Rumor has it that there’s a new restaurant opening in Three Rivers. It’s name is “Karma”. They don’t have a menu, so you get what you deserve.
Spring is the season when we all usually do a major cleaning around the house. However, there are certain items around the house that should be cleaned on a regular basis. Besides the normal dusting and vacuuming, here are three items that should be shown attention:

  • Coffee Maker. Microbiologists found 67 different types of bacteria in the drip trays of kitchen coffee makers. By cleaning these, you won’t just prevent illness, but it might also improve the flavor of your morning “Go Juice”. The extra cleaning should be done after every 100 pots of coffee. If you buy packets of 100 coffee filters, you might clean the unit whenever you open a new container of filters.
  • Dishwasher. Dishwashers may contain bacteria that have been linked to health problems ranging from food poisoning to skin infections. All you need to do is unscrew the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher and scrub the filter once a week. To further clean the dishwasher, fill a cup with white vinegar and run the machine on the normal cycle with hot water.
  • Oven. By scrubbing the burned foods crusted on the bottom of the oven and the grease coating the oven door, the oven will at least look clean. A dirty oven can cause a grease fire.
    All little rhyming jokes aside, don’t be content until you’ve tried BURMA SHAVE
    See you Out and About!
