cleaning your appliances
In my last post, I have mentioned about the tips on buying home appliances in the best way. After having these pieces of machines to your homes, you will have to make it stay longer. If you are looking into various methods for cleaning appliances, then you are probably inundated with abrasives, chemicals and natural products.

Get the lowdown on different ways to clean appliances like your fridge handle, dishwasher, microwave and toaster. You can make your appliances surfaces look like new. This will be expensive for you if you will not do it regularly. Cleaning your home appliances most often will help its life longer. Check and learn these important cleaning methods of your appliances.

  • Unplug appliances before cleaning them. When you're cleaning appliances, it's easy to accidentally hit a knob and turn it on so it's just a good idea to make sure that there's no way to burn or cut yourself. Be safe always and unplugged it from the outlet.
  • Wipe all solid debris from the surfaces of your kitchen appliances. This is the easy part. Simply dampen a rag with hot water and vinegar. If you prefer, you can use an all-purpose cleaner. Wipe away the solid debris leaving behind the appliance surface that probably has brown gunk in between the nooks and crannies of the surface texture. Advanced cleaning techniques are in order for this type of surface.
  • Moisten a microfiber sponge with water. Sometimes the sponge can be damaged through the use of chemicals including mild dish soaps. Be sure that your appliance is free of soaps or cleansers and wipe gently with a microfiber sponge. If you may ask why they are called "magic" you will soon find out. In just a few gentle wipes, the textured surfaces are clean and free from gunk. Wipe the gunk away with plain water and enjoy your appliances looking like new.
  • Dip a damp dish sponge into baking soda. The baking soda is a gentle abrasive that can be scrubbed into the textured surface to release the gunk that's deep in the crevices. Rinse the baking soda from the surface by wiping with a damp sponge until you no longer feel the slipperiness of the baking soda. Baking soda cuts minerals, and makes the water very alkaline; this also helps to release the gunk.
