HOME IMPROVEMENT TIPS

Create your Dream Green Kitchen

Today's newly remodeled kitchens boast more than just rich hues and shiny appliances - they have an eco-conscious ambiance that marries great style with respect for the environment. Dreaming of a fresh, modern kitchen that is also eco-friendly and strikingly beautiful? Achieving this transformation is more attainable than you may think. Environmental lifestyle expert, Danny Seo, provides these helpful tips on how to add earth-friendly updates to your kitchen:

Refrigerator When searching for a new refrigerator, be sure to look for more than just the Energy Star label to ensure maximum energy efficiency. It is also important the new appliance fits your needs and the size of your kitchen. A larger refrigerator uses more energy. If the one you select is too big for your needs, you will be wasting energy and money.

Blocked wood countertops With their rugged durability and timeless style, butcher block countertops are making a huge comeback. Though typically made from cherry, walnut and oak, greener options, such as high pressure laminate designs made by Wilsonart, can contribute to US Green Building Council LEED accreditation as an eco-friendly material to use in your home. Home Improvement Magazine - Page 8


Flooring For a more sustainable approach to kitchen flooring, there are several options available. If you love the hard, classic appeal of wood, look for reclaimed, recycled or sustainably sourced materials. Bamboo is also a beloved choice among eco-conscious remodelers for its biodegradable nature and high renewability. "Going green at home can be overwhelming, so I always advise people to not sweat the small stuff and focus on the one room of the house where it matters the most: the kitchen," says Seo. "Being kind to the planet in the kitchen can also be kind on your wallet over time, so it's worth it to invest in sustainable upgrades."

Backsplash Recycled materials are the star of the show when looking to add green touches to your backsplash. There are three main types of recycled materials: ceramic, metal and glass. Old bottles and windows make up the materials in glass tile; old plates and clay vases are recycled to become ceramic tile; and those old soda cans become aluminum metal tile. All of these materials come in a variety of shades and styles to fit the look of your dream kitchen. Adding in a new laminate countertop, such as those made by Wilsonart, will complete the look when combined with a beautiful new backsplash. Wilsonart Decorative Metals are a great option.

Dishwasher According to the Environmental Protection Agency, using an Energy Star labeled dishwasher is the most efficient use of energy and water, even more so than hand washing. When looking to update your dishwasher, pay close attention to the EnergyGuide labels, which include the annual estimated costs to run them. This valuable information can help you compare models to find the best fit for your family's needs. A dream kitchen that is both eco-friendly and chic is easier to attain than you think. With a few changes not only will you be smiling, but so too will Mother Earth.

HOME IMPROVEMENT TIPS

Prevention of Salmonella this Thanksgiving Thanksgiving is here again, which means turkeys will be the main meal for many American households. It is important to handle your turkey or any other type of poultry very carefully. It may contain Salmonella, a bacteria that can cause food poisoning. Symptoms Usually symptoms are seen in 12–36 hours, but can appear within three hours. Vomiting, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, fever and headache are some common symptoms. Although anyone can be affected, the highest incidence of severe illness occurs in children under 5 and the elderly. Treatment Treatment of food poisoning is as simple as rest and plenty of fluids. If you are afflicted with food poisoning, time is your greatest ally. Fever can be treated with acetaminophen (TylenolTM) or ibuprofen (AdvilTM). Remember that aspirin should never be given to children. The main consideration in treatment is to make sure that young children do not get dehydrated; therefore, maintaing sufficient fluids is critical. In nearly all ill patients, an uneventful recovery can be expected. Prevention The best way to prevent food poisoning is to be careful in the preparation and storage of your holiday turkey and all other foods on the menu. One of the most common ways food can be contaminated is through cross contamination. Food or hands come in contact with raw meat and then come in contact with other food. The best way to prevent this is good hand washing and thoroughly washing of all the utensils used. Another important preventative measure is in the way the turkey is actually stored and prepared. It is important to store the turkey in the refrigerator or freezer as soon as possible after purchasing it. The next step is the thawing of the turkey. The safest way to thaw a turkey is in your refrigerator. That method will take anywhere from three to seven days. Cold water thawing will take approximately 5 – 15 hours. Smaller turkeys can be thawed in a microwave. Never thaw the turkey on the counter. At room temperatures, a frozen turkey will thaw from the outside in. As the surface warms, bacteria can multiply to dangerously high levels. Home Improvement Magazine - Page 16


The actual cooking time varies depending on the size of the turkey. The best way to determine if the turkey is fully cooked is to use a meat thermometer. Poultry is completed cooking when the inserted thermometer reaches 185°F. Another method used is to insert a fork into the thigh or breast and check the juices that flow. If the juices are clear the turkey is done. If you plan to stuff your turkey, do it just prior to roasting. Extra cooking time is required for the stuffing to reach the appropriate temperature of 165°F. The final step to prevent food poisoning from your holiday meal is proper storage of leftovers. No food should be left out greater than two hours. Remove the stuffing from the turkey & refrigerate or freeze each separately. Never keep leftovers longer than four days.Throw them out at any time, if they look or smell bad. Also, when reheating leftovers make sure they are heated completely to 165°F. Decreasing the Risk of Food poisoning Following are a few simple tips that will help decrease your family's risk of food poisoning this holiday season. If you have any further questions please call the Poison Center at 800-222-1222.

• •

• Thaw your turkey in the refrigerator, allowing one to three days for complete thawing. If time isn't allowed, immerse the bird in a watertight wrapper in cold water, continue adding ice to avoid turkey reaching room temperature. • Wash hands in hot soapy water before preparing your food and after using the bathroom, changing diapers and handling pets. People with open cuts, sores, boils, vomiting or diarrhea should not handle food. Thaw food in the refrigerator, not on the counter. Bacteria can grow in the outer layers of the food before the inside thaws. Always marinate food in the refrigerator. • Wash cutting boards and utensils in hot soapy water after use. Use plastic cutting boards rather than wooden ones where bacteria can hide in grooves. • Stuff the turkey just prior to roasting. Remove liver and gizzards. • The safest method to determine when the turkey is cooked is to place a meat thermometer inside the thigh muscle (or thickest part of the breast). It should read 180°F–185°F for normal turkeys. "Keep it Safe, Refrigerate." To reduce the growth of bacteria, the refrigerator should run at 40°F, the freezer at 0°F. (If you don't have a thermometer, keep your refrigerator as cold as possible without freezing your milk or lettuce.) "When in doubt, throw it out."   Refrigerate turkey, gravy and stuffing within two hours after your meal. Room temperature isn't sufficient. Store foods in tightly sealed containers but don't pack your refrigerator so tight that air cannot circulate around the food properly. For advertising opportunities call 941.661.7475 - Page 17

HOME IMPROVEMENT TIPS

Making a Safer Home for your Family Filled with mesmerizing trinkets and gadgets - your home is a new and exciting world for your small child to explore. But this new world can introduce serious and sometimes surprising safety issues that many parents do not realize are risks. Hidden concerns in common household devices As your children happily toddle around your home, they may come in contact with unknown safety issues scattered throughout. One issue you may not have considered is coin lithium batteries, about the size of a nickel, which can be found around most homes in everyday items like remote controls, keyless entry devices for your car, sound-enabled books and a variety of health and fitness devices. Because many of these devices are not regulated as children's toys, the battery compartments often are very easy to open. Children are naturally drawn to these devices, as many include buttons that are fun to play with and push. The danger of these batteries is very real. If a coin-sized lithium battery is swallowed by a small child, it can get caught in the esophagus. The battery can react with saliva and cause a chemical reaction that can lead to severe injuries in as little as two hours. Unfortunately, many parents do not know about the issue. In fact, a recent survey showed 62 percent of parents reported being unaware of the risk associated with coin lithium batteries.

Today's technology makes those pesky tasks of washing, drying and folding your beloved garments easier than ever before. Gain inspiration for a laundry room update with cutting-edge solutions that work hard to get your clothes squeaky clean and may even make the chore fun. Laundry room meets entertainment center Newly constructed homes are starting to include laundry rooms with all the bells and whistles. For those wanting to be entertained while folding their garb, mounted flat screen televisions will ensure you don't miss a minute of your favorite show. Other ornate laundry facilities include a space for your laptop for the most serious multitasking individuals. High-efficiency top-load washers The traditional top-load washer has received a well-deserved makeover. New technology has enabled that familiar washer you grew up with to be considered highefficiency (HE) and is the fastest growing category in home laundry appliances. Though HE models typically cost more upfront, consumers can save money over the life of the product because they use less energy and water. These washers, such as the GE HE top-load washer, spin clothes at a higher speed, thus removing more moisture. This cuts down on time and energy used with a dryer. Colorful Gone are the days of dull laundry rooms and washers and dryers only available in white. The laundry room is much more colorful today as appliance manufacturers roll out bright and cheerful appliances, such as ruby red and champagne. The home trend of grey has also hit the laundry room as more subdued and classic shades, such as metallic carbon, are gaining popularity. Dispensing and stain removal advancements High-tech features, such as GE SmartDispense, dole out the right amount of detergent based on soil level, fabric and cycle type. The feature can even store up to a two-month supply of laundry detergent and softener inside of the washer. A built-in stain removal guide tackles common clothing stains, such as oil, grass and dirt, while a steam option relaxes fabric and helps loosen set-in stains.
