Bathrooms are usually one of the smallest rooms in our homes. These rooms retain heat and moisture from not only the shower but lightbulbs. Old fashioned lightbulbs not only use too much energy but they produce too much heat for such a small space without us even knowing it. To fix this problem buy energy efficient light bulbs for every light fixture in your home. Consumer Reports studies have shown that the top rated energy efficient brands for bulbs are Eco Smart, GE energy smart, Phillips Energy Saver, and Feit Eco bulbs. For a complete listing of the reviews of these bulbs and many more check out the Consumer reports magazine for October 2010.
So the next time you are brushing your teeth or applying your makeup in the bathroom, reach up and place your hand a few inches away (NOT DIRECTLY ON) from the bulb and see how much heat your lightbulbs are producing. The next smart move would be to go to your local hardware store and stock up on Eco friendly light bulbs to save you money in the long run and reduce your sweating in the bathroom.

Take a moment and look inside your washing machine. If you have a front loader open the door and look in the creases of the opening where the rubber part meets the door. If you have a top loader bend down and look right under the rim. I am 100% sure that you see scum. A dirty washing machine cannot really clean clothes properly. The build up is made of detergents, fabric softeners, and old dirt that has stuck to the detergents. To clean your washing machine first get a clean damp rag and tooth brush and scrub the creases inside and around the rim of the machine. You will find gunk that will gross you out for sure. Take the soap dispensers out where you fill your detergents and fabric softeners then scrub the film out. Finally run an empty load by using vinegar instead of detergent. Let the water clean the machine without soap and see how much soap actually forms while this load is rinsing. Once the empty cycle is done re wipe out the crevices and now you are ready to actually wash clothes and know that they are clean.

I have noticed that Lysol had recently put on the market a non touch soap dispenser. It is the first one of it’s kind that is in the price range of under $20 (around $10 if you can find coupons). I do not like the harsh Lysol soap but the dispenser is a great idea. I bought a non touch soap dispenser from Bed Bath and Beyond from the common household brand Simple Human. Its cost was around $20 to $40 depending on the size. You add your own soap to the dispenser and batteries then place your hand under the dispenser and soap automatically comes out in just the right amount. It reminds me of the non touch system in the public restrooms. It would be awesome if I could find a faucet dispenser for this price range, my bathrooms and kitchen hand washing station would be a germ free zone. The handle on the kitchen and bathroom sinks and soap dispensers get extremely grimy and full of germs. They are the first things we go to grab before washing hands and the last things we touch after we wash our hands. So are we defeating the cleansing purpose? Not if we have a non touch soap and water dispenser!! I recommend buying and kind of non touch soap dispenser and adding your own eco friendly hand soap.
