House Maintenance.

3 May

We learned lots of great tips on home maintenance and green cleaning thanks to Dina from BrightNest today.  Some highlights are below, but visit for lots more!  BrightNest is free to register if you wish to receive maintenance and organization reminders and articles.  You can also just browse the different sections on the site.  It’s easy to pin articles if you’re on Pinterest.

  • Download the app Paper Karma to snap a picture of your junk mail and to be removed from that company’s list.
  • To save water in your toilet, place a 20 ounce plastic bottle filled with rock into the tank to displace a small amount of water each time it’s flushed.
  • Clean your dishwasher’s food trap to keep it cleaning efficiently.
  • Clean the dryer duct (hose that attaches to the wall) at least annually to minimize fire risk and to use energy more efficiently.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher on each level of your home.
