Use sage to repel mosquitoes Place some sage in your campfire and the smell is sure to ward off any pesky mosquitos. Liquid soap + cotton balls = no ticks. If you or one of your fellow campers is having trouble with a tick, place the soap-soaked cotton on the tick for 20 seconds. The tick will eventually stop chewing and will come away with the cotton ball. If the tick was attached for a lengthy amount of time you may want to consider keeping it in a container so that you can test it for Lyme disease later. One water bottle will hold eight eggs. By keeping all your eggs in a bottle you save time and hassle. Plus, no need to carry extra bowls or a whisk! Deodorant can be used to combat itchiness.

  • Three ways to power your car

    Know the three ways to power your car. This may mean that petrol might be a thing of the past soon #MidasPower For more information, speak to us at Midas Randburg | 191 Bram Fischer Drive, Randburg | (011) 789-4411 | marco@midasrandburg.co.za With research in alternative energy at an all-time high, scientists are coming up with more ways than one to power vehicles. We take a look at 3 alternatives that don’t require a drop of traditional petroleum-based fuel. Let’s go for a ride. Hydrogen Hydrogen-fueled cars certainly seem ideal. For gas, they use the most abundant element in the universe, and emissions consists of precisely two things — heat and water. What’s not to love? In terms of mass production, though, issues of technical feasibility and affordability are still being worked out. For starters, hydrogen doesn’t exist on its own. It has to be manufactured and that process oftentimes burns fossil fuels. Thankfully, plenty of researchers are trying to figure out to made hydrogen using renewable energy. Several hydrogen fuel vehicles are currently in development, including the Honda FCX Clarity, available for lease in southern California. Salt water Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the Quant e-Sportlimousine has a driving range of more than 370 miles and is powered by saltwater. Well, kinda-sorta. The car’s unique electric flow battery uses salt water as a storage solution, with two separate 200-liter tanks in the rear of the vehicle. Biodiesel A subset of the biofuel designation, biodiesel is produced from soy or vegetable oil and can be used as a pure fuel itself or blended with petroleum in any percentage.   Source: www.complex.com
