Mice enter homes through cracks and holes found in walls and floors. They typically make nests in unused corners and feed on crumbs.

People often fail to notice the presence of one mouse or two, but lack of carefulness may lead to full infestation.

The key to preventing mice from coming inside is to seal your home, clean out places where mice like to nest and remove their food sources.

Contrary to popular belief, getting rid of mice doesn’t cost a little fortune.  The method below is time-tested, cheap, and extremely effective. All you need is a bag of this tea!

Peppermint tea is a herbal tea made from an infusion of peppermint (Mentha piperita). It is sometimes called mint tea. It is caffeine-free. A tea made from blending peppermint and spearmint (Mentha spicata) leaves is referred to as Doublemint tea.

Prepare peppermint tea and leave the bag in the room. In fact, you`ll need about three per room or any other area you believe that there are mice or spiders. As unbelievable as it seems, after trying this trick you will never see any of these nasty creatures again.

Algumas verdades

Cuando acudimos a un spa o salón de belleza hay aspectos inenarrables que nos pasan totalmente inadvertidos. Algunas personas que trabajan en estos lugares nos han confesado las verdades no tan agradables que hay detrás del servicio, los productos y la limpieza que imperan en ellos.

Las profesionales de la cosmética saben lo difícil que es mantener a un cliente contento. Además de las complicaciones que se presentan al atender a tanta gente, y más en temporada alta. No es que todos los lugares hagan lo mismo, pero es un hecho que detrás de algunos existen ciertos sucios secretos.



  1. “Llevo dos años trabajando en el mismo spa, siempre me han dicho que sea muy cuidadosa con el aceite, pues las toallas no se cambian más de dos veces por día“.

2. “En el salón de belleza donde trabajo, rellenamos los productos buenos con genéricos. No estoy de acuerdo con este tipo de práctica, pero tal parece que las clientas nunca notan la diferencia”.

3. “Dar tantos masajes al día es bastante doloroso. A veces ni siquiera damos masajes completos, si logras dormir bien al cliente no hace falta que le imprimas demasiado esfuerzo”.

4. “En el salón de belleza hay clientas muy lindas y otras que digamos son indeseables. Me tocó una mujer realmente gritona a la que le molestaba todo lo que yo hacía. Entonces, no dudé en  cortar un poco de más su cabello. Finalmente crece de nuevo, ¿no es así?


5. “En donde trabajo hay una cabina de sauna. La primera vez que di un tratamiento de esos no sabía cómo funcionaba la máquina, así que improvisé y metí a mis clientas adentro esperando que no se cocinaran dentro de la horrible máquina con mil botones”.

6. “A veces los clientes no saben a qué tipo de spa están yendo. Lo peor que me ha pasado es entrar y encontrar a dos de mis clientes al natural sobre las camillas. No tengo idea cuál fue su confusión si dejamos los desechables encima de las camilla. Tuve que pedirles que se pusieran los calzones desechables para darles el servicio”.


7. “Hay personas muy extrañas en este mundo. Una vez llegó una señora que quería unpedicure y le pedí que se acomodara mientras le preparaba un café. Cuando regresé a atenderla, vi que sus uñas estaban plagadas de hongos. Por ética profesional no pude atenderla. Me dio mucha pena y se fue muy decepcionada”.

8. “Trabajo desde hace muchos años en varios spa, lo que puede dañar todo mi día son los clientes demasiado jóvenes. Soy una mujer mayor y no me jacto de ser la belleza andando; sin embargo, suele pasar que a algunos de mis clientes se les despierte la pasión… ¿Saben de lo que estoy hablando? Procuro hacer caso omiso de lo que les pasa, finalmente siempre puedo dar por terminada la sesión saliendo de la cabina”.

Todos los trabajos tienen sus secretos, pero sin duda estos son muy desagradables. 

My Mom Told Me Vinegar Was Useful. But I Never Imagined That It Could Do THIS… Incredible!

Vinegar! Just saying the word makes me pucker my mouth. While some people may shy away from the stuff, I have to admit that I do love me some vinegar with my french fries. But when vinegar isn’t doing its duty trying to add some sourness to a dish, this incredible ingredient can be used in many different ways that will no doubt surprise you. You see, white vinegar is created by fermenting ethanol with acetic acid bacteria to create the acetic acid that is then mixed with some water. Super simple but also super versatile! And of course, there are other types of vinegar such as apple cider vinegar, and you better believe that it’s super versatile as well! So what can you do with these common humble ingredients?

Well, thanks to YouTuber HouseholdHacker, we have a video of 10 awesome ways that vinegar can make your life easier (and impress your friends!).

Some of these vinegar life hacks include…

Unclogging a drain
Pour about half a cup of baking soda down the drain and then follow it up with a cup of vinegar. Once it stops foaming, wash it all down with some hot water.

Remove sticky residues
If you have sticky residues that refuse to come off your walls, saturate the area with some vinegar and let it sit for a few seconds before wiping it off.

Get rid of wrinkles in your clothes
Hang your clothes and spray it with a solution of one part vinegar with three parts water. Let it hang for a few minutes and the wrinkles should flatten out.

Watch the video below for the full details and more great tips and tricks! There’s sure to be something that you can use in your life and help you save some cash. I don’t know how these folks figure out these tricks but I’m certainly glad that they did.

Golfinhos nadar passado janela do meu quarto

On June 25th I looked out my bedroom window and to my surprise I saw what appeared to be dolphins swimming upriver in Youghal harbour, they traveled 700/800 metres before turning around and swimming back out to the Atlantic ocean .There has been a rapid growth in dolphin watching in Ireland during the past decade. The most frequently sighted species is the Short-beaked Common Dolphin and the Bottlenose Dolphin. These are resident around Ireland and may be seen all year round off the south and west coast. During 1994 a new species of dolphin was created by splitting the Common Dolphin into the short-beaked and long-beaked species. These two species exhibit distinct morphological differences in pattern, shape and geographical range but they do overlap in tropical waters. These dolphins travel in groups of 5-6 up to several hundred throughout the range in which we observe them. They are boat friendly and acrobatic making them a popular sighting amongst the many visitors who come dolphin watching with Whale Watch West Cork in Ireland. In addition to the resident populations of Common Dolphins and Bottlenose Dolphins there are chance sightings of other dolphin species during our dolphin watching tours. This includes Risso’s Dolphins and the two largest members of the dolphin family, Killer Whales (Orca) and Long-finned Pilot Whales. More rarely there are sightings of other oceanic dolphins such as the Atlantic White-sided Dolphin and the White-beaked Dolphin but they more usually favour the deeper waters of the Eastern Atlantic at the edge of the continental shelf. These later two species are frequently referred to as “lag dolphins” which is derived from the generic Latin name for the animals,Lagenorhynchus.
