Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day – Today is the official day to clean out any expired containers in your refrigerator. With Thanksgiving a couple of weeks away and more holiday entertaining around the corner, there’s no better time to celebrate the event. Not sure where to start?
Start by cleaning out the expired or empty condiment containers in the door. Then work your way down shelf by shelf tossing mystery meats and those vegetables you never ate. Wipe down the shelves with hot water and baking soda. Don’t forget to clean out the drawers! Now your refrigerator is prepared for a whole new batch of leftovers. In addition to the inside, cleaning the condenser coils a couple times of year will ensure that it runs more efficiently.
Besides being close to the biggest food holiday of the year, Nov. 15 was also significant in the engineering field. In “1886, Robert Bosch established a ‘Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering’ in Stuttgart, Germany, laying the foundation for what has become a leading global supplier of technology and services” according to Bosch, a home appliance company focusing on efficient and modern design.
Now that you’re in the cleaning mode and mood, clean out closets, junk drawers and magazine holders. On America Recycles Day make a concerted effort to start recycling regularly and to buy recycled when you can. Take the pledge here. Some things, like paper, glass and plastic are easier to recycle than others.
