How to of the Day
How to Wear Crocs
It's easy to tell why Crocs are such a hit with both casual and die hard footwear fans as soon as you put them on. Because of their clunky, cartoonish design, however, it's not always so easy to pull them off. If you're the fashion-forward type but aren't willing to sacrifice comfort for the sake of style, you can incorporate your cozy, cushioned Crocs into a variety of outfits by pairing them with items like slim-cut jeans, hats, and in matching colors.
How to Grow Onions in Water
Growing onions in water is a great way to reuse kitchen scraps, not to mention a fun activity that helps kids learn about vegetables. This method offers a front-row seat to plant growth, as you can watch the roots extend into the water and observe the sprout growing out of the onion top. The assembly of this project is super simple; all you need are some onions, a clear glass, and some fresh water. While onions can grow this way for a few weeks on your windowsill, you’ll want to eventually replant the bulbs in soil in order for the vegetable to grow to maturity.
How to Decorate with Leaves
Leaves are a great tool for decorating, especially during the months when they're changing colors. You might use fake leaves to decorate your home or opt for real ones that you pick off of your trees. Use the leaves to create centerpieces for tables, make wall hangings, or even paint them to change their color or add flair. With just a little bit of time and some creativity, you can easily turn regular leaves into great decorations.
How to Cook Ribs in the Oven
If you're intimidated by the time and skill it takes to grill ribs, cook them low and slow in the oven. Season pork or beef spare ribs with your favorite dry rub and then bake them for several hours at very low heat. Once the meat is tender and almost falling off the bone, you can brush the ribs with barbecue sauce and stick them under the broiler for a few minutes to give them a rich brown color.
How to Cure Toenail Fungus with Vinegar
Nail fungus refers to a fungal infection that starts underneath your toenails. It could cause discoloration, thickening, or crumbling on one or more of your nails. This is a frustrating problem, so you’ll naturally want to get rid of nail fungus as soon as possible. One remedy you may have heard of is soaking your foot in vinegar to clear the infection. Vinegar is acidic, so it will kill bacteria and fungus. However, this remedy has very limited success because the vinegar can’t penetrate under the nail. You can try it if you want to, but visit a podiatrist for further treatment if you don’t see any results in 2 weeks.
