5 reasons you should use a bidet or a washlet

 

When it comes to bidets or washlets, most people tend to believe that these bathroom items are solely for the rich and famous. Don’t fall into that trap because nowadays it has gotten to a point where everyone wants a bidet in their house and these products aren’t pricey at all.

I am a person that likes to have the bathroom and its bodily parts spotless clean. If you understand my obsession, you’ll cope with me when I say that you’ll desperately desire a bidet after reading this piece.

Bidets are wonderful devices that can change your life for good. The only difference between a washlet and a bidet is that the first one requires an additional item placed near the toilet. The second one, the washlet, can be installed on your bathroom toilet. But in the end, they work on the same principle. Here you have my top reasons why you should use a bidet or a washlet, immediately.

  1. Hygiene

I tend to use the laptop or the tablet a lot. It’s like they are extensions of my both hands. Each time I feel the imperious urge to use the restroom, I wash my hands with water and soap and only then proceed to my real intentions. Our bottom and more are sensitive areas, quite prone to germs and bacteria growth. How would you feel if you used only toilet paper for cleaning your hands? The same rule applies to other areas of your body. A bidet might help you maintain your best hygiene and prevent health issues that toilet paper alone can’t manage to prevent.

 

  1. Toilet clogging

If you decide to use a bidet or even a washlet, you might see an improvement in terms of less toilet paper usage. Toilets get clogged especially if your house is not connected to the town’s sewer system or if the system is old and doesn’t respond anymore to the population’s needs. Because you have a limit on the septic tank you won’t need to empty it so often. Reducing the quantity of toilet paper you significantly reduce your spendings.

 

  1. Health issues

I know a lot of people that complain of digestive health problems such as hemorrhoids or constipation. Although they don’t seem like crucial problems, it affects your entire well-being and overall body capacity. If you choose to invest in the best washlet with integrated toilet, you benefit from a specially designed nozzle tip that ensures the water is sent inside you so it cleanses and helps you flush the system inside out.

If you suffer from hemorrhoids, toilet paper is your worst enemy because it is too abrasive and might worsen your situation.

  1. Good example for the kids

As a parent, you want to teach your children the importance of good personal hygiene. So, it’s quite a big deal having a good reminder in the bathroom that tells them to wash their bottom after every use.

 

  1.  Say goodbye to toilet paper

Living expenses for a large family are thought to handle. You need to cut down the useless things and focus only on the important ones. Since toilet paper is quite pricey, think of the amount of money you save if you get a bidet or a wallet that gives you better results faster and easier.

 

 

 

 

How to keep your home smelling nice

As a pet owner, you can imagine that one of my concerns is cleaning the floors and upholstery in my home, and the other is keeping my working and living environment smelling nice. I am a cat person mostly because some dogs tend to have bad breath or their skin develops rashes and all sorts of other mishaps that might turn them into smelly little things.

I’m not saying that dogs are bad. I’m just aware of the complications that might ensue because of them so I try to keep things real. Over the years, I have used several tips and tricks to make my home smell amazing, and I would like to share them with you today.

I have two candles that I use. One of them is in the main bathroom and the other is in the living room. Each time I know that somebody’s going to pop by for a visit, I light them. You can do the same or you can simply not light them and place them between your linens.

Another suggestion that I have for you is to open your windows wide to let the sun and fresh air come into your home. I usually do this in the morning before going to work and I try to do some breathing exercises, as well. If you’re lucky enough to have a backyard, maybe you have taken the time to plant some trees or lavender.

 

If you have some time at your disposal, it’s a good idea to get cooking. I like to bake cookies once in a while, and their smell is better than the most expensive perfume in the world. Change your sheets as often as possible. I take it that some people do this every month, but I like to do it every week or every other week.

Normally, I would tell you to buy some Febreeze or any other freshener of this sort. However, I’ve noticed that you can do the same with a bit of water, fresh lemon juice, and some essential oils. I like using lavender oil because I love its smell, but you can create your personal air freshener and add any scent you want. This way, the smell won’t be overbearing as you will be able to control the amount of essential oil that you will use.

In the end, I’d like to point out that nothing smells better than a clean environment. They say cleanliness is godliness and I couldn’t agree more. Make sure to wash your clothes and linens on a regular basis. You’ll be smelling nice and your home will, too. You’ll also make an impression, whether you want a new job or meet somebody new.

 

 

5 organization and productivity tips

 

When it comes to organizing and making the best of the time they’ve got, most people usually find it difficult. And, if we are all honest with ourselves, the reason is quite clear; postponing a certain task is easier than actually doing it. However, I believe that in recent times, given the hectic pace we live our lives in, finding ways of organizing ourselves and being productive has become a goal we all strive for. Therefore, in this blog entry, I decided to share with you my top 5 organization and productivity tips.

  1.    Work areas vs. non-work areas

One thing I always find important before completing a task is finding a place that I can concentrate in. Many were the times when I felt like no matter where I went, my ability to concentrate was nowhere to be found!  As time has passed, I realized that the best way of being productive is to differentiate between what I like to call work areas and non-work areas. As the titles I’ve given the two are self-explanatory, I feel obliged to point out to you that researchers have discovered that we usually perform better when we cut ourselves from external potential distractions and feel like we are in our own zone may that be the desk or, in my case, my bed.

 

  1.    Supplies

Before starting to work make sure you’ve got all you need.  As you’ve surely experienced it in the past, one of the commonly used excuses we make when we are working is that we can’t do it because we are missing something. So, my advice to you is to check twice and make sure nothing was left out so that you won’t have to leave your work area and get distracted by something else before completing your work task.

 

  1.    Take regular breaks

Oh, the long-awaited breaks! We all know that the recipe for success includes taking breaks. However, as scientists’ latest studies show, we might’ve been sabotaging ourselves by not taking breaks the way we should.  Studies show that one should organize their task so that regular time offs are taken. For example, for beginners, taking a small break every 20 minutes and a bigger one after an hour has been shown to increase productivity and ability to concentrate.

  1.    Hydrate

Although not per se a productivity tip, drinking enough liquids is a must when one wants to be productive. Moreover, keeping your body hydrated ensures your mind’s optimal ability to focus.

 

  1.    Napping

Yes, you’ve heard me right. Studies have suggested that, for those who want to get stuff done but haven’t got enough sleep the previous night, a power nap of about 30 minutes might be the needed fix.  The 25 to 30 minutes nap has been proven good not only for overall comfort but also as a way of improving productivity and creativity.

 

 

How to get rid of pet hair

 

As all pet owners can testify, a pet is both a blessing and a curse. And, the reason why I’m saying that is pet hair! If you have settled for a furry friend, chances are, you have gone through the hardships of removing unwanted (pet) hair, a struggle I believe quite difficult for the `beginners` in the field. And, because lately, I had to deal with this issue myself, I started surfing the web in search for the best strategy to have a hair-free home. As a result, after surfing the web and testing the suggestions found online, I have decided to put together this short list that contains what I consider to be the go-to guide to cleaning when living with a pet.

First things first, to be sure you don’t carry pet hair on your clothes when out of the house; I suggest you buy a couple of lint rollers and keep them around your home. Moreover, to make sure you don’t risk forgetting to use them before leaving, keep one near the exit door, as it will act as a reminder to give yourself the last touch up.

 

Secondly, a good idea is to invest in an electric broom. More easy to use and practical than the usual vacuum cleaner, this type of cord-free device is just what you need. Capable of aspirating unwanted hair and debris produced by pets, the gadget is ideal as it will not just blow the hair around but actually suck it. As a plus, the models equipped with a HEPA filter are also able of actually cleaning the air in the room, in a thorough fashion. If you want to buy such a cleaning device, here you can find more information.

 

Thirdly, any pet owner should reserve time to regularly clean the unwanted hair from the furniture. To remove this type of tricky debris, I suggest you mix up and spray water and your favorite fabric softener or any type of specialized cleaning solution on the furniture and gently wipe it off.

Last but not least, in order to avoid having your home filled with pet hair, you should take care of the pets themselves. Therefore, be sure to brush them at least two times a week and don’t forget to take them to the pet salon and get them a groom or be sure to give them a trim yourself when the hot season is approaching; less hair, less time spent cleaning it!

 

By following the suggestions I talked about, I am sure you will find living with your fairy friend not only easier but also more enjoyable. Anyways, I hope my tips and tricks will be of help. Let me know about how you deal with this issue and what solutions you found to be effective when dealing with pet hair.
