Safe Paw Ice Melter


Don't ruin your holidays with a fall and injury on slippery steps and walkways, especially with so many guests and relatives visiting. Many of us use ice melters to clear the path of ice, but most ice melters contain salt which can poison and burn our pets and children.

Got the Winter Blues? Light Boxes Help SAD


Many of us find ourselves getting a little blue when the seasons change. There are many different treatments for the winter-based seasonal affective disorder, including light therapy with sunlight or bright lights.

Light Boxes May Help Melt Those Winter Blues - cites a 2006 multicenter double-blind randomized controlled trial that compared bright-light therapy with the antidepressant Prozac (fluoxetine) in 96 subjects. The study found that the two treatments were equally effective for alleviating winter depression, though light produced results faster, usually within a week, and with fewer side effects.


An affordable device such as this popular SunTouch Plus Light and Ion Therapy Lamp safely combines the powerful healing of 10,000-lux light therapy and negative ion therapy. The SunTouch bathes you in light while simultaneously releasing healthy negative ions into the atmosphere. Lift your spirits, balance your body clock, and feel refreshed.

Winter Tires -- Are They Necessary?


If you see a lot of winter weather where you live and drive, you may wonder if it's necessary to put winter tires on your car, or maybe just get by with a good set of all-season tires. The folks over at Consumer Reports are wondering the same thing, and the answer depends.

Even if your vehicle has all-wheel drive, winter tires deliver better stopping grip on snow and ice than most all-season tires. They are the right choice if you commonly drive in wintry weather, or if you just want a greater piece of mind.

On the other hand, if you live in an area with infrequent winter weather or can wait for the roads to be cleared after a storm before heading out, all-season tires are a better choice.

Create an Economical Reusable Storm Window This Winter with Bubblewrap


You can make a reusable storm window out of bubble wrap, according to Lifehacker tip. If appearance is a concern, the bubble wrap can be confined to less visible windows, such as the bathroom.

The strategy is to attach the bubble wrap to a clothes hanger frame, instead of taping it into the window, to create a tight frame. When warm weather arrives, you can remove it and store it for use next cold season. Get the directions.
