All-Natural Appliance Cleaners that Actually Work! – Appliance Rescue Service

Ready to get your kitchen cleaned up after all the holiday festivities?

There has been a lot of research lately on the hazards that commercial cleaners can pose to you and your family, and while we’re not here to debate the issue, I think we can all agree that we’d like more all-natural products in our lives.

 

So with that, Appliance Rescue Service – one of the best appliance repair companies in Dallas, Texas – is here to offer you a few all-natural appliance cleaners that actually work!

 

Oven Cleaner

Break out the baking soda, water, vinegar, and a little elbow grease for this one! You’ll want to mix about ½ cup baking soda and 3 Tablespoons of water to create a paste. Then, gently rub all over the interior of your oven into the whole thing is covered. Let it sit for 12 hours or overnight; then, begin removing with a rag and water this next morning. Spray any remaining paste with vinegar in a spray bottle. The remaining baking soda will foam up, and you’ll be able to remove it with a clean cloth. Repeat until the entire oven is spic and span!

 

Garbage Disposal Cleaner

Freshening and sanitizing your drain is easy with ingredients you already have in your pantry! Start by running the hottest water you can for a few minutes in order to loosen the gunk and build-up. Next, slowly pour a cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by a cup of lemon juice. This will cause it to foam – and that’s how you know it’s working! Cover the drain and let it sit for half an hour, then run the hot water again.

 

Stainless Steel Cleaner

Stainless steel appliances are still very popular, and they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon! Get them clean and fingerprint-free by dousing them in vinegar, then using a microfiber cloth, rub in the direction of the grain. Next, dip the cloth in olive oil, and again, rub with the grain of the appliance.

Cleaning Tips for your Cooktop - Appliance Rescue Service

Depending on what type of cooktop you have – gas, electric, glass top, etc. – your cleaning style will vary. Gas cooktops have an open flame, allowing the grates and other parts of the cooktop to get dirty during everyday use. Glass cooktops keep everything in, but sometimes stains can appear on the glass. What is a homeowner to do?!

Appliance Rescue Service not only does appliance repair in Dallas, but our team wants to equip you with ideas to better maintain your appliances as well. Here are a few cleaning tips for your cooktop:

Gas Cooktop

Gas cooktops are oh so much fun to cook on, but not very fun to clean. Even cleaning along the way – before gunk gets stuck – is not always feasible.

·      When you’re ready for a deep clean, remove the grates and burner caps and place them in a sink full of hot water with dish soap. The dish soap will work to dissolve the grease and grime that has built up on the grates overtime.

·      Next, use a paper towel to remove any loose crumbs on the cooktop, then spray it all down with stainless steel cleaner (if you have a stainless gas cooktop) or half vinegar/half water if you have ceramic. Let it sit for a few minutes, and then wipe it off.

·      Use an old toothbrush to scrub off any hard stains.

·      One completed, rinse the grates and burner caps, replace on the cooktop, and voila – a sparkling clean cooktop!

Glass Electric Cooktop

Glass cooktops seem like they are easier to clean – and in general they are – but when you get a ring on the glass from a hot object being on there too long, it can be hard to remove.

·      We suggest first rubbing the stain with a silicone spatula. The silicone won’t scratch the glass, and may help to loosen the stain.

·       Next, make a paste by mixing 4 tablespoons of baking soda with a little water and rub that on the stain.

·      Place a warm, wet rag on top for 30 minutes, then wipe clean.

·      Repeat if the stain persists.

Happy cleaning, and if you ever need cooktop repair in Dallas, call the experts at Appliance Rescue Service!
