Maintenance Monday – kitchen cleaning and maintenance tips

kitchen-sink

Here are some cleaning and maintenance tips for your kitchen:

Counter Tops: Counters tops should not be used as a chopping block or hot plate. Please use a cutting board for chopping or hot pads to protect the counter surface. Counters can be cleaned with a soft detergent like soft scrub.

Dishwasher: For optimum efficiency, do not overload your dishwasher and only use dishwasher detergent recommended for automatic dishwashers. To clean the exterior of the dishwasher, wipe with a warm, damp, sudsy cloth.  Rinse and wipe dry. Avoid gritty or harsh cleansers, as they will damage the finish. Generally the interior of the dishwasher is self-cleaning. The tub and strainer should be periodically checked for foreign objects.

Garbage Disposal: While your disposal is operating, always keep the cold water running. Sharpening of the blades can be achieved by periodically inserting ice cubes. To deodorize the disposal, insert orange or lemon peels.  Do not use drain cleaning chemicals in your disposal. Never put bones, celery, onion peels, cornhusks, artichoke leaves, metal or glass down your disposal.  In addition, never insert paper products, matches or cigarettes. Grease and coffee grounds will also clog your garbage disposal.
