Dear Héloïse: I read your column every day in the San Antonio Express-News.
In response to a recent suggestion about keeping a list of all medications in a wallet, I wanted to go a step further.
I not only keep a copy of all my over-the-counter medications, prescriptions, and supplements, but also vaccines (flu, COVID, etc.). I also include surgeries and when they were performed. It also tells what medications I am allergic to. I keep a copy in my wallet and a copy in my car. I also keep an envelope on my car visor that includes medication, who to contact in case of an accident and a copy of my advance directive.
I do it because I’m 78 and I still go on vacation on the road a lot. If anything happens to me on one of these trips, at least first responders will be notified. Also, a good tip is to have your emergency contacts identified in your phone as ICE (in case of emergency). Again, I’m thinking of first responders. —Marshall Jackson, Cibolo, Texas
MORE CLOGGED IRONS
Dear Héloïse: I iron my clothes every week and I was surprised that no one answered the lady from Wisconsin on how to prevent her iron from getting clogged again. I’ve been using distilled water in my iron for years! And there are no clogs or white mineral stains on the clothes I iron. Happy ironing! —Mary, Chino Hills, CA
REDUCE THE ELECTRICITY BILL
Dear Héloïse: To reduce the electricity bill, unplug all the TV decoders. Only plug them in when you need them. The cable industry has done nothing to maintain the energy efficiency of its enclosures. Save $20 per month, per box. —Kyle Nienberg, Lima, Ohio
Dear Héloïse: Before opening a box with a can opener, I wash or rinse the top of the box. The cans travel hundreds or thousands of miles and are stored in a warehouse, where they can collect dirt or dander during shipments.
By cleaning the box, you “to push” dirt or dander in the box containing the food. — Greg Sommer, Los Alamitos, CA
Dear Héloïse: Most of my cutlery and serving utensils have the same handle. I started to place the handle backwards. Now at a glance I can see if I’m getting the item I want – like the slotted spoon, fork, etc. – Phyllis Holsinger, via email
