Tips for Preventing Thanksgiving Celebration Mishaps!

Think your holiday gathering is stressful? How about adding a preventable mishap into the mix! Here are some suggestions on how to prevent a few things from getting in the way of your Thanksgiving celebrations!!

Know where your water sources shut off, just in case!!

Whether it’s a toilet that overflows or a sink that won’t shut off, it’s a catastrophe that might be prevented if you know how to turn the water off when a leak happens, before it gets out of hand!

Be sure to know where your water shut off valves are for sinks, toilets, washer, sprinkler system, etc. If a problem arises you can shut it off at the source until a handyman can get there to fix it. Disaster averted!!

Garbage disposal safety!

Remember these basic tips when using your garbage disposal to prevent drain clogs or disposal damage!

  • No Starchy Foods (potatoes, pasta, rice, ect.) These are drain cloggers

  • No Egg shells (they dull the blades!)

  • No Grease (yet another sink clogger)

  • No Non-organic Materials

  • Run a strong flow of water when grinding food.

Frying a Turkey? Stay safe, and follow these simple rules!

Stay safe with these turkey-frying guidelines:

  • Never fry a frozen turkey. The turkey should be completely thawed before you put it in the fryer.

  • Fry your turkey outdoors, away from anything flammable.

  • Wear eye protection and skin protection. Hot oil pops. Think about bacon frying in a pan, and then multiply it by the size of the turkey.

  • Have a fire extinguisher handy.

  • Never, ever, ever put water on a grease fire!
