Cleanliness is vital to our lives and well-being. Since we spend most of our time at home, it’s important to keep our appliances clean and in tip-top shape. Keeping appliances clean also offers several advantages, such as higher efficiency, lower utility bills, and greater durability. In addition, an overall fresh atmosphere in the house will be beneficial to everyone in it!
Here are some tips from leading LPG provider Solane on how to maintain and clean your home appliances:
When was the last time you cleaned your fridge? If you rarely check it, your fridge may be the dirtiest appliance in your home right now. Get started by removing everything in the refrigerator to wipe down the inside easily. It’s also helpful to check for expired food periodically. Scrub the shelves clean with a mixture of baking soda and warm water. Don’t forget to sweep the dust under the fridge. Vacuum the refrigerator coils to reduce the stress applied on its motor and extend its life.
The microwave is one of the appliances you use the most, especially if you save leftovers for meals later. We need to ensure that it stays clean in and out. Don’t waste soap and water scrubbing the crusted mess inside your microwave – steam them clean. Here’s how: Slice a lemon in half, squeeze the juice into a microwavable container, and add the lemon pieces, along with half a cup of water. Microwave the solution for three minutes or until the liquid starts to boil. Let the lemon water stand for five minutes before opening the microwave door. The steam will break down the dirt, making it easier for you to wipe the gunk inside.
