Cleaning your lawnmower – yes, even your lawn mower needs a good cleaning once and a while because grass, weeds, and dirt can buildup underneath with each use.
To clean your mower, you have to take steps to ensure your safety; the biggest one is to unplug the spark plug. The reason for unplugging the spark plug is so the mower won’t just turn on while you’re cleaning. The next step is to get out your ice scraper from its summer hideout. The long handle and sharp edges of the ice scraper will allow you to dislodge grass, dirt, and debris from the blades of the mower and you never have to touch them.
Finish your mower-cleaning project by using the strongest spray on your hose nozzle and spray the underside of the mower. Once you have sprayed the mower allow it thoroughly dry before plugging the spark plug back in and using the mower. This simple maintenance will help sustain the life of any mower.
