Houseplant Rebirth

Repot Houseplants
Spring is a great time to repot your houseplants. Plants that haven't been repotted in the past three years should be given a clean home and fresh soil even if they haven't outgrown their pot. If you plan to reuse the pot, clean it in a solution of 1 part bleach to 9 parts water, then scrub well in soapy water and rinse thoroughly. This will kill any bacteria or viruses lurking in the pot.

Warning Other Drivers

Being stranded on the side of a busy road can be dangerous. You need to do as much as you can to let other drivers be aware of your presence. In addition to using your car's hazard lights, it's a good idea to keep some flares, a battery-operated flasher or a warning triangle in your emergency kit. Make sure you have matches for flares and that your warning triangle is reflective to be seen at night. Seriousl- make sure you have these items to get you the help you need, as well as to keep yourself safe
