How to Clean Your Refrigerator

refridgeratorRefrigerators can be one of those kitchen appliances that are taken for granted. They keep food cool and prevent it from spoiling. We only notice them when they fail to work or if a foul smell starts emanating from the interior every time we open the door. Food we bought weeks ago can be lurking in the back, uneaten.

So, don your rubber gloves, fill that bucket with warm water and get cleaning. It won’t take long. In fact, a couple of hours will probably do it. The fridge doesn’t even have to be turned off. You’ll thank yourself later.

  1. Take all your food out of the fridge.
  2. Throw out any aged, moldy or inedible food, bagging securely to prevent leakage or mold distribution.
  3. Take out any shelving, drawers (e.g. crispers), or other removable surface from the refrigerator.
  4. Wash the shelving, drawers, and other surfaces by hand.
  5. Wipe the inside of the refrigerator with a mild soap and water.
  6. Make sure to clean the fridge doors.
  7. Dry off shelving before putting it back in its home in the refrigerator.
  8. Reintroduce the food into the refrigerator. Make sure you wipe off any jars or bottles before you place them back in the fridge.
