Do-It-Yourself Mom

As a stay at home mom, it is an advantage to have some do-it-yourself skill. Many of the little things that needs to be fixed at home like changing the light bulb, hanging a picture frame on the wall, fixing a clogged sink, etc don't have to be done by a service man.

First of all, it saves you time. Why wait when you can do it yourself? Second, you save some cash. You don't have to pay somebody else to do it if you can do it yourself, right?

All it takes is having the right knowledge about a certain task. You can read about it or ask someone who knows how to do it. Don't do the mistake of presuming you know how to do it. Ask first to avoid accidents or unwanted results.

Another thing to consider is having the right tools. If you have on hand the right tools to go about the task, what's stopping you from doing it yourself. And talking about tools, here is a new tool called the HammeRule - a combination of a hammer and ruler - thought of to be a useful tool. Care to share your thoughts on this new tool in this Conversation sponsored by dNeero?

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice.

When we came back to the Philipines, I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working.  Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time.

We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

My PureIt Excella Water Purifier Review

Last December, we bought a PureIt Excella water purifier at SM Megamall. After almost 7 months of using it, I can say that it was a good decision.

Why Buy a Water Purifier?

That is the primary reason I wanted to buy a water purifier. With a portable water purifier at home, I don’t have to ask my husband or my sons to buy mineral or filtered water at nearby water vendors. I know there are free home delivery services, but I think having our own water filter is still the most convenient. No calling. No waiting. No hassle.

The only question is which brand of water purifier should we buy? It’s a good thing we discovered …
