Did you know that less than 1% of all the water on earth can be used by humans? The rest is either salt (ocean) water or ice, both of which are unavailable for drinking and daily use. This means fresh water a limited resource that is continuously being used up. It is vital that we do what we can to conserve water, wasting as little as possible.

In the last blog, we talked about some problems that many of us have experienced or will experience with our washers and dryers. We discussed what to do if your washing machine is giving off an odor, how to level your washing machine if it is shaking or rattling during its spin cycle, and how to get your dryer to work more effectively.
In this blog, we will address the replacement of washing machine hoses and tips for keeping your washer and dryer running efficiently for as long as possible. Addressing these kinds of issues promptly rather than waiting for them to turn in to larger problems can save you money on maintenance and appliance replacement.
It’s easy to take your washer and dryer for granted, and making sure they are maintained regularly probably isn’t at the top of your to-do list. Nevertheless, just taking a little bit of time to make sure they are working properly could extend the lives of both of these machines, saving you the hassle of dealing with major repairs or having to spend the money to purchase new ones. Many of us have either experienced or most likely will experience common problems at some point, but the solutions to these problems may be simpler than you think.
There are many ways to be “green,” and many of them are probably simpler than you think.

The best ways to be eco-friendly are the little and inexpensive things that we can do, such as cutting down on what we consume daily and recycling whenever we can. By making small changes in our habits at home, we will be able to make a difference in the community, the environment, and ultimately, the planet.
