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

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

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
