Throwback Thursday: News Recap November 7, 2014

If you have been reading the W.L. May Blog but haven't checked us out on FacebookTwitter or Google+, you may not be getting the whole story. We use all of those social media outlets to share news stories that relate to our industry as well as appliance tips we have found from other sources. Here is a recap of some of the top stories we have seen lately. A lot has been happening so without further ado:

We start with some consumer friendly articles we feel would be great for sharing:
  • CTV jumped on the "scary things about your appliances" bandwagon that seems to roll out around Halloween. Link
  • In a less "scary" vein, Fort Wayne Journal Gazette had some helpful tips for cleaning appliances. Link
  • Buffalo News pondered the old classic "repair or replace" question. Link
  • Tribune-Review shared their cleaning tips to eliminate germs in the kitchen. Link
  • Ask Anna gave some instructions for cleaning stainless steel. Link 
  • Sears site My Managed Life gave advice for avoiding appliance "disasters" during the Holiday Season. Link
  • Home Advisor shared some tips for fixing a "leaking" refrigerator. Link
  • Style Caser showed some items to be machine washable, despite their "dry clean only" label. Link
Next, we look at the manufacturers and how they have been in the news recently:
  • Whirlpool introduced the Everydrop water filter. Able to go anywhere this is a great looking product and we have them on hand for you to try. Link
  • There was some bad news about Whirlpool September sales.  Link
  • GE also suffered a little bit of a set back. Link
We found several articles that might be of interest to those of you who love all thing appliances:
  • New Philadelphia Times-Reporter told the story of how a washing machine was invented by a pastor, because 'Cleanliness is next to Godliness". Link
  • Country Life shared some usual uses for dishwashers. Link
  • Fire /EMS Blogs showed how they use old refrigerators for condfined area training for Fire fighters and EMT. Best use for an old appliance we have seen yet. Link
  • The Tomahawk told us how "laundry day" was in the times before the automatic washing machine. Link
  • For $100,000 you could have this music box set that actually comes in a refrigerator. (No really, we can't make this stuff up!) Link
  • KERO Bakersfield shed some light on why today's stainless isn't the same as it used to be. Link
Sometimes, the links we post are related to technology, business or happenings on the internet:
  • Vertical Response Blog shared some tips for social media promotions. Link
  • CyberBiz described a scenario where smart appliances could cause trouble on the internet. Link
  • Forbes talked about the virtual trail we leave behind us in some modern vehicles. Link
We close with a couple of fun stories:
  • TribToday.Com posed the question: An alien offers you a Magic Washing Machine that automatically washes, dries, folds and puts away all your laundry for the rest of your life. But you need to give up 10 points of your IQ. Do you take the deal? The writer has his own solution to the dilemna. Link
  • Seattle Home Inspector, Charles Buell  suggested he would rather appliances uses names rather than  model numbers. Link
