Throwback Thursday: News Recap September 3, 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:
  • Eat Drink Better explained how to clean refrigerator coils. LINK
  • The Napa Valley Register checked in with their suggestions for refrigerator organization. LINK
  • There was some advice for installing a washing machine and gas dryer from the Las Vegas Review Journal. LINK
  • Kitchen Conservation had some tips to use up practically any leftover. LINK
  • University approved laundry programs are happening for freshmen. LINK
  • If your washing machine has stopped working, this article gives a few tips on staying fresh. LINK
  • Consumer Reports checked in with their recommendations for dealing with those smelly camp and sports clothes. LINK
Next, we look at the manufacturers and how they have been in the news recently:
  • Workers at the Roper factory have concerns about the possible sale of GE's appliance division. LINK
  • With Quirky out of the picture, Electrolux emerges as GE's main suitor. LINK
We found several articles that might be of interest to those of you who love all thing appliances:
  • California's drought conditions have called for massive water conservation. Experts recommend reusing dishwater to water plants. Dishwashers aren't generally designed for that, which is problem for this Fresno Bee columnist. LINK
Sometimes, the links we post are related to technology, business or happenings on the internet:
  • Handyman Club explained why isn't there just one screwdriver for all applications. LINK
  • Handyman Club of America had a history of toolcases. LINK
  • In the rush to get Internet connected appliances to the market, the BBC hopes that manufacturers remember security. LINK
We close with a few stories that are just for fun:
  • 22Words posted a kid doing a pretty good spider man impersonation. Then he goes one step further. Pretty amazing! LINK
  • From Thailand comes this colorful and artistic Frigidaire ad. Don't worry, language is not an issue with this one. LINK
