Thanksgiving holiday appliance adventures and safety tips

Yes, it’s that time again.  Whether you call it Thanksgiving, “Turkey Day”, “That Day To Watch Football”, “The Day I Have to Spend With The In-laws I Hate” or something else, it’s only a few days away.

While the holiday will go just swell for many or most, there are going to be just a few folks who have their holiday interrupted by some sort of appliance adventure.  While not intended to be all-inclusive, I hope the following tips will help some navigate the big weekend without any problems.

Clogged disposals such as the one above are one heck of a nuisance.  While there can surely be problems past the disposal causing its backup, foreign objects represent a majority of the clogs.  Avoid placing the following in your disposal, and stay ahead of the game:  grease, hair, coffee grounds, carrots, broccoli stalks, corn cobs, potato peels, aquarium rocks Yes, I’ve seen it done!

Dishwasher issues.  While cases like this do present the perfect “Well, the floor needed a good mopping anyway” moment, they’re no fun to discover as you arrive home.  Likely cause?  Pump issues, clogged drain past the dishwasher…or one of the items from the disposal list above has found its way to the bottom of the dishwasher and jacked up the filter basket.  Along with the disposal list, one should also avoid putting chicken bones, olive pits and toothpicks in the dishwasher.

Lastly, I’d be remiss if I failed to mention dryer safetySimply put, dryer lint can kill.  Keep you and yours safe this holiday season by ensuring your dryer is connected properly, and that both it’s lint trap and all of it’s venting is clear.

May you have a safe, healthy and Happy Thanksgiving!

O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever– Psalm 107:1 (KJV)
