  1. Does putting lemons in your disposal to make it smell fresh a good idea?
  2. Lemony scent will succeed in briefly create a fresher aroma, but the citric acid from lemons corrodes the metal inside your disposal.
    The Better Alternative: Use ice to polish your disposal up inside, which works just like a rock tumbler polishing rocks; it’s noisy, but it works. Scum causes the odor from the drain so clean it up without ruining your disposal.

  3. Will “In Tank” cleaners clean my toilet leaving it sparkling and odor free?
  4. Spending money on “in tank” cleaners marketed to make your chores easier and decrease the time you spend scrubbing your toilet is one cost you can cut. These products bleach smelly build-up white, but don’t get rid of it. Eventually, the build-up can ruin your toilet.
    The Better Alternative: Use vinegar down the overflow tube. Vinegar removes smelly build-up that can damage the flow of your toilet for a fraction of the cost.

  5. Is plain soap and water a good solution to keeping my bathroom fixture clean and in new condition?
  6. You wash your hands at the sink and when you turn off the faucet, you leave a bit of soapy water on it. No big deal, right? Wrong! Soap and water cause faucets and fixtures to corrode, making them peel and bubble.
    The Better Alternative: Wipe the fixtures off after use. This takes an extra second, but it will help prevent your fixtures from corroding. This will also protect your lifetime warranties on products, which are void when soap has rotted the finish.

  7. How do I weatherize my pipe to prevent freezing?
  8. Since most of your water pipes are located outside or under your home, it is important to keep them protected so they will not freeze during the winter. Preventing water pipes from freezing is much less costly and time consuming than having to hire someone to repair them if they freeze and burst.
      Step 1
    • Start early in the spring or summer preparing your pipes for the winter. It is much easier to do it when it is warm outside then waiting until cold weather has arrived.
    • Step 2
    • Insulated wrap. Wrap pipes with an insulated cover. This is available at the local hardware store. You may want to use plastic on the outside of the insulated wrap for extra protection.
    • Step 3
    • Buy a heated cord made especially for water pipes. You can then wrap it around the pipes and when the weather is below freezing plug in the electric cord to prevent water pipes from freezing and bursting.
    • Step 4
    • Drip. Leave a water faucet dripping. Depending on the temperature and how likely you are to have freezing pipes, make sure it is a steady drip or a stream.
    • Step 5
    • Install a no freeze water faucet for outside use. These can be found at your local store as well. They allow the water to drain from the pipe so the faucet does not freeze.
    • Step 6
    • Cover outside faucets with plastic and buckets. They also make a faucet cover you can use if you would like. As long as the wind and cold are blocked, hopefully your water pipes will not freeze

    While during extreme temperatures it is hard to guarantee your pipes will not freeze, best to take the time to limit your pipe exposure to the elements.
