Have you ever bought what you thought was a good appliance, only to find out from the first repairman visit that if you had asked the repairman what to buy and what not to buy, he never would have recommended what you bought. In fact, he normally won't even work on them.
Have any of you noticed that since July, 2011, your dish washer has been leaving a white residue after its wash cycle? The reason is that Big Brother decided that all dish washer detergent could no longer use phosphate...which was the real cleaning agent. And the industry is still struggling to find an adequate substitute. Rumor has it that hospitals, restaurants and other commercial kitchens can still use dishwashing detergent containing phosphates. We suggest you check out commercial suppliers. We hoarded a 5 year supply of the old stuff.
Fed up with those curly light bulbs that cost more and burn out sooner. The EPA maintains that you must follow a 14 step disposal process because those bulbs contain mercury. The old bulbs did not contain mercury, so why would the EPA expose our children to mercury poisoning? And why did GE close all of their incandescent light bulb plants and sell the equipment to China. GE is a well-known supporter of this administration and its coziness with the eco geniuses. Make sense to you? Not us!
