A Complete Guide: How & When to Clean Household Appliances

Keeping your household appliances clean is not only essential for maintaining their performance but also for ensuring a healthy and hygienic living environment. From your refrigerator to your dishwasher, regular cleaning can extend the lifespan of your appliances and prevent potential issues down the line.

Refrigerator

Start by removing all food items and shelves from the refrigerator. Wipe down the interior surfaces with a solution of mild detergent and water. Don't forget to clean the shelves, drawers, and rubber seals. For stubborn stains and odors, use a baking soda paste or a mixture of vinegar and water. Vacuum the coils at the back of the fridge to remove dust and debris, and clean the exterior with a damp cloth. Aim to clean your refrigerator every three to six months or as needed.

Dishwasher

To clean your dishwasher, remove any food debris from the filter and spray arms. Run a cycle with a dishwasher cleaner or a mixture of vinegar and baking soda to remove built-up grease and limescale. Wipe down the door gasket and exterior with a damp cloth, and check the drain for any blockages. Clean your dishwasher once a month to ensure optimal performance.

Oven and Stove

For electric ovens, remove the racks and soak them in warm, soapy water. Use a non-abrasive cleaner to scrub the interior surfaces, including the walls and door. For gas stoves, remove the grates and burner caps and soak them in soapy water. Wipe down the stovetop with a degreaser and clean any spills or stains. Clean your oven and stove every three to six months or as needed.

Microwave

To clean your microwave, place a bowl of water with lemon slices or vinegar inside and heat it on high for several minutes. The steam will help loosen food splatters and stains. Wipe down the interior with a damp cloth and remove the turntable for cleaning. Use a mild detergent to clean the exterior surfaces and door. Clean your microwave once a week or as needed.

Washing Machine

To clean your washing machine, run a cycle with hot water and vinegar to remove built-up detergent residue and mold. Wipe down the door gasket and detergent dispenser with a damp cloth, and clean the filter if applicable. Leave the door open between washes to allow air to circulate and prevent mold growth. Clean your washing machine every three to six months.

Dryer

Clean the lint trap before or after each use to prevent fire hazards and improve dryer efficiency. Use a vacuum attachment to remove lint from the vent hose and exhaust duct. Wipe down the exterior surfaces with a damp cloth and clean the drum with a mild detergent. Clean your dryer every three to six months or as needed.

 

Now that you know how and when to clean your household appliances, it's time to put this knowledge into practice. By maintaining a regular cleaning schedule, you can ensure that your appliances stay in top condition and continue to serve you well for years to come.

Holiday Gift Ideas for the Impossible-to-Shop-For

'Tis the season for giving, and finding the perfect gift for that one person who's seemingly impossible to shop for can be a holiday headache. But fear not - RPM has got you covered with a selection of unique and thoughtful gift ideas that are sure to bring a smile to even the most discerning individuals. Let's unwrap the mystery of holiday gifting for those hard-to-please loved ones.

Personalized Gourmet Gift Baskets

Nothing says "I care" like a thoughtfully curated gift basket filled with gourmet treats. Customize a selection of their favorite snacks, wines, or specialty foods to create a personalized gift that's sure to impress. Consider adding a selection of local delicacies to make it extra special.

Experiential Gifts

Rather than gifting physical items, consider an experience that your loved one will cherish. Tickets to a live show, a hot air balloon ride, or even a cooking class can create lasting memories. RPM can help you find experiences near your loved one's location.

Subscription Boxes

Subscription boxes have gained popularity for good reason. They offer a continuous surprise each month. Choose a subscription that aligns with your recipient's interests, whether it's gourmet coffee, books, or wellness products. It's the gift that keeps on giving.

Home Improvement and Decor

For those who love their living spaces, unique home decor items or tools for home improvement can be a hit. Think of personalized art, stylish furniture, or high-quality kitchen gadgets. RPM properties provide the perfect canvas for these thoughtful additions.

Wellness and Spa Packages

Give the gift of relaxation and self-care with a spa day or wellness package. Many of RPM's locations have world-class spa facilities nearby. Consider bundling a spa gift certificate with a stay at an RPM property for the ultimate pampering experience.

Charitable Donations

If your hard-to-shop-for person is passionate about a particular cause, consider making a charitable donation in their name. This not only shows you care about their values but also makes a positive impact on a cause they hold dear.

 

Finding the ideal gift for those "impossible-to-shop-for" folks doesn't have to be a daunting task. Whether it's a personalized gourmet gift, an experiential adventure, a subscription box, home decor, a spa package, or a charitable donation, there's a thoughtful gift waiting for every personality.

Choose a specific decade (e.g., '70s, '80s, '90s) and raid your closet or a thrift store for era-appropriate clothing. Your RPM Luxury Apartment can be transformed into a time machine for a true blast from the past.

Punny Costume

Get creative with wordplay by creating a  pun-inspired costume. For example, tape cereal boxes to your clothes and go as a "cereal killer." With this idea, your costume can be as creative - or basic - as you’d like.

Modern Pop Culture Icon

Pick a beloved pop culture icon and replicate their look with what you have on hand. Whether it's Marilyn Monroe's red lips or Steve Jobs' black turtleneck, your RPM luxury apartment can become the backdrop for your transformation.

Classic Vampire

Halloween just wouldn’t feel complete if someone wasn’t vamped out. This year, it can be you! Dress in dark, elegant clothing, add some fake fangs, and a touch of pale makeup. Bonus points for fake blood drips from your “prey”.

Fall Party Theme Ideas for Hosting at Your RPM Living Apartment

As the crisp autumn breeze begins to rustle the leaves and the scent of pumpkin spice fills the air, it's the perfect time to host a memorable fall party in your RPM Living apartment. So get comfortable, and let’s dive into some fall party theme ideas that will make your RPM Living apartment the go-to destination for fun and festivities this autumn.

 

Rustic Harvest Feast

Transform your apartment into a cozy farmhouse with rustic decor, hay bales, and mason jar centerpieces. Host a potluck-style feast where guests bring their favorite fall dishes, from butternut squash soup to apple pie. Enhance the ambiance with string lights and autumnal tunes for an unforgettable harvest experience.

Oktoberfest Celebration

Embrace the spirit of Oktoberfest by turning your apartment into a Bavarian beer garden. Decorate with blue and white banners, set up a beer tasting station with local craft brews, and serve classic German dishes like bratwurst and pretzels. Don't forget the lederhosen and dirndls for added authenticity.

Halloween Costume Party

October wouldn't be complete without a Halloween bash. Encourage your guests to come in their spookiest, silliest, or most creative costumes. Decorate your apartment with eerie lighting, cobwebs, and jack-o'-lanterns. Host a costume contest and offer prizes for the best-dressed ghouls and ghosts.

Fall Movie Marathon

For a more relaxed gathering, set up a cozy movie night in your apartment. Create a comfy viewing area with blankets and pillows, and choose a lineup of classic fall-themed movies, such as "Hocus Pocus," "Harry Potter," or "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving." Don't forget the popcorn and hot cider!

Pumpkin Carving Extravaganza

Gather your friends for a pumpkin carving party. Provide pumpkins, carving tools, and stencils for guests to create their masterpieces. You can even turn it into a friendly competition with prizes for the most creative designs. Display the finished pumpkins in your apartment as festive decor.

Fall Flavors Potluck

Celebrate the delicious flavors of fall by hosting a potluck featuring autumn-inspired dishes. From caramel apple dip to sweet potato casserole, there are endless options to savor. Encourage guests to share their recipes and cooking tips.

Harvest Wine Tasting

Turn your apartment into a sophisticated wine-tasting venue. Choose a selection of wines that pair well with fall foods and provide tasting notes. Add elegance with candlelight and rustic wine barrels for a vineyard feel.
