Preparing For Our Next Outdoor Camp

With the holiday season coming round the corner, we have planned to take our family to an outdoor camp. We had one last year and our little ones enjoyed it very much. They have been asking for a similar outing and we are too happy to oblige. We see it as a fun and healthy way of exposing them to more outdoor activities, instead of them spending most of their time with their tablets or electronic devices.

We are waiting to take some time off from our busy schedule to send our off road camper trailer to the workshop. We noticed a sign of rusting on some parts of the body of our camper trailer and it needed some touching up to contain and prevent the rust from spreading.

With constant and proper maintenance, our camper trailer will stay in good condition for us to enjoy for many more years to come. Since our kids are beginning to enjoy outdoor camps, we hope to have more similar camps. We may even consider doing outdoor camps at some nice camping sites such as traveling further away from home.

Meanwhile, we have been checking out some online websites for Jeep bumpers and comparing the prices from these websites. We are contemplating whether we should install a new one on our Jeep. We are also checking out online stores having sales promotion for Jeep bumpers, hoping to get a good bargain for the bumpers.

Aside from bumpers, we are also checking out some Jeep winches and Jeep accessories. We came across one tuff stuff website that is promoting sale for their camping gear, accessories and etc. There are a few items which we have bookmarked and we need to check out the prices before we decide on our orders.

We have also check out the reviews by their customers on this website and also on the products, and most of the reviews are very positive. Most important to take note is that the reviews on their customer service are also positive. This is a plus sign as we had some very negative experience with poor customer service provided by some online websites.

5 Areas Where Bugs Are Most Prevalent & How to Prevent Them From Entering Your Home

Recent research suggests there are areas in your home where bugs like to congregate. These areas are preferred over others either for the resources or convenience the location offers. Here is a look at the five places you’re most likely to find bugs in your home and how to deal with them. For a major infestation, it’s time to ask, “Where do I find pest control near me?”

  1. Under Your Carpets

Dust mites are the most common type of insect found in carpets, but many other tiny critters hide there. Some are there because they got stuck, so it’s less about how inviting your carpet is and more about it being similar to a spider’s web. Vacuum regularly to reduce the number of bugs in your carpet.

  1. In Your Common Rooms

It may not be surprising, but rooms, where people congregate, tend to be rooms where bugs are found. It could be because where a group of people gathers there is often food. Keeping these areas clean can reduce some of your pests, but if you notice any, it’s time to call for an Austin pest control service.

  1. Infesting Your Basement

Your basement is surrounded by concrete and dirt, and there are plenty of bugs living in the dirt. They’ll find their way in through cracks in the concrete or make their way down from the ground floor. If you rarely visit your basement, then it feels much safer to these critters. Regularly visiting and inspecting your basement can take care of some of these freeloaders.

  1. Near Your Doors and Windows

It could be because bugs are so small and don’t want to travel far once they’ve found a warm, safe place indoors, but near your windows and doors is a great place to look for bugs. To reduce the number of bugs in your home, you can double-check all your doors and windows. If there are any cracks or drafts, you may want to replace these items.

  1. Where the Snacks Are

Pests are driven by the need to survive, meaning they need shelter and food. Your home provides both, especially if you don’t store your food in airtight containers. Another consideration is whether someone in your home squirrels away snacks for later. These can be less protected and more inviting to pests.

Part of eliminating pests in your home is to know where they typically nest. Keep these areas clean and inspect them regularly for signs of unwanted guests.

Protect Your Style With GO!TECHS Waterproof Spray

Isn’t it a bummer when your outfit is on point then the weather decided to release all its rain on you? It’ll just ruin your style and mood. Yes, your umbrella and jacket can help but not with your shoes, especially when you’re the type of person who likes to wear white shoes all the time. We know when there’s rain, there’s mud. And we don’t want mud covering our shoes. I tell you this isn’t cool for me especially I am not a fan of washing my shoes.

The good news is that a waterproof spray made in Taiwan is now available in the Philippines to protect our shoes from the rain, mud and stains. GO!TECHS is the first chemical-oderless waterproof spray with fluorine which can form a barrier on the surface of the objects to protect againts penetration of any liquid, oil and stain effiviently without hurting the softness and breatability of materials. It also helps keep the object clean for longer and owns best effect on quick drying, waterproofing, antifouling, mildew proofing and dust proofing. Now, that’s a charm!

It is not only for our shoes, but also for clothes, bags and documents. I haven’t tried it on anything but my white shoes, and I can totally say it gave protection without compromise. And it’s easy to use. Make sure the material’s surface is cleaned and dry, and then spray it from a distance of 15-20 cm for 1-3 seconds. To avoid the slight color change on clothes after sprayed, spray it on unobvious parts first to make sure.
