COOL TIPS FOR JEWELRY CARE IN SUMMER!

Warm, bright summer is here with promises of long vacations, beach getaways, pool parties and more! And we do need to plan what all things to pack and how. It is the same with jewelry…a bit of care and caution is needed when we carry ornaments while going places.

  • If you are headed for the beach, then sunbathe without your jewelry. Applying sunscreen or other lotions usually coats the gemstones and reduces their reflective and refractive power. Which makes them sparkle less. Also, clean your valuables regularly.

  • Also remove all your precious bling before entering a hot tub or a swimming pool. Just like salt water of the sea, the chlorine water too, can harm or discolor metals like gold or platinum and polish of gemstones.

  • If you pack your jewelry all together, they might get jumbled. Bracelets or rings can get tangled with chains, a diamond piece can scratch a pearl and so on. To prevent any kind of damage, use our efficient organizers to keep each piece in a different slot and cushioned against soft lining. Check out more: http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-jewellery-care

  • Always make sure that the hotel you check into, has a safe deposit vault. Keep your valuables there. Never leave your fine jewelry unattended in the hotel room, car rental or in the lounge, even for a few moments!

  • If you are shopping for jewelry in a new destination on your trip, do make sure that the seller has good reputation and has been in business for many years. It might also help to check their ratings or reviews.

  • Get your jewelry professionally cleaned by a reputed jeweler, after coming back from your vacation. This will help maintain their luster and shine.

  • If you take along an expensive piece of ornament on your holiday, like your wedding ring, family heirloom or a valuable watch, then ensure that it is fully insured. Consult an insurance agent before going on your trip.

SMART BATHROOM STORAGE IDEAS

When we think about home storage or organization, we usually consider all the rooms but often miss out on the bathroom. But your bathroom has immense potential to store a lot of stuff and look pretty at the same time! Whether it is tiny or huge, there is always a way to make the most of the space.

If you are blessed with a roomy bathroom, then a simple open shelf can carry a lot of things like towels, clothes, bath accessories and even a pretty bunch of flowers or an indoor plant for a homely touch! A wall cabinet will work well too.

1

A simple wooden shelf with pull out bins is great when you don’t want everyone to see every single thing. Looks clean too. Labeling the bins is another clever idea to always know where to find what!

3

A wall cabinet combined with a mirror is very useful. Just remember, the inside of the cabinet door can house a lot of small items. Or you can fix a wooden plank near the mirror and this can support things like toothbrush, toothpaste, cosmetics, shaving materials, medicines and more!

The space below the sink is ideal for storage and you can make it look good too! Check out these images to get ideas.

Colorful, bright wall brackets can add a dash of spunk to the bathroom, besides storage. They save floor area too. Or you can put up some rods on the wall and hang a couple of quaint baskets for the same purpose.

If you have a stepladder at home, use it to hang towels, robes or anything else you need!

Never underestimate the space surrounding the bathtub. A clever mechanism as shown below can help you keep all the soaps, shampoo bottles, shower gels, scrubs, lotions near at hand while you are enjoying your bath! Simple shelves or cabinets just above the tub will help too.

If you are really short on space, simply hang stuff! Get any simple organizer which you can fix in a corner or for a unique look, hang some wicker baskets with ropes…

Finally, don’t overlook the bathroom door. Hanging a shoe organizer on the backside of the door will banish the need for a cabinet! And a plain shelf above the door can be used to keep things like floor cleaners, detergents or extra towels which you don’t require everyday.

So go ahead and revamp that part of your home, which rejuvenates you every morning 🙂
