How To Clean Your Kitchen Appliances Inside And Out

Margie Craig

Fingerprints on your stainless steel refrigerator, splatters in your microwave, stains on your range-top and spilled food inside your oven can all make your kitchen look and feel dirty. These appliances all be cleaned in just one day and easily with the right cleansers and tools for the job. See below for tips on how to clean each of your appliances.


  • Exterior. Wipe down the exterior of your refrigerator with soap and water for white and black refrigerators, and then dried with a microfiber cloth. For stainless steel exteriors you'll need to use a stainless steel cleaner that can be purchased at your local hardware store. Be sure to use a microfiber cloth when cleaning stainless steel.
  • Interior. Take everything out of your refrigerator and wipe down the entire interior with hot, soapy water, then rinse with clean water. Dry the interior with a clean, dry cloth. To keep the interior clean, you can line your shelves and drawers with contact paper. When there's a spill or it gets dirty, you can just take out the contact paper and replace it with a new piece.


  • Exterior. For black and white exteriors, wipe it with warm soapy water, rinse with clean water and then dry with a microfiber cloth. For stainless exteriors, use stainless steel cleaner.
  • Interior. For an easy way to clean the interior of your microwave, place a cup of water inside and turn it on for two minutes. Then take a wet cloth and use the steam inside of the microwave to help remove splatters and built up gunk inside. For tougher stains, use a gentle kitchen cleaner and a sponge, then rinse with clean water. To help keep your microwave clean, be sure to wipe up spills and splatters immediately and cover foods before heating them to minimize splatters.


  • Stove Top. Take off the grates (if your stove top has them), and wash them in the sink with hot soapy water. For cast iron grates, you can place the grates in a garbage bag with a 1/2 cup of ammonia. Allow them to soak overnight and rinse them with warm water. To clean ceramic stove tops, sprinkle baking soda on the stove top, then add a little bit of vinegar to a rag and gently scrub away stains and grease.
  • Oven. If your oven is self cleaning, just follow the instructions that came with your oven. If it isn't self cleaning, you can sprinkle baking soda and scrub it with a little bit of vinegar on a rag inside your oven for a more natural cleaner.

Cleaning your appliances takes just a little bit of time and a little elbow grease. Be sure to use gentle cleansers so as to not scratch your appliances.

For more information or repair tips, contact a kitchen appliance supplier, such as Arnold's Appliance, or the manufacturer.

Exploring Bedroom Furniture, Decorations and Layouts

Hi, I'm Victor Grayson. The bedroom is my sanctuary. After working at a labor intensive job all day, I look forward to falling into bed and relaxing. As a result, I really took the time to prepare my bedroom for the ultimate in relaxation. I paid close attention to the different types of furniture, bedding and decorations that would work well in that space. I used a variety of techniques to make sure my bedroom made it easy to rest without distractions. That means that my room is free of electronics and light emitting devices, beyond the single lamp on the bedside table. However, there are many different ways to set up the bedroom space. I will use this site to discuss the different types of bedroom layouts you can create. I will also talk about the wide range of furniture items you can choose for your sleeping space.
