Natural carpet cleaning


It doesn’t matter how hard you try, you can’t prevent your carpet from getting dirty. You want to keep the carpets looking nice, and don't want to worry about all the living that goes on in your living room!

Keeping the carpet in your home clean and stain free is a challenge, especially if you have any combination of heavy traffic, children and/or pets.

Natural carpet cleaning methods are easy once you have a few simple tools and the right formulas.

Use your vacuum first!

The best first step in proper maintenance is frequent vacuuming, which removes deeply embedded dirt, sand and particles which will split and wear out the carpet fibers.

Carpet experts recommend vacuuming thoroughly every week to keep dirt and dust to a minimum. If you happen to be one of the lucky ones who don’t mind vacuuming, you’ve got it made! The rest of us just have to force ourselves to be disciplined and get the vacuum cleaner out regularly.

Carpet stain natural cleaner

One of the greatest challenges for pet owners is removing stains from pet “accidents” using natural carpet cleaning techniques and without using harsh chemicals. Pet urine has both acid and alkaline components which should be counteracted by using both baking soda and vinegar.

Try this formula for new stains.

Mix in a spray bottle. Blot accidents with dry towels, paper towels or even a baby diaper if you have one, and then spray, blot excess and let dry. Repeat, if needed, to eliminate odors.

Cut out the fabric pieces

For this project you'll need the following size fabric pieces:

  • One piece 14 1/2″ by 14 1/2″. The pillow form is 14 inches and the 1/2 inch is for the seam allowance.
  • 2 pieces 14 1/2″ by 11″.

Note that the pieces are almost the same size as the pillow form. You don't want to have a cover that is too large or it will be baggy.

When you have everythig ready, start sewing all the pieces making sure you are doing on the reverse side of the clothes and no on the actual use side.

How to get protection from electromagnetic fields

electromagnetic fields


Those of us who live in the cities are exposed to different types of energy – even if we can’t see it – they are everywhere, surrounding us and going through us 24/7; this energy comes from devices that generate electromagnetic fields that affect our health and are able to unleash carcinogenic cell due to radiation.

It is impossible to even think of depurating everything that surrounds us, unless we decide to move to away from civilization and go living in an isolated mountain. As that won’t happen, we need deal with it in the most healthy way possible; so we can escape from some effects caused by radiation such as: lack of focus, insomnia, headaches, tiredness, tachycardia, dizziness.

Though some of this advice might be insignificant at the beginning, I assure you you will notice an improvement quite soon and you won’t even remember how you lived before:

  • Take out all electronic devices you have in  your room, that would be idyllic! However, if you can’t (because of space) try to have them at least at one meter away from your bed.
  • Unplug electronic and electric devices whenever you are not using them (including wifi and bluetooth)
  • Use wireless telephones with the ECO-Dect function.
  • You table lamp will go better with bulbs that are not fluorescent or halogen.
  • If you use any home appliance, try to keep half a meter if it is small or a meter if it is big.
  • Put big pieces of quartz around, they will absorb that electromagnetic energy, you will notice it when you wash it.
  • Open the windows and let light and negative ions in.


A technological and innovative way to recycle paper

A technological and innovative way to recycle paper


Most people migh take it for granted, but recycling paper is one of the most beneficial things we can do for our environment, today I want to show you a ver innovative way to recycle paper.

On many cities there are free newspapers dispensers that allow the dissemination of news. Can you imagine a container with an LED display but to recycle paper? Green Technology or Green Tech is here to stay and this is a simple example of how to combine technological innovation with environmental care .

A technological and innovative way to recycle paper

In London, there are the ” Techno-pods ” or “green cubes” that are similar to newspaper dispensers, but equipped with low-energy LED screens which broadcasts news of all kinds: financial, political, economic, entertainment, commercial…these containers are designed to hold the role of the free press, recycling half-ton daily paper. Imagine how much paper can be recycled in a work week!

Throughout Square Mile are arranged 100 such green cubes, devised by the company Renew. LED screens, although they are very showy, use technology “adaptive brightness”, which reduces energy consumption by 40%.

The next step: expand the “Techno -pods” at airports, railway terminals and buses with WIFI connectivity options through these containers.

Technology to save our environment!
