5 Spots in the Kitchen to Clean Before the Holidays

With the holidays upon us, now is the time to jump in and get your kitchen ready for entertaining and holiday baking. While we all remember to wipe down the countertops and mop the floors, Appliance Rescue is here to share some kitchen nooks and crannies that are often forgotten:

Range Hood

When cooking on the cooktop, we often look down. But do you ever look up? Grease and dust often accumulate up there and it’s not a pretty sight. Use a degreaser and stainless steel cleaner to get it sparkling clean in no time! (P.S. this also helps extend the life of your range hood.)

Small Appliances

Toasters, blenders, and other small appliances often accumulate food debris that goes unnoticed. Take all the appliances out and look at them with fresh eyes, giving them a once over to get them ready for company.

Trashcan

Grab a wet sponge and some soapy water and wipe down your trashcan to remove any spills that can get stuck on the trashcan. If you have a can with a lid, be sure to wipe any food particles out of the cracks.

Oven

We see a lot of holiday baking in your future, so make sure your oven is ready for the action! Create a paste with baking soda, warm water, and a sponge and gently wipe down the interior of the oven. We do not recommend using the self clean function, as we’ve found it can often create more damage than good for your oven and result in Dallas oven repair.

Refrigerator

As we know you’re planning to stock your refrigerator with lots of goodies, it’s better to start with a clean slate. Throw away any long lost leftovers and remove all expired condiments. Wipe out crumbs and spills, and you’re all set for entertaining!

If any of your appliances aren’t working properly, now is the time to get them fixed – before the holiday rush sets in! Call us at Appliance Rescue in Dallas, Texas for a fast, professional appliance repair today! We proudly serve Dallas, Fort Worth, Plano, Frisco, Richardson, Flower Mound, Lewisville, Addison, McKinney, Grapevine, and the entire Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

Chemical Free Cleaning: 2 Natural Ways to Clean a Microwave

The microwave is one of the most commonly used appliances in the kitchen, and yet many times it’s also overlooked when it comes to cleaning. At Appliance Rescue Service Dallas, we try to clean without harsh chemicals as much as possible. That’s why we wanted to bring you 2 great chemical free cleaning methods for cleaning your microwave that you may not know about:

 

1.  Lemon

Lemon is a natural cleaning agent, and a great one for cleaning the microwave! Grab a microwave safe bowl and fill it with ½-1 cup of water. Then take your lemon, cut it in half, and squeeze it into the water. Throw the lemon rinds in for good measure! And here’s a tip for helping the water not to boil over: throw in a toothpick as well!

Now, set your microwave for 3 minutes and watch the magic work! The water will boil and create steam; the steam will loosen stubborn food particles that have been stuck to the sides of your microwave. After the 3 minutes are up, let it sit for a few minutes, then remove the water/lemon mixture, and wipe down the microwave with a clean cloth or sponge. A sparkling clean microwave awaits – and it smells good too!

2.  Vinegar

Don’t have a lemon on hand? No problem! Pour in some vinegar in place of the lemon. If you don’t like that vinegary smell, you can also add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil. Follow the chemical free cleaning instructions above and voila – clean microwave!
