Going to college is an exciting time in anyone’s life. You have total freedom for the first time in your life, are able to make your own decisions, and only have yourself to answer to. Socializing with fellow students is a part of college. When trying to make new friends, some student’s find that drinking helps make them more outgoing and fun.

When you hear of natural and organic skin care products you think of ingredients that must be straight from nature and healthy for your body. To be sure that what the manufacturer is claiming is true you have got to read the ingredients on the label. There are some basic ingredients in skin care products: emollients, emulsifiers, humectants, preservatives and surfactants. There are natural and synthetic types of each of these ingredients. It is up to you whether you choose products with natural ingredients or synthetic ingredients.
Emollients act as a barrier to the skin to protect it from getting dry and can also promote healing. Examples of natural emollients are plant oils like Jojoba, avocado and Rosehip. Jojoba, cocoa and Shea butters are excellent natural emollients as well. Synthetic emollients are Isopropyl Palmitate, mineral oil, paraffin and dimethicone. The synthetic types of emollients create a barrier on your skin like plastic and don’t let the skin respire. (more…)
When a plumbing disaster strikes it’s always at the worst possible moment, usually after-hours or right before you’re about to leave for the day. That results in a frantic call for your local plumber or Roto-Rooter emergency services. After-hours emergency calls can often be expensive unless you’ve signed a service contract with your plumber that includes these calls. The best way to prevent them is by taking care of your plumbing systems through regular maintenance. Here are a few tips to help you prevent these unexpected disasters.
We’ve probably all dealt with a clogged shower drain at one point or another. That’s because clogged drains are some of the most common plumbing problems that arise. The reason for this is that most people rinse everything down the drain no matter what. That includes hair, soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and more. When the hair goes down the drain along with those chemicals it tends to get caught in the pipes and builds up a blockage. The best way to prevent this is by purchasing a three-dollar part: a shower drain screen. You can pick up a mesh screen for your drain at any home improvement store. All you have to do is empty out the screen after each shower and you’ll avoid a clogged drain altogether. (more…)
When a water heater goes haywire, it’s always an inconvenience. The cost of repairs and the time without hot water can bring a busy day to a halt. It’s a good thing that Roto-Rooter fixes water heaters. They offer 24 hour service 7 days a week. That way, the inconvenience only lasts a few hours rather that spreading it out over the course of a week. Here are a few things that will dictate the cost of a water heater repair.
Where you live does make a difference on how much you will pay for a water heater repair or replacement. First, is the mileage that a house-call will require. If you live far away from the plumbing company, expect to pay more for the house-call, especially if gas prices are elevated. Second, your cost of living will also affect the cost of repairs. All of the parts to repair your water heater are purchased locally. That means if you live in the city, you can probably expect to pay up to 10 percent more for parts just because the cost of living is more expensive. (more…)
