WHAT ARE THE IDEAL ITEMS TO CLEAN APPLIANCES?
Appliances are expensive and weigh heavily in the pocket. You do not change the refrigerator every month, do you? Therefore, you must becareful and use the appropriate material.
To get started, separate:
- multi purpose detergent,
- soft sponges;
- soft bristle brushes;
- flannels and cleaning cloths.
It is important to avoid abrasive products that damage the equipment as much as it can release debris onto surfaces and food.
WHAT CARE IS NECESSARY TO MAINTAIN SAFETY?
To get started, remove all appliances from the wal loutlet. Even if you are cleaning the refrigerator, if it is next to the water purifier, it should also be disconnected from the power.
Remember that your safety comes first. Thus, you do not run the risk of shocks or damaging the appliance.
Also, do not use steel sponges or hard bristle brushes that can wear the surface, remove the enamel, and cause electric current to pass through.
If you think cleaning will spill liquid on the floor, wrap it with newspapers, floor cloths or carpets. So you do not slip.
Lastly, always remember to wear gloves when cleaning, to protect your hands from excessive contact with products, brushes and sponges.
WHAT PRODUCTS SHOULD BE AVOIDED IN CLEANING?
As tempting as it may seem, start by avoiding the home made mixes. They are not as efficient and can cause problems like:
- damageyour electros;
- leave a strongs mell;
- contaminate their food.
Be ware of bleach, which is harmful to health if swallowed and also stains clothing and surfaces. Alcohol should be avoided, as its contact with wires and parts of the electro where it passes current can cause sparks, bringing risks of serious accidents with the electricenergy.
Also, avoid corrosive products: you can end up harming the enamel of the refrigerator or the stainless steel of the stove, for example. Each surface requires an appropriate product. Find out which one is ideal and use it as directed on the label.

The removable parts must be undocked for individual cleaning. Thus, you avoid the accumulation of germs in the rubber, for example. Wash them on tap using running water and mild detergent. You can still tap water with a little mild soap and rinse abundantly then.
The base cannot be under the faucet. Wipe it with a cloth soaked in warm water and a littlemild soap. Then paper towel or a flannel to remove the excess. Expect to dry everything before re assembling it.
Wash the shelves and drawers in running water, directly in the sink, with a soft sponge and liquid soap. In parts where there is no stainless steel, you can use a degreasing product. It is important to always keep it clean and free from residues to prevent contamination of food.
Ovens require special care. Whenever you use it, expect to cool enough to avoid burns and wipe with a cloth soaked in water to take any remaining loose food.
Use a specific product that does notdamage the inside surface of the appliance. Leave it in the oven for a few minutes to make it easier to remove dirt. Then wipe with a sponge or damp cloth.
The grates can be removed and washed in the sink with running water, a degreaser and a soft sponge. You need to dry them before you put everything in place, okay?
