    We just bought a stainless steel dishwasher on craigslist for $75. It works great, but there were a few pesky rust stains on the front. I googled ways to remove rust and came up with baking soda. If you dip a moistened soft bristle toothbrush or your finger (the finger worked better) in baking...

    Seriously? They all work, black, and they all match. Did you really need to buy all stainless steel to replace them? :skept: Sorry, a House Hunters rant. Done this before, so forgive me. :)

    Hi folks :) My question is about HE appliances, in particular a new HE front loading washing machine we just bought recently. Now, I'm not using HE laundry detergent, just whatever liquid kind I get on sale :P I already had a small stockpile of "Extra: "Surf" and "pyrex"....they aren't the HE...

    This is what's going on... Our dishwasher has been growing black mold in it for the past 2 to 3 years, and no matter how much I bleach, SOS or scrub at the mold it doesn't disappear for very long. I've been putting up with that since that has been the only (yet disturbing) problem we have had...

    When people ask me about ways to save money, I give them the usual answers. Don’t buy stuff you don’t need, look for the best deal on what you do need, be conscious of your spending, etc. But I also throw in one more simple piece of advice. Don’t throw stuff away that you know you’ll need again...

    ~My new fridge! The first fridge I've ever bought actually. This house came with a mid-90's fridge and we replaced that with a smaller fridge from my mom made in 1999. But it has been leaking water for almost a year now, things don't stay as cold as I'd like, it's only 14 cubic feet and I got...
  14. Question and Answer
    Hi I am new to the site. I have to purchase a dishwasher and electric oven. Neither are functioning. I went to a local appliance store w/ a "Consumer Report" on a "best buy" for a certain dishwasher & oven. Of course the price in the store was $125-$200 above what CR suggests. The store owner...

    I have some pretty old appliances in my home. My oldest tv is more than 12 years old and works great. My gas range is a Kenmore and over 25 years old. Just learned my water heater is from the 70's. No idea how old my furnace is. I once had a microwave that died at 12 years old. It was so old I...

    What advice would you give in choosing appliances for a large family? We are a family of 8 and homeschool, so the kitchen and laundry room never stop. What is a frugally wise choice here? Features/brands/price points to look for? Thanks, Becky in TX

    I submitted a post a few days ago, asking for hints on the best food sealer gadget to get. Thanks to everyone who responded! I had decided to bite the bullet and spend $80+ on a FoodSaver. On my way to Target to get it, I stoped at my local grocery store to pick up a few things first. I saw...

    Q&A: Do steam laundry appliances work better than regular washers and dryers? I've seen a growing number of steam-equipped washers and dryers in stores. How well do these machines work? As we noted in our February 2008 report "Washers and Dryers: Performance for Less,"€� more manufacturers are...
