No Dirty Dishes Day - May 18

No Dirty Dishes Day is celebrated on May 18 every year, to give us all a break from the usual daily routine of washing dirty dishes after every meal.

It is not known who invented this day, but it was probably someone who did not like to wash dishes. He or she probably thought of how much it is Sisyphean: work hard and then enjoy a clean sink, and after a short time again see the sink full of dirty dishes because people ate at home. Annoying, isn't it?

So much money, time and energy is invested every day in washing and drying dishes, and then arranging them back in place, so one day a year is allowed to be freed from that need.

How to celebrate No Dirty Dishes Day?

There are several options to celebrate this day.

1. Do not wash the dirty dishes and wait with them until tomorrow. 

2. Eat outside so that there are no dirty dishes at home. 

3. Eat with disposable dishes (to be earth-friendly use disposable utensils made of consumables) 

4. Eat the food straight from the box, as in dishes that come packaged like pizza Or a hamburger and fries, or eating small meals that do not require dishes like a banana or a hard-boiled egg. 

5. Another option is to take the idea in the opposite direction and make sure all day that the sink is clean and shiny by washing the dirty dishes all the time. 

If you liked the idea, you can share photos and thoughts on social media using the hashtag #NoDirtyDishesDay.

Organize Your Home Day- January 14

It may not sound like much fun, but January 14th is a day of arranging and organizing the house. You may have a lot of work to do, but in the end you will be happy and say thank to yourself for that. Your home will be neat and organized, it will be fun to sit in and you will also be able to host people at a moment's notice. If you can keep the house in this condition until next year - it will be wonderful.

A tidy home contributes to balance in life. It reduces stress and contributes to your efficiency. It can save you time of searching, money on buying things you think you need and forgot you have, and in general it is much more pleasant.
A tidy house has many benefits, and if the house you live in is messy, it is today to tidy up and organize it and enjoy the benefits.

Another advantage of the house arrangement is that you burn calories. In light cleaning jobs like dusting and arranging cabinets, burn 170 calories an hour. If you carry heavy things along the way, the number of calories you burn will increase. An hour of sweeping the floor will burn you 270 calories and an hour of washing dishes will waste 200 calories.

How to celebrate Organize Your Home Day?
The first step is to plan the process and decide on the order of the tasks.
The second step is to collect the detergents you will use and concentrate them in one accessible place.
The next step is to start working: collect all the objects that are not in place and put them back in place.
Once you have arranged, it is time to start cleaning: Dust is removed from the shelves and objects. Start from the top and move down.
Sweep the house, vacuum, rinse it and take the garbage out to the trash outside.
After you finish, sit on the couch with your legs up and rest ...

Bicarbonate of Soda Day- December 30

Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is a substance that has so many uses in our daily lives, that it deserves its own day.
It helps the cookies and cakes we make to be soft, it helps with cleaning jobs, teeth whitening, sore throats, abdominal pain, skin lightening and even cancer treatment and more. It is good for so many things besides baking.

Who discovered the baking soda?
The main industrial process for producing baking soda is called the Solvay process after the Belgian industrialist Ernest Solva who developed the method and built the first production facility in 1864. In this process CO2 carbon dioxide is transferred through a concentrated solution of NaCl cooking salt and NH3 ammonia.
How to celebrate the day of baking soda?
You can celebrate the day of baking soda by building your own volcano: put lemon juice or vinegar in a cup, food coloring (if any - optional), some baking soda and you will get lava bubbling from a volcano. If you also add some dish soap to the celebration - you will get a spectacular foam that will burst from the cup.

Housewife's Day- 3 November

If you are a stay home mother or a full time housewife you probably feel that you are not as appreciated as you deserve for your efforts and your hard work at home. You probably will be happy to hear that there is a day devoted to the housewife that will make you feel different. November 3 is a day of appreciation for housewives around the world, the day the housekeeper is honored for caring for the house, which is not self-evident.
The politically correct expression for both a housewife and a househusband is now "homemaker".

The source of this day is not clear, but the suspicion is that it was created by a real housewife, someone who felt exhausted and unappreciated, someone who felt that the environment scorned the work of the housewife. Soon her idea stirred up enthusiasm and in various countries (especially in the US) began to mark him as housewife gifts like a spa day, a pampering dinner or anything that would do her good and make her feel how important she is.
