LED Discounts at Duke Energy

Out with the old and in with the new; making the switch from regular bulbs to energy-efficient light bulbs is easier than ever!

Did you know that each LED bulb can save you more than roughly $80 in energy costs over their lifetime? Duke Energy Progress is also offering up to 75% off at select retail locations. 

Why an LED you might ask? They're just as bright as a standard bulb, but use less wattage, use up to 90% less energy, and they can last up to 15x longer than a standard bulb. 

Click this energy calculator link to find out how much you can save by switching to LED bulbs! 

Smart Newspaper Uses

If you have some extra newspapers lying around and don't know what to do with them, we're here to help!

As the weather begins to get nice enough to where you don't need to be SO bundled up, a newspaper is a great firestarter for your outdoor firepit. For really good-smelling results, roll some cinnamon sticks and orange peels up in the newspaper! 

When wiping down your windows or mirrors, have you noticed that paper towels often leave streaks? Instead, use newspaper with your regular cleaner for a streak-free shine. 

Keep your boots upright by rolling up a newspaper and placing them in your shoes. Now they won't be some floppy mess by the door or take up any extra room in your closet. 

Personally, I hate it when I go to take the trash out and some random liquid starts dropping out of the bottom into the can. To help the mess and make for an easier cleanup, add layers of newspaper to the bottom of your trash can to help absorb any moisture!

Hydrogen Peroxide Hacks

Image result for hydrogen peroxide clipart

You know that large container of hydrogen peroxide sitting underneath one of your cabinets somewhere? Do you ever wonder how on earth you'll use it all before it expires?

Well here are 5 household hacks for you!

  1. Cutting Boards: Remove any stains by scrubbing your cutting boards with a clean sponge, wait till it fizzes, and then give it a good rinse! 
  2. Grout Whitener: Make a paste with a 3:1 mixture of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to scrub your grout with a bristle sponge. Wipe it off with a wet rag and voila!
  3. Carpet Stains: Tough stains on your carpet or rug? Pour some hydrogen peroxide on it and let it sit for a few minutes, gently wipe it off with a dry sponge, and it should be good as gone! 
  4. Soap Scum: This time, create a 2:1 mixture of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide then use this paste to scrub away and scum in your shower or bathtub. 
  5. Toilet Cleaner: Don't feel like buying more Clorox bleach? Pour one cup of hydrogen peroxide into your toilet, let it sit for 15 minutes, scrub, and flush!

By now I'm sure we have all heard of the new fad: chunky, wool-knit blankets. There's no sense in spending hundreds of dollars online on one though when you could easily click on the HGTV link here and learn how to make your own in less than 1 hour! All you'll need is somewhere between 6 to 8 pounds of yarn which can easily be purchased off Etsy, Amazon or even eBay!

Once you've finished, post a picture and tag us online; we would love to see your final product!
