Here are some tips to keep your appliances in their best condition.

  • Clean your appliances in and out. Wipe down the door gaskets, vacuum the condenser oil, dust off the coils with a soft cloth.
  • Stock your fridge and freezer with foods, so it stays cooler every time you open the door.
  • Make sure your fridge and freezer run at the proper temperature, which is between 37° and 40° for the fridge, and 0° for the freezer, to keep it at its most efficient.
  • Reposition your fridge or freezer. Make sure that it has airflow behind it by placing it an inch or two away from the wall.
  • Prevent ice buildup in the freezer by spraying a small amount of cooking spray inside.

Washing Machine

  • Use low-sudsing detergents for high-efficiency top-loaders and front-loading washers.
  • Make sure to leave the door ajar after washing a load of laundry to prevent molds and mildews and allow the inter to air properly.
  • Wash the washer with a solution of equal parts of vinegar and water. Using a detergent or vinegar, you can also run a hot-wash load with the empty washer to keep the interior clean.
  • Avoid putting too much detergent as it can leave residues on your laundry and the interior machine, which may lead to problems.

  • Don’t forget to clean your racks.
  • Slide your oven out and clean underneath and behind it.

Dishwasher

  • Regularly clean the filter.
  • You can use vinegar to clean out your dishwasher to remove any stuck food particles or residual detergent left behind.
