Refrigerator Scratches

Cover a scratch on a refrigerator or freezer door with enamel paint. First, clean with detergent and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Test the color on an unseen area, and retouch with a fine brush.

Lint Removal

Clean the lint filter in the clothes dryer after every load to improve air circulation. Remember to regularly clean the lint from vent hoods, too.

Dishwasher Efficiency

Remember that dishwashers use less water than washing dishes by hand, about 6 gallons less per load; dishwashers also use hotter water than you would use if you were washing the dishes by hand, so they can do a better job of killing germs.

Heat vs. Air-Drying

Look for a dishwasher that allows you to choose between heat-drying and air-drying. Heath-drying elements draw considerable electricity; circulation fans for air-drying use very little.
