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:

  • Considering a built in refrigerator but no room in the budget? Maybe this Ikea solution is for you! LINK
  • Thinking about fixing it yourself after watching a few YouTube videos? Consider the results this reporter got-you might want to hire a tech! LINK
