We're expecting a heatwave for this week, and because of that a memory popped up.
It's about 10 years ago that we were attending a festival in a bright and forceful sun. We put sunlotion on our faces, shoulders, noses and even the rim of the ears, but I came home with burns....in my neck.
So don't forget to wear either a hat, long hair, a skarf or sunlotion in your neck.
To keep your plants in the windowsil happy, clean the window and blind the part that casts the most sun during the hottest part of the day. It's not elegant, but a paper will do. Ofcourse you can also use sticky windowdecoration or plantscreens.
An opened fan will do fine for smaller plants and looks decorative too.
When you're having a party or expect visitors vacuum your carpet before they arrive. Not only will your room look nicer, when stains are made you won't be bothered by the dust and crumbs, which can absorb the stains or worsen them.
A good doormat will clean the soles of the shoes of your visitor.
To enjoy your flowers and plants longer you need to feed them regularly. Some people think plants need only water, but when you feed them properly they will look far better, are more resistant against pests and bugs, and last longer.
This blog was started by a mom of 6 children, 4 of them with autism spectrum disorder. She said: "I have repeated all sorts of housekeeping tips so many times that I've forgotten who knows what.
When the older boys moved to a place for themselves, they realized they needed to know all sorts of things to have a nice home and a smooth running household.
When the children of a friend asked for tips, we came up with the idea to start a site, for all to enjoy."
After a while more teammembers of Action for Autism wanted to share their tips.
When you want to share your tips, just let us know.

Typos and other mistakes are due to the fact that none of the writers is a native writer of english.
