Occasionally cleaning household appliances like stoves and refrigerators may seem obvious, but what about equipment that does the cleaning, like the dishwasher and washing machine? Give these often overlooked appliances a deep clean with the following tips before the holidays have them working overtime.
Unclog the dishwasher.The cleaner the dishwasher, the cleaner your dishes will turn out after going through a wash cycle. Take a moment toclean the dishwasher's filter, usually located on the inside bottom of the machine. This detachable filter becomes clogged with food and debris over time, so empty it out regularly to keep it working efficiently.
De-gunk your garbage disposal.Use a natural abrasive combo ofice and saltto loosen grime from the blades. Though it will be loud, run the disposal until the ice is gone. When finished, you can grind up a lemon or lime wedge to deodorize the drain.
Give your washing machine a wash.Hosting out-of-towners during the holiday season? Avoid musty bedding and towels by sanitizing the machine and removing mildew buildup every few months. To do this, run a hot wash cycle without a load and add one cup of bleach to the soap dispenser or directly into the machine.
Give your vacuum more power.Increased foot traffic could have this tool working harder over the holidays.Keep your vacuum maintainedwith simple fixes like unclogging hoses, cleaning the rotating brush and replacing the filter.
Want to keep your appliances working hard for you? Give them regular attention and their own cleaning now and then.

IT'S A RAINY DAY IN WEST PALM BEACH, AND I WAS OUT SHOWING PROPERTY. I
"Tue, May 17, 2016
Just wanted to take a moment to recommend an outstanding real estate agent. About a year ago my wife and I looked into buying a new house. We looked at exit realty's website and the next morning we received a call from Joseph Schneider. He is a true professional with an outstanding personality he will instantly make you feel welcome as if you're working with a longtime friend. My wife had unusual requests for the property and Joseph listened and found the property meeting all our needs. He is patient and knowledgeable I would recommend him to all. We purchased our new home in August and since then Joseph has remained in contact, just checking in from time to time. You can look but I doubt you will find a better agent !"
