It’s hard keeping your electrical appliances clean as it requires a lot of effort. But it’s a lot simpler than you think. But actually, it’s a lot simpler than we think. Here are three kitchen appliances that we just hate to clean, but would make our lives easier if we did.
Cleaning your Microwave
Your microwave is one of the electrical appliances you need to clean. Place a bowl filled half full of warm water and add the juice of half a lemon. Leave the remaining slices of lemon inside the bowl and place it into your microwave. Set your microwave on high heat for five minutes and press start. This will create steam that will cling to the walls of your microwave, loosening the dirt and killing bacteria in the process. It will also leave your microwave smelling fresh and looking spotless. You can also use a vinegar solution and do the same thing, adding a tablespoon of vinegar to a bowl of warm water.
Open your microwave, remove the mixture and allow most of the steam to evaporate. Let it cool for about a minute or so. You still want the surface to remain warm enough so that the mess is easy to wipe dry. Use a microfiber cloth to wipe down the sides, the back, and top surfaces. Before you wipe down the base, remove the glass plate and clean that separately.
Cleaning your Dishwasher
Before you start, be sure that there are no large chunks of leftover food at the bottom. If so, just remove them with a paper towel and dispose of it into the trash-can. Pour one cup of vinegar in a plastic container and place it in the top rack. The vinegar will yet again loosen all those food bits on the sides. Set the dishwasher on the longest cycle at the highest heat level. Once the dishwasher is done with the first cycle, remove the container which is now filled with water and empty it.
Add a cup of baking soda in that same cup, and sprinkle it over the bottom rack. Set it to run a shorter cycle on medium heat. You can use wet wipes or any hand sanitizer to clean the exterior of your dishwasher, getting rid of splattered food and fingermarks. Once the last cycle is done, you will see how incredibly spotless it looks inside.
Cleaning your Kettle
Limescale usually builds up inside your kettle after frequent use. To remove it, fill up your kettle with a mixture consisting of half white vinegar and half water. Leave it to soak overnight. The next day, you will see that limescale has softened and can slide right off. Throw out the mixture and rinse thoroughly. Fill it up with fresh water and boil, as to remove any lingering odor of vinegar.
You can also use chemical descalers, designed for both metal and plastic kettles. Descaling your kettle every month or two makes is a lot more effective than leaving limescale to accumulate. The longer it stays inside your kettle, the harder it is to remove completely.
It is important to make a habit of keeping your electrical appliances clean. They last longer and your kitchen feels fresh and sanitary as a result.
