More Spring Cleaning

Spring is on its way and yes I know it's early yet but If I wait till Spring to talk about it then it's too late because you'll already be busy cleaning.

When you are moving stuff around don't forget to get the refrigerator. It is very important to clean your refrigerator coils because dirty coils won't cool foods properly. Dirty coils will also make the fridge work much harder and use more electricity.

To Clean the coils, remove the louvered base grill or kick plate on the bottom of your refrigerator. Now coils are usually pretty hard to get to some vaccums come with an attachment to help with this. If you don't have one try this little trick. Take a yardstick and attach an old sock (one that lost it's mate in the dryer perhaps ) to the end with a rubber band. Use the yard stick to wipe the dirt and grime off the coils. If you don't find the coils under the front of your fridge then they are in the back. You will need to pull the fridge away from the wall (get someone to help you to avoid injury).
