Spring cleaning and your kitchen appliances

As we plow ahead through the spring, we’re sure many of you are engaging in a little bit of spring cleaning these days – and in addition to decluttering, it’s also a great time to take care of your appliances. 

Maintaining your appliances is a great way to not only improve their performance and efficiency, but it’s also a great way to extend their lifecycle. With that said, here are some tips you can use to help tackle your kitchen appliances this spring and get a little bit more out of them. Keeping them clean is certainly one of them.

Today, we’re going to let you know some of the ways that you can keep these appliances clean so that your appliances work better and last longer. Let’s jump right in. 

Cleaning your dishwasher

Dishwashers are there to clean dishes, but when you ask people how to clean a dishwasher they look at you assuming that it’s kind of an oxymoronic question when in truth – it isn’t. Dishwashers do get film and buildup inside as well as food particles that build up over time with each subsequent use. Both can cause backup in your system, impact the temperature during cleaning and washing and expend more energy, which in turn – ends up costing you more money in order to run it. 

The best way you can clean your dishwasher, you can place one, single dishwasher safe dish in the bottom rack with shite vinegar on it. Simply run your dishwasher on the highest possible heat setting and all the residue and food particles will get cleaned. Be sure to clean out your basin at least once every other week.

Wipe down your refrigerator

Fridges that don’t get cleaned regularly develop bacteria. This is dangerous for a whole myriad of reasons that don’t have to do with the performance and function of your fridge, but rather your safety and health. To keep bacteria at bay, make sure you use disinfecting wipes to clean out drawers, shelves and the other surfaces in the fridge. This way, you’ll eliminate any health risks and unpleasant odors. 

Cleaning the oven

Cleaning your oven is vital to it’s long term health and function. It is also a safety issue. If you’re noticing that your oven is smoking a lot during preheating, then you likely have too much buildup on the interior. Be sure that every six months or so, that you run the oven’s cleaning setting and use cleaning products afterwards with a scouring sponge to remove any difficult to clean particles. Not only will you get better heat transmission, but you’ll eliminate the smoke issues and drastically reduce the likelihood of any kind of fire. 

Hopefully these tips will help you keep a little bit cleaner kitchen, but also get more out of your appliances. If you find yourself experiencing issues with your appliances, feel free to give us a call and we’ll be happy to provide you with a free consultation. Until then, good luck!
