Becoming a prepper is one of those things that requires you to develop a lot of skills. One of the most important skills is properly building and maintaining a fire. This is a skill that can make all the difference between life and death in many survival situations. Knowing how to properly build and maintain a fire is absolutely critical. You can learn more about building a fire at: http://patriotscloset.com/best-fire-starters-for-survival/

No Shame In Using Modern Tools

There can often seem to be a kind of hierarchy to preppers. There is a misconception that there are the “real preppers” and the ones who do not take it seriously enough. The “real prepper” will try and tell you that you are not a real prepper if you are not able to start a fire with just two sticks and will power. They will tell you only a wuss or incapable person would resort to using matches, lighters, or flint. These preppers are idiots. Would you rather spend up to an hour just trying to get your first spark or would you rather build a fire in less than fifteen minutes and conserve valuable time? It is not wise to rely entirely on lighters or matches, but a good piece of flint will not fail you and it is foolish to ignore convenience in a survival situation.

Maintaining Your Fire

It is one thing to get a fire started. However, it is an entirely different matter and completely critical for survival to keep a fire going. You need to remember that, as with most things in this world, there is a structure that must be maintained in order to keep your fire going. You need to be sure that your fire has enough airflow to keep the flames going without being too open that it goes out quickly. You need to be sure to have a steady supply of wood to feed into the fire. You also need to make sure you have wood that burns steadily.

Owning a home is a fantastic experience. It means that you have achieved a measure of true independence and no longer have to worry about renting. However, the trade off for that independence is that you have a lot more responsibilities in terms of ensuring that your home is a healthy and safe environment. One of the worst adversaries that you can come up against while trying to achieve that goal is black mold. Every year black mold does millions of dollars worth of damage to thousands of homes and it has a terrible effect on a person’s health. Here is how to find and get rid of black mold in your home.

Locating the Mold Dwelling In Your House

When you are dealing with mold one of the most important steps that has to be carried out is actually locating it. Mold begins its life as microscopic, which makes early detection next to impossible. However, there are some early tell-tale signs of mold’s presence. The most obvious sign will be a musty smell. This smell is instantly recognizable as something you will smell in an old basement or attic. Another tell-tale sign to look out for is splotchy discoloration on walls, around windows, or around anywhere else in your home that has moisture. This is because mold must have moisture in order to grow. If you suspect there to be mold growth in your home then you need to call in an expert from DamageControl-911.

What Mold Can Do To Your Health

Mold is an extremely toxic substance that should not be trifled with. If you even suspect that it is in your home you must deal with it quickly and decisively. This is because mold travels throughout your home by emitting microscopic spores. When these spores get into the air they are very easy to inhale by accident. When this happens you can develop some serious respiratory illnesses. There have even been people who have died as a result of mold exposure.

Here are some tips you can use to make your home mold free:

carbon fiber bike

This guy takes DIY to a whole other level. He designs in CAD, makes a 3d model and decided to use a 3d printer. The one he has is too small, so he designs his own and then uses his molds to make carbon fiber bikes.

Some look odd, some more sleek, but he plainly stated they are lighter and faster than much heavier bikes on the market and are fun and a pleasure to ride.

He is not alone. i made the jump to carbon fiber bikes about 2 years ago. I am no mountain biker, but I do love a nice and comfortable bike that handles well. The trick is finding the bike style that fit’s your needs. Comfort, speed, whatever your pleasure or challenge, they have some really cool bikes on the market these days.

Carbon fiber might be an option.

Are You Buying Authentic Egyptian Cotton Sheets?

Comments Off on Are You Buying Authentic Egyptian Cotton Sheets?


 

Nothing can make a consumer see red faster than buying a very high end product like Egyptian cotton sheets and then finding out you really didn’t get what you paid for. When things are all packaged up, it can be hard to tell what you are getting. The only way you can prevent getting ripped off is to read the labels very carefully and know what your are looking for.

First let’s look at what real Egyptian cotton is. ELS stands for extra long fibers. In a cotton plant this is essential to get a finer thread or yarn. Longer fibers means that there will be less splicing of fibers and that makes the threads finer and softer. While there is long fiber cotton that is grown in the United States, the climate in the Nile River Valley of Egypt provides the ideal moist environment to make the ELS cotton even softer.

What you want to make sure of when you are shopping for Egyptian cotton, sheets or other items like clothing or bath towels, is that the ELS cotton has not been mixed with an inferior cotton in the process. However, the products produced with this mixed cotton blend can still be labeled Egyptian cotton. Purchase these items and you are buying an inferior product and yet still pay a higher price. Make sure the products you buy have the official Egyptian cotton logo and read all of the product details carefully. Take the time to visit http://luxuryofpharaohs.com to find more valuable information about the Egyptian cotton you buy.

The reason people buy high end sheets for their bedding is because they want a more sumptuous feeling sheet while they sleep at night. While any fabric made with the ELS cotton is going to be soft and more durable than other shorter fiber cottons, there can also be a difference in the weave. You may have heard of sateen sheets or percale sheets, but never really understood what the differences are between the two types. Percale is the more simple over under, over under weave, while the sateen weave is a much more complex and produces a more satiny feel.

Longevity and durability is another reason many like to invest in higher end products like Egyptian cotton sheets. They will stand up to wash after wash and fluff fuller in the dryer than inferior cotton sheets. Keep in mind however that the fabric thread count can also play a big part in how long your sheets will last and how they will feel. Thread count means the number of threads per square inch in the weave of the fabric. Higher thread counts cost more of course. Sheets with a higher thread count are naturally heavier.
