    Save Electric & Cash - Stop using the Dryer this week ...
    Now its warmer , why not try and hang the washing outside to dry, or if you haven't a garden or clothes line. do this inside but make sure you have the windows open to ensure you don't create mold /moisture issue....

    Induction cooking is So much better than Gas .. easy to clean the hob after making a mess (as normal) and So Very fast and controllable !
    Everyone should consider this when they are able...  they do Plug-in versions (so it has a 13amp plus on, just need a spare socket) But I recommend the full install (32/42amp) and get the most out it  (requires a new cable to the electric fuse box) Do Induction Hobs Need Special Wiring? (bestspy.co.uk) & Why Top Chefs Have Switched to Induction Hobs and You Should Too (bestspy.co.uk)
    **Electric hob reduces the use of Scope 1 Fossil fuels for cooking,
