Easiest-to-Clean Appliances and Fixtures

White Kitchen and Laundry Appliances

Common in many homes, less expensive white appliances can actually make a room look bigger by reflecting light. But white is so hard to clean – or is it? For day-to-day cleaning, you can use any spray kitchen cleanser and a damp cloth to wipe them down. To deep clean, a little vinegar mixed with baking soda and hot water creates a DIY cleanser. For tough stains, use an erasing sponge – just test it first on a small spot.
