A comforter for you

Christmas is right around the corner and you know what that means. Yep, it is getting freaking cold again. An ordinary blanket is far from enough to keep you warm and cozy. What you need is a comforter, a stronger version of a blanket. In this article, we will explain briefly to you what a comforter is and some information you need to look for when buying one.

First of all what is a comforter

A comforter is, in layman term, a thicker and bigger blanket. A blanket is used for keeping you warm in an ordinary cold while a comforter is used for the same purpose but in freezing season. Filled with material that is guaranteed to keep you warm and cozy even in the most extreme weather such as goose and duck feather or synthetic material, this object is also known as a heat insulator. That should give you a basic image of the object we are talking about.

Next, we are going to delve into the things you need to look out for when buying one.

1/ The down or the fill type

There are three main down types for a comforter. You can go with poultry fur or artificial material. Poultry fur is much more effective in keeping you warm and of course, more expensive as well. As for artificial material, it is not as effective in keeping you cozy but it is a perfect choice for you if you are allergic to poultry. Take these two factors into consideration and buy accordingly. If you decide to go for goose filling, there are no difference in performance between black and white feathers, they are just different in appearance.

2/ The fill power

This simply means the amount of filling per ounce. In other words, how much down material you can fit in a specific area of the comforter in order for it to weight one pound. More down filling means fluffier comforter and, again, more money coming out of your pocket. Decide if the increase in fluffiness is worth taking the extra mile or, in this case, the extra buck out of your budget and act on it.

3/ Your sleeping habit

The comforter you choose should match how you dress when you go to sleep. If you prefer wearing light pajama, then buy a comforter with high filling power (600 and above). If you like wearing heavy pajama better, buy one with low filling power (500 and below) so that you don’t get hot and stuffy rolling in it.

4/ Storing

Because of its properties, you will only use a comforter in a freezing cold season. During the hot season, you need to store it away properly so as not to shorten its life span. Put it in a ventilated bag and store in airy place so as not to trap moisture inside, preventing the build-up of mildew.

Healthy garden tips

Healthy gardenThe garden, a small area of the house and albeit being small, this area alone can make your house more lively if the right techniques are used. But what are the right techniques and the right way of applying them? That is exactly what we are going to show you today. In this article, we will show you the little tips and tricks that turn your garden into a sight for sore eyes.

1/ Trimming regularly

Cut off dead leaves and wilted branches as they will make your plants look ugly and less lively. They can still suck out the nutrition of your plants even though they serve no purpose whatsoever, kind of like a parasite. Without them out of the way, the plant can allocate its nutrition to the other branches, increasing the growing speed of the plant. Another benefits of this kind of activity is that it also hinders the growth of mosquitos and other harmful by destroying their home and feeding ground, leading to the healthy state of your plants.

2/ Lots of lights

LOTS OF LIGHTSPhotosynthesis is the main metabolism process of plants sort of like respiration is to us. This process of producing oxygen of plants cannot happen without sunlight, so, as common sense, you should place your plants where the sun shines the most. Doing so, the photosynthesis of plants will be facilitated and enhance, leading to the increase of chlorophyll production, which, in turns, makes you plants healthier and purify the atmosphere of the house.

3/ Good soil

Soil is to plant as home is to use. We need a good home in order to develop and so is the plant. You can tell if the home is good by simply looking at it but how can you do the same with soil? You do that by holding the soil in your palm, if it feels porous, then it is good, as simple as that

4/ Plant pots positioning.

The positioning of pots can play a critical role on the health of your individual plants and the overall health of the entire garden. You should arrange them in a way that every plants can receive an equal amount of sunlight so that they have an equal opportunity to develop. The sensible way to do so is to put smaller plants nearest to the sun and the taller ones behind them. With that way of arranging, the taller plants will not block sunlight of the smaller ones, hindering their growth

5/ Tools.

For each job, there is a specific set of tools in order to get the job done efficiently and effectively. You should equip yourself with a proper toolset so as to take care of your own “green paradise” much better. Take the size of your garden into consideration when buying and you will have a better idea of what to purchase.
