BEKO’s top tips for a cleaner Spring

Spring cleaning your home doesn’t need to be a last minute frenzy this year. BEKO, one of the UK’s leading home appliance brands, has come up with some top tips that not only take the hassle out of cleaning your home but also ensure that you get the best results.

How to clean your fridge & freezer…

1. Most modern fridges have an automatic defrost function, but they still need to be cleaned occasionally. Wipe down all inside surfaces e.g. drawers and shelves with a damp cloth, and dry well with a soft cloth
2. Clean the outside with a solution of warm water and washing-up liquid. Wipe metal parts with a damp cloth
3. To remove smells, wipe down walls, shelves and the door seal with a solution of bicarbonate of soda and warm water or use a light disinfectant and ensure that any ‘expired’ food is thrown away. A good way to prevent smells returning is to leave bicarbonate of soda in an open container inside the fridge
4. Don’t forget behind your refrigerator too! Vacuum the coils of your UNPLUGGED refrigerator and make sure that you sweep and mop underneath. You’d be surprised by the amount of dust and dirt that accumulates underneath. Make sure the plastic tray at the back of the appliance which collects the defrost water is also cleaned at regular intervals.
5. BEKO Top Tip: Next time you’re replacing your fridge/freezer, take a closer look at the specification sheet. It might sound boring, but it could actually save you valuable cleaning time later on. Beko’s models have a range of features making it easy even in the busiest family home to keep appliances clean and hygienic all year round. The majority of Beko’s fridge freezers feature glass shelves with front and back plastic edging ensuring that spillages are contained so that if accidents do happen, they can easily be cleaned up.

How to clean your oven…

1. Always wear rubber gloves & open a window/door to ventilate the room
2. Some cookers have stay-clean oven linings – it’s important that you only clean these with a soft damp cloth. If you are unsure whether your oven has stay-clean or ordinary oven linings take the time to check your product guide. To clean enamel linings and oven floors use an oven cleaning product – but make sure that it does not come into contact with any stay-clean lining
3. Place a bowl of tap water in the oven and heat on a high temperature for approximately 20 minutes; the steam generated will help loosen dirt and grease. Wipe away any condensation with a paper towel or cloth
4. Remove cooked on deposits from oven doors with a metal spatula or ceramic hob scraper, then use a spray-on oven cleaner. If the glass door is removable, it can be soaked in a solution of biological washing powder.
5. BEKO Top Tip: Cleaning your oven doesn’t have to be one of the dirtiest jobs in the kitchen. BEKO’s DVC665 oven has an easy clean enamel oven and ceramic hob surface. It also has a removable inner glass door, making it even easier to clean.

How to clean your hob…

1. Turn off your hob and make sure the surface is cool before cleaning. Always wear rubber gloves
2. Some pan supports and spillage wells on gas hobs are dishwasher-safe. If you don’t have a dishwasher or are unsure if they’re dishwasher-safe, simply use a suitable cream cleaner and a damp cloth
3. To remove burnt-on grease splashes behind your hob, use a solution of sugar soap, available from most DIY stores and supermarkets
4. BEKO Top Tip: Keep an eye out for Hobs that have a cover. The BEKO DVG695 comes with a glass lid meaning there’s less opportunity for spillage and splashes on the back wall. Other BEKO models offer a ceramic hob which makes it easier to wipe away food spills

How to clean your dishwasher…
1. Start by running your dishwasher on empty. Add one of the special dishwasher cleaners available in many stores before running. These cleaners will often also leave a fresh smell in the dishwasher.
2. Clean out the filter in the bottom of the dishwasher, then run water through the inlet of each spray arm to check that the holes are not blocked by any food debris
3. Wash down the exterior of the dishwasher with a solution of washing-up liquid and warm water and a soft cloth
4. If your machine is not going be used for some time, leave the door ajar to allow air to circulate
5. BEKO Top Tip: It’s easy to assume that by putting your dishwasher on a longer time programme any stubborn dirt on dishes will be a removed. The Beko DWD5410 combines a 58 minute wash programme (the quickest in the world) with ‘A’ class cleaning performance, and a rapid 30 minute programme for lightly soiled items.

Beko’s Tip of the Year
