Common household appliances also need to be thoroughly cleaned periodically and spring cleaning is a great time to tackle them. Keeping them cleaned inside and out will not only make them look nicer but it can help extend their life.
Here are my best recommendations for cleaning your appliances:
● Put 1 cup of water, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1 cup of vinegar in the microwave
● Run-on the high setting, for 2 minutes
● Wipe down with a damp cloth.
If your unit is an above the range microwave it will have a grease filter underneath (Typically stainless steel in color). Most grease filters are dishwasher safe so throw it in with your next load to get it sparkling again, always make sure to check with the manufacturer before doing so.
● Fill your sink with warm soapy water.
● Add in ½-1 cup of lemon juice.
● Allow the water to drain while running the garbage disposal.
● Pour a few cups of white vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher.
● Run-on for one cycle on high heat.
This will break down calcium that builds up inside of the unit.
● Put 2 cups of white vinegar in the washer
● Run-on the hot temperature setting, without any items inside.
This will help break up grime and buildup inside the machine.
I would recommend a foaming oven cleaner overusing the self-clean feature on your oven. The self-clean features tend to allow the heat to reach the control boards and can cause damage to them. Follow the instructions on the foaming oven cleaner package for the best results.
