To clean the refrigerator to perfection, prepare a solution by mixing water and baking soda. Douse a sponge in this mixture and scrub all the interior surfaces of the refrigerator with it, including the removable components, and clean the unit on the exterior either with a traditional cleaner or with a stainless steel cleaner if the refrigerator is made from stainless steel.
If the dishwasher is made from stainless steel, clean the dishwasher by wiping it with a stainless steel cleaner, and if the exterior is made from an enamel coating, you should scrub it with a regular household cleaner.
When it comes to the interior of the dishwasher, run an empty cycle on the highest setting, with the sanitize option engaged, and if you notice that there are still unpleasant smells lingering in it, prepare a water-vinegar solution and run a wash cycle with it to get rid of all the unwanted odors.
When you start cleaning the microwave, fill a microwave-safe bowl with water and lemon juice, start the microwave to run for 5 minutes, remove the bowl and proceed to rinsing and scrubbing the interior of the unit with a damp towel that was doused with hot water.
