    Work in the garden does not paint the hands. More precisely, he paints, but not at all in the color that he would like to see. For several years now I have been experiencing different ways to keep the skin and nails clean.

    The well-known method of "lemon slice" - it is enough to rub your hands, nails and under the nails, after the main dirt is washed with soap and leave it directly on the skin. Yes, citric acid quickly brightened all the pores and cracks ... but the nails after such an execution began to exfoliate and break. This may be an individual reaction, but I had to look for an alternative.

    Red Ribes! When it is, the problem of dirty hands for me does not exist. It is enough to rub the brush of berries in the hands - and they are clean again. It acts even better than lemon, as it does not dry the skin of the hands. Therefore, every year I leave part of the crop on the bush - exclusively for hygienic purposes.

    When my savior is not yet ripe, I use the leaves of sorrel or rhubarb (not often, so as not to dry the skin): dirt and even tomato greens leave without problems. And sometimes I arrange garden paraffin therapy: I smear my hands with paraffin, put on thin plastic gloves, and on top - ordinary garden gloves. I work for two hours at my pleasure - and the skin of my hands is clean, soft and smooth. And they also advised me such a recipe: mix 100 ml of 3% hydrogen peroxide and 10-20 ml of ammonia, add any liquid soap. In this solution, lower your hands after work, and the darkened cracks will again become light. Well, then just grease your hands with fat cream.

    On the shoots of red currant appeared plaques and white patina, similar to mucus. There is no such bloom on the berries and leaves.
    Is it dangerous for the plant?

    • OOO "Sad"

      - The willow shchitok lodged on your currant. These pests suck juices from the shoots of currants, gooseberries, which for several years weaken and may even die. A similar situation develops when the bushes are populated with acacia false shield. These pests have a kind of shelter - shield, which consists of larval skins and wax. Larvae hatch from the eggs hibernating under the shields during the currant flowering period (they are called vagrants). They crawl along the branches into which they insert their proboscis to feed on the sap of the plants. Control measures

      Cut out the shoots now populated with shields, and burn them immediately. For the future: for prevention, spud the bushes in October with soil (and in the spring after the snow melted, remove these mounds of land).
      In the spring before flowering, treat the plants with a Lepidocide biopreparation or an insecticide (Kin-mix, Colorado, Mo-Spilan, Tanrek, Fu-fanon). It is important not just to spray, but to immerse the branches directly in the bucket with the composition.
      It is safer to remove the already attached adult female scales by hand using a toothbrush, cotton pad or sponge soaked in soapy water.
