Clean a Grubby Microwave with Lemon Water
Here’s how: Partially fill a measuring or coffee cup with water and add a slice of lemon. Boil the water in the microwave for a minute, and then leave the door closed and let the steam loosen the mess. After 10 minutes, open the door and wipe away the grime.
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:
With the water running at about half throttle, drop in orange or lemon peels. Run the disposer for five seconds. Citric acid from the peels softens crusty waste and attacks smelly bacteria. Give the acid about 15 minutes to do its work.
Turn on the water and the disposer and drop in a few ice cubes. Flying shards of ice work like a sandblaster inside the disposer.
Run the water until the bowl is about half full. Then pull the stopper and turn on the disposer to flush it out.

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.
