Tips for extending the life of your fridge

A refrigerator is a kitchen appliance that can be quite expensive. If you have a good freezer or have just bought one, it is imperative for you to learn how to take care of it so that it lasts longer. Here are a few things you should do that will go a long way to making sure your refrigerator lasts longer while working efficiently.

How you plug it

An extension cord is not advisable to use with a refrigerator. Plug the refrigerators cord directly into the socket on the wall of your kitchen. Avoid using an extension cord at all costs. If you however really have to use one, then please make sure it is an excellent extension cord and that it is rated well enough.


Where your refrigerator is placed or installed matters a lot. It is best to make sure you place them very far away from sources of heat. This can be your microwave, cooker, radiators. If it is close to a window, then ensure that window isn’t the one that lets in a lot of sunshine. Ensure that air can get to the compressor and the cooling coil. Also, take note of the fact that you should never have your fridge on top of a carpet. This is because carpets retain heat. Condensers of many refrigerators these days are found at the bottom of the fridge. This means that the heat would overwork the refrigerator’s compressor.

When to switch off

Sometimes you might need to travel or be away for quite a while. Find a way to keep the refrigerator empty and switch it off. Leaving the refrigerator running for long periods of time can end up damaging it which is why refrigerators these days have the refrigerator guards that you use to plug it into the wall socket. Its purpose is to switch the fridge on and off in intervals and to protect it in case there is a power surge.

Do not overload it

Some people fill their refrigerators with way too much food and this is not good for both the fridge and the food. Essentially, the cold air that the refrigerator produces is meant to circulate inside to keep the food at low temperatures to prevent spoilage. Filling up the fridge too much will make it difficult for this air to move around hence spoilage of the food. Make sure that the interior of your fridge is as clean as possible.…

Benefits of music classes for children

Your children engage in a lot of activities when they are in school. These activities help to shape their characters as well as their abilities in doing different things. Most kids are engaged in football and scout clubs though it would also be advisable to sign them up for music classes because the benefits of it cannot be overlooked. Be it a guitar, a violin or a piano that you want them to learn; it translates to so many positive traits. Here are some benefits of music classes for children.

Helps with academics

The academic skills of your child can be greatly improved just by getting them to participate in music classes. Some of the things taught in music school are beats, scales, and intervals. This comes as at a time when your child is learning how to add, subtract, multiply and divide numbers as well as fractions. Music and mathematics are quite related in such a way that engaging in music can help your child understand mathematics much better.

Helps with their social skills

Most music classes require children to work in groups. A child will have to adjust how fast or slow they are playing their instruments based on the speed of the rest of the group. It is fundamental for kids to know and understand each of the roles they play towards creating something bigger. Depending on the task that a particular group has been assigned, each child will have an important part to play, and this is very important in building their social skills and their ability to work well with other people


Learning an instrument takes time. It requires a lot of dedication and patience. It’s not something you can start working on today and be good at tomorrow. Getting involved in music classes will, therefore, cultivate an individual who can pay attention for extended periods of time. It will make sure your child understands the value of patience.

Exposure to multiple cultures

Children get to learn more about different cultures of different people around the world just by being participants of a music class. Learning the violin, for example, will help a child become familiar with classical music that came with the Germans.


A child’s self-esteem and confidence will be greatly improved because usually in music classes, a lot of constructive criticism is usually given. This criticism given by fellow students and teachers can be used to become better and hence help one to be confident in their abilities.…
