Love Your Kitchen

Take time to love your appliances and they will love you back. Follow these steps from Mr. Appliance® to cook up some romance, instead of frustration with inefficient appliances.

Give Your Oven Some Lovin’

  • Don’t run the self-cleaning cycle within one week of a big dinner - ovens have a tendency to fail during or right after a self-cleaning cycle.
  • Clean the reflector bowls under the burners to help cook more efficiently.

XOXO For Your Dishwasher

  • If you’re unsure whether or not an item is dishwasher safe, just wash it by hand.
  • Run an empty dishwasher with a cup of white vinegar to eliminate odors and buildup.

Keep Your Garbage Disposal Smelling Like Roses

  • Place a handful of ice cubes in the disposal. Add lemon, orange or lime peels and run disposal with cold water for 15 to 30 seconds. Continue to rinse with cold water.
  • To avoid clogging your garburator, remember to not pour grease down the drain.

Rekindle Your Refrigerator

  • Unplug your refrigerator and use a vacuum to remove any dust from the coils. This will help it run more efficiently and trim your utility bills.
  • Make sure it’s loaded properly. Contents should be evenly distributed.
