A few weeks ago, an interesting exchange took place between Reddit users and Portland Trail Blazers guard Anfernee Simons. Leaping into a Reddit AMA on the scientifically charged question of whether water is wet or dry, Simons’ reply challenged minds and blew theories out of the water: “No, water is not wet.”
How Wet is Water?
People laughed, and a few commentators leaped in with comparisons to Kyrie Irving’s hastily withdrawn ‘flat earth’ comments.
But the thing is – Simons’ answer was, “on the money.” He went on to clarify that water is not wet, but; “Whatever water gets on is wet.”

Fall is a great time of year for a “spring cleaning!”
When we start to close our windows and doors and reach for a sweater instead of sunscreen when leaving the house…you know that a seasonal shift is well underway.
So, make sure you keep your home as clean as it can be this Fall with the ultimate household cleaner!
Water Ionizer Cleaning Power!
A Tyent water ionizer doesn’t just make alkaline water that is great for you to drink. Our award-winning machines can also make acidic turbo water that is pretty good for using around your house as well!
If you suffer from mild acne, eczema or a similar skin condition, then being gentle with your skin and using a soft approach can be very effective.
Skin Problems? You’re Not Alone.
With around 60 million Americans suffering from acne, and 32 million people in the US experiencing symptoms of eczema – if you do have outbreaks yourself, then you’re not alone!
Always follow the advice of your doctor or healthcare provider about any treatment and products you may need for your own symptoms, but it’s worth thinking about how we wash our skin and more specifically, the water we shower and bathe in.
So, we know that greens are good for us and why; but what makes the sunny side of the fruit bowl so nutritious?
Sunny and Scrumptious!
So much of our favorite fresh, delicious produce comes in the glorious colors of the sunrise and sunset. From the cheery, zingy looks of citrus and the warm hue of mango and peaches, to the rich autumnal glow of squash and bright buttery corn — it all looks and tastes great!
What’s in Them?
So what exactly is packed into these brilliantly-colored foods that makes them so good for us?
Now don’t get us wrong, we’re often in favor of ditching the chemicals and trying out a natural alternative. Dropping the foaming agent SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and potentially dangerous parabens in regular shampoo might be worth a try, but what do you replace them with?
Co-Wash For Curlies
Some people go down the co-washing route; skipping the shampoo altogether and washing their hair using conditioner. It can have spectacular results on certain hair types (curlies blessed with coarse, thick hair often love it), but it’s definitely not for everyone.
Soda and Silicones
So how about washing your hair with baking soda? It’s not exactly new…your grandmother might well have tried it! The …
We all know that we need to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables to stay healthy. Although most types of frozen, canned and dried produce count towards your daily total, nothing beats the taste of fresh, seasonal fruit and veggies.
What’s On Our Veggies?
But have you wondered about how those lovely tomatoes, salad leaves and bell peppers are produced? If you buy organic or grow your own, then you can skip this. However, if – like so many of us – you tend to grab what’s on offer or looks great in the store display or farmer’s market, then read on.
Did you know that much of the deliciously tempting produce on offer is …
Did you know that your hair is acidic? True story. Whether it’s short, curly, bedhead or a glossy mane: hair has a pH range of around 4 – 5.
Natural Balance and Bad Hair Days
When a shampoo is advertised as being “pH balanced,” it means that it has a similar pH to your hair. Great right? That means that you’re not throwing out the natural balance of your crowning glory with nasty ol’ chemical shampoos?
Maybe not, but what about your water? Most tap water sits between a neutral pH of around 7 and a more alkaline 8.5. Rinsing your hair with water that isn’t pH balanced – even if your shampoo is…
In a recent blog, we looked at the dangers of using chemical cleaners around the home and how Turbo water from your water ionizer can do the job just as well, without any toxic fumes.
What Kind of Spring-Cleaner Are You?
Many people like to carry out a spring clean at this time of year. For some, it’s little more than bundling away winter coats and shoes; for others, it means systematically going through each room, carrying out a deep clean and throwing out or recycling whatever isn’t nailed down (Hi, Mom!).
Tyent Spring-Cleaning Tips!
To get you into the spring-cleaning spirit, we’ve dusted down and buffed up some brilliant …
