

No more ring around the tub!
Next, I put the baking soda and white vinegar to work on the sinks and this time I remembered to take pictures of it in action.  Check it out.
This is my sink before I cleaned it.
Here the baking soda and vinegar are working their magic.
Once I started scrubbing, the baking soda and vinegar mixed together into a paste that really made the sink and faucet shine!
Like new!  Again, make sure to rinse well with hot water or the baking soda will leave a cloudy white residue.
The last thing I tackled was the toilet.  I saved it for last because it’s my least favorite job and it’s probably the most embarrassing photo to share with you.  First, a few tips. I sprinkle the inside of the bowl with baking soda then I spray it with vinegar.  I let the foam work for a few minutes then scrub with a toilet brush.  Next, I spray down the whole toilet with vinegar and wipe it clean.  That’s it.  It only takes a few minutes and the vinegar acts as a disinfectant killing the germs, neutralizing odors and removing all evidence of accidents from little boys who still have trouble aiming.  Here’s the proof.
As much as I hate to admit it, this is the before photo of the toilet.
And here is the after.  All clean!
That’s it.  Three inexpensive, easy to find, all natural ingredients to clean, deodorize and disinfect the bathroom.

Foods to avoid if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Eating fruits and vegetables may help to prevent rheumatoid arthritis. A study from the Mayo Clinic showed that women who ate diets higher in fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis. This study doesn't show that eating fruits and vegetables will improve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; however, everyone should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

There are some foods that may help you feel better by reducing inflammation. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids may help to reduce inflammation. Choose foods with healthy fats such as fish, walnuts, soy, canola oil, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Here's a list of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods.

One of the many things that grow inside a uterus and cause problems for some while others barely know about it in their life are FIBROIDS.I was recently diagnosed with multiple fibroids and cysts when my usual monthly periods became a little too unbearable.We got an ultrasound done which led to many other gynecologists doing the same thing for confirmation.

My fibroids are small but I have been told that my periods will be stopped for a couple of months and regular ultrasounds will be done to ensure that no fibroids are growing out of proportions or are getting benign or malignant,which again is done through a biopsy.I just thought I will write about a  bit of my journey as I spend this time scared.

I told a couple of my friends and they all had scary stories to tell about how some relative didn't take care of themselves and were finally diagnosed with cancer at a later stage and died from it.I had my share of panic attack yesterday night and after a proper informative chat with my …
