1. Keep Your Cool
Sometimes the most effective cleaning tasks are the least visible ones. Consider your refrigerator’s condenser coils, charged with transferring heat from your fridge into the ambient air. Usually hidden away beneath or behind the appliance, they tend to gather dust, becoming less efficient as they do so: The EPA’s EnergyStar website cites a study of commercially used refrigerators, noting an average energy savings of 11% after cleaning the coils. At just over two feet long, Brushtech’s Refrigerator Coil Cleaning Brush resembles a cattail. Its polypropylene bristles radiate out for most of its length and taper in, getting a little stiffer toward the tip—just the thing for getting into those hard-to-reach places. Utilitarian as it is, the brush has a little colonial-style flair in its handle (also polypropylene), which retains the hand-turned design created when some parts were still lathed from wood in the company’s factory, which has operated in Plattsburgh, N.Y., since 1976. $9, BrushtechBrushes.com
