Natural sheepskin rugs

Natural sheepskin rugs or Lambskin rugs are not only a stylish accessory for interior, but it is also a very useful thing for sleeping, playing and traveling  all the year round.

Natural sheepskin rugs are perfect for babies. They keep babies warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Sheepskins are extremely breathable. The air flows through and around wool, so the baby, sleeping on the sheepskin, feels himself comfortable. Natural wool provides natural air circulation, which protects the baby’s skin from sweating and drying out.

Attention! Sleeping a newborn on a natural sheepskin rug is recommended on the back only.

The sheepskins have a natural self-cleaning capacity. Do not wash them often. Hang out a sheepskin in the fresh air to clean naturally and brush it regularly.

Cut flowers keep fresh longer

Cut flowers keep fresh longer if you add one tablespoon sugar in lukewarm water. Do not change water every day; just top it up as needed.

The water in the vase with cut flowers will remain fresh and clean, if you put a piece of charcoal for grilling in it. Charcoal prevents the growth of bacteria and removes unpleasant odors.

Instead of charcoal for grilling, you can use a weak solution of warm water and potassium permanganate.

After use, rinse the vase with the solution of warm water and vinegar. Vinegar is the most effective way to kill bacteria, fungal spores and microorganisms.
