Clean the fridge
Thoroughly clean the tricky spots and remove any food leftovers.
We can hardly imagine life in the kitchen without a fridge. This kitchen appliance is simply a must, no matter how big it is, whether it has an integrated freezer compartment or not or no ice dispenser or not. Every refrigerator needs regular and thorough cleaning.
Before you start, you must first turn off the refrigerator from the electrical network for safety reasons. Then clean out all foods and remove them that already seem unfit for you. Take out everything and scrub the inside of the fridge with a sponge dipped in lukewarm soapy water. Sprinkle some baking soda on stubborn stains to make them easier to remove. Then wipe again with the sponge and dry with a soft cloth. To remove unpleasant odors, you must refresh the interior walls with an all-purpose cleaner and wipe them again with a microfibre cloth.
Also wipe the grid down with a dry sheet of kitchen paper. Do not forget the door seals, they also need to be cleaned.
Only after doing all this can you put the clean shelves and drawers back in and then put the food back in the fridge.
Protect your hands from aggressive cleaning agents by always wearing rubber gloves with every cleaning.

Clean the oven
It is not easy to clean a soiled oven with baked-in food and stubborn crust. But this needs to be done on a regular basis, a thorough cleaning is required at least twice a year to make the stove and hotplate look brand new. But before you start, prepare the necessary cleaning materials. Be careful here because the usual remedies may not be right for your stove or scratch its surface. For example, when cleaning ceramic hotplates, steel wool and aggressive cleaning agents are unthinkable.
First remove the small parts so that cleaning is easier for you. To achieve good results when cleaning the stove, you must first soak the dirt first. This allows you to easily remove burnt material from the surface. A vinegar cleaner would help a lot here. Allow the product to work for a few hours, then wipe with a dishwashing brush and a rag.

Then you have to act immediately! First, of course, you have to empty the dishwasher completely. Remove dishes and baskets! Then pull out the drain strainer and clean it according to the manufacturer's instructions. Also clean the door seals, as dirt usually starts there. A sponge and vinegar cleaner can be your first helpers here. Look for possible calcium deposits and if you notice them, use a lime cleaner from the drugstore to clean the area. Citric acid is also recommended. Only after you have done all this, you can reassemble all parts. And in the end, to complete the cleaning, run your dishwasher without dishes in the 60 degree or 95 degree program! Voila! They did it!
