How to Clean the Top 5 Appliances in Your Home Leave a comment


Clean your appliances the right way, so they stay germs free and look new longer. Here are the top 5 appliances in every household in Australia. Explore tips on how to clean them and how often. 

Daily, Weekly or Monthly Cleaning Tips for the Top 5 Appliances in Every Household in Australia

Refrigerator

Weekly: Wipe spills with antibacterial wipes or cloth as soon as you notice it. A quick check, rearrange and wipe before adding on new items after grocery shopping keeps the fridge organized and free from any surprises. 

Monthly: It’s time for a deep clean. And this is how you do it:

  • Remove all food, shelves, and drawers.
  • Check all content and throw away spoiled food and expired food.
  • Use a cloth to wipe everything down with warm water and soap / baking soda. This sanitizes and keeps the fridge clean.
  • Place shelves, drawers, and food that are still good back into the fridge.
  • Use fridge filters to keep the refrigerator smelling fresh. A more natural way to do this is to use either a bowl of dry ground coffee, baking soda, or half a lemon face down inside (change before it spoils).
  • Check your instruction manual to see how often you need to defrost or clean out your fridge too. This could vary depending on how old your refrigerator and freezer are and the brand also.

Stove

Daily: Wipe stove surfaces after each use or at the end of the day. Use an all-purpose cleaner and a cloth.

Monthly: Do a deep clean and even wipe down the range hood. Since you’ve been keeping the stove clean, this shouldn’t take too long. This monthly clean is more for the range hood.

Washing Machine

Daily / After Every Use: Leave the lid open after every wash to allow the inside to dry and keep fresh.
Monthly:

  • Run an empty cycle with just warm water, baking soda, and white vinegar once a month. This helps kill bacteria that may be growing.
  • Don’t forget the exterior. Wipe down the exterior and the door of the machine with a cloth too.

Dishwasher

After Each Use: Leftover food finds it’s way down to the drain of the dishwasher beneath the lower rack. Check the drain and ensure it’s clean to avoid clotting. Spraying the drain with white vinegar to keep it fresh. 

Monthly: Place a cup (dishwasher-safe) two-thirds filled with white vinegar on the top rack. Run a normal cycle with hot water. This helps sterilize the dishwasher. Wipe down the exterior, so it’s free from dust. 

Microwave

Daily: If you’re a heavy user, do the following daily. If you’re not, these steps can be done once a week or so. 

  • Wipe down the inside with soap and water. Or, microwave a bowl filled with lemon slices and water, for about 3-5 minutes or until the water boils. The steam created will loosen grease and grime, making it easier to wipe off. It gives a fresh smell too. 
  • Wipe down the exterior (not forgetting the handle) with baking soda, soap, or antibacterial to sanitize.

FAQs

Ever wished you could just put your feet up and

  1. have high quality, brand name home appliances
  2. at the best possible prices
  3. delivered to your doorstep
  4. with good, old fashioned Aussie service and values

at just a few mouse clicks? With none of the BS – i.e. inflated prices, lousy communication, creepy salespeople etc. – in between?

That’s who The CBF Store are! A one stop, online home appliance store for good folks like yourself who know exactly what you want and how you want it. Our prices speak for themselves as we do our very best to ensure affordability and accessibility to every Australian household.

Heck if you find the very same thing priced better (or any part of our service lacking), we’d actually be upset and would love to know how we could do better!

The CBF Store is a Melbourne based company with access to some of Australia’s largest home appliance distributors/importers and extensive freight networks across all states.

We can be contacted via phone, email, the contact form further below or even via our live chat function if you fancy a yarn about an appliance or just the questionable Melbourne weather.

The short answer – no. In order for us to provide you with what we believe is the best pricing on brand name home appliances in Australia, we knew we had to do away with the bright lights, outsized commercial rents and the obligatory small army of employees. Because all that ever translates into is an overpriced appliance. And we are all about helping every possible Australian household afford something for their home.

You mean you’re still not convinced? You don’t like the sound of (an ever-growing range) of high quality brand name home appliances retailed by an Australian company (with actual Aussies on the other end of phone calls and emails), at very-hard- to-beat prices, home delivered with service the way it should be? And with professionalism and transparency at every step of the way? Tough crowd!

All our products are brand new and come with full manufacturers’ warranties (specific to each manufacturer).

Your order will be processed within a couple of days and freight (depending on your location) can take anywhere from 5 to 14 BUSINESS days, on average. Unlike some other well-known appliance vendors, CBF will (within reason) attempt to service customers far and wide and wherever the delivery trucks can safely go. If you happen to reside in a postcode with a lot more country to it, please expect your item to arrive at the latter end of our stated delivery window. The freight companies may also attempt to get I touch (on your best contact number) before making the journey to safely deliver your appliance, so please be sure to answer your phone.

Delivery on a large number of our items, is free of charge, to nearly all parts of mainland Australia (Tasmania included). For certain items, delivery is free of charge to specific zones/regions only.

Competitive shipping is otherwise offered, which can either be confirmed upon checkout or contacting us for a custom quote. Please also check each item’s “Features” section for any additional shipping details.

Also there may be instances where certain remote addresses could incur some sort of an additional delivery charge. If you are ever in doubt about your location, kindly contact us at any time before making your purchase.

Yes and each has been tested and certified to this fact.

Each appliance comes with its own specific (advertised) manufacturer’s warranty. Warranty cards and 1800 numbers are enclosed with your new items. On top of that, we are always here and happy to help should you require further assistance or have any additional queries.

Bank Transfer, PayPal, MasterCard, Visa and Amex. And absolutely no cheeky surcharges!

In the rare event that this does occur, fear not as this is where the manufacturer’s warranty will kick in and assist in having a new unit delivered to you (while having the damaged/faulty unit picked up). All at no extra cost to you.

All our products are brand new and come with full manufacturers’ warranties (specific to each manufacturer).

In the rare event the product is not suitable you are welcome to reach out to us to arrange an exchange, store credit or refund.  We will provide you a return address so the item can be returned at your cost to be inspected and condition verified.  We only accept returns on unused products in original boxing in saleable condition.  Refunds will be processed with a restocking fee of 20% to cover handling costs.

“Yes indeed, the rumours are true. Most of our items are eligible for good ol’ fashioned lay-by and you will know instantly from that funky, uber-cool purple button that sits next to our (still) very cool BUY NOW button. Our lay-by arrangements allow for weekly or fortnightly payments, up to 3 months. By entering into such a payment arrangement you agree to adhere to our lay-by terms and conditions, which is really quite simple….

If you decided to cancel your lay-by with us after any number of payments have been made, we reserve the right to refund all monies paid up to cancellation day LESS an administrative charge – $30 or 10% of the total item/order amount (whichever is the least of these two).
