Homeowners often have many questions about appliance cleaning. After all, you wouldn’t want anything to go wrong and cause malfunctions. How to clean outside of appliances? How to care for stainless steel appliances? How to deep clean them? Read on for expert advice on how to clean small appliances from Tom McNulty’s Clean Like a Man: Housekeeping for Men and the Women Who Love Them.

How do I clean a microwave?

  • Wipe down the interior with a damp sponge or cotton cloth as soon as you see something has spilled, splattered or bubbled over.

  • Make the microwave work for you when dealing with dried on foods – boil a small bowl of water in the microwave, wait a few minutes while the steam softens the hardened food, then wipe with a damp cloth or sponge.

  • Avoid abrasive cleaners or pads on microwave surfaces.

What is the easiest way to clean a blender?

  • The easiest way to clean a blender container is to run it through the dishwasher. Wipe down the base with a soft cloth or sponge and degreaser.

  • If you need it cleaned right away, fill the blender halfway with warm water, put in a drop or two of liquid dishwashing soap and run on high for ten seconds. Rinse.

How do you deep clean a coffee grinder?

  • Because coffee beans contain oils that can become rancid and cause coffee to taste bitter, it’s important to keep your coffee grinder clean. Wipe out the grinder with a damp paper towel or sponge after each use.

  • Clean lid with water and dishwashing liquid, rinse and dry.

What is the best way to clean the inside of a coffee maker?

  • Clean all washable parts by running them through the dishwasher, or hand wash with liquid detergent and warm water to remove coffee residue.

  • Run white vinegar through the system monthly to keep the coffeemaker free of mineral deposits. Fill the carafe with about three-quarters full of white vinegar and pour into the reservoir and start the unit. Then pour a full carafe of fresh water through the coffeemaker to flush out the vinegar residue.

How do you get baked-on grease out of a toaster oven?

  • As with most things, the easiest way to clean the toaster oven is when the splatters and boil-overs are fresh – before they become baked on and difficult to remove.

  • Make it a habit to wash the rack, crumb tray, broiler pan and even the glass door (if possible) in the dishwasher as often as possible.

  • Otherwise, clean the rack, oven tray, and inside the glass door with a lite scrub pad and soapy water, then rinse with clear water.

  • Wipe the exterior with a damp cloth or sponge.

What is the easiest way to clean a toaster?

  • Empty the crumb tray after each use over the sink or in the wastebasket.

  • Sponge off plastic toaster with soapy water and spray a little window cleaner on a cloth and wipe chrome toasters clean.
