- Dry cleaning solvents can be toxic to breathe. Let dry-cleaned items air outdoors before bringing them inside to prevent chemicals from entering your home.
- During the winter, colder temperatures force many to keep windows tightly closed, which means you’re living and breathing in a tightly sealed environment. Find the best defense against poor indoor air quality.
- Water heating usually accounts for about 25% of the energy consumed in your home. Turn down your water to a warm temperature setting. Not only will this save you energy but you’ll avoid scalding your hands.
