Cleaning your home appliances is one thing, deep cleaning them is another
Once your appliances start gathering tough stains and molds, it’s time to ask for professional help
To help you pick out which appliances need detailing and deep cleaning the most, here’s a list of common appliances found in most households…
Your refrigerator is one of the easiest appliances to get dirty. This is because all foods, liquid, solid, or plasma are stored there. Even your leftovers wind up there at some point. These are all good to store inside your refrigerator, but when they spill, smear, or stay too long inside, that’s where it gets tricky. A popular trick to remove any hard-to-reach stains inside refrigerators is by wiping down the interiors with mild detergent, water, and a sponge. Once you’ve finished cleaning and everything is dry, pat dry the refrigerator interiors with a clean cloth, place all the consumable food inside, and add a bowl of charcoal to help with deodorisation.
Unlike refrigerators, cooktops are some of the most easiest to clean. This is because they’re positioned upright and have a smooth finish. When cleaning cooktops, avoid using harsh cleaners. These types of cleaners are not only dangerous for coming in contact with the appliances you cook food on, but they may do more harm than good on your cooktop’s finish. Simply use a sponge, and a hot water solution mixed with soap. This can melt off any hardened stains surrounding your cooktops’ burners.
But if this is something that’s not possible with your busy schedule or your physical abilities, seek the help of expert detailers who can get the job done. This team of experts can help make sure every window, home appliance, and bathroom tile is squeaky clean and looking brand new in no time!
Microwaves are among the easiest home appliances to get dirty especially if you’re the type who doesn’t cover their food before they start cooking. Begin cleaning by filling a microwaveable with water and sliced lemons. The lemons’ scent can mask out any strong odors as you go. Turn the microwave on for five minutes with the bowl and lemon slices inside. Once the 5 minutes is up, take the bowl out, plug off the microwave, and wipe down every surface inside with a cloth dampened with a food grade disinfectant.
Although washing machines do the job of cleaning our clothes, unfortunately, it doesn’t have the ability to clean itself. However, you can clean it yourself without the need of specialised detergents. Get rid of the musty odors by adding 1 quart of chlorine bleach into your empty washer and run it for a few minutes with hot water plus an extra rinse.
Similar to the washing machine, the dishwasher is one handy home appliance that can’t cleanse itself on its own (unless specified). Clean it at least once a month by emptying the dishwasher, removing the drains and racks, and then placing a cup of distilled white vinegar on the top rack. Run it shortly with hot water and move to sprinkling a cup of baking soda on the dishwasher floor and running it again with a hot water cycle. Skip the drying parts in between, you’ll only need that function after doing the first two hot water cycles.
