An amazing 71 per cent of Brits don’t clean their home appliances on a regular basis and there are some appliances that are more neglected than others when it comes to cleaning.
Here’s the top five:
1. Washing Machine
Many people say they only clean their washing machine just once a year!
The survey says some of us only clean our oven twice per year
Despite it cleaning the plates we eat off on a daily basis, we only clean the dishwasher about 3 times a year
A little less neglected is the fridge at 8 times per year
It’s more often than the washing machine but considering how dirty your microwave can get 21 times per year doesn’t seem like enough
People who admitted to infrequently cleaning these appliances also said they had to hire in a professional to do the job and many replaced items before their time due to bad maintenance.
It may seem like a dull and grim task but keeping your appliances clean on a regular basis can actually save you time and money in the long run.
