The Toaster And Microwave Are Two Regularly Used Appliances, However, They Tend To Be Forgotten When Cleaning The Kitchen.

Tips to clean your toaster in minutes

Burnt toast, chunks of crumpet stuck in the grill or excess crumbs can cause dangerous carbon and become a fire hazard. Prevention is key and can be achieved in minutes:

  1. Make sure your toaster is unplugged and feels cool to touch.
  2. Cover a pencil with paper towel, and work the pencil in between the hot irons to remove any lodged debris. Replace the towel if it starts to tear.
  3. Fun tip: Use a hairdryer (set to cool air) to blow through the toaster – blasting out any remaining crumbs. Best to do this one outside or over the sink.
  4. Now to give the outside some shimmer and shine:
    • Cut half a lemon and rub a little salt across the top which will act as a light abrasive. Swirl the lemon gently over the external surface then wipe dry with a paper towel.
    • Dab some vinegar onto a microfibre cloth then polish the surface, revealing an instant shine especially on silver features.

      Tips to clean your microwave

      Using the same lemon you used for your toaster, you can refresh your microwave in minutes.

      1. Cut up the remaining lemon into wedges and squeeze the juice into a microwave-safe bowl. Throw in the wedges and pour 1/2 cup water over the top.
      2. Place the bowl in the microwave and set on high for three minutes. Once complete, leave the bowl inside for a further five minutes to steam
      3. Carefully remove the bowl, remembering it will be hot, then wipe all internal surfaces with a damp microfibre cloth. It really is that easy, and you’ll also enjoy a fresh lemon aroma throughout your kitchen.
      4. Did you know there is a crumb draw? Surprisingly many people don’t know there is a tray in all toasters, making it super easy to discard excess waste. This is usually located on the bottom of the toaster, but check your appliance manual for access instructions. Simply pull out the tray and empty the contents, then wipe clean before reinstalling.
      5. Fun tip: Use a hairdryer (set to cool air) to blow through the toaster – blasting out any remaining crumbs. Best to do this one outside or over the sink.
