Tip #2: Safety First
|Hows That for a Slice of Fried Gold?|
Not only were many modern conveniences becoming commonplace in my youth, my family could generally afford them. And the same can be said for SO and me. At the same time, the wisdom of conservation began to take root in my childhood, which makes me proud.
I do feel environmentalism is now a religion burdened with some true fanatics. Now the consumer takes a back seat to it. I’m not saying that’s all bad, but there are limits.
On that note, I have finally gotten to my tip for the week. ~gets off soapbox~ Are you familiar with the option to run an electric dishwasher cycle without the heat dried finish?
Sounds good, doesn’t it? Save electricity, a few bucks over the (many long) years, and the planet while you’re at it.
But there’s one thing nobody bothered to tell me. That accumulating wetness eventually leads to black mildew at the bottom of your appliance.
I think we can all agree that isn’t healthy. So I implore you to either use the heated dry option on at least a semi regular basis or make a point of sanitizing inside your dishwashing machine now and then.
Are you familiar with the dangers of black mold infiltrating the walls of buildings?
