Refrigerators

You may have gotten your hands on a good quality refrigerator like the REFRIGERATOR HAMDDREF 48BLK, but cleaning it is still a must! Uncleaned refrigerators are one of the highest breeding grounds for dangerous bacteria that can cause food-borne illnesses such as salmonella, E.coli, and listeria. Cleaning also removes unwanted odors and clutter, and reduces the decay of your food. So make sure that you add cleaning to your weekly or monthly routine!

Before you load up your refrigerator with freshly bought groceries, do a quick wipe with warm and soapy water. For a monthly deep clean and disinfection, mix together a 1:1 ratio of water and white vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray and wipe the handles, drawers, organizers, and shelves.

Microwaves and Electric Ovens

Food splatters and oil build-up are inevitable in your microwaves and electric ovens. However, don’t let them stay there for too long or else they’ll be harder to remove. They may even leave your appliance smelling odd afterward. Make sure to wipe down the interior and exterior of your MICROWAVE OVEN HMO 20MDRLX3 after every use.

For a weekly clean, combine 1 cup of water and lemon into a microwave-safe bowl, place it inside, and turn it on high power for a minute or until the window steams up. This will loosen up any oil and leftover debris. Remove the bowl and wipe the insides with a damp sponge.

For a weekly electric oven cleaning, mix half a cup of baking soda with three tablespoons of water until it turns into a pasty consistency. Remove all the racks and use a brush to scrub the insides of your ELECTRIC OVEN HEO 30SS with the paste. Let this sit for about one to two hours. Spray it with white vinegar and wipe it down afterward.

Cooling Appliances

Did you know that dusty fans and air conditioners can present an unhealthy situation for your household? Dirty cooling appliances can circulate allergens, dust, dirt, and other impurities into your home. So make sure that you are giving it the proper care it needs. Here’s how you can simply clean your air conditioners and electric fans!

1. Electric Fans

First, make sure that your STAND FAN WIND CHASER 18SF or any electric fan is unplugged before you get to cleaning. Carefully remove its cage, take a dry cloth, and dust the blades, grills, and cage to remove loose dust. Take a damp cloth and wipe it down afterwards. When everything is all dry and clean, put the fan back together. Make sure that you clean the fan base and stand too!

2. Air Conditioners

For a weekly clean of your INVERTER WINDOW TYPE AIR CONDITIONER HWTINVAC-10HP, you can always wipe down the exterior with a damp cloth. For a deep-cleaned and disinfected air conditioner, it is best to have it maintained through a professional so that you won’t have to do the nitty-gritty.

Washing Machines

Just like your clothes, your washing machine needs some cleaning, too. There may be leftover laundry detergent, softeners, marks, and stains that you wouldn’t want to cling on to your newly-washed clothes. Mold and grime can also form if you leave it uncleaned for a prolonged amount of time. So make sure that you are doing a deep clean once a month.

Thankfully, cleaning is made easy with the FULLY AUTOMATIC WASHING MACHINE HAWMD-175LX. All you need to do is run a cycle with equal parts of bleach and hot water. After the cycle is finished, wipe it down to dry. Make sure to wipe it down thoroughly to prevent a buildup of mildew and mold.

Induction and Gas Stoves

Your induction cookers and gas stoves have probably accumulated oil and food buildup after your uses. Make sure that you are taking proper care of it by wiping the surfaces down after every use! But make sure that you prioritize safety first. All stoves should be turned off and cooled before cleaning.

To clean your GAS STOVE G 202 or your INDUCTION COOKER HIC 90, soap up a non-abrasive sponge and give the burners and surface a thorough cleaning. Rinse and repeat as necessary.
