Clean a Grubby Microwave with Lemon Water

Deodorize Your Stinky Disposer with Citrus

If your disposer has developed an odor, it may contain bits of rotten food. Here’s how to clean them out:

Erase Scuff Marks with a Tennis Ball

Clean off shoe scuff marks from vinyl flooring with a clean, dry tennis ball. A light rub and heel marks are ‘erased.’

Quit Buying Expensive Coffee

If you brew your coffee at home, the cost is around 30 cents a cup. A Keurig Coffeemaker cost per cup will be around 60 cents but it's still cheaper than buying from a coffee shop.

Buying coffee from your favorite barista every day adds up quickly!

Do the math... $5 per latte 5 days a week is $25 a week. That's $100 per month or $.60 per day 5 days a week is $3.00 or $12.00 per month.

In which Direction Should My Ceiling Fan Spin?

Help your home stay cool in summer or warm in winter just by flipping a switch.

 A ceiling fan help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

 What Direction in Summer?

Your ceiling fan should spin counterclockwise during the summer months. A ceiling fan that spins counterclockwise forces air downward, providing cooling relief when it’s hot. It’s recommended to run the fan faster the hotter it gets to increase the cooling airflow.

 What Direction in Winter?

Conversely, the ceiling fan needs to spin clockwise during the winter months. A ceiling fan that spins clockwise will draw cooler air up and force warmer air near the ceiling down and out toward the walls. It’s best to run the fan at a low speed so that it doesn’t create too much of a cooling breeze.
