1. Do not buy peeled garlic

Do not buy peeled garlic that is refrigerated in the grocery store. Peeled garlic has to be stored in the refrigerator, and because of humidity, it will contain molds easily. So, buy fresh garlic and keep it in a place that has good air circulation.

1. The Blackmail Method

Telling your family that you got pregnant (especially at a younger age) is an absolute nightmare for any female. The fear of raising a kid alone is like an axe hovering above your head. In this situation, if you’re looking for the support of your family but are too scared to tell them, there is a ‘blackmail’ method that can help you out.

1. Take Photos of Someone Wearing Jeans

Jeans look much better when they are worn. Find a person who can fit perfectly into those jeans and start taking photos from different angles. Your goal is to get details of buttons, stitching, patches, and pockets. Shoot plenty of photos of sitting in jeans on a hardwood floor, slouching on a tree, and lying in bed.

2. Throw it on grass

Place the jeans on fresh grass that is not wet. Shooting in the natural light is always better because the pictures are effortlessly bright and vibrant. Fold the jeans or…

1. Be Genuine

To call a girl cute, the first and most important point is to not be creepy. Secondly, your compliment should sound genuine and uniquely tailored for her to stand out. Avoid using a cheesy comment because chances are, she’ll think you’re a cheesy guy and definitely, your chances of going on a date will be reduced. Dig deeper and avoid going with comments such as nice, pretty, or beautiful. Notice her or talk to her and try to understand what is she passionate about, what makes her actually attractive. …

1. Let her know you’ve been thinking about her

Word of advice: Don’t just point-blank state this to her during your first interaction.

But yes, girls love being told that they have been on your mind. Perhaps she had recommended a new track that you heard and loved, or maybe you came across a track that reminded you of her. Share this with her and see how she reacts. It’s likely she will first smile and then appreciate that you were thinking about her.

2. No cheesy lines please

If you think cheesy lines make women think you’re clever — you couldn’t be more wrong! Instead, she’ll just think you have no game. Pick-up…

1. Baking Soda

Baking soda is the best natural deodorizer on the planet. Whether it’s wet carpet, pet urine, or fungus causing the smell, sprinkling a moderate amount of baking soda on your carpet and letting it stay will neutralize the bad odor. Later, you can vacuum a few times to suck up all the baking soda. In a spray bottle add 2 parts water and one part vinegar.

Spray this mixture onto the carpet and let it sit for a minute. Slowly sprinkle and coat the surface that is stained or the entire carpet or rug with baking soda. Let it stay…

1. Wear a mask

When going out, especially in crowded spaces and places with poor ventilation, it is important to wear a mask so that airborne particles have a harder time making it into your system.

A sneeze, a cough, or even talking to someone in a close proximity can pose a huge risk if you are not wearing a mask.

Ensure that your mask is fastened snugly, but not tightly, around your mouth and nose. Wear the mask when around any group of people and ensure it covers the entire lower half of your face for it to be most effective.

2. Do NOT touch your face
