I thought this was interesting but I don’t want to make you think twice the next time someone blows the candles out on a birthday cake - but you might just want to think twice before eating a piece of birthday cake after reading this.

Here is an abstract done by the Journal of Food Research:

"This study examined the potential spread of bacteria when blowing out candles on a birthday cake. Preliminary tests of blowing on nutrient agar indicated that bioaerosols in human breath expelled from the mouth may be a source of bacteria transferred to cake surfaces.

To test aerosol transfer to cake, icing was spread evenly over foil then birthday candles were placed through the foil into a Styrofoam™ base. After consuming pizza, test subjects were asked to extinguish the candles by blowing. Icing samples were sterilely recovered then surface plated, to determine the level of bacterial contamination.

Blowing out the candles over the icing surface resulted in 1400% more bacteria compared to icing not blown on. Due to the transfer of oral bacteria to icing by blowing out birthday candles, the transfer of bacteria and other microorganisms from the respiratory tract of a person blowing out candles to food consumed by others is likely."

Here’s the link to the abstract. From this page, you can also view the full text in PDF format:

Using a planner can be an effective way to help get your busy life organized. If used properly and on a regular basis you can become more organized.

You need to establish a daily and weekly routine when using your planner. If you review your planner at some point each evening, it will only take a short time to check off the completed tasks and to look at the tasks you have scheduled for the next day.

When you review your planner weekly, this gives you the opportunity to make any changes necessary to your calendars, to do lists, update grocery coupons, copy any notes from your phone into the planner, etc.

Keeping a planner can be fun and if you’re new to this type of thing to keep you organized, don’t feel like you have to have it completely filled right away, an empty space might mean you have some free time!

If you live in a small space of if you are looking for space to put things, have you thought about using hanging wire baskets? Hanging wire baskets fit just about any door and can be used in pretty much any room of the house.

In the garage for instance, you can put rags, tape, tape measurer and other things that are regularly used and need easy access.

You can use them for jewelry, bathroom products, kitchen stuff and much more. So, if you need a little extra storage, don’t forget to utilize closet doors, cabinet doors and even the towel rack in the bathroom.

How to Treat and Wash a Variety of Stains from Sport Jerseys

There are many of us who have kids involved in playing sports. I can remember sitting and watching my kids in the rain, snow and the heat of summer. I may not have enjoyed some of the weather conditions that came our way, but I had a blast watching my kids have fun!

If your kids play sports, any age group, they will be coming home with stains on their jersey and that’s something you can almost always guarantee. Doesn’t matter if it’s a grass stain, mud, blood or a perspiration stain – it’s there.

I know you probably don’t want to be one of those nitpicky parents that insist clothes come off as soon as your kids walk through the door, and you don’t have to, but the sooner you get to the stain, the better the chances are for a nice looking, clean jersey the next time they wear it.

Creative Storage Options and Tips for Organizing the Garage

How many of you are planning to clean the garage on one of these rare sunny days we’ve been seeing so little of lately?

I know it’s on my list of things-to-do with all my estate sale finds piling up and the items I’ve been using to refinish some of those pieces.

Anyway, it got me thinking about creative storage options to repurpose some of the “junk” I was going to toss.

1. If you have a two or four drawer letter sized file cabinet that is not being used and just taking up space, why not paint it and use it for yard and garden tool storage.

After painting place the backside on the floor and now you have two or four storage cubbies for rakes, brooms, shovels, etc. Put castors on the bottom and when you rearrange, it’s easy to move around.

2. How about rain gutters. Not many of us have these laying around but if getting your gutters repaired or replaced – these can be used as storage for seeds, gloves, paint, stains, tape, glue, nails and so much more.

These are just a couple of ideas for creative storage options, do you have other ideas? Something you want to try or are already implementing – let’s hear your ideas.
