A Guide on Deep Cleaning Kitchen Appliances

A kitchen is where you keep your food and prepare your meals. Besides that, family and friends may also gather there, especially on special occasions. So, keeping everything clean and sanitized, including all your kitchen appliances, is of utmost priority.

While you can call for expert appliance care, you can also deep-clean your kitchen appliances on your own. Here are some tips to help you:

Refrigerator

Your fridge holds all your food, so keeping it hygienic is crucial to prevent odors and bacteria buildup that may cause health problems. To start, empty the refrigerator and organize all food items by throwing out anything old or expired. Then, remove the parts such as racks, drawers, and other attachments. You can wash these under running water, soak them in soapy water, and let them air dry.

For the fridge’s interior, mix equal parts water and vinegar to create a cleaning solution and use a damp cloth to clean its surfaces. Afterward, rinse and wipe everything dry. Make sure to clean the door seal, exterior surface, and condenser coils. Once the removable components have dried, replace them and arrange your food items.

Oven 

Since the oven is used for cooking food, you can expect a buildup of grime and food debris. To start cleaning, remove all the racks and debris at the bottom of the oven. If you don’t want to use a store-bought cleaner, use a mixture of water and vinegar, which is a great disinfectant. Scrub the inside with the cleaning solution and leave it on for a few hours before wiping it with a damp cloth.

Afterward, clean the oven door with a vinegar-and-water solution and a soft cloth. For the racks, you can wash them with dishwashing soap, or if there’s a lot of grime to remove, the same DIY cleaning solution. If your oven has a self-cleaning mode, you can also use it and wash the racks by hand. 

Stove

Cleaning your stove will depend on whether it’s a gas or electric machine. For a gas stove, remove the grates and burners and soak them in soapy water. Then, clean the stove’s surface with a vinegar-and-water mixture before wiping it dry with a soft cloth. 

To clean your electric stove, make sure the burners are cool before removing them. Wipe away spills, dirt, and grease with a soapy sponge or cloth. Make sure the electrical connections don’t get wet! If you need help, talk to a kitchen appliance specialist.
