You wash your pillowcase regularly, but did you know you should be washing your pillow, too? When you’ve been using it for a while, it’ll start to get yellow and full of dust and germs. A great way to keep these allergens at bay is to use a pillow protector, but you still need to wash the pillow approximately every six months to ensure healthy breathing. The process is very simple!
1. Before you start, check the tag to make sure your pillow is machine washable. Most are, but foam and buckwheat ones need to be washed by hand.
2. Remove the pillow case and protector.
3. Wash two or three pillows at a time to keep the load … Read more...
A customer visited our Lawrenceville NJ Mobile Installation Center looking to upgrade his 2016 Jeep Wrangler’s sound system. The vehicle was brand new, but the factory sound system was lacking some much needed low-end impact. The Jeep Wrangler comes with stock 6 ½” speakers in the overhead sound bar and lower dash, two 1” tweeters on top of the dash, and AM/FM CD player Radio with Bluetooth features. Overall, the customer enjoyed the convenience of the sound system, but no matter what EQ adjustments he made, he could not achieve the deep bass he desired.
Deep bass provides warmth and detail to music that cannot be achieved by the small full-range speakers that are standard in many vehicles. … Read more...

This is everything you never knew you needed in a refrigerator. It takes a picture of the inside of your fridge every time the door closes, so you can check the contents on your smart phone while you’re out shopping. Download apps to order groceries, look up recipes, leave notes for the family, share photos, play music, search the internet, and even mirror whatever you’re watching on your Smart TV!
Sleek. Purposeful. Efficient. These are a few of the adjectives we hear most often about Bosch appliances. Yet for many of us, these words are not an accurate description of our kitchens at home. We love our kitchens and the possibilities associated with what we think is the most important room in the home, but the truth is that keeping the space clean and organized is hard work. There must be an easier way to maintain a peaceful, calm, and organized kitchen!
At Bosch, we look to Bauhaus, one of the most influential currents in modern design, to inspire the design of our appliances. Lucky for us (and you!), many of the design principles from this school of thought can … Read more...
When you’ve had your refrigerator for a while, it starts to show signs of age. Sometimes it’s worth it to have it repaired, but it might make more sense to just replace the unit. Refrigerators typically last between ten and twenty years, so take into account how long you’ve had it. If it’s over eight years old, problems may be more concerning than they’d be with a newer fridge. Here are some signs it’s time for a replacement:
1. Your food is spoiling quickly
If your fridge isn’t preserving your food as well as it once did, it’s wasting a lot of energy and costing you extra money. The doors may not be sealing properly, or the temperature may be … Read more...
If you’re reading this on your computer right now, take a second and look at your keyboard. It probably doesn’t look as nice as it did when you first started using it. Most people like to enjoy coffee and snacks while working at their computers, and as a result, a lot of debris builds up underneath the keys. Dirty keyboards can cause your device to not function as well, and the buildup of germs can lead to health problems, so it’s important to keep everything as clean as possible.
By far the simplest way to get the grime out is to use Cyber Clean, which molds to any surface and picks up the dirt that gets trapped in everyday … Read more...
