Keep it clean, keep it longer

When it comes to spending major money on kitchen appliances, such as dishwashers, refrigerators and such, it’s important to look after them as much as possible, to keep them in your life as long as you can. Nobody wants to throw money away, so regular cleaning and good quality maintenance is key. You might not know where to start, other than basic cleaning, but it’s vital to do a little more than that if you don’t want to be buying another set of equipment sooner than necessary!

We’ll talk about a few basic and effective ways to maintain and clean your kitchen appliances below, but if you want to read more, you can find more tips here.

Cheap, effective cleaning agents

You don’t need to be buying big named cleaning brands necessarily, as you can find highly effective products in your kitchen cupboard! Baking soda is a fantastic multi-use cleaning agent, and is best used as a deodoriser for your appliances. Leaving a thin layer on the bottom of your dishwasher is a good way to clean it right out, and it can also be used in fridges and microwaves. Similarly, vinegar used in equal parts with water is fantastic for eradicating build up. Regular cleaning is the most important step to maintenance, as allowing build up can cause permanent damage or stains.

Electrical maintenance

Checking regularly for frayed cords and visible wires will help the electrical side of things stay in tip-top condition. If the electrics aren’t working then basically your appliance isn’t working either! Remember to check the plugs too, and make sure the prongs are in proper working order. Overall though, your white goods don’t last like they used to.

Read the instructions!

It’s too easy to just jump straight in and do away with the instruction book, but the manufacturer’s instructions are the most important set of guidelines you can have. Not every appliance is the same, and one size never generally fits all. Read the instructions and follow them to keep your appliance in its best working order.

Choose a quality coverage plan

If you’re spending a large amount of money on an appliance, you want to protect it against breakdowns. Sometimes home insurance isn’t the best way to protect against breakdowns, so consider a coverage plan if your company offers one, as most will. A little money per month, or in one lump sum, will be better than a huge bill when your appliance breaks down.

Follow this advice and your appliances will stay in your life and in good working order for much longer.
