Our everyday buddy that helps us to keep on track/time during the morning routine is a toaster, it helps us in getting the toast ready within minutes. But when it comes to cleaning the toaster we always forget doing that, which in a longer term damages the way it works. Toaster also require a cleaning and a deep cleaning once in a while, House Cleaning Redmond has some tips that can help you clean up the toaster with ease and quickly.
Unplug your toaster
The first thing you need to do when it comes to cleaning a toaster is that you unplug the toaster, you should never begin the cleaning of an electric appliance when its plugged in, it may harm you. You should also make sure that the toaster has completely cooled off before you begin the cleaning. As cleaning of a toaster is a messy business so you should place a newspaper when beginning with the cleaning process.
Pull out crumb tray
The crumb tray collects all the crumbs. Most of the toasters these days have a pop out crumb tray but if you have an old styled toaster then you can turn the toaster upside down and shake the toaster well over the sink so that all the loosened crumbs inside the tray can be shaken off and out.
Wash the crumb tray
Once you have shaken off all the crumbs off the tray out, you will still find some crumbs stuck to the tray, to remove these you can wash the tray with warm soapy water until clean. During house cleaning then place the tray for drying or else you can use a dry microfiber cloth to wipe of the tray until completely dry.
Remove remaining crumbs
To clean the crumbs from the inside of the toaster you will brush the inside of the toaster with a pastry brush, this will remove all the crumbs from the hard to reach places inside and will clean your toaster.
Wipe the outside
Once the inside of the toaster has been cleaned then the outside to requires some cleaning, at first use a dry soft cloth to wipe off the exterior of the toaster and then use a dampened cloth with mild soap to wipe the gunk off don’t forget to wipe off the knobs.
Polish the exterior
You may find that after the cleaning of the toaster it must have lost its shine, to revive that shine back you will need to polish it up. When house cleaning sprinkle some vinegar over the cloth to wipe the toaster to restore the shine back.
Replace the crumb tray
During house cleaning, once everything has been cleaned and dried, you may pop back the dried crumb tray back into place to finish up your cleaning.
