Fill the sandwich bag half with vinegar and fasten it tightly around the shower head, immersing it fully in the vinegar and let it be for 12-24 hours according to how crusty the shower is. After that is done, get rid of the vinegar filled shower bag and let hot water run from the shower. Your shower will then run as good as new.
  • Repairing Scratches on Hardwood Floors: In order to get rid of scratches on hardwood floors, use a floor cleaner and protective finish to buff out these scratches. Clean the scratch with a damp cloth dipped in the hardwood cleaner and follow by repeating with a clean cloth to get rid of the hardwood cleaner. After this, let it dry and top it off with the protective finish.

Why hair grow white in early ages?


Had a bad day at school/college/university? Having problems in your personal life? The amount of work is more than you can handle? Any one of these or related situations can cause stress. Stress is one of the largest cause of origination of permanent diseases in your body. The amount of stress you take for something is directly proportional to the side effects of it on your health. Don’t take stress now after reading this! You are accelerating it.

Reasons of growth of White hair

Reasons of growth of White hair

Have you stood in front of the mirror and noticed some grey hair growth in your head? Do you think that this is because of your stress? Actually, it’s not that much related to stress.
It can be due to genes. Someone from your mother’s side or father’s side will have white hair at his/her early age and unfortunately that has been transferred to you. Don’t curse that person, now. It’s not his/her fault.
The other reason can be that you eat a lot of fried stuff. Believe it or not, fried stuff can cause your hair grow grey. That is the experience of most of the people who have suffered from this particular thing.

If you have grown some white hair/grey hair, what can you do about it? The answer is nothing can make it grow black again. The best you can do is to leave it as it is. Ofcourse if you are very much conscious about it, dying is always an option for you. But, hair should not be died at early ages, it can effect your hair when you will get old.
The best way is to take it out of your mind. I mean, just ignore it. Praise however you look like and whatever there is on you. Besides anything, you have grown one more color on yourself.

Stay happy!

Thinking Positive: The best way to avoid life disasters


First, let me tell you background of this story. It was a start of a new year. Appraisals and Promotions are being discussed everywhere in the company I work for. I was happy. There was nothing stressful in my life. I used to do another part-time job to increase my monthly budget so that I could live easily.

And then one day, probably Monday, I woke up. I finished my chores and started getting ready to go to work. On my way to work, I got an accident. I was injured and I got depressed because of that accident. Although it was not so worse but it still made me think negative about some days ahead. I reached office. I was there and then , someone from the place where I work part-time, called me and told me that my services are no longer required by them. It made me more depressed. I was getting negative thoughts regarding my future days. Then, after some time , my senior at work told me that appraisals are not being sent due to some issue. May be, the company will not send it this year. I was shocked when I heard that. I was under so much pressure. I became pessimist. Anyhow, whatever I did that day, turned bad for me.

I came back home. I finished everything and went to bed. I lied down. Then I started thinking about what happened today. I realized something. Something that made my eyes open. I analyzed the whole situation and the conclusion that I got was so helpful ( I will tell you later , how?). All that bad things that happened today was because my thoughts became negative. My mind was not thinking positive. When I first got depressed, it attracted negative vibe and then, that negative vibe attracted more negative energy and the second bad incident happened and it went on.

After realizing that my thinking became so negative, I closed my eyes. I imagined that my brain was rusted. In my imagination , I started cleaning my brain . I cleaned and cleaned until all the rust went off. And then I started imagining the positive outcome of every situation.

The very next day , I started my day in normal routine. When I got back to office, they told me that appraisals are on their way. I found an alternative for my part-time job. And I recovered from the injuries faster than expected. In short, everything went right.

The conclusion here is that the life treats you as how you think it will. Positive thinking can really make you live in peace. The mission should not be “to survive”. The mission should be “to live”. Don’t let a bad incident or a bad thought carry you away. Even if something worse happens, just relax. Calm down. There is still something positive in it. Think about it. Block all the dark energies. Do not let them prevail you.

Life is peaceful

Whenever you want to achieve something, you face hurdles. If you hesitate in facing them, you will probably be not achieving your goal. There are certain factors that you will have to consider while achieving your goal.

One of the main factors is FEAR. Fear lets you get far away from your goal. You can’t achieve them with a fear in your mind. Get that fear out. Leave everything behind and try to reach your goal with as much effort as you can do.

Another main factor is the people. When you try to achieve your goal. There are people standing at every point criticizing you, teasing you and trying to make you aimless.

So, All you have to do is ignore them. People keep interfering in your life and you don’t have to answer all of that crap. Focus on what you want not what people say. If you ask those people to help you out, they will not do that because they are there only to disappoint you.

Electronic Garbage: Another Point to Ponder


Electronics has, not doubt, facilitated our living style. It has provided us luxury that we never have gotten without it. Today, we can go from one place to another within hours and minutes, no matter how much long distance there’s between both of those places. We can connect to the whole world and talk to anyone living anywhere with the help of your cellphones and laptops. Yes! Thank You Electronics! Thank you Mr. Capacitor, Mr. Resistor and others. Without you guys, this couldn’t have been possible.

Electronics

Ok! That’s enough for Electronics good side. Let’s take a look at its bad side that is not in the eyes and minds of millions of people who are not using electronics. You know there are millions of people around the globe who are using Electronic devices. Well, if something is used, it will end someday. And when electronic devices end up – What do you think where they go? Fly away?

For your information, 2,440,000 tons of electronics waste is produced in United States only and only 27% of it is recycled. Where does the other 72% go? It’s dumped or it’s thrown in sea. According to some rumors, I have also heard that this waste will be disposed off in Space, too. Well! Well! Well! Look here what we are dealing with?

Electronics Waste

Well, I must say that we all should have to find a solution to dispose off this waste properly. Otherwise, it’s going to be one of the next biggest problems in the near future.
