The brands include:
- Magic Chef

It seems that there is a chance that the heating element in the dishwasher could fail and start a fire. To date, the CPSC has 12 reported incidents of such fires.
To determine if your dishwasher has been recalled, first find the serial number. See the photo below to locate it.
If you have any other questions, you should contact Maytag at either (800) 544-5513 anytime, or visit the firm’s website at www.repair.maytag.com

In the last couple of years, StarMark has introduced inset cabinetry doors, exotic veneer finishes, Old World style distressing, and now custom color matching.
Did I mention that all of this is available from a company that is still 20%-45% less than the other custom cabinet manufacturers?
Now they’ve done one better – from now until August 16, StarMark is taking 10% off of the entire cabinet line: all the doorstyles, accessories, finish upgrades, customization – everything! A straight 10% off – that’s totally unheard of in the kitchen design community.
By the time you finish adding up all the savings, there is no way another custom company can touch them. I’ve run the comparisons. With 10% off, StarMark competes with the price of my budget-conscious cabinetry offerings.
So kitchens, bathrooms, home offices, wet bars, you name it. If it’s StarMark Cabinetry, there’s 10% off in it for you. Talk about an affordable custom cabinet!
But you better hurry, when summer is over, so are the savings. Everything from StarMark is on Sale – but only until August 16. (contact Duncan's Creative Kitchens)

First off, you’ve got to get everything out and tossed into one of three piles: “Keep”, “Donate”, and “Toss”. If you want to keep it, no problem. If it’s time to get rid of it, then be honest – if it’s wearable, you can donate it to your favorite thrift store or have a garage sale to get rid of it. If it’s seen better days, then throw it out. If you’re like me, the next thing you have to do is actually drive the ‘Donate’ things to the thrift store and drag the ‘Toss’ pile to the curb. (If I save it to do later, it will just end up back in the closet until I get time to ‘deal with it later’.)
Next, looks at the “Keep” pile. Decide what needs hangers, what goes on shelves, which items would be best stored in drawers, and if you need any ‘special’ storage for some items. Once you have your inventory, then you can get to work on deciding the best remedy for your storage needs. There are all sorts of boxes, bins, hooks, and tags you can pick up at housewares or container stores to suit your situation.
So steel your nerves, fling open the closet doors, and kick that closet monster out once and for all.
A clean and happy kitchen is a wonderful thing. Unfortunately, they don’t yet clean themselves. Nobody likes it, but we all have to do it from time to time. People always call and ask how and what they should be using to clean their cabinets. Really, there is no specialized equipment necessary – just some everyday things you already have, a little elbow grease, and a couple of quick techniques will take care of your everyday cleaning requirements.
