Cleaning the filter in your dishwasher’s base regularly is “crucial”, said Clare.
She explained that the filter collects food particles and residue, which not only causes it smell, but will also impact the dishwasher’s performance.
Clare also advised removing the dishwasher’s spray arms “every once in a while” and cleaning these separately, “allowing you to remove fruit pips and small food particles that may have got caught in the jets during the cycle”.
She added: “To give the dishwasher a thorough clean, you can purchase a dishwasher cleaner which removes both grease and odours, however a few wedges of lemon added to the cutlery basket or tray will help to freshen up it up.”
The Home Economist also gave her advice on how to clean the top of an oven.
She said: “A simple microfibre cloth works a treat to remove grease and restore shine. To protect the hob further, invest in a hob cleaner that leaves a silicon protective layer to eradicate marks from building up.”
Lastly, Clare explained how to keep a toaster crumb-free, which is essential for the toaster to be able to work properly.
“Simply pop out the crumb tray, located at the bottom of the toaster, and empty it into the bin with no need to awkwardly turn the toaster upside down over the bin,” Clare said.
