Not all the appliances we have, needs exactly the same maintenance. The appliances we’ve got such as kitchen range, oven, fridges, washing machine, dishwasher and more at home will need distinct cleaning techniques so you should be extra careful in doing so. There are those who are just easy to clean but there are also those that are intricate.

•    Dishwasher – Be sure to clean the dishwasher at least once a month to make sure that your dishes are being released clean. Clean the spinning arms with cloth and ensure that the holes on it have no debris inside. Then you need to clean the doors and the bottom of the dishwasher and wipe away any debris with a wet sponge or cloth.

•    TV/ Computer – Ensure that you use only moist cloth or paper towel in cleaning its surface because you do not want it to result in scratches of marks.

•    Microwave – Be sure to unplug first then utilize dish soap to clean the tray or the plate. To get rid of foul odor, you can use a vinegar or lemon, place it in a microwave glass, turn the microwave on and allow it to stay for 5 minutes then remove it.

•    Kitchen range – One method to help get rid of grease and also sanitize your range is with the use of vinegar in a spray bottle and wipe it down with a cotton cloth. The texture also helps scrub away food particles.

•    Washer or dryer – Use soapy water in cleaning the outside surface of the appliance and use a moist cloth to clean and take away dirt inside.

•    Refrigerators – In cleaning refrigerators, make sure to unplug first then shut off the knob, remove all sorts of things inside then start off cleaning the racks and shelves. It is possible to remove the racks and clean them with soapy water similar to washing dishes.
