Here we report on American made cast iron pots and pans glass and ceramic cookware like Corelle and Pyrex, Paper plates, Paper products, cleaning supplies, batteries, flashlights, hand tools and gardening supplies, a good list to take with you when you go hunting for American made products at the supermarket or local hardware store. Be sure to check out American made laundry supplies, and appliances for dishwashers, ranges, refrigerators, microwaves. When are we going to STOP BUYING JUNK? How dumb, stupid, and passive are the housewives, or house husbands of America? Positively the worst quality around is to be found in this household category of foreign made products that we keep buying and buying and throwing out. It's a crime against the environment. Some are so badly made that you are forced to continually throw them out and replace them. However, you cannot find good quality replacements, just more of the same low quality short lived junk.
Examples of this low quality are to be found in cleaning supplies in any supermarket: dish washing cloths which after one or two days usage and laundering look so stained that you want to toss them out. The washing up brushes and baby bottle brushes are much the same. Now add the turkey baster or roast baster. You cannot get the rubber bulb back on after you remove it for washing. Piece of junk sold in most supermarkets.

TIPS; Energy- Whenever you use anything, you are using the earth's resoures. The more of your own energy you use, the less of the earth's resoures you use. You already know to walk, bicycle, car pool it, and use tote bags insead of the plastic bags for your groceries. How about using a dish to cover a bowl instead of plastic cling film? How about stirring or beating cakes, frosting, bread, instead of using the mixer? How about not buying junk? Be angry and refuse the foreign junk dish cloths, dish washing brushes, pot holders, dust cloths that floods the super market shelves. Here's what to do. Don't throw away used cotton knit clothing. Make dishcloths and cleaning clothes from them. Don't throw away worn terry towels. Make pot holders from them. Cleaning tips: Instead of using costly cleaners to do your glass shower door, buy an Ettore squeegee, a small one, 6 inch and after every shower, squeegee the door.
