Kitchen appliances are some of the most used items in your home. However, it's likely that they get overlooked when it comes to your cleaning routine. Kitchen appliances are often expensive to repair or replace, but regular cleaning can keep them functioning for longer, saving you money in the long-term. A clean, pleasant kitchen is also one you’re more likely to spend time cooking in, rather than opting for easy options such as microwave meals or having to deal with the daunting mess of cleaning kitchen appliances before you've even started cooking.
As a general rule, cleaning kitchen appliances becomes much easier if you tackle the mess as it happens by wiping up spills and cleaning up as much food residue as possible before it has time to congeal and stick. Most items can be cleaned simply and cheaply using a solution of baking soda and water and a sponge, or a solution of soapy warm water. This combined with more infrequent deep cleans will help keep your kitchen appliances in optimal condition for longer. The difficulty for many of us is finding the time to clean each kitchen appliance effectively, so we've come up with this easy to follow guide to give you a helping hand.
