Tips on How to Clean Electrical Appliances in a Proper ways

by : rhusain

Sometimes we feel afraid to clean or wash the electrical appliance, because we don't want to make the motor wet. Here are some ideas on how to clean your electrical appliances in a proper way.

ELECTRIC PERCOLATORS have their heating element in the base and it is important not to get it wet. Wipe the outside carefully with a damp cloth and polish it with a dry one. The removable parts can go into the dishpan. Wash the inside of the percolator with hot suds, rinse it well, and wipe it dry. About once a week clean the tube and the spout carefully with a percolator brush. All percolators, except those made of aluminum, can be given a thorough cleaning now and then by filling them partially with water containing about a teaspoon of baking soda. Let the solution "perk" for several minutes. This removes stale oils that may have penetrated the metal and improves the flavor of your brew. Try cream of tartar from the grocery, in the same way, for aluminum pots that might be darkened by soda. The care of the outside of your coffee maker will depend upon the metal.

ELECTRIC MIXERS AND FRUIT EXTRACTORS. Wipe the motor casings, or housings with a damp cloth. The removable parts can be washed like other equipment of similar material, dried, and replaced. For pushing down batters rubber mixers are better than spatulas or spoons which might cause damage if they were caught in the beaters. Your instructions may call for oiling.

MANY AUTOMATIC WASHING MACHINES rinse themselves and have sealed motors that do not require oiling. Washing machines which require oil should be lubricated regularly.

A SPECIAL MONTHLY CLEANING with detergents such as Calgonite and Electrasol, made for automatic dishwashers, is recommended by the makers of some washers. The washing machine is filled with hot water and when agitation begins, a solution made by adding two cups of the detergent to a gallon of water is poured in. To this is added four cups of household bleach. The washer is then allowed to run through its cycle. This solution cuts out accumulated soap curd, lint, and scum. In some non-automatic electric washers the washing mechanism can be taken out and cleaned. The wringer rolls of these machines also should be washed now and then, whether they are removable or not, and the tub should be washed inside and out, rinsed and wiped dry. You will have to be guided in such details by your instruction booklet. Washers should be left with their doors slightly open. If they are kept on a porch they should be protected with waterproof covers.

Wipe the outside of the electric percolators with damp cloth, and wash the inside of the percolators with the hot suds. Oil the washing machine regularly. Use the detergent made for automatic dishwasher for a special monthly cleaning of the washing machine.
