How to Childproof your Electric Fan with just 25 Bucks

Just head to a fabric store, ask for the cheapest tulle, get a yard, wrap the cloth around your fan and secure using a sipit. Voila! You have just childproof-ed our electric fan. In the Los Banos wet market, tulle sells for as low as 25 bucks. Here in Manila, I have seen tulles sell for as much as 200 pesos. Well, that was in Shangri-la Mall. So, it is best to shop around so you can get the best deals. It does not matter if the tulle is rough or heavy. What is important is that those precious little fingers won’t be able to get near the blades.

P.S. You may have noticed that my recent posts are short. I have a lot of text-and-photo heavy drafts in my head but those have to wait because I have an internal target of 25 posts a month, that I need to reach by tomorrow. 🙂

P.S.S. I dedicate this very late post to my mommy friends, Maggie, Marsy, Khaye and Sha  who have one year olds. Good luck!
