Look after appliance cords
Keep electrical appliances, their cords and any extension leads away from water. Ensure cords are in good condition – if they’re worn or frayed, don’t use the appliance until it’s been repaired by a licensed electrician.
If you decide to throw away the appliance, make sure it can’t be used by someone else.
Only ever disconnect an appliance at the outlet by pulling the plug, not the cord. This extends the life of your appliance.
