How to Clean the Appliances Found in Your Kitchen

If there’s one room in your home that must be kept clean, it’s your kitchen, or more specifically kitchen appliances. Not only for aesthetic reasons, but also for health and hygiene purposes – the last thing you want is mice running around the place, yuck! We recommend you clean the appliances on a weekly to monthly basis, as spending hours cleaning your appliances isn’t the best way to spend a day – take it from us! Listed below are some of the most common kitchen appliances that need to be cleaned regularly.

Dishwasher

While a dishwasher is designed to make cleaning utensils and cutlery a much easier process, if you go too long belong cleaning the machine things can get out of hand fast. What we recommend is filling the machine with a cup’s worth of white vinegar and then running it through a complete cycle. Using the hottest water setting is also recommended. If you are unlucky enough to have your dishwasher smell then try using a bit of baking soda and running a complete cycle again.

Refrigerator

Cleaning your refrigerator at the very least once a month is always a good idea. You should start by removing all the boxes, jars, food items etc. from the fridge and rinse all the drawers and shelves with baking soda and soap to get rid of the grease and odor.

Microwave

If you’re anything like me and use your microwave frequently then it’s only natural for it to become very dirty after some time. We recommend that you first remove the glass tray and rinse it with a soapy solution. Then you should clean the interior using some baking soda or dishwashing liquid. http://therightappliance.com/microwaves

Coffee Maker

If you can’t start your day without a cup of coffee in the morning then you know just how easily coffee makers like the DeLonghi Lattissima Plus accumulate dirt (and the guys at www.therightappliance.com know how you feel!). Worse of all, though, is how this can affect the taste of your coffee, making it taste distinctively bitter. Therefore, to clean the coffee maker, add a bit of white distilled vinegar to the pot, add water, and then turn the machine on. Once this has been done, run the coffee maker through water a couple of times. This will result in a clean machine and coffee that tastes as good as the day you first bought a cofee maker like the Nespresso Essenza C91.

Toaster

Cleaning your toaster is an easy one. Simply unplug the toaster, pull out the crumb catcher and wash it. Finally, shake the machine to get rid of any crumbs stuck in the toaster. Of course, you need to make sure that everything is dry before plugging it back in again.

Stove

Stoves are renown for accumulating plenty of grease and grim in a short amount of time. Thankfully, however, they are simple to clean. Wipe the surface of the stove and dip the cloth in hot, soapy water. You should also probably wash behind and to the sides of the stove as well.
