Tips to make your refrigerator last longer
Do you know that by cleaning your fridge’s condenser tubes, you can make it last for up to 15 or 20 years?
Yes! Simply cleaning these will make your refrigerator last longer.

Tips to make your washing machine last longer
If you hear a rattling noise coming from your washing machine, then this means it is not evenly leveled. Fix this by putting it on a balanced and level ground. This will help lessen the stress of the motor and make it last longer.
Another thing you need to consider is the amount of laundry you put into your washing machine. It makes sense if you think that adding large amounts of clothes to your laundry is more energy saving. Sadly, this only stresses the motor more. The result is a shorter life for your washing machine.
How about the amount of detergent and fabric softener to use? Do I need to be mindful of these?
Yes! Too much detergent will cause a build-up on its seals and the inside of your washing machine. So, it’s best to put just the right amount of detergent and fabric when washing.
But wait, we are not yet done. To further ensure a longer life for your washing machine, you should also wipe down the inside of the machine and keep it slightly open. This is to dry it out.
As for holiday trips that last long, we highly recommend you unplug your washing machine and turn off its water supply to help prevent any accidental flooding from happening due to water pressure surge.
Tips to make your dishwasher last longer
On average, a dishwasher can last between seven to twelve years. But for you to ensure it will indeed last longer, you should perform a regular check and clean of its filters.This helps clogging when draining. You should also use more hot water as it decreases the possibility of detergent build-up inside of it. If possible, use powder tablets rather than gel-based detergent, because gel detergents may contain chlorine bleach that is harmful to your dishwasher.
As an add on, never load dishes without rinsing off any food residue. This avoids any clogs on the sprayers or filters. Of course, when placing dishes; do it gently. Avoid being forceful as this may bend and break the shoving racks.
Ultimately, run your dishwasher at least once a day. This helps prevent clogs while washing away any food remnants.
