Now, I'm the first person to put off all those overdue cleaning tasks in the home (and I'm not just talking about flicking a duster around). But there comes a time when the job has to be done.
Over the next few weeks, thebestof Lowestoft will publish a few helpful pointers which might just assist you with your spring cleaning.
Here's part one...How to clean your refrigerator fast:
First, unplug it. Use the crevice attachment of the vacuum or a flat long-handled brush to carefully remove the dust from the coils underneath or on the back side of the fridge, because accumulated dust can cause the motor to overheat and costs more to run.
Pull out the vegetable drawers, empty them, and clean. Go through items and throw away old or expired items. (If your food always seems to go bad before you use it, learn how to keepyour food from spoiling too soon). Wipe down all surfaces (shelves and doors) with a mix of 4 tablespoons of baking soda to a quart of water. Clean the sealing rubber gasket around the door with a damp sponge only (no caustic cleaners).
And to keep on top of the cleaning why not make a resolution to repeat this process every month?
And, if like me, you don't always have the time or inclination to pop on the Marigolds and start scubbing, why not contact Louise and her team at Carlton Cleaning in Lowestoft.
