3 Household Appliances You Need to Clean November 9, 2020

3 Household Appliances You Need to Clean, ,

While you might be diligent about washing the dishes and scrubbing the tub, you may not think about your appliances as often. Since many of these machines are used daily, they require a bit of maintenance and cleaning to keep them working. Here are a few appliances to add to your housekeeping list. 

What Home Appliances Require Regular Cleaning?

1. Washing Machine

For a machine that’s constantly washing, you might assume that cleaning is redundant. However, over time, the oils, dead skin, and dirt from your clothes will build up in the washing machine.

The device can also harbor mold and mildew growth due to the constant presence of moisture. If you want your clothes to smell cleaner and the appliance to last longer, you’ll need to add this to your housekeeping to-do list.

2. Coffee Machine 

housekeepingThe secret to a truly delicious cup of coffee may not be the beans alone but the cleanliness of your coffee maker. Over time, mold and mildew can grow inside the steam-filled nooks.

If you have hard or mineral-rich water, scale can also build up inside the machine—a chalky residue of calcium and magnesium. Sometimes, the coffee grinds can also leave organic deposits behind, creating yeast overgrowth or a stale coffee smell. Deep clean the coffee machine at least once a month to prevent these problems.

3. Refrigerator

This large appliance is constantly being used, making it quite a nuisance to clean. However, it’s easy for crumbs and sticky spills to build up inside the shelves and compartments as you move groceries in and out.

This can lead to rapid bacterial growth, which can cause your fresh produce to spoil faster. Wipe down the shelves and drawers with a sanitizing cleaning solution once every few weeks.
