Sus­tain­abil­ity Tips

Catron Courier - - News -

Even if you have cen­tral air con­di­tion­ing or a win­dow mounted unit, con­sider get­ting a por­ta­ble evap­o­ra­tive cooler. These small units are at­trac­tive, en­ergy ef­fi­cient, and do a good job of cool­ing. They also of­ten have wire­less re­mote con­trols, on-off timers, and in­clude air pu­rifi­ca­tion (great in case of smoke in the area). Use the cooler in­stead of your AC and put it near you— just like a fan. Di­rect cool­ing is much cheaper than cool­ing the whole house. And you'll love the ex­tra hu­mid­ity these units add. You can even move it from room to room. Just put wa­ter in the lit­tle tank and you'll start cool­ing right away. They can cost as lit­tle as $60 and start sav­ing you money right away.

For a great weed killer, mix 1 gal­lon vine­gar, 2 cups Ep­som salt, and 1/4 cup Dawn dish­wash­ing soap (in orig­i­nal blue). Mix and spray in the morn­ing and you’ll never buy toxic prod­ucts again!
