Great Appliance Tips
Your refrigerator will operate more efficiently if once per year, you should clean the condensing coils located either at the back, or underneath, your refrigerator. These condensing coils are needed for proper cooling of the refrigerator. When coils become dirty, the refrigerator has to work harder – and dirty coils can shorten the lifespan of your refrigerator.
Remove mildew from your fridge with a soft cloth dampened in a mild water-and-ammonia solution: 1 gallon of water mixed with Ω cup of ammonia. Next, rinse the interior with a mix of water and baking soda. Do not use abrasive cleaners, bleach, or concentrated cleaning agents.
Help your food last longer by storing all sliced meats, dairy items (such as butter), and fresh produce in the proper drawers in your refrigerator. This will help them last longer. Fridge drawers are designed to maintain the temperature and/or the humidity level at an ideal setting for these foods. Specific types of food, such as fresh produce or packaged meats will last longer in these drawers than they would if left in the main part of the fridge.
Never place aluminum foil under your burner drip bowls, or under your ovens baking element. This can cause the stoves burners to short out. Aluminum foil placed under baking elements reflects heat back towards the element. Do not do this, as it shortens the life of your burners. Instead, replace the drip pans with new ones. Elements will work more efficiently because they will reflect more heat energy towards the pan creating better cooking results.
Keeping the dryer clean can be beneficial to its overall lifespan, produce better results and be safer when you clean the lint filter after each load. If lint filters are not cleaned regularly, drying time increases ñ costing you more on your hydro bill. Be sure to clean the duct leading outside at least once per year. Lint accumulates in the duct causing an increase in drying times. It can also pose a potential fire hazard and has been the cause of many house fires.
How much clothes should I put in the washer: To fill most washing machines without causing damage you should fill the washer with dry clothes only, until the amount of clothes you put in reaches the top of the agitator. Don’t press them down or try to stuff more in. This will result in a poor-quality wash. Clothes will be their cleanest when you follow these simple suggestions. Over-filling your washing machine could cause mechanical problems.
What’s the best way to get rid of detergent residue left on clothes: Try one of the following: Start the washer, add the detergent, allow detergent to dissolve completely, then add your clothes. Try reducing the amount of detergent you use. Increase the wash water temperature. Use a liquid detergent instead of powder.
What’s the best way to get rid of deodorant stains left on clothes: Remove stains caused by the use of deodorant sticks or sprays, Scrub the stained area with white vinegar. Saturate the area with denatured alcohol, scrub, and rinse. Launder as you normally would using your favourite detergent.
How do you remove ink stains from clothes: Try the following: For ballpoint pen and other ink stains, spray the stain with hairspray until the area looks wet; allow it to soak briefly. Hand scrub using a heavy amount of liquid detergent, then launder. If stain remains, repeat.
How do you remove food odours from your microwave?
For persistent food odours in your microwave, try mixing 1 cup of water with either 6 tablespoons of baking soda (mix well) or 1/2 cup of lemon juice. Next, place either solution in a microwave-safe dish and heat for 2 to 3 minutes on high power. Wipe the inside of the oven with a paper towel or cloth.
Dishwashers save money and time. Here are some facts: Dishwashers use less water than when you fill a kitchen sink. In fact, up to 2/3 less! Most dishwashers cost less than $45.00 annually to operate. So, why do dishes by hand? The hotter the water, the cleaner the dishes. There is no need to pre-rinse or scrub if the water is over 135 F. Powdered detergents work more efficiently than gels or tabs because they have more active ingredients to remove tough food stains.
How to remove bad odours from waste disposers: Run orange or lemon rinds through your disposer to deodorize it. Generously sprinkle ice cubes with a household scouring powder and run through the disposer without water. This not only removes bad odours but will also leave a clean, sweet smell.
