Throwback Thursday: News Recap February 27, 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:
  • Consumer Reports explains why newer dishwashers need to have the filter cleaned periodically. LINK
  • There comes a time in every refrigerators life where a little TLC and cleaning can give it a whole new look. LINK
  • ABC13 gives us recipes for homemade laundry and dishwasher detergents. LINK
  • The Morning Call shares a few of the common maintenance issues on modern appliances. LINK
Next, we look at the manufacturers and how they have been in the news recently:
  • Using technology that has been around since the 1800's, GE is developing a refrigerator that cools by using magnetism for its heat transfer. LINK
We found several articles that might be of interest to those of you who love all thing appliances:
  • Peter Fabor offers his simplified washing machine control panel and hopes some manufacturer adopts his design. LINK
  • If you like rock and roll and beer then here is the refrigerator for you. LINK
  • The blog "And Everything Else Too" has some great pictures from a 1941 Frigidaire booklet. LINK
Sometimes, the links we post are related to technology, business or happenings on the internet:
  • This article talks about how a small family winery has had success doing social media on a shoestring budget. And as a fun bonus, the post has a clip with an unusual way of opening a bottle of wine. LINK
  • The Star featured one of the best uses for "Smart Appliance" technology we have seen yet. LINK
We close with a few fun stories:
  • After 66 years, a refrigerator can become practically part of the family. LINK
  • Juan Pablo from "The Bachelor" has some apparent ties to the appliance business. LINK
