Down the Drain

Avoid throwing cooking oil down the sink.  Kitchen grease and cooking oil are a major cause of clogged sewer pipes. 

Smelly Fridge...

Instead of using chemical cleaners and disinfectants, just toss in your citrus peels.  The peels absorb strong odours while releasing natural fragrances..that will help with that smelly fridge.

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.

Dyer

Keep an eye on the dryer.  Empty the lint filter on your dryer with each load so the dryer is more efficient, safer and uses less energy.

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.
