[TIPS] Ingredients & Methods To Clean Your Washing Machine

Failure to clean and maintain your washer can lead to bad odors, germs, bacteria, and mold. I experienced this first hand when I began to see black bits all over my laundry. So, today we gonna teach you how to clean your washer with some simple ingredients.

1. Vinegar and Baking Soda

To use, mix ½ cup of baking soda and 1 quart (1 liter) of vinegar, and set water temperature to 90ºC (194ºF) on a long cycle. Vinegar and baking soda are safe to use because they are natural. They are also very effective at removing limescale as well as deodorizing. Even though vinegar is an acetic acid, it is only a mild form of acid and will not kill all of the mould. If you have an extremely dirty washing machine, use the stronger ingredients recommended below.

2. Removing Sticky Residue With Oxygen Bleach and Enzyme Detergent

Use dose as directed on the label for large loads. Set water temperature to 90ºC (194ºF) and choose the largest load option. Choose powdered enzyme detergents over liquid ones. Look for a detergent that contains a range of grease-eating enzymes, such as Amylase, Protease, Lipase, or Mannanase (you may need to check the manufacturer’s website for the list of ingredients). You can also regularly add powdered oxygen bleach to your usual detergent. Seventh Generation detergents use these types of enzymes, and they also sell oxygen bleach. Be aware that enzyme detergents are not safe to use on wool or silk.

3. Using Citric Acid to Remove Buildup

Mix 1 cup of citric acid and ½ cup of baking soda (optional). Choose a long wash cycle and set water temperature to 90ºC (194ºF). Citric acid is derived from citrus fruits and is a natural and powerful way to remove limescale, soap scum, and buildup. It is a much stronger acid than vinegar, so it works for machines with lots of buildup. Citric acid can also be used alongside baking soda to help remove odors.

4. Using Hydrogen Peroxide to Clean a Filthy Drum

Hydrogen Peroxide removes limescale, kills mould, and is anti-viral and anti-bacterial. You can simply use 1 liter (1 quart) of hydrogen peroxide with water at 90ºC (194ºF) on a long wash cycle.It is safer than chlorine bleach because it doesn’t leave behind toxic fumes and residue. It's also safe for the environment because it breaks down into oxygen and water. The downside to hydrogen peroxide is that it takes longer to work, so you’ll need to leave it soaking in your machine for at least three hours. Because this is not possible for front loaders, you may need to run it through twice.

5. Using Chlorine Bleach to Remove Odor

Chlorine bleach must only be used with warm or cold water as it loses it effectiveness at high temperatures. Use 1 quart (1 liter) of chlorine bleach and set maximum water temperature to 40 ºC (104 ºF). Many people like to use chlorine bleach, but I prefer not to because of its toxicity and the fact that it can’t be mixed with other products. Although it’s great at removing mould from smooth services like tiles and glass, it can’t penetrate porous surfaces, such as the plastic inner drum or porcelain inner drum of your washing machine. You may think that you have killed the mould because you can no longer see it, but the roots of the mould are still alive and well and will happily re-grow in a short amount of time. It also doesn't remove limescale.

[TIPS] 家用电器保养的方法和应该如何保养。

电器给家居生活带来了许多的便利和享受,常见的家用电器例如空调、电视机、洗衣机、电冰箱和热水器等。家用电器日常也需要做好保养的工作,才能延长电器的使用寿命以及减少电器的耗电量,那么家用电器怎样保养呢?

 

今天让小编就给大家介绍一下:

 1、电视机保养

家用电器在日常使用中需要注意,避免连续、长时间的工作时间使用。特别是在不看电视的时候,最好关闭显示器的电源,或者降低电视的显示屏的亮度,否则待机时间长了,容易导致电视机内部烧坏或者老化加速,减少电视的使用年限。此外,电视长时间处于一个固定的画面,则有可能导致显示屏中某些LCD像素过热,进而造成内部烧坏。此外,家中的音箱如果长期保持开着的状态,还会影响到音箱的音质,所以应注意避免长时间使用。

 

2、热水器保养

  热水器也是家居生活中常用的电器之一,需要注意日常的保养。热水器内胆应每半年清洗一次,清洗好内胆以后等到水干后才能才次通电使用。在使用正常的情况下,需要每三年一次指定的维护,或者让维护人员上门服务,以保证热水器能正常使用。还需要经常检查供气管道是否完好,有无老化、裂纹和渗漏等显现,如果发现这些情况需要及时维修,避免更大的漏洞出现。

 

3、电冰箱保养

首先,电冰箱应该远离热源,特别是在厨房中的冰箱,切记布置在离灶台近的地方。由于冰箱的温度每提高5度,其内部就会增加25%的耗电量,因此冰箱应该放置在远离热源的地方,通风背阴的地方为宜。其次,冰箱如果开门过于频繁,不仅会增加冰箱的耗电量,还会降低冰箱的使用寿命。

 

4、空调的保养

现代家庭中都会安装空调,而空调的用电量也比较大,所以在使用中注意空调如何节约用电。空调的排风扇也需要定期清洗,但清洗时需注意不要破坏到空调内部的散热片,而且空调的散热片是不能拆卸的,因其结构的特殊性,仅靠湿布擦拭、刷子清洗等手段是没有用的。如果你对空调如何保养不了解,最好定期请专业的人工来做保养工作,避免损坏空调内部空间,造成更大的损失。

通过以上的简单介绍,相信大家对于家用电器保养的方法和应该如何保养都有了一定的了解。希望大家可以学以致用。

 

[TIPS] 电器小知识:省电那件事!

是不是觉得电费越来越贵?家里的电器也越买越多?别只顾着买电器,我来教你如何用电器省电!

 

第一:冷气机

在炎热的马来西亚,冷气机成为了必需品,也是销量最高的电器之一,但冷气机也是最耗电的电器。在使用冷气机时将温度调节适合的温度约23至25度再配合电风扇可让房间瞬间清凉。另外,将冷气设置为“除湿模式”(DRY MODE)不仅能降低室内的温度还能节省电能。满灰尘的过滤网会影响冷气机的运作而导致冷气不够冷,每周清洗过滤网一次可保持冷气机的运作效率。除此之外,在睡前调节“时间模式”(TIMER),冷气机将在设定的时间关机。这些小小步骤可达到节电的功能。

 

第二:冰箱

家里的冰箱是24小时需要开着电,但是很多人不知道摆放的地方其实会影响你冰箱电能的用量。冰箱应该放在阴凉通风的地方,四周保留空隙,离墙的距离10CM以上,这样做有助于散热便可减少冰箱功能的用量。另外,水分较高的蔬果可用保鲜袋包好再放入冰箱内,这样可以避免水分蒸发或增加除霜耗能。

 

第三:洗衣机

家家户户都拥有的一款电器,耗电的它如何节电呢?当衣物堆积到一定的数量才使用洗衣机清洗,洗前先将衣物浸泡可减少洗的次数。根据衣物的数量选择适合的水位再根据材质选择清洗强度可节水和电能。

 

第四:电视机

看电视也可以帮你节约电能,其实很多人不知道电视机的音量很耗电,稍微把音量调到适合的量即可。电视机调节亮度的模式可以决定你耗的电能,在电视达到最亮的状态可消耗50至60%的电能,若将电视亮度调低一般可以节约10% 的电能。

 

第五:电饭锅

电饭锅是不可少的电器之一,通常很多人洗米后就直接放入电饭锅。其实洗米后再浸泡几分钟才放入电饭锅内可以加快米熟的速度,从而达到节电的目的。

 

小提示:

大型电器如冰箱,洗衣机,冷气机等等是我们生活中的必需品但也非常的耗电,只要你学会了这些秘诀就可以在生活中节省电费!在选择购买电器前,辨认有贴“能源评级”(THE ENERGY RATING LABEL) 的标签,这代表这电器具有省电功能,五星为最节省电能和高数值的产品。另外,“变频技术”(INVERTER) 也成为了最佳省电的功能;仅凭省电电器价格比普通电器较为昂贵,但却节省高达10至20%的电量。你还在拔插头吗?赶快把这些秘诀学起来吧!

[TIPS] What's the Difference Between All the Types of Vacuums?

Love it or hate it, vacuuming is key to keeping a clean home. It’s no surprise that a quality vacuum cleaner should have a front and center spot in your cleaning closet. Vacuum cleaners make quick work of sucking up dirt and debris and can also remove allergens, pet hair, and more from your living spaces.

Whether you have hard surface floors or plush carpeting, a vacuum cleaner does more than just push dirt around—it sucks it up so that you can dispose of it for good! Using a motor to generate suction power and a cleaning head with a brush, debris is sucked up into the nozzle and travels to a bag or dust collection bin for later disposal. Some vacuums also have an onboard filtration system to trap tiny particles and keep them from being released into the air through the exhaust of the vacuum. After a few passes with your vacuum cleaner, you’ll have cleaner floors that are free of grit and look great!

Vacuum cleaners come in all shapes and sizes, with different uses and features. Upright vacuum cleaners are one of the most common types available, and you can find them in both bagless and bagged varieties. Canister vacuums offer better mobility and are also great for stairs, but often have smaller dust bags. Handheld and stick or cordless vacuums make handy tools for quick touch-ups. And if you’re looking for the easy way out, robotic vacuums can be programmed to clean your floors automatically.

What Is the Best Type of Vacuum for Me?

Your dirt situation at home (pets, kids, etc.) will help you figure out what vacuum will work best for your lifestyle and needs.

 

Upright

shark-vacuum-product

The workhorses of the vacuum family, upright vacuums are known for their strong suction and wide floor heads that can clean up to 15 inches or more with a single pass. Available in both bagless and bagged versions, the upright section of these vacuums holds the motor and dust collection system. For this reason, these vacuums tend to weigh more than some more streamlined models and the design requires you to push and pull the vacuum across the floor as you clean.

The consensus is that upright vacuums do the best job at penetrating deep into carpet fibers to extract embedded dirt, dander, and debris. However, the upright design can make it harder to maneuver into low, tight spaces—like under couches or beds. Many vacuums come with attachments to solve this and other cleaning conundrums. Generally, these attachments can be stored onboard for easy access during cleaning.

When it comes to storing your vacuum, the upright design is closet-ready. It takes up minimal floor space while leaving room for other cleaning supplies or coats, shoes, and more. 

 

Canister

 
If you want a vacuum with a floor head that can reach to great heights or uncharted territory under your furniture, a canister vacuum may be a great choice. These vacuums feature a canister body that houses the motor and dust collection system (either a bag or dustbin) connected by a hose to a floor nozzle. 

The big advantage to a canister vacuum is the fact that the canister can sit stationary while you vacuum the room around it. When it’s time to move on, just bring the canister along—either by wheeling it (many canister vacuums are equipped with wheels) or picking it up by the handle. Canister vacuums are also very popular in homes with stairs. By setting the canister on a step and using the long hose to vacuum the stairs around the canister, it can be much easier to clean your staircase than trying to balance the task with a top-heavy upright vacuum.

Storing a canister vacuum can be tricky—since the long hose plus the canister body will need space inside your closet. It seems counterintuitive that this more compact vacuum would need more storage space than an upright vacuum, but the lack of a consolidated footprint can cause a challenge in tight spaces.

 

Cordless

 

Ditch the cord and take your vacuum wherever the trail of crumbs leads you! Cordless stick vacuums are slimmed down upright vacuum cleaners that run on battery power. These vacuums are perfect for quick clean-ups in high traffic areas, but most lack the major suction power, dustbin capacity, or battery life to handle whole house duty.

Of course, there are higher-end models with lithium-ion batteries that offer around 40 minutes of run time and turbo modes to up the suction power of this lightweight tool. Just keep in mind that more suction will drain the battery faster—so it’s often a trade-off between runtime and cleaning power.

Even still, these lightweight vacuums make a great addition to your cleaning closet and many people keep one handy to tidy up quickly. Instead of busting out the big vacuum, unwinding the cord, plugging it in and then having to put it all away when the job is done, a cordless vacuum is ready whenever and wherever with minimal time to get it out or put it away.

 

Robotic

If there just don’t seem to be enough hours in the day to chase dust bunnies and vacuum up debris, then a robotic vacuum can automate this routine chore. These futuristic-looking vacuum cleaners are a little larger in diameter than your average dinner plate and are just a few inches tall.

Robotic vacuums feature the onboard technology to automatically undock themselves, scurry around your home scooping up dust and dirt, then return to their charging station until the next scheduled run time. How advanced the technology is depends on the model of the robotic vacuum you choose.

Things to consider when shopping for a robotic vacuum include what type of room mapping the vacuum is capable of, how large the dustbin is, whether the motor is powerful enough to tackle medium-to-high pile carpeting, and if it has the ability to maneuver around obstacles.

 

Handheld

For small tasks, spot cleaning, and suction power to go, a handheld vacuum is a great solution. These small vacuum cleaners typically are battery-powered and have a dustbin that collects the cereal, dirt, and pet hair hiding in your couch cushions or car upholstery.

The suction power is best suited for small tasks and the battery life means you won’t be able to use it for large cleaning projects. But just about all handheld vacuums offer plenty of power for cleaning your couch, detailing your car, or erasing a pile of dirt tracked in by muddy shoes. 

 

Wet/Dry

  

These vacuums are useful for cleaning up messes of all types in the garage, workshop, or commercial spaces. A shop vacuum is capable of sucking up wet or dry debris and can come in handy during home improvement projects or when sprucing up your garage.

Many wet/dry vacuums are mounted on wheels for easy maneuverability, but this is not always the case. Typically the canister of these vacuums is made of tough, durable housing to withstand the rigors of shop life.
