How to Clean Your Kitchen Appliances Properly
Dr. Travis Stork: So we ask Julie Edelman, author of The Ultimate Accidental Housewife to uncover some of the hidden health dangers that could be lurking in your home.
Julie Edelman: I understand you have some concerns about your family’s health and dust in particular.
Dee: My son and I have some allergies and my son has asthma, so I try to keep our house as clean as I can but I’m sure there’s some areas that I’m missing.
Julie Edelman: I’m going to show you. Your appliances that maybe causing you know some of these health issues. Okay, the dishwasher, now you’ve got that fishy smell. To get rid of some of this, use a powdered citrus drink. Pour this directly into the dispenser and you run it through one full cycle. It’s the citric acid that eliminates rust and also disinfects your dishwasher. Look at all of that gunk down there.
Dee: Oh, my goodness.
Julie Edelman: That gunk. It’s pretty disgusting right? Vinegar is such a terrific cleaner. Just put in the spray bottle and just spray directly on. Alright, well, with this one nobody would suspect your toaster. It attracts cockroaches and mice and that obviously create lots of problems with your health.
Here’s a trick that’s really terrific. You use extra large salt crystals because that will actually break down and dislodge anything in there. We will pour those in into here cover the toaster all around shake it up uncover it and then viola! It should be clean.
You know your dryers lint filter harbors a lot of things. They gets through that waxy build up here because fabric dryer sheets leave residue. As a result, it becomes health hazard more of lint and the dust. What you want to do is take some boiling hot water, run it under there. Behind your dryer, there’s an exhaust toast that you really should clean out so you want vacuum them. Use a vacuum that has a Hippo filter so it traps of all those bad little things.
I hope now you feel that your health’s a little bit healthier.
Dee: Oh, yes thanks Julie.
Male: Thank you so much.
Dr. Travis Stork: Please welcome back the Accidental Housewife and cleaning expert, Julie Edelman. Thank you Julie.
Julie Edelman: Hi guys.
Dr. Drew Ordon: So no gloves for me.
Dr. Jim Sears: And I’m the accidental pediatrician.
Dr. Drew Ordon: How about—clean I guess?
Julie Edelman: Well, that’s just your having hand surgery you talked about earlier so we need to cover our hands.
Dr. Lisa Masterson: That’s right although I like hers. Hers has the bling.
Dr. Jim Sears: Yeah, you got the bling.
Dr. Travis Stork: Yeah, you’ve got to earn the bling though. We’re going to do our cleaning.
Dr. Lisa Masterson: Yes.
Dr. Travis Stork: We got to do a lot of cleaning and do it in a healthy way. We actually have the Knott family here and so–
Julie Edelman: Yes.
Dr. Travis Stork: What was the most surprising tip that Julie gave you guys?
Dee: The water dispenser and my refrigerator.
Dee: What was lurking underneath the dish pan was really scary. The fact that mold and mildew could possibly be growing in our refrigerator was something I want to definitely to keep out our home.
Dr. Travis Stork: And these are such good tips and you have a fifth tip that I love.
Julie Edelman: I do. You know what’s interesting too when she said about the little water dispenser, same thing in single serving coffee makers. We often had a lot of water that leaks or overspills the same thing even just with your little coffee makers themselves. The best way you know the stains that you get on these things what you use is effervescent tablets whether they're for your tummy or for your teeth so you use two of those. You put that in and it will get rid of the stains.
But also sometimes, there are the remnants if you have coffee maker put some vinegar in there. Fill up your coffee pot two parts vinegar and that’s a good old—there’s our vinegar there you go versus water. Two parts vinegar, one part water, you run it through your coffee maker and it will clean the remnants out, leave it there for about 15 to 20 minutes when you’re done. And then the stains will be gone as well as any remnants that are lingering.
Dr. Drew Ordon: The lingers such a great master—
Dr. Travis Stork: We don’t use the vinegar that was soaking on Jim’s feet earlier.
Julie Edelman: You can clean your feet as the same time.
Dr. Lisa Masterson: There’s vinegar there.
Dr. Travis Stork: I love this tip because I get that grime at the bottom of the coffee pot.
