Clean Your Appliances With an Earth-Friendly Attitude

Sunrise In SpaceAs you walk down the aisle in nearly any grocery store, you’re greeted by high-priced cleaners that have every chemical mixture possible. Although these chemical combinations are effective, they’re not necessarily good for the Earth. Take a close look at some of the ways that you can clean those appliances without relying on chemicals. The Earth and your health will thank you in the end.

Open the Refrigerator’s Door

You may place a baking-soda container in your refrigerator so that odors are neutralized, but it doesn’t scrub the interior walls for you. Grab a spray bottle, and add an equal amount of water and vinegar to it. Shake up the mixture and scrub. Vinegar is very acidic, and it kills off germs and fungus with a very low concentration. Use a soft rag during your scrubbing process in order to protect the refrigerator’s walls from any scratches.

Wipe Down Those Exteriors

Combine two cups of hot water with a half teaspoon of both castile soap and club soda, and you have an all-purpose cleaner. Before you contact your Milwaukee dishwasher repair professional, wipe off the appliance’s exterior. The dishwasher may look clean inside, but its exterior is often overlooked. This cleaning mixture provides a degreasing component along with a stain remover. The dishwasher and refrigerator surfaces can look brand new once again.

Tackling Moldy Issues

Mold can appear in your dishwasher or refrigerator. Depending on the strain, the mold’s spores can be harmful when they’re inhaled. Fight off the mold by mixing one cup of water with a half-cup of hydrogen peroxide. This natural cleaner is a disinfectant, and it will clear any mold from growing in the area. Wear gloves when you apply it, however, because it can irritate the skin at times.

For Those Glass Surfaces

Don’t postpone cleaning those glass surfaces because they’re just too frustrating. Pour some club soda into a spray bottle with a squeeze of lemon. Spray this mixture onto the glass, and wipe it clean. Club soda is a great stain remover with a polished appearance afterward while the lemon removes any grease from the surface. Microwaves, ovens and even your kitchen window can be cleaned with this green alternative.

Don’t Forget to Vacuum

Your refrigerator has another area that needs to be cleaned. The coils hidden on the rear side are usually forgotten. As the coils attract grease and dust, the appliance works hard to cool off the interior. Every few months, pull the appliance away from the wall and vacuum the exterior. By keeping it clean, you reduce its power usage. Your home will have a lower electrical bill, which contributes directly to a healthier planet.
