Cleaning Your Electrical Appliances

  • Don't mix water and electricity.
    Unplug appliances before cleaning. Even if appliances are off, they can still shock, and wet skin can decrease your resistance to electricity. Never submerge an electrical appliance, even if it is unplugged—residual water can cause a shock hazard.
  • Check your cords.
    Once you've unplugged an appliance for cleaning, now's a good time to check for frayed or damaged cords. If you find a problem, put the appliance away until you can have it checked by a qualified repair person.


Keep appliances clean and unplug electrical appliances before cleaning to ensure safety.
