Small Appliances
  • Read labels--use voracious energy users sparingly.
  • Keep heat-conducting appliances out of drafts.
  • Use hand can openers, mixers, ect. when possible.
  • Vacuum & polish only when necessary. Keep vacuum bag emptied to avoid suction reduction.
  • Reduce operation of garbage grinders.

    Keep refrigerator grills and coils clean.
  • Run dishwasher only when full, using the shortest possible cycle that gets dishes clean.
    Open door and let dishes air dry.
