Don`t throw away old cushions, pillows, blankets or towels.  They can be donated to the Humane Society for use as bedding and for bathing the animals in their care.  Now You Know!

Oven Use

Evaluate your oven use.  Do you really need to heat the oven or could you utilize a toaster oven or sandwich maker...this small change will save on electricity.  Now you know!

Phantom Electricity

Eliminate phantom electricity.   Put appliances such at TVs, DVD players and microwaves on a power bar.  When you go on vacation or travel for more than a few days, you can actually turn them off and save a lot of electricity.

No Brainer

Tip:  Turn off the faucet.  A single dripping hot water faucet can waster 802 Litres of water a month and increases your gas or electric bill for heating the water.  Now you know.

A word about washer types


 Front-loaders use less water than top-loaders but typically have longer wash cycles—some take 100 minutes or more. That's not the end of the world, but it may be the beginning of laundry pile-up. Since front-loaders use less water, the detergent is more concentrated and the machine's tumbling action can also help boost cleaning. Manufacturers recommend using HE detergent—that's high efficiency—for front-loaders and HE top-loaders. Regular detergents are too sudsy for these machines.

microwave safe

Be cautious of microwave safe plastic containers and plastic wrap.   The words only guarantee that the plastic won`t melt or crack in the microwave, not that they won`t leak chemicals into food.

Washing Machine use

Use a cycle and load-adjustable washing machine.  When buying a new washing machine, consider those that offer cycle and load size adjustments.  They`re more water and energy efficient.

Lemon Power

Lemon Power.  Lemons are 5 percent citric acid and can be used for a variety of cleaning and home uses.  Dilute 60ml lemon juice in two litres of water as a glass cleaner.  While straight lemon juice can be used as a degreaser.  Now You Know!

Drain Pans Needed

Is your washing machine or water heater old and weak? A potential mess just waiting to leak? The new products you see in new construction model homes often take years to hit the remodel and repair market, and when they do arrive, homeowners are often just as slow to buy them and to include them in their plans. One such idea available now that's often overlooked are drain pans that go under clothes washers and water heaters that can catch and drain water leaks to the outside. If a water heater is located anywhere other than the basement, drain pans are a must. Damage resulting from such a leak can often cost more than buying a new appliance. So, when it comes time to replace one or both appliances, include drain pans in your purchase. If either sits upstairs in your home today, be aware they present a potential leak and mess. It's best to add braided, stainless water hoses, too.
