Spring Cleaning: What You May Be Missing

(NewsUSA) - Spring is here, and that means so is spring cleaning. This year, take time to show some love to the workhorses that make your house run smoothly; namely, the washing machine, dishwasher, disposal, and stove.

Deep-cleaning these appliances help eliminate hard-water buildup and residue - the silent invaders that degrade the performance of your appliances and create unpleasant odors - to keep them running smoothly, efficiently, and cleanly.

The best way to clean major appliances is to use products designed specifically for that purpose. A small investment in a specialty appliance cleaner can pay off in the long run by extending the life of your appliance.

The Glisten product line from Summit Brands is one example. The company has a long history of producing effective, environmentally- friendly products designed specifically for a range of appliances.

Detox the dishwasher: The Glisten Dishwasher Cleaner both disinfects and reduces hard-water buildup with easy, monthly use. To help keep odors and buildup at bay as needed between deep cleanings, place a Glisten Dishwasher Cleaner & Freshener tablet at the bottom of the dishwasher before running, and run the machine as usual. Glisten Dishwasher Cleaner is the only EPA-registered dishwasher cleaner and disinfectant.

Enhance the washing machine: The Glisten Washer Machine Cleaner is designed for monthly use to clean door seals, detergent drawers, and other tricky spots. The product has no bleach or other chemicals that could harm fabrics and meets the EPA Safer Choice designation.

Boost your disposal: Get rid of the grunge this spring with weekly use of Glisten Disposer Care Foaming Cleaner, which can help remove not only gunk and buildup in the disposal but in the drainpipe as well.

Support the stove: This spring, start a healthy habit of "as-needed cleaning" of cooktops, ovens, microwaves, and other small appliances with Glisten Cooktop & Kitchen Cleaning Pads, engineered for the job with a non-abrasive, deep cleaning side and a soft cloth polishing side.

Glisten products are created with consideration of sustainability and environmental impact and are formulated with natural ingredients.
