I have to admit, even though I'm quite the clean freak, I did a little research on this one! It all started with my quest to clean my Dyson vacuum. I felt a little like Monica from Friends when she's caught using her dust buster to clean her vacuum which of course, seemed perfectly reasonable to me!
Once the vacuum was disassembled and cleaned, in true Monica Geller form it was on to the next appliance. I have my own methods of cleaning but found that it was helpful to know what others did.
