Home appliances are an important part of a person’s life, as they tend to make it a lot easier than it would be without them. However, they often don’t get the kind of care they deserve, which often leads to hefty repair costs and the home appliances losing their durability over time.
So let’s take a look at a few cleaning hacks that can help you prevent them.
Cleaning an oven the smart way
Cleaning an oven can be a bit of a hassle, especially if it’s surface has turned hard and crusted, which it often turns over time if it’s used regularly. However, the cleaning process can be made a lot simpler using the cleaning hack explained below.
- Pouring some boiled water on the oven
- Letting the water sit on the water for about five minutes
- Using steep wool to get rid of all the dirt agents that may have attached them to the surface of the oven in a stubborn way
The result would be a very clean oven without a crusted surface and a lot of saved time and effort.
No more spills with this refrigerator hack
Spills are a common part of a refrigerator’s everyday use. However, they can be hard to clean and if not cleaned, they can affect the overall functioning of your refrigerator over time.
A simple way to avoid having to deal with the spills is to use cellophane to cover your fridge’s interior. The spills would not be able to get to your fridge’s interior, thanks to the cellophane layer.
You can replace the layer from time to time and you would have no spills to worry about and your refrigerator would be able to retain its medical-grade shine.
Simple steps to maintaining an ice maker
The following steps work well for all types and sizes of ice makers:
- Using a water filter
- Basic cleaning of your ice maker from time to time
- Ensuring that the ambient temperature stays in the recommended temperature range
Tackling the detergent accumulation in washing machines
Washing machines commonly have to deal with the caked-on detergent forming a cover on their interior. If this is the case with your washing machine as well, here’s what you may want to do:
- Remove the lint trap and soap dispenser (most washing machines would allow doing this)
- Use a sponge and hot water to thoroughly scrub both of them
- Alternatively, you can use a mixture of water and white vinegar (in a 50:50 ratio) and make the washer is running through its cycle
