Expert Advice

The main article in the May issue of Consumer Reports is "101 Secrets From Our Experts: The Insider's Guide to Practically Everything."  The Consumer Reports experts give their best tips on a variety of subjects, such as:

  • Where not to place delicate foods in the refrigerator
  • Why you shouldn't use nitrogen in your tires
  • What to use when cleaning a computer screen
  • And our favorite tip--the public library is a resource for people who need help with research!  Take a tip from this and stop by your local library--the reference librarians can help you with your search for information.

Other useful articles in this issue are:

  • Ratings for the top six mattresses, both innerspring and memory foam
  • Ratings for blenders
  • Information on Vitamin D supplements
  • Ratings for lawn mowers and lawn tractors
  • And . . . the "Cracker Crunch-Off"--do all healthy crackers taste bad?

Each branch of the Fauquier County Library has the print issues of Consumer Reports from 2009 up to the current issue.  The Find It Virginia databases have an index to the issues from February 1, 1976 to the current issue, and the full-text of the reviews from January 1, 1999 to June 1, 2009.  You can access Find It Virginia from any library computer, or from home with your valid Fauquier County Public Library card.
