SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF A BED BUG BITE The most tell tale sign of a bed bug problem isn't the bed bug's bite. As the United States Environmental Protection Agency points out: "Bites on the skin are a poor indicator of a bed bug infestation. Bed bug bites can look like bites from other insects (such as mosquitoes or chiggers), rashes (such as eczema or fungal infections) or even hives. Some people do not react to bed bug bites at all." The percentage of people who do not react to bed bug bites is commonly stated as 70%, but a lengthy discussion as to why this is wrong rages on. The new evidence implies that "repeated exposure" to bed bug bites is the key to whether or not you react to the anesthetic in the bed bug's saliva. In other words, if you have bed bug bites, treatment requires more than just stopping the itching. You have to get rid of the infestation as well. LOOK FOR THESE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF A BED BUG BITE: 1. Raised, red welts 2. Burning and itching 3. Bed bug bite rash across localized area 4. Straight lines of multiple bites SUSPICIOUS BUGS CREEPING AROUND Despite the ongoing bed bug epidemic, many people still don't know what a bed bug even looks like. HOW TO TREAT BED BUG BITES You may see a dermatologist if you have multiple bites, blisters, oozing, pus or any other signs of a severe allergic reaction or infection. Otherwise, their recommended bed bug bite treatment is: 1. Wash the bites with soap and water. This will help prevent a skin infection and help reduce itchiness. If the bites itch, apply a corticosteroid cream to the bites. 2. You can get a weak form of this medicine without a prescription at your local drugstore. Stronger corticosteroids require a prescription." Unfortunately, learning how to get rid of bed bug bites involves much more than simply stopping the itch. Before your existing bites even begin to fade, new bites will appear as the infestation grows. To put an end to bed bug bites, treatment actually means eradicating the pests wherever they cower and hide. OR YOU MAY CALL ------- PEST CONTROL COMPANY / DIY

Continue post of 23 Jan --- how to choose a Perfect Bed Sheet Mix it up material ( man made ) If you prefer fuss-free bed linen, choose a man-made material such as a polycotton mix – a blend of synthetic polyester and natural cotton. Easycare polycotton is a great option for people with a busy life looking for bed linen that requires minimal care It’s comfortable to touch, dries quickly and requires little ironing, so it’s a great solution for families and works well on children’s beds. To make sure the bed linen you buy is good quality, look for a thread count of at least 180 to help guard against any wearing and pulling. Always choose the option with the larger cotton quantity, so you have a higher amount of natural fibres compared to man-made,’ ****************************************************** Fall in love with linen Linen is a great option in warmer climates: it’s breathable and great at drawing moisture away from the body. twice as durable as cotton. For the ultimate easy-care option, opt for a 100 percent pure-linen product. Linen looks at its best when it is creased and tousled, and it will only get better with every wash It’s the easiest option, with ironing completely optional. Linen can have a starchy finish and feel rough to the touch, so opting for pre-washed linen will ensure softness. However, not all linens are pre-washed as it does cost more, resulting in a pricier product. There are lots of wash treatments used, including stone wash and garment wash that have similar properties.’ These will also change the look, ‘especially on dyed colours’ Next post will be talking about SILK … have you EVER think of Silk bed sheet ??

Thaipusum in Batu Caves ( KL ) : • 1st Day : there is a procession along the streets of Kuala Lumpur led by a chariot that presents a statue of Lord Muragan. • 2nd Day : there is a long barefoot walk to the Batu Caves for the purpose of vow fulfilment. The walk to the Batu Caves is generally the most popular element of the celebration. During the pilgrimage, some devotees will carry large milk pots and ornate frames (kavadi). The kavadi are supported by a series of spikes that laterally pierce the skin of their chest and backs as a symbol of penance. Upon reaching the caves, devotees are greeted by a 42.7 m statue of Lord Muragan. They will then climb a large staircase into the limestone caves, where shrines awaiting offerings are enclosed in the caverns. On the MONTH leading up to the pilgrimage, • those who have decided to bear the KAVADI will have mainly subsisted on a heavily restricted DIET and completely fast on last few days before the pilgrimage; naturally, these extremes demand of very high level of mental and physical fortitude. Not all devotees who take the pilgrimage will pierce their skin with hooks; many will just opt to carry a pot of milk, which serves as a symbol of fertility and abundance in Hindu faith. Many Hindu devotees consider Thaipusam to be an expression of loyalty and allegiance between people and the deities. In a sense, it could be considered a form of thanksgiving to Lord Muragan for any prayers that he has answered. Traditionally, participants in the festival will offer Lord Muragan their gifts in the form of orange and yellow flowers and fruits while wearing similarly-coloured clothing. There are multiple offerings made to a great number of many different shrines, though the Batu Caves hold the most popular shrines of all. At Thaipusam, parades and rituals are held across the country, with devotees performing ceremonial acts at different locations – the most famous being at the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur where more than 1 million people gather on Thaipusam each year. Tourists flock to see the colours, noise and activities of Thaipusam.

When is time to CHANGE .......... Cutting boards When to toss: You can hold on to cutting boards indefinitely. Why: How you sanitize the board—and not its age—is what kills bugs such as E. coli and Salmonella. "The decision to replace one is ultimately based on when you think it looks too beat up," says Brenda Wilson, PhD, an associate professor of microbiology at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. Even a board with deep cracks or grooves is safe if it's sanitized after each use: Wash the board with detergent and hot water; then rinse and flood with a solution of 1 part full strength white vinegar to 4 parts water and let it sit for 5 minutes. Rinse with clean water, pat with a clean towel, and air dry. ************************************************************************************ Contact lens solution When to toss: Discard contact lens solution after 3 months. Why: "Once the seal is broken, germs can contaminate bottles that are left uncapped or that lack a backflow device, increasing your risk of infection," says Louise A. Sclafani, OD, an associate professor of ophthalmology at University of Chicago Hospital. Get a new case every 3 months, too. ************************************************************************************* Toothbrushes When to toss: Replace your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months. Why: The American Dental Association recommends a 3 to 4 month rotation because frayed and worn bristles don't clean as well leaving teeth more vulnerable to decay. (Your toothbrush isn't just for your teeth! Check out these 10 genius beauty uses.) *************************************************************************************** Eye makeup When to toss: Throw away eye makeup 6 months after opening to prevent infection. Why: The applicators used to apply mascara, liner, and shadow are repeatedly exposed to bacteria in the air and on your lashes; after 6 months of everyday use, they can overpower the products' preservatives, says John Bailey, PhD, chief scientist at the Personal Care Products Council. Liquid products that don't touch the eyes, such as foundation, can be used for up to 2 years; dry face products like powder and lip items are generally formulated to last at least 3.

How Often we CHANGE ..... Air conditioners When to toss: Keep air conditioners until they die. Why: With proper maintenance, including annual servicing, a room or central air conditioner can easily run for up to 15 years, especially if you don't operate it year round, says Bill Harrison, president elect of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers. Check the filter at least every 6 weeks, particularly in humid weather. "If dirt covers the filter so you can't see the original material or view light through it, clean it or buy a new one," he says. (Not a fan of using your air conditioner? Fire extinguishers When to toss: Replace fire extinguishers every 10 years. Why: Portable extinguishers may lose pressure over time and become ineffective whether or not they've been triggered, says Lorraine Carli, national spokesperson for the National Fire Protection Association. If your extinguisher is rechargeable, have it serviced every 6 years or when the pressure is low. (Look for service companies in the Yellow Pages under fire extinguishers.) Water filters When to toss: Keep water filters 20% longer than normal. Why: "Filters that make health claims like lead removal are designed to provide a margin of safety in case they're not changed on time," says Rick Andrew, operations manager at NSF International, an Ann Arbor, MI based company that tests filters. (This applies to most drinking water purifiers ) Those equipped with expiration indicators (such as trigger lights) last 20% longer than their recommended life so a filter certified to clean 100 gallons actually purifies 120. Filters without an indictor last even longer, cleaning twice the number of gallons claimed.
