Life Hacks For The Household

Household Tips

Here are some household tips which I picked up recently.

Using chalk to reduce moisture / dehumidify closets

If your closets have a musky smell, it means that the humidity levels is high. Leave a bundle of chalk in your closet to keep it dry and fresh. The chalk absorbs the moisture from the air.
Discard it when the chalk feels a bit damp / not like "fresh" chalk.

Using pandan leaves as a refrigerator freshener

Sometimes your fridge may smell bad because of fish, meat or other food that went bad. Pop in a bunch of washed pandan leaves, tied in a bundle with a rubber band and leave it inside. It will kill off those odours and gives a fresh pandan fragrance.
What is pandan leaves?

Natural mosquito repellent

Slice a lime into half and insert some cloves into the flesh and leave it where the mosquitoes cause a nuisance.

Candy Crush Jelly Saga - Tips and Tricks

Have you tried the latest Candy Crush Jelly Saga yet?

More challenges await you in this game, kudos to King for coming up with yet another game to suck our time away!

One of the main highlight of this game which I particularly enjoy is the battle with the Jelly Queen. It becomes like a game of chess as you take turns with the Jelly Queen to unveil the hidden marshmallows called Pufflers or to spread your jelly over the game board.

Here are some of my personal tips for Candy Crush Jelly Saga.

When you are playing the Pufflers battle with the Jelly Queen, there are a few things to note. As you are taking turns with the Jelly Queen, you must ensure that your moves do not allow her to take advantage of the game when she takes the next turn. For example, if you leave the next move for her to just flip open the last jelly to reveal the Puffler, it will be to your detriment. Creating special jelly on your turn will force her to miss a turn.

If you are playing the battle to spread the jelly over the board, make sure you are matching the jellies with at least one of them on a tile with your colour in order to spread the jelly. If you are matching with no tiles of your own but that of the Jelly Queen, you end up spreading the Queen's colour instead.

Similarly, creating special jellies will make her miss her turn. Creating 3 special jellies in a row will fill up the entire board with your colour, winning the game for yourself.

In this game, I find the jelly fishes only useful if used when there are few tiles left to clear. So don't be in a hurry to use them, use them strategically.

If your iphone or ipad has a faulty power and home button, this is what you can do within the phone software itself to trigger a reboot, without the need to physically press the home and power button.
