The dishwasher, the oven range and the refrigerator are the key kitchen appliances. Any house won't function well without them. 

 

How to Clean a Dishwasher

 

1.  Clean the interior the interior thoroughly by removing all buildups. To do this, mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda with 16 ounces of water. Place your mixture in a microwave-safe bowl and heat it for 2 minutes. Transfer it to a spray bottle once cool. Spritz it in the insides of your dishwasher.  Do the same with the rim. Then wipe these areas clean using a microfiber cloth.

 

2. Free the cutlery container of any debris. Shake the basket upside down over a trash for a perfect clean up.

 

3. Once your dishwasher is empty, pour ¼ cup baking soda into the detergent dispenser and run a rinse cycle on the hottest temperature.

 

4. Use a vinegar-dampened cloth to clean out the detergent dispenser and wipe down the spray arms. This will remove residues.

 

How to Clean an Oven Range

 

1. Read your oven's manual to see if it is self-cleaning; then, follow the instructions on setting it to self-cleaning mode. If needs to be cleaned manually, wipe the interior with a damp cloth. To soften any buildups, fill a casserole dish halfway with water, add the juice of 3 lemons plus the rinds, and bake at 350° for 1 hour. Let cool for 15 minutes. Apply a paste of baking soda and water to all sides with a nonabrasive sponge. Wet the sponge in the lemon water, then scrub. Wipe clean with a damp paper towel.

 

2. Pull the unit away from the wall and, using the hose attachment, remove crumbs and dust from the floor. Push it back in.

 

3. Apply a paste of equal parts baking soda and dish soap plus a few drops of water. (This is safe on any cooktop, electric or gas.) Let sit for 10 minutes, then wipe thoroughly with a damp cloth. Buff dry.

 

4. Place the racks and grates in a plastic garbage bag, spray generously with a degreasing cleaner (like Simple Green), and tie the bag closed. Let sit for 1 hour, then rinse each piece in a sink filled with hot, soapy water.

 

 

5. To de-grease the overhead filter, remove it and soak it for 15 minutes in a sink filled with hot water and some dishwashing liquid. Rinse and dry. Next, clean the piece on the wall: Apply a paste of baking soda and dish soap and let sit for 10 minutes. Wipe clean with a soft sponge and buff dry.
