How To Clean From A Fire
Household cleaning is not exactly on our list of "fun things to do". Sometimes we don’t even know how often household items should be cleaned. If you’re like me, I clean when it looks dirty (or company is coming over!) There has got to be a better way. I am always looking for new tips or suggestions.
I recently came across this article from Today.com in the Home section. Take a look at some of these tips:
- Remove items from the door shelves.
- Wipe down all shelves as well as any sticky and drippy containers with baking soda and water solution. Dry and return items.
- Wipe the gasket/seal with a mild detergent solution. Dry with a clean cloth.
- Pro tip from Mr. Appliance President Doug Rogers: To test the seal of the gasket, shut the door on a dollar bill and if it slides out easily, the gasket isn’t sealing tightly. Replace it to save energy and wear and tear on the fridge.
- Wipe down the door, edges, handle and top of the refrigerator with mild detergent solution. Dry.
- For stainless steel refrigerators, apply coconut oil with a soft cloth. Buff to remove excess.
- Because yeast and mold can build up on the dispenser spout, it should be cleaned every month or as needed.
- Pro tip from Carl Major, owner of Major Appliance, AC and Heating in Slidell, Louisiana:Major recommends cleaning the spout with a pipe cleaner (or small brush) alternately dipped in warm water, vinegar and hydrogen peroxide (in that order).
- For added safety, make sure to replace external water filters as recommended by the manufacturer.
- The ice dispenser drawer actually can harbor mold and yeast, according to Allen Rathey, founder of Healthy House Institute.
- To clean the ice bin, turn the ice-maker off, remove the bin and discard the ice. Using lukewarm water and a mild dish detergent, wash the bin, rinse well and then dry.
- Cleaning option: Substitute distilled white vinegar for dish detergent.
