How often should you clean your fridge? Chances are, it's been a while if you're reading this. A dirty fridge can be an indicator of the health of your family and your home. The problem is that many people don't know how to go about cleaning their refrigerator, so they put it off for as long as possible. In this post, we will discuss all the steps necessary to properly clean out your refrigerator and make it look like new again!
If there are leftovers in your refrigerator, they need to be put into a sealed container or removed entirely. If you have any spoiled produce that has gone bad, it needs to go as well. The same is true for anything with mold on it - if any of these items remain inside the fridge after we're done cleaning, then that will just mean more work later!
After throwing away everything that's rotten or expired, vacuum out any crumbs or spills before continuing onto Step#2.
Before starting this step, make sure your foaming agent bottle is shaken vigorously so that it creates foam. Once it's ready, spray the foam on all of the surfaces in your fridge. The foaming agent will help loosen up any stains and dirt that are stuck to the surface so you can scrub them off easily with a sponge or rag.
Once every inch is covered in foam, start scrubbing! If there are items like fruits inside Tupperware containers, make sure to get rid of those before spraying them down - you definitely don't want anything leaking through while we're cleaning!
When you've finished this step, clean out any crumbs from Section Four - both behind and near the back corners where they may have collected during our last steps.
Before starting this section, empty any remaining liquid in your fridge and make sure that it's sitting on a flat surface so nothing spills. The exterior of the fridge needs to be cleaned with soap and water, so we'll use this opportunity to scrub off any stuck-on or dried stains from previous steps.
When cleaning off the top of your refrigerator, check for mold growth too. Mold can be found anywhere in your fridge, but it will likely congregate on the top of the refrigerator. If you find any mold or dirt that's growing near a food area, start scrubbing with soap and water to remove them.
If there are still items left over from when we first started cleaning out our kitchen, they need to go! This includes everything - spices, condiments, canned goods...everything related to food needs to go back into their original containers for storage elsewhere. Once all these items have been disposed of properly (and preferably recycled), then you're ready for Next Step!
Once everything has been removed from the fridge rinse it out thoroughly with clean water, scrub off all of your surfaces with a sponge and soap. Once you've done this, the interior should be thoroughly washed down with clean water to remove any leftover residue or grime that's still there.
If you want to keep your family healthy and your home free of germs - it is imperative that cleaning out your refrigerator becomes one of the most important tasks on your list! This guide has taught you how to go about doing so in just under seven steps! You'll never have another dirty appliance again once you follow these guidelines for care-taking. Remember: when something needs attention up top...it usually means trouble below too! So always make sure
