I Need to Clean What? Here’s Why You Need to Clean Your Appliances.

With plenty of household chores on your list, it can be easy to forget about cleaning your appliances. After all, they do the cleaning. Studies show that around half of people think their washer, dishwasher, or garbage disposal don’t need cleaning, or they wait until there is visible residue or a stinky odor before thinking about it.

Here are some reasons for cleaning appliances and some tips for how to keep them smelling fresh.

Don't forget to clean the thing that cleans!



Now you know. Appliances that help you with your cleaning also need cleaning. Whether it’s your washing machine or dishwasher, soap residue from cleaning your clothes and dishes can build up inside the appliance. Over time, this residue can cause odors. Bits of food debris in your disposal can do the same thing. Not to worry though. Knowing is half the battle.

As much as you might wish it, even appliances that clean things don’t clean themselves. But while your washing machine, dishwasher and garbage disposal do need cleaning, it doesn’t have to be difficult. Reach for the affresh® cleaner for your specific appliance, drop in a tablet and follow the directions on the box. It’s that simple. We recommend using affresh® appliance cleaners monthly or after every 30 cycles to keep away residue and odor.
