Q. How often should I clean my dryer vents?
A. It depends on how long your vents run to the outside of the building, but generally it is suggested you at least inspect, if not clean, them once a year.

Q. I have a glass smooth top range. What are the best pots and pans to use and how do I keep it clean?
A. Get good quality (preferably stainless steel) thick, flat bottomed pots and pans. A solid bottomed pan will conduct the heat properly from your cooktop. Cleaning is made simple if you use Whirlpool stove top polish, it shines your cooktop like waxing your car and is very easy to use.
