We are in the middle of the holiday season, which means the traffic has probably picked up in your home. Your microwave and dishwasher are working over time! Here are some helpful tips to keep those appliances clean and fresh this holiday season…
- Microwave: Lemon and water in the microwave. Pour boiling water over lemons in a microwave-safe bowl, and cook in the microwave for five minutes. The steam will loosen any particles in the microwave so you can easily wipe it down; plus the lemons make it smell great.
- Dishwasher: Vinegar wash. Start with an empty dishwasher. Place a cup of white vinegar in a dishwasher-safe container on the upper rack of the machine. Run the dishwasher through a hot water cycle. This will wash away grease and grime and remove musty odors. Sprinkle one cup of baking soda across the bottom of the dishwasher. Run a short hot water cycle. The dishwasher will be fresh smelling and have a brightened, clean interior.
I hope these tips are helpful and give your appliances a fresh boost! Take before and after pictures, you will be amazed!
