Think about this

If you're already taking environmentally friendly steps at home, it's a natural extension to take similar measures at work, both to save energy and to create a healthier workspace environment. Making the environment more pleasant for yourself, more energy efficient, and more eco-friendly will increase your enjoyment of the workplace and lessen its impact on the environment as a whole.

Grease hard to get off your stove

It doesn't matter how careful we are, when we cook we can get grease on our stove tops. Untreated, this can be a nightmare when we go to clean it. You can scrap it off, but your going to end up with unsightly scratches. Removing it the gentlest way you can is the best way to go. You can try some tips I have:

Mix 2 tsp. of dish soap into 1 cup of warm water.

Dip a sponge into the soapy water. Wipe the sponge over the grease stain until the stain is saturated.

  • 4
    Allow the soap mix to sit on the stains for at least 15 minutes. Apply more soapy water as needed to keep the stains damp.

  • 5
    Sprinkle baking soda over the dampened grease spots and scrub the area with a damp sponge.

  • 6
    Dip a clean cloth in white vinegar. Rinse the area with that cloth to eliminate leftover soap and grease.

    Vents for your Roof

    Roof vents are devices that allow the moisture in a house to escape, which prevents the growth of mold and mildew. Roof vents also help to keep wood rot, which is a form of fungal decay, from developing in the house. Roof vents are made of plastic or metal, and are also known as turbine vents. You can buy the materials needed to install a roof vent at a home improvement or hardware store.

    Deer in the Yard

    If you live in the country or even by woods, you have deer in your yard. They are pretty aren't they. But to be hones they are very destructive, and they don't need to be in your yard or your garden. Lawnmowers, they are not, but they will eat everything but your grass, isn't that a kick.

    You can help keep them out with a few tricks. Like spreading hair in your garden. Get different hair from family members. The human scent will keep the deer away. Put some hair in a old stocking and hang it in the garden will also help to.

    Get your self some hot peppers and make a spray, this will help keep them away from plants.

    Also do some searching for plants that deer do not like and plant them as a border in your yard and your garden.

    Remember to, don't feed the deer, this will only make them and more come.
