Last month’s task was to clean your refrigerator and freezer. In my update I showed you how I cleaned and organized my chest freezer. Since then, someone opened a can of frozen juice then put it back in the refrigerator freezer where it leaked all over. So that freezer got cleaned well.
The refrigerator was cleaned pretty thoroughly too after I was away for four days, and it was pretty well cleaned out (food wise) by the rest of the family. When cleaning, I found several of those items that get pushed to the back and stay there for way too long.
This month’s task is to clean your small appliances. I wipe mine off pretty often, but sometimes they need a more thorough cleaning. When I boxed up my old KitchenAid mixer to take to my mom’s I realized just how dirty it was.
Sometimes we need to take a closer look or look at things from a different angle. Sometimes it’s just a matter of using a toothpick or toothbrush to clean areas that don’t get cleaned by a sponge or dish cloth.
Here are some small appliances you might consider cleaning:
- stand mixer
- hand mixer
- food processor
- hand blender
- stand blender
- Magic Bullet type blender
- coffee pot
There are probably a few more I’m not thinking of, but you know what small appliances you have. Remember to clean all parts of the appliance, inside and out, as well as you can.
