Tip of the week – Check your fridge door seals
As the hot weather is just around the corner we certainly give the fridge a workout – but there’s no need to make your fridge work harder than it has too. Your fridge seal keeps the cool air in and if the seal is loose the cool air can leak out, wasting energy and placing your fridge under pressure to work harder.
Clean your door seals regularly (Baking soda and water is a perfect mix to remove any built-up grime) and remove any food residue.
Check your door seal for leaks and if in doubt call in the expert (Appliance Repair Guy of course!).

Tip of the week – Looking after your cooktops
Did you know a dirty cooktop can shorten its life and make cooking inefficient? Cleaning is crucial in ensuring your cooktop, be it electric or gas is heating properly and not overworking.
For electric cooktops use a glass cleaner regularly (a couple of times a week) and warm water and dishwashing liquid around any burners.
For gas cooktops use warm water and dishwashing liquid to clean the grills and ensure there is no debris in the burners…ensuring you don’t touch the igniter.
Ensuring your cooktop is clean and working efficiently could add years of life and save you $.
In today’s post we discuss cleaning your gas cooktop. As the owner of a gas cooktop I know how easily they get dirty, and although it gets a good clean after cooking it is important to give it that extra good clean once in a while to ensure the area is sanitized and clean for cooking and keeps the cooktop itself it top notch condition…so it not only looks good but performs well.
Here are some tips to cleaning your gas cooktop:
– Begin by removing the grates, knobs and the burner covers from the cooktop and place these in a sink or bucket of hot soapy water (your usual dishwashing liquid is fine to use).
– Whilst the above is soaking, wet a soft cloth with warm water and either some dishwashing liquid or other non-abrasive cleaner (some people like to use Gumption however this is a personal preference) thoroughly wipe the cooktop using a circular motion – be careful however not to get any water down into the mechanisms of the stove or gas outlets. Dry with a clean dry cloth.
– By this time you’re your grates, knobs and burner covers would have soaked for a few minutes – take your clothes and wipe off any excess grime, which should come off easily after being soaked. If the grates, which seem to cop most of the overspill and burnt on reside, are still dirty these can be further cleaned by placing some baking soda directly onto the grates and scrubbing with your damp cloth or sponge.
– Let all the components dry thoroughly on a clean dry tea towel and once dry you can place all the components back onto the stove top and enjoy your new sparkling clean cooktop…at least until you cook dinner that is!!
