Here are a few ways to clean your home appliances with simple and safe cleaning products you can find in your pantry.
How to clean your microwave naturally:
Add 1/3 cup of water and a tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon into a bowl and microwave for 3 to 5 minutes. Then, carefully remove the bowl and wipe the inside thoroughly.
How to clean your refrigerator Your refrigerator and freezers can be deep cleaned once every three months if you’re in the weekly habit of ensuring there are no food spills inside. Use a gentle cleaner like baking soda and warm water to remove odors and soak any removable shelves in hot/warm soapy water. Get every nook and cranny of your refrigerator inside and out, including the rubber seals.
How to clean your washing machine Cleaning your washing machine is effortless and only needs to be done once a month. Set your washing machine to the hottest water cycle, add 1/2 cup of baking soda, and let it run as usual (without clothes). Baking soda will deodorize and neutralize any odors, as well as clean your washing machine for improved functioning.
How to clean your dryer To clean your dryer, use a microfiber cloth or damp sponge with baking soda to wipe down the inside and let it air dry. Limit using dryer sheets and fabric softeners as they can leave residue on your dryer’s walls and clog the lint trap.
How to clean your dishwasher Cleaning your dishwasher will not only extend its lifespan but also help it to wash your dishes more effectively. After each dishwashing cycle, make it a habit to pull out the bottom rack and look for any small bits of food. You don’t want stuck-on food molding and causing an unsanitary environment inside your dishwasher.
