HELPFUL BATHROOM TIPS


  • Once a week run hot water down the drain to help keep it free-flowing.
  • Repair leaky faucets to avoid further damage to the fixtures and faucets.
  • Tubs and showers should be fitted with strainers that catch hair and soap chips. Clean the strainers regularly.
  • To remove unsightly mineral deposits on your shower head, put one cup of vinegar in a plastic bag and place it over the shower head. Hold it in place with a twist tie and let stand overnight. In the morning, remove the bag and wipe off the mineral deposits with a damp cloth.
  • Do not use your toilet as a wastebasket. Do not flush facial tissues, sanitary products or diapers as they do not dissolve and can clog the lines. Keep a trash container in each bathroom.

HELPFUL KITCHEN TIPS


  • Never put hard-to-grind, stringy or fibrous waste (poultry skins, carrots, celery or banana peels) into the garbage disposer.
  • Run cold water down the drain for 15 seconds before and after using the garbage disposal to flush waste through the line.
  • Don't pour liquid grease down the drain. Wipe congealed grease from pots and pans with a paper towel and dispose of in the trash.
