An Extra Long Shower Curtain For Modern Design

An extra long shower curtain is ideal for a bathroom that has a raised tub, a tall ceiling or a high curtain rod. While a regular curtain may be long enough for a standard tub or shower, many of today’s hottest modern designs require a longer curtain to prevent drips and water damage to the floor. Most of these new tubs are designed to have a more spacious-feeling interior, without taking up too much of the bathroom. Instead of putting the tub or shower in an alcove with a low roof, they take advantage of the full height of the room, leaving more space between the bottom of the tub and the top of the curtain.

Where to Buy an Extra Long Shower Curtain

Although they were difficult to find only a few years ago, advances in tub and shower design have made the extra long shower curtain much more common. If you are in the market for one of these curtains, however, you may still find that they are not readily available in every store. If you have something specific in mind, your best option may still be to have one custom sewn. A basic design can be done by any seamstress and more complex versions can often be custom ordered from home furnishing stores that manufacture their own products.

Custom made extra long shower curtain

If you do not want to pay extra to custom order your shower curtain, you may still be in luck. Although few stores keep these curtains in stock, most have access to industry catalogs and can order one in for you. Your best bet, however, is probably the internet. Online furnishing stores abound and many of them carry specialty items not carried by standard department stores.

Choosing the Right Extra Long Shower Curtain

There are a number of factors that go into finding the perfect extra long shower curtain. Because you are shopping for a specialty size, it is very important that you have accurate measurements when you begin. After all, not all extra long curtains are the same length. Use a tape measure to measure the space between your curtain rod and the floor. You should also measure the total length of the curtain rod, as some larger tubs require an extra wide curtain as well. When you buy your curtain, you should make sure that it comes with a matching, extra long curtain liner. If your liner is too short, you could end up with water on the floor.

Choosing any type of home decor is a personal decision that depends largely on your own sense of style. Because bathrooms tend to be smaller than most rooms, however, it is usually a good idea to keep things simple. Pick two or three colors to highlight and make sure that your curtain pattern does not clash with your bath mat, the walls or any hanging artwork you may have. Instead of matching your long shower curtain colors exactly, you can choose colors and patterns that complement each other to create a more complex look.

Easy Sweet and Sour Kielbasa

Sweet and Sour Kielbasa, made the easy way.

For most working moms and busy people in general, a slow cooker can be your best friend, offering fast and easy meal cooking solutions. Here is a simple, tasteful, kid tested and approved recipe for Sweet and Sour Kielbasa made right in your crock pot.

You will need:

* 1– 2 thawed or fresh Kielbasa links (depending on how many people you are looking to feed, I normally use 1 ½ packages) I prefer to use Hillshire Farms beef Kielbasa, but any kind will do.

* One 12oz jar of Heinz chili sauce (any brand will do, I just think Heinz tastes the best)

* One 12oz jar of Smuckers Grape Jelly (make sure you get jelly not preserves, it can not have fruit chunks in it)

* One 12oz of water (can use either chili sauce or jelly jar)

1) Start your slow cooker. Cooking time will be between 3-6 hours depending on the heat setting you choose.

2) Start by adding the Chili Sauce and the Grape Jelly to the crock pot; fill the jelly jar with water and add that also. Then cover.

3) I let the sauces warm up for a while until most of the jelly is no longer in ‘globs’, stirring frequently. (Some people may also opt to add diced onions at this point depending on taste and preference, I personally do not)

4) While sauce is warming up, cut thawed Kielbasa into ¼ to ½ inch pieces.

5) Place Kielbasa pieces into sauce while stirring.

6) Cover and cook. You can stir occasionally, but is ok to let it just sit and cook. Check Kielbasa pieces to make sure they are dark in color and you’re done. (A taste-test is always recommended, as some people like their meat cooked more or less then others) Stir before serving.

For this recipe, you can also use other types of meat; it works great with steak or chicken also. You can serve alone or over white rice. If you are serving a lot of people, you can always double the recipe; just make sure your slow cooker is a large one! Also, for adventurous cookers, you can make the sauce alone in a pan on the stove and then pour over your favorite beef tips for a great tasting alternative.

Bon Appetite!

Anal Itching

Anal itching also known as  (Pruritus Ani), or for the non-medical types its just an itchy bum. Since I am a sufferer of Hemorrhoids and not a doctor, we can just skip the Medical mumbo jumbo for now.  🙂

What is anal itching?

Anal itching is the irritation of the skin at the exit of the rectum, known as the anus, accompanied by the desire to scratch. Although itching may be a reaction to chemicals in the stool, it often implies that there is inflammation of the anal area. The intensity of anal itching and the amount of inflammation increases from the direct trauma of scratching and the presence of moisture. So the more you scratch and the harder you scratch the worse it can get.

What causes Itchy Bum?

Itchy bum/ anal itch can be caused by irritating chemicals in the foods we eat, such as are found in spices, hot sauces, and peppers.
Anal itching also can be caused by the irritation of continuous moisture in the anus caused by frequent liquid stools, diarrhea, or escape of small amounts of stool (incontinence).
Psoriasis also can irritate the anus.
Abnormal passageways (fistulas) from the small intestine or colon to the skin surrounding the anus can form as a result of disease (such as Crohn’s disease), and these fistulas bring irritating fluids to the anal area.

Other problems that can cause anal itching include:

  • pinworms
  • hemorrhoids, “more common”
  • tears of the anal skin (fissures)

How is Itchy Bum treated?

Initial treatment of simple itching is directed toward relieving the burning and soreness. For natural Hemorrhoid Treatment, it is important to clean and dry the anus thoroughly and avoid leaving soap in the anal area. Cleaning efforts should include gentle showering without direct rubbing or soreness of the skin with either the washcloth or towel. After bowel movements, moist pads (such as baby wipes, flushable moist wipes, and flushable anal cleansing wipes) should be used for cleaning the anus instead of toilet paper.

Ointments, creams, and gels – when used around the anus – should be applied as a thin covering. When applied to the anal canal, these products should be inserted with a finger or a “pile pipe.”  Suppositories or foams do not have advantages over ointments, creams, and gels.

Natural and Fast Impetigo (Infantigo) Treatment

Impetigo or Infantigo is a common but extremely bothersome skin condition that is most prevalent among young children. It is highly contagious and can be passed around the daycare center or classroom just as quickly and easily as chicken pox. Adults can also contract impetigo, but that is much less common, unless the adults happen to play contact sports such as wrestling or rugby.

Those with impetigo will have one of two different forms of the infection; bullous impetigo or ecthyma.

Bullous impetigo is most common among children under the age of 2 and is characterized by the appearance of small fluid filled blisters on various different parts of the body. These blisters are not painful, but the skin around the blisters is usually red and itchy.

Ecthyma is a much more severe version of impetigo, which is characterized by painful, pus filled blisters, swollen lymph glands, scales and little holes in the skin. Adults who do contract impetigo will generally be diagnosed with ecthyma.

Whether the sufferer is an adult or a child, however, the pain and social awkwardness that they experience will be the same. Ecthyma impetigo is usually found on the feet and legs but it can also appear on a person’s face, neck and virtually anywhere else on the body.

Aside from the pain and awkwardness experienced by impetigo sufferers, if left untreated or not properly cared for, impetigo can become infected, which will not only further the issue but is likely to result in several scars.

Impetigo/Infantigo Treatments

Impetigo treatment methods vary, but antibiotics are usually prescribed by doctors. Other traditional impetigo treatment methods include bacterial ointments and a lot of soap and water.

Those who have suffered through impetigo, particularly adults, have had to suffer for a duration of two to three weeks before their symptoms cleared up while utilizing methods prescribed to them by their doctor.

This extended treatment time frame, along with the embarrassment suffered throughout the infection and the cost of medical treatment, has led many sufferers to look for natural or alternative treatment methods.

“Fast Impetigo Cure” by Stephen Sandersson

Who Is Stephen Sandersson?

Stephen Sanderson contracted impetigo from his youngest niece when he was 32 years old. His frustration over being told that it would probably take about 21 days for the impetigo to clear up led him to begin researching all possible alternative methods of impetigo treatment.

After committing to both researching and trying out some of the natural alternatives that he found, he discovered the right mixture of natural products and cured himself of his impetigo 11 days before his doctor had predicted that it would clear up.

After his success, he shared his secrets with several other people who were suffering from the same affliction. Parents came to him for help and also utilized his methods to cure their children. Mr. Sanderson quickly discovered that those who began using his impetigo treatment immediately were generally impetigo free within 3 days.

After spending 5 years doing further research and sharing his discovery with several local sufferers of impetigo, Sanderson decided that he needed to also share this information with the rest of the world.

Having suffered through the pain and embarrassment of the skin infection, he knows more personally about the condition than most doctors who have never had their own encounter with impetigo. As such, he understands the physical and social aspects of what sufferers are going through and how they can negatively impact their career or school life.

To assist fellow sufferers in the most wide reaching way possible, he has compiled a guide with step-by-step instructions, entitled “Fast Impetigo Cure“.

What Do You Get with “Fast Impetigo Cure” System?

This guide, which is available instantly through an eBook download, will explain exactly what impetigo is and how to cure yourself of it. It goes through multiple different scenarios and explains the best natural methods to remove your or your child’s embarrassing impetigo bumps within 3 days.

Sanderson’s eBook does not skimp on content and, instead, is actually filled with a surprisingly large amount of crucial information. It is written in an easy to read format and it places an emphasis on not only curing the impetigo infection, but in also making sure that the sufferer will not spend the rest of their life with the telltale scars of the illness. Perhaps best of all, the eBook comes with a 100 percent money back guarantee, so you can try Sanderson’s impetigo treatment completely risk free.

Cutting the duration of an impetigo outbreak from 21 days to 3 days, especially with a risk free product, is a no brainer. If you or your child is currently suffering from impetigo, the “Fast Impetigo Cure” guide is well-worth to try.

What Causes Blue Waffles Infections?

Before beginning the search for a cure for a blue waffle infection, it is important to first determine what yeast infections are and what causes yeast infections. Yeast infections also known as candidiasis is something a result of blue waffles disease can affect anyone male or female and of any age although it is commonly women who complain of a yeast infection in the vaginal area.

Candida Albicans

Yeast infections are caused by fungi which are prevalent all over the body and it is quite normal for them to be present on the body. Yeast infections become a concern when there is an overgrowth of yeast in a particular area of the body leading to many unpleasant symptoms.

When this overgrowth occurs, it is usually blamed on a fungus known as candida with the most common type being Candida Albicans although many other types of fungi can play a role in yeast infections. However in most cases of yeast infections, the candida commonly making up the greatest percentage of the infection is candida albicans. Under a microscope, candida appears as round, large colonies of cream, white or whitish gray substance.

As mentioned earlier, all types of candid including candida albicans, are common in a healthy body and can dwell peacefully with other flora found in the body. In a healthy body, there will be a perfect balance between fungi and bacteria with each of these keeping the other in check to prevent overgrowth of either bacteria or fungi.

Fungi prefer warm, dark, wet areas of the body such as the mouth, ears, the gastrointestinal area, ears, skin folds, armpits, vaginal or anal area, etc.

The normal form of candida including candida albicans is in the form of single oval yeast cells. When in yeast form, it usually duplicates itself through budding. This results in the cells creating genetic clones of themselves through bulbs that “grow” out of them. These bulbs may stay attached to the parent cells for a little while before letting go of the parent cells.

What Causes?

A healthy human body remains at a certain temperature and a certain pH level (potential of hydrogen which measures the acidity or alkinity on a scale of 0 to 14 with 7 being neutral) which keeps the yeast and bacteria in check and perfectly balanced without problems.

What causes your blue waffles infections is that when the body temperature and/or the pH levels change for whatever reason, it could lead to an overgrowth of bacteria or yeast or the death of bacteria that prevent the overgrowth of candida. When there is an overgrowth of yeast, it leads to yeast infections. What disrupts this perfect ph balance remains unknown but there are certain risk factors.

Candida albicans mark their territory during this overgrowth by causing any of these sensations such as burning, soreness, itching or tingling. In some cases, no symptoms of a yeast infection are produced. When some of these symptoms of a yeast infection are produced, it is usually advisable not to scratch or rub the irritated areas as it will only make the candida albicans overgrowth problem worse.

Other symptoms of a blue waffle infection include fatigue, muscle aches, drowsiness, pain or swelling in the joints, fluid retention, dizziness, tissue swelling, lack of coordination, loss of balance, lack of concentration, mood swings, poor memory, depression, irritability, anxiety, and cravings for sugars, carbohydrates and alcohol since yeast loves sugars or anything that will be converted to sugar.

It should be noted that while these are some of the common symptoms of a yeast infection, they can also be symptoms of other conditions so if in doubt, only a doctor can pinpoint what the problem is whether it is candidiasis or some other infection.

When a yeast infection is to blame, other side effects can be present in or around the infected area such as white or cream colored patches inside the mouth, that go as far as the soft palate which can lead to digestion problems and even make bowel movement difficult.

Vaginal areas may report an excessive white or whitish discharge. Penises affected by yeast infections can have patchy sores on or around the head or the foreskin. There can also be a discharge from ears, in the stool, etc.

It is important to take steps to cure a yeast infection immediately or it may cause other conditions that you may have to become more serious and even fatal. This is especially true in individuals who have a weakened immune system or an underdeveloped immune system from other conditions such as diabetes, the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

Yeast infections and even persistent yeast infections can be cured easily with drugs or natural remedies. Curing a yeast infection naturally is probably best because there are usually no side effects associated with natural remedies unlike with drugs and these methods are cheaper.

When studying what causes yeast infections, it is important to note that while an overgrowth of candida albicans is usually to blame for yeast infections, it is still unknown why this overgrowth occurs although certain risk factors have been identified that can lead to issues with the pH or body temperature.

Recipes Crockpot Sausage

Crock-pot Sausage: An Italian staple

Sausage can be cooked in many wondrous ways. Some like the crunchy, slightly burnt boardwalk style that was made famous on the Jersey Shore. Some like it sliced into pennies and thrown into their lasagna. My favorite way is in the crock-pot. It comes out tender, moist, and flavorful.
The ingredients are simple, and the recipe is perfect for amateur cooks, or just harried mothers on the go.
You need:
2 Large onions
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
Enough sweet Italian sausage to feed your crew – think about 2 links per person
2 jars of your favorite marinara spaghetti sauce
16 oz of water
Mozzarella cheese
Enough hoagie rolls to house each sausage

First, you peel and cut your onions in half, then slice the halves into thin strips. Arrange all of the onions into a layer on the bottom of the crock-pot.
Next, you core your peppers, and rinse the excess seeds out. Cut each pepper in half, then again into thin strips. Place this layer over the onions.
Take your Italian sausage, and place them on top of the peppers.
Pour the marinara sauce over the sausage, and add the water.
Cover the crock-pot with the lid, and set to cook for 4 hours. Check every hour or so to make sure the water hasn’t cooked out. Feel free to add more if needed.
Put a small amount of the onions and peppers onto a hoagie roll, and place the sausage onto the roll. Next, ladle some sauce onto all, and top with mozzarella cheese.
Finally – enjoy!
