It might not be something you’d thought about before reading this, but your washer and dryer should be cleaned at least once a month. It will make them more effective and will keep them from breaking down or having issues down the road.

Don’t worry, though, you won’t need any special equipment or need to know how to disassemble and reassemble either machine. Here are 4 easy solutions to help keep them clean and in proper working condition. Remember: the better condition your machines are in, the cleaner and fresher your clothes will come out.

5. The 10 Best-Selling Skincare Products on Amazon

While every year has its end, Amazon’s customer reviews live on. A well- and much-reviewed product can skyrocket sales, something especially true for the site’s beauty and skincare offerings. But these first-person narratives do more than just boost brands – think of them as crowd-sourced tell-alls for what’s best and what works when the choices are endless.

So, without further ado, we bring you the 10 best-selling skincare products on Amazon from last year that you should add to your collection this year.
