Do It And How

Hi Everyone!  Since it’s starting to get cold out, I thought I share some chilly weather tips!  These are all tips I learned this week so maybe they’ll be some new info for you as well.

–  Apparently, you are not supposed to leave your hose hooked up to the valve over the winter.  Didn’t know that!  The reason for this is that there could still be water in the hole that could freeze all the way back to the valve which could cause the whole thing to basically burst.  (same kind of deal with pipes freezing… I didn’t think of this outdoor flexible pipe!)  So, let your hose come in and hibernate for the winter while you give that out door faucet some time for its left over water drip out completely. 


– Another great use for vinegar!  I’ve learned through my research for other Tuesday Tips that vinegar is like the miracle solution.  There are HUNDREDS of things for which vinegar can be used.  One tip I came across tells us that vinegar can be used to prevent frost on the windshield!  That is so awesome!  I can’t wait to try it out! (Okay, I can wait, because I hate it when it gets frosty out and you have to scrape down your car… but maybe this tip will prove to be awesome and will alleviate some of my hatred toward winter travel)  So, if you would like to try this out on your own, all you have to do is mix 3 parts vinegar to 1 part water and apply it to your windshield.  It will prevent the frosting that we’re so used to.  (Thanks Frugal Dad!)


–  I’ve also read this week that fall is a good time to start trying to get in shape?  Why?  Because then by the time Christmas and New Year’s Eve roll around with all their food, drinks, and partying, you will already be in the habit of doing good things for your body and will be less likely to relapse into your old less good ways of eating and being lazy.  And, when it’s time to make that new year’s resolution, you’ll already be well on your way to that “getting in better shape” goal for the new year.
