Remove from heat and cover to keep warm. STEP SIX: Wipe out pan and place tortillas one at a time on medium heat for roughly 5-15 seconds, or until you see bubbling and blistering, then flip to warm the other side.

HOME

HUMIDITY AND MOISTURE IN THE HOME

One of the best ways to remove unwanted impurities from the kitchen is to purchase a range hood. A range hood is a great way to remove excess steam, heat, carbon monoxide and other pollutants that cooking can release into the air. When using this product it is recommended to turn on 15 minutes before and after cooking. This will help to capture any moisture that may be lingering before and after food preparation.

THE KITCHEN IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST OFFENDERS IN THE HOME WHEN IT COMES TO COLLECTING EXCESS MOISTURE AND STEAM. Excess humidity can lead to mold, mildew, indoor air pollutants and discomfort in the home. Mold exposure can cause congestion, throat irritation, coughing and other respiratory issues such as asthma and allergies.

It is also important to clean your grease and charcoal filters. Metal grease filters should be cleaned every two months or more frequently with heavy use. You should place your filters in a hot detergent solution or wash in the dishwasher. Abrasives and scouring agents can scratch the stainless steel finish and should not

be used to clean a finished surface. Please remove all water or any other liquid before re-installing the filters. Faber also has two different types of charcoal filters that need to be cleaned or maintained if you are recirculating. The first option is the FILTER1. The FILTER1 is non washable option that cannot be regenerated. This filter should be replaced every 4 months or more frequently with heavy use. The second type of charcoal filter is the FILTER1LL. The FILTER1LL is a new model that can be washed up to 8 times and lasts up to 4 years. Please remember to completely dry before placing back up into the hood. These simple tips will help your vent hood’s longevity and capture moisture and steam more effectively. Consider faberonline.com when choosing ventilation as we have a variety of styles to choose from and we strive for complete customer satisfaction. ◆

YOUR HOME W H I L E S O C I A L D I S T A N C I N G Article by Staci Edwards Design

I’m writing this today in hopes to inspire you a bit during this very uncertain time. As I’m sure you know, due to the Coronavirus, we are being asked to socially distance ourselves from each other, stay home, and even quarantine ourselves if we have any signs of being ill. I’ve been following this recommendation and spending most of my time at home, enjoying walks with my family, and only going out to public places when completely necessary (like to look for toilet paper and hand sanitizer, of course). While it is not easy, I understand the importance of doing this in order to work together and avoid COVID-19 from spreading. I’ve heard people comment about the fact that they are young, so chances are they will not be affected and will only suffer a bit of a cough or cold… That is really not the point. The point of staying away from others is not only to protect yourself, but it’s also to protect others. I’m sure that everyone has an older relative that they love and do not want to get sick, so let’s do what we can to help. Also, if hospitals become overrun due to the Coronavirus it puts everyone at risk – What would happen to people who got into a car accident, a lady who needs an emergency c-section, or to a child who fell and needed immediate care? We all need to think of the bigger picture and work together.

All that being said, I’ve been thinking about how I will be spending my time at home and thought I would share a few tips with you about ways that you can beautify your home while still practicing social distancing. You will not have to leave your home for the following activities and they will all help to make your home a more lovely place, which I hope will help to spark a bit of joy!

DECLUTTER + ORGANIZE I get no greater satisfaction than seeing a spot in my home decluttered, wiped down, and reorganized. Who’s with me? Ask yourself what spots need your attention. Whether it is your fridge, your master closet, or your whole main floor – Get started. To get rid of items you can either donate, sell, or toss. You will feel much better with a cleansed space. Be sure to listen to great music while you work to keep your spirits up and to help keep you motivated. Have kids home from school? Get them to join in if they are up for it. My 2-year-old loves to clean, so he gets his little toy duster and a rag and “helps” – It usually takes me longer when he helps, but at least he’s having fun and feels like a part of the team. ▹

HOME DÉCOR

HAVE FRESH FLOWERS One thing that is sure to add beauty to any space is fresh flowers. You can order a simple arrangement from a local flower shop in your area and ask for them to be delivered. This will not only make your home more beautiful, but it will also support a local small business that could probably use some extra support at this unsure time. I have noticed that a lot of flower shops are still providing delivery, but due to social distancing, they will simply ring your bell and leave the flowers outside the door, which I think is a great solution.

CREATE AN INSPIR ATION BOARD One thing I have my clients do when we first start to work together on interior design projects is to hop online and gather images of spaces that they love. Look around your home and take note of the spaces or items that you’d like to update and then go online to research ideas and gather inspiration. A great way to search and save items is on Pinterest.

PLAN YOUR PROJECT If you’re looking to tackle a full project in the near future, now is the perfect time to start planning what that will look like. Go ahead and make some decisions around what you want to focus on, what you want to spend, and who you’d like to work with. Local architects, interior designers, and architects typically have projects booked in advance, so starting the process sooner rather than later will help you to book the job in advance and get all of your questions answered ahead of time, which will ensure a smoother process for everyone.

BOOK A CONSULTATION If you’ve got a bunch of things you’d like to do around your home but are not sure where to start, now is a great

time to book a consultation. You can book now and we can line up an in-home consultation for a later date (we’re currently booking consultations for mid-April) or you can request a virtual consultation, which we are now offering due to all of the requests for social distancing. These virtual consultations will be just as helpful for you as an in-home consultation would be, we can help answer all of your interior design and decorating dilemmas just as we would if we were in your home, but our communication will be done via email and

Skype. Typically we help with things like space planning, paint colours, budget questions to prioritize spending, ideas for where to shop, how to style and finish off a space, and anything else you need to gain clarity on to make your house a home.

If you would like to book a call to discuss how we can help you during a consultation, please email us at info@staciedwards.ca so that we can set up a time. ◆
