Household hints

Occasionally cleaning household appliances like stoves and refrigerators may seem obvious, but what about equipment that does the cleaning--like the dishwasher and the washing machine? Give these often overlooked appliances a cleaning with these tips.

Unclog the dishwasher. The cleaner the dishwasher, the cleaner your dishes will turn out after going through a wash cycle. Take a moment to clean the dishwasher's filter. Usually located on the inside bottom of the machine. This detachable filter becomes clogged with food and debris over time, so empty it regularly to keep it running efficiently. 

Degunk your garbage disposal. Use a natural abrasive combo such as ice and salt to loosen grime from the blades. Though it will be loud, run the disposal until the ice is gone. When finished, you can grind up a lime or lemon wedge to deodorize the drain. 

Give your washing machine a wash. Avoid musty smelling bedding and towels by sanitizing the machine and removing mildew buildup every few months. To do this, run a hot wash cycle without a load and add one cup of bleach to the dispenser or directly into the machine.

Give your vacuum more power. Keep your vacuum maintained with simple fixes like unclogging hoses, cleaning the rotating brush and changing the filter.
