Uncommon Uses of Common Things....Disposable Diapers


  By Shabnamahsan


In continuation of my series of uncommon uses of common thing today I am writing few uncommon uses of disposable diapers.

                           If your kids are too big for diapers & you are confused what to do with some unused one, here are some interesting uses.

Diaper cake

Are you going to attend a baby shower? Use your diapers to make a cute diaper cake. Tie around lovely ribbon, attach some small toys & your pretty baby shower gift is ready.

Emergency Kit

Keep in glove compartment in your car for emergencies. It’ll serve as great blood absorber if accident occurs. 

Keeps Flower Fresh Longer

If you have to carry flowers & concerned about spilling during transporting, just wet the inside of a disposable diaper & wrap around the flower. Your flowers will get all the necessary moisture & won't get dry without any mess. When you reach your destination put it in a beautiful vase, off course without diaper. If it's for your loved one, just remember to discard diaper before giving it otherwise......

Convenient Iced or Hot Pack

If you get hurt or having pain anywhere in your body, you can use it as hot or iced pack. For hot pack, wet the inside of the disposable diaper & microwave it on medium heat until it's hot enough for you to bear on your skin.

For cold pack, dribble one cup alcohol in diaper than soak it in water. Now pack it & freeze it. Sodium Polyacrylate in diaper will transfer the liquids in gel & alcohol will keep it from completely freezing. Even if you don't have alcohol use plain water and freeze. Outer cover of the diaper will prevent water from dipping when using on the aching part of your body.

Choose Your Footwear With Care

By Shabnam Ahsan
Fashion experts consider footwear as an essential part of accessories.It enhances or mar your overall appearance. But most of us ignore a very important aspect while selecting our footwear, ie. comfort of feet. We can save our self of a lot of pains & problems if we consider some simple points in choosing our footwear

1…The right time to shop the shoe is in the late afternoon as our feet expand a bit during the day. Curb the urge to bay it in the morning as these may turn out to be tight

2…Always take a walk round the shop a couple of minutes with shoes on before buying them. As you walk in the shop weaning new shoes keep these questions in mind:

Can I wiggle my toes? If you can’t the shoes are too tight

Does the ball of my foot rests comfortably on the scale of the shoe? If it doesn’t it's not the right shoe.

Do the sizes & the back of the shoes fit snugly? If they don’t and there are gaps, the shoes are too large

Only when you are fully satisfied, you should buy the pair of shoes

7 Tips For Perfect Candle Burning

By shabnam Ahsan

Burning candles is fun. We can light a candle at any time, any place or any occasion. Be it a candle light dinner, a relaxing evening or even in bathroom we can light candles in different colors & shapes & in beautiful holders.

Here is some tips to prolong the fun experience of lightening candles

1…It’s a good idea to keep candles in fridge as cold candles burns slowly or you can put it in fridge an hour prior to light it but to prevent wicks from absorbing moisture wrap them in foil or cling-film first.

2…To avoid the bending or fading the color of the candles never expose them to sunlight or internal spotlight

3… Wrap cooking foil or tissue paper around the bottom of the candle to make the base thicker if it’s too slim to fit perfectly in the holder. The melted wax will soak the tissue & prevent it from burning.

Fresh flowers can freshen up any dull room, & make your day as they express someone’s emotions for you. But the life of fresh flowers is generally short & they are easily perishable. Here are some tips to keep them fresh longer.
1…When you buy flowers try to buy most of them still in bud. They will have longer vase life & you will get the pleasure of watching them slowly open up.
2…Crush and split the bottom of the woody steamed flowers like Rose to take up water easily.
3…. Always cut rose’s stem holding it & sharp scissor under water like water filled sink or a big vessel to prevent getting an air bubble in the stem which can cause the rose heads to drop.
4…To lengthen the life of flowers snap their stems on a slant with a sharp knife to expose more stem surface & wash away the sticky white secretion.
5… Cut the stems another inch or so whenever you change the water. In this way by the end of the week, you will have shorter, but still alive bouquet
6… If you want to extend the life of your flower arrangement than put it in the coldest room of your house before going to sleep.
