Clever Ways to Look After Your Kitchen*

The one room of the house or apartment where we spend the most time; the kitchen is, undoubtedly, also one of the rooms we spend the most money on. Not just because we keep stuffing that fridge with food, though, but because those beautiful appliances always are so expensive.

If you’ve recently upgraded your kitchen and would like to show it some extra love or if you simply dread spending lots of money on repairs, this post is for you. Here is a handful of great ways to look after your kitchen so that you can enjoy it for as long as possible.

#1 Clean that fridge
The fridge is definitely an expensive part of your kitchen, and it would be difficult to live the way we’re used to without it. It kind of feels like a disaster when it breaks, and you’d have to drop everything in your hands to call someone to come and fix it - or risk losing all your food in a few hours. Have a look at in case of emergency.
One of the most important things you can do for your fridge is to clean the condenser coils. These coils make sure that the heat is removed from your fridge so that all that food can stay nice and cool, but dust and other debris can make it harder for them to function as they should.

Give your fridge a good clean once a month, and pay particular attention to the condenser coils so that it lasts for as long as possible. If you do have to call for a fridge repair, make sure you find someone who can show up on a short notice - have a look at so that you have a backup.

#2 Give your dishwasher some love
Another hard-working appliance that we hardly think about. If you’re lucky enough to have a dishwasher in your house, you better take good care of it. Start by cleaning out the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher as it catches those large bits of food from getting lodged in the drain.

You’ll be taking care of it on a daily basis by making sure you’re not overloading it as well. If you fill it up too much, you’re making it work a lot harder than it should - and you’ll be wearing down the components much faster.

#3 Taking care of the oven
The oven is the one part of the kitchen we use all the time, at least if you like to cook, and it’s also a very low-maintenance appliance. Believe it or not, but you don’t have to do much at all to keep your oven happy even if you use it a lot. Just make sure that its surfaces are clean, and give the oven a scrub once in a while.

Many ovens are self-cleaning too, by the way, and an oven cleaner might even be too hard on self-cleaning ones. Just use the cleaning feature on your oven, and you’re good to go.

Taking care of your home isn’t that hard when you manage to do it regularly. Plus, you’re making sure that it will last for much longer than it would if you didn’t clean it so that you save money as well.
