You want to do the right thing and include a first aid kit in your workshop. The question is, what should you keep in it? Here's a list of must haves: Regular and elastic bandages, antiseptic ointment, cotton swabs and balls, a tweezers, eye drops, elastic bandages with first-aid tape, gauze, a chemical cold pack, and a first aid information handbook. Also a list of emergency phone numbers either right near the phone or in the first-aid box cover itself.
Whenever possible, use your microwave instead of the oven. Microwaves use less than half the power of a conventional oven and cook food in about one-fourth the time. Ovens also heat up the kitchen, making your cooling system and refrigerator work harder.
