How to Clean Your Refrigerator in 6 Easy Steps

|

A clean refrigerator is important in order to keep your food safe to eat! A thorough cleaning of your refrigerator should be done periodically, especially with the holidays around the corner. Below are steps to help you clean out your fridge!

  1. Unplug – If your fridge needs some serious scrubbing down, unplug the fridge so you don’t waste energy while you clean.
  2. Empty the Fridge – Take everything out of the refrigerator and place it aside. Throw out old and expired food. Group and categorize items together to make it easier when you put everything back.
  3. Wash Shelves and Drawers – Wash and scrub shelves with warm soapy water by hand.
  4. Sanitize Inside Of Fridge – Spray and wipe down every part of the fridge with a multipurpose cleaner. You can even use an old toothbrush to remove the gunk in any cracks or crevices.
  5. Eliminate Odors –  Fresh coffee grounds on a tray inside the fridge will help eliminate bad odor. You can even keep a box of open baking soda in your fridge to prevent odor as well.
  6. Wipe Down Exterior – Wipe down outside of the fridge with a damp cloth. If you have a stainless steel fridge you may also use a special stainless steel cleaner.
