We all like our white clothes as white as snow. This is the perfect color for all white laundry in the household. But many times our white clothes become pale gray as the time passes by.

The nature provides us with a solution for everything. You don't have to spend too much money for the ineffective bleaches and other laundry products. You can solve this problem with the following old-fashioned folk mixture. -

Your body makes hydrogen peroxide to fight infection which must be present for our immune system to function correctly. White blood cells are known as Leukocytes. A sub-class of Leukocytes called Neutrophils produce hydrogen peroxide.

Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2): Dr. Mercola suggests an unusual, yet effective, trick to beat upper respiratory infections - and that is hydrogen peroxide. He states that many patients have had amazing results curing colds and flu within 12 - 14 hours by administering a few drops of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide into each ear. According to him, one should expect to hear some bubbling and possibly feel a slight stinging sensation. He instructs to wait until the bubbling and stinging subside (typically within 5 to 10 minutes), then drain onto a tissue and repeat with the other ear. More about the Flu.

There is a growing trend in the homeschooling world that breaks my heart. Chances are if you're involved in a homeschooling group {online or in real l ife}, you've seen it too. The homeschooling mommy war.

I see it everywhere- in homeschooling groups, co-ops, online groups, homeschooling blogs... Anywhere that you have a few homeschooling mothers together, you'll probably begin to see it. The competition, comparison, tearing down... It is a raging battle, and it is all based on lies.

College graduates held onto more jobs during the recession than those who only completed high school, according to a new Georgetown study. They also continue to earn more: somewhere between $280,000 and $550,000 over a lifetime.

Young people considering college should certainly be aware of these numbers, but they should also take them with a grain of salt. A statistical average provides meaningful information about a population, but not an individual. Just because many people find financial security through college doesn't mean you must also.

To my dear daughter, As you grow, many boys will enter your years. They will speak words of love and passion, of wanting you-all of you. Their sex will be lacking.

Believe me, dear girl, I know what crazy hot lovemaking is made of. Until the boy can assure you of the following, it is not true passion. If he can patiently wait for over three years. From pregnant to nursing to pregnant to nursing, with your hormones fierce, and desire often dead. "Please, just let me sleep. I am so tired." will be your common response. Until he can love you still, choose you still, it is not true passion.

Ever wondered how you can enjoy delicious, homegrown tomatoes without a sprawling garden? The unruly nature of tomato bushes and vines might seem hard to contain.

Since tomatoes are a favorite veggie, the ability to grow them easily in pots on a small patio or even on a rooftop in the middle of a bustling city makes them a preferred choice for gardeners. Here are the keys for growing tomatoes successfully in a container.

With Ripon police too often getting calls to "serve and protect" children whose unfit guardians are unmindful of their welfare, what can our society do to intervene early on in the lives of those destined to failure because of parental neglect or worse..

Dr. Jack Westman in 1996 cited a private/public partnership of business and education leaders warning that absent a national policy of preventative investment in early childhood, our nation faces a future workforce that disproportionately is poor, unhealthy, uneducated, untrained — and an unsustainable entitlement drain on our economy. So the same government we’d hate to see license parents at the outset is left having to pay to feed, clothe, treat, rehabilitate and incarcerate victims of incompetent parenting.

Cacao and cocoa are kind of the same thing... They're also very different! We don't want to confuse you but we want you to discover the truth about their differences.

The studies that boast of chocolate's amazing health benefits are not referring to your average store-bought chocolate bar (damn misleading researchers). The chocolate that they're referring to is raw cacao. Raw cacao is made by cold-pressing unroasted cacao beans. The process keeps the living enzymes in the cacao and removes the fat (cacao butter).

Apps that are designed to make the user nearly anonymous have found favor with those who prey on young girls

Seeking affirmation, sexual or otherwise, is an age-old human condition, but the preponderance of mobile devices and social media apps allows us to cast a net into a worldwide abyss of unknown potential. The United Nations said there were more than 7 billion cellphone subscriptions in 2015 - 97 for every 100 people on Earth. Many criminal justice experts, educators and parents say that net has grown too large to leave unchecked in the hands of children and young adults who do not have the tools or the wherewithal to recognize when they're being duped - or worse.
