Statement designs include amethyst and diamond droplet belly bars, created with purple stones which complement the diamonds perfectly. Depending on your style you can select either a normal hanging or dropper bar, which will be handmade to your requirements. Alternatively, why not match the sea with eye-catching blue topaz and diamond drop belly bars. These pretty stones glisten in the sunlight and are perfect for accessorising your bikini.

Aggie MacKenzie explains the importance of cleaning your carpet

Some new information about what is living in our carpets has emerged, courtesy of Rug Doctor and Aggie MacKenzie. The shocking results show that dirty carpets harbour harmful bacteria. In order to keep their homes clean and healthy, people are advised to deep clean their carpets with a professional machine.

Aggie MacKenzie, famous for the TV series How Clean is Your House, has teamed up with Rug Doctor to investigate the health of the nation’s carpets. The What Lies Beneath campaign has uncovered some surprising evidence; our carpets may not be as clean as we think. In a recent interview with the company, Aggie explained the findings.

The campaign aims to build up awareness of “all the nasties lurking in our carpets.” Aggie explained that although people may know there is dust, hair, pollen and skin cells amongst the pile, bacteria are a far more sinister threat. She said that these are “potentially very harmful bacteria that could cause disease,” and gave salmonella, e-coli, listeria and campylobacter as examples.

When asked why she was supporting the campaign, Aggie said it is “really important to get your carpets deep cleaned.” However, people tend to forget how dirty their carpets are or aren’t aware of the dangers.

While carpets might look clean, they often aren’t. Aggie suggested that using a carpet cleaning machine can make all the difference: “It’s not until you actually do that you realise how filthy it is.” The colour, feel and smell of the carpet can all be improved. “It’s just amazing, the difference it makes,” she said.

Rug Doctor conducted surveys as part of their research and found that while between 75 and 80% of people think their houses are clean, 40 to 45% have never had their carpet deep cleaned. This has serious health implications. Aggie explained that some of the bacteria that have been found can cause food poisoning and stomach ulcers.

The ‘Queen of Clean’ also found that the research bore out her own experiences working on How Clean is Your House. Cardiff was found to be especially dirty, and Aggie recalled that the Welsh were among the worst offenders in terms of keeping their homes clean when she was shooting the programme.

One of the problems is that rather than “spring cleaning,” people are increasingly resorting to “skim cleaning.” Aggie suggested that people should deep clean their carpets twice a year, and people who smoke, have allergies, pets or small children may want to do it more often. Although it may seem like a hassle, she said that “when you witness the colour of the water coming out of the carpet, you will need no further convincing.”

People who don’t clean their carpet using a professional machine could be putting themselves and their family at risk. Aggie was quick to point out that, potentially, “you could become very ill from not cleaning your carpet.” When you think we occasionally tread in dog mess in the street, and walk around the house in the same shoes, it’s easy to see why. People often lounge around on the floor, watching TV or playing, and in doing so could pick up some nasty bacteria.

Rug Doctor produce a range of home cleaning products, including their world famous carpet cleaning machine. Aggie MacKenzie is supporting their campaign to improve the cleanliness of our carpets and recommends deep cleaning with the Rug Doctor. Most people in the UK are within ten minutes of a rental outlet, so visit their website today and clean up your home.

Plan your DIY project to perfection: don’t forget the floor prot

DIY can be really satisfying, especially when your partner comes in and sees what you’ve done, but if you’ve failed to plan properly their reaction might not be what you were hoping for. Remembering to have a budget, protect wooden floors and wear a mask might sound boring, but these are the things that make a difference.

Everyone knows that home improvements add value to your home and make it nicer to live in. At least, that’s the theory. While a well planned DIY project should go without a hitch, poor planning will lead to frustration, rage and possible decapitation. Here are some simple tips to stop you losing your head.

Think things through
One mistake people make is to think about what they want to do, but not how they will do it or what it will cost. Having a budget and an idea how to do each step of the process is essential. It is also a good idea to collect all the materials together in one place – there is nothing worse than having to run out for a screw or a piece of wood at a crucial moment.

Protect your stuff
Before you actually start doing any work, it is important to make sure you won’t do any damage to your house. Moving objets d'art and dangling bulbs out of the way can be a good idea, and protecting the floor is a must. While dust sheets provide some protection, it is now possible to get specialised tapes that stick to the floor, keeping it clean and undamaged. Floor protection film works well on just about any hard surface, whether solid wood, laminate, tiles or vinyl. Knocking a paint can over needn’t be quite such a disaster.

Protect yourself
Even more important is keeping yourself safe. Most people know to be careful with power tools, but it is easy to forget to check that your ladder is safe or to wear a mask. Many home improvements generate a lot of dust – if you’re protecting the floor, make sure you also protect your lungs and eyes. Leave a window open if there will be any nasty fumes.

It might also be worth making sure your family know what you’re doing. Getting them involved can be fun, but at the very least they need to know not to let the cat in. Having your feline friend jump in the paint and wander around the room isn’t good, although if you’ve used floor protection film you might see the funny side.

What to Look for in a HDMI audio video cable

Your decision of which kind of HDMI Audio visual Cable to buy should not be based on brands or prices. You should consider specifications including connectors, version, and category.

Just because the HDMI audio video cable on display is expensive doesn’t mean it’s the best. Big prices don’t necessarily mean superior quality.

Different retailers offer a wide range of HDMI cables. Some are 6 feet in length with gold plated connectors, and a £100 price tag to match. However, the question is, do you really need a £100 HDMI audio video cable? Does it really have to be that expensive?

Same Quality for a Tenth of the Price
Online retailers offer the same kind of HDMI audio video cables for a tenth of the price. When a price is that low, you are sure something has been compromised.

Think again.
Part of the operational expense of an in-store retailer is the rental and maintenance of their store. That includes rent, electricity, security and employee cost, and the only way to cover these costs is to pass it on to the customers. Online stores don’t have expenses such as these, which considerably pulls the price of their products down.

What to Look for in an HDMI Cable

The newest version of HDMI audio visual cable 1.3c, but you don’t need 1.3c. You can settle for 1.3 for HDMI to HDMI. Not only is this more cost-efficient, it also does everything 1.3c can do, including Deep Colour.

There are different connections:
• Type A is a full size HDMI connection. It has 19 pins and supports SDTV, EDTV and HDTV.
• Type B has 29 pins and can support six differential pairs.
• Type C, or mini HDMI, is smaller and has 13 pins.
• Type D, or micro HDMI, has 19 pins and the smallest connector.
• Type E is a new locking type of connector designed for securing internal connections.

Make sure the connection type you purchase is compatible with your system.

The category of your cable will determine the resolution of your HDTV. The Category 2 cable carries the 1080p. Don’t purchase Category 1, as this gives a lower resolution.

Last Words
Now you know what to look for, you know better than to purchase a HDMI cable based on its price or brand. Whether you purchase from a retailer or an online store, what matters is the specifications. Remember to check the shipping details and return policies, and purchase direct from a reliable and knowledgeable manufacturer.
