We all deal with sink and drain clogs at some point, but many of us put the problem on the backburner until we’re taking a bath in the shower or the sink is so stopped up that washing your hands nearly floods the bathroom. 

Tackling the problem early on can save you money in the long-run, but taking steps to prevent clogs in the first place will save you frustration. Here are four tips to help keep your drains clean and clog-free.

1. Avoid Pouring Grease Down the Drain

Grease is the enemy of your home’s pipes. Have you ever left bacon grease or coconut oil on the counter? What happens when the oil cools? It congeals, or becomes a solid. The same thing happens when the oil makes its way down your pipes.

You may pour hot bacon grease down the drain, but eventually, that grease will cool and solidify in your pipes. Before you know it, you have a build-up of grease and grime that creates a clog in your kitchen sink. 

Instead of pouring oil and grease down the drain, toss it in the trash. Some people choose to save bacon grease in a coffee can or container for later use.

Starting an online clothing store is something we often see on Instagram but rarely successfully executed. A significant reason for this is that most overlook designing their social experience from the ground up, beginning with what someone will see when they first visit your page to them getting to your website on checkout. That’s why we’re going to go over a few tips on how to launch your store, so it’s Instagram-ready. Check them out below:

Focusing On What You Stand For

One of the most significant parts of starting a clothing store that resonates on social is first knowing just what exactly you’ll be socializing about. While on a practical level your main purpose will be to pick clothes, photograph them, and try to sell them through your Instagram on an online shop, unfortunately, there are plenty of other stores trying to do the same. That’s not to say it isn’t a good idea, however, it’s important to know how what separates you from the crowd, which starts with what you stand for.

A big part of knowing what you stand for is first knowing what the core of your belief system is. To establish this, most companies write a brand mission, statement, or mantra, which is an outline of the core reasons why they’re in business in the first place. This statement is something a lot of customers seek out first; as noted by Vision Critical, 91 percent of customers want to follow brands they consider to be authentic in their posts. Take the time to map out your values as a clothing store, as this will guide your content.

Home flaws, no matter how small you may think they are, will make it harder to sell your home. Most homebuyers understand that a home won’t be flawless, especially an older home, but they also don’t expect to pay thousands of dollars to make repairs without some sort of discount on the home’s price.

Sometimes, as a long-term owner of the home, you may start to ignore the slow draining faucet or creaking floor boards.

But others may not be able to ignore these small issues.

When selling your home, you’ll want to make the following repairs to boost your home’s selling value and make a sale faster.

1. Ripped Window Screens

A rather small repair that can make a big difference, a ripped window screen will happen naturally over time. These screens are difficult to replace, and many buyers will not budge and won’t repair the screen.

Buyers will often ask for credit so that they can have the repairs made.

Some buyers will back away from a purchase if the homeowner refuses to make the repair. Sometimes, a repair can be $5 for a screen that can be repaired, or it can be $100+ to have a professional replace the entire screen.

If you’re thinking about writing a novel but aren’t sure where to start, you aren’t alone. Every writer, even Ernest Hemingway and J.K. Rowling, had times when they felt like they just couldn’t write. But the fact is, writing a novel is all about getting into the right mindset. Like any form of creation, you need to commit to writing your novel and coming up with the right strategies to inspire yourself even on the hardest of days. And even though it may sound crazy, one of the best ways to force yourself to get that novel written is by making your writing time last only one month. That way, instead of dragging out the process, you can get it all done in a short amount of time.

It’s not an easy task, but by using the right strategies, you can get your novel written in thirty days. Once that’s happened, you can take a step back and edit all the material you’ve written. Here’s how to get started!

Get prepared and inspired beforehand

Before you even start working on your novel, you need to prepare. Because the minute you start writing every day, you won’t have much time to do any additional research or character development. The six months prior to writing, re-read your favorite authors and read new books related to your novel. It’s not a bad idea either to check out related films. For example, if you’re writing a novel about musicians, check out movies like A Star Is Born and Almost Famous.

Additionally, do your character research, and think about the important milestones in your book. J.K. Rowling, whose net worth was $650 million back in 2017, planned out the entire plot to the Harry Potter series before even putting her pen down to paper. So a little prep goes a long way! It’s important, in the same way that influencers use tools like SocialGoneViral to get followers.
