If you are anything like me you will soon be spending a lot of your time in the kitchen baking cookies, pie’s and preparing to entertain! As the holiday season begins, make sure your appliances are prepared for the demands you will place on them.
- Pull your refrigerator from the wall and clean the condenser coils in back with a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment. Also, vacuum dust from the front lower grille and clean the drip pan and the drain leading to it (if your unit has one).
- Clean the oven and stove drip pans on your electric range. Clean the surface burner on your gas stove to ensure proper flame level.
- De-stench your in-sink garbage disposal by packing it with ice cubes and 1/4 cup of baking soda; then turn it on. After the ice grinding noise stops, pour a kettle full of hot water into the sink.
- Check the dishwasher stainer and washer arm; clean if necessary.
