Cleaning the fridge is no easy task. Tired of the foul smell coming from your refrigerator? Let’s look at tips to clean your refrigerator.
According to an article at bbcleaningservice.com, “Cleaning Fridge without Chemicals”
“Remove everything. Completely empty out your refrigerator. Put items in a cooler with ice to make sure your food stays safely cold. As you take stuff out, wipe containers down with a rag and soapy water. If a container has cracked or is sticky, make sure you don’t put the item back like that.
Throw out expired items. As you take stuff out, check the expiration and “best by” dates and eyeball your produce. If you see anything with mold on it (it’s OK, it happens to the best of us), you’re going to want to take extra care during the next steps.
Unplug your fridge. If it’s an option and if you need to take your time with a deep cleaning, unplug the fridge to save energy. This isn’t necessary if you can’t get to your plug (but you should know that there may be some scary stuff behind your fridge). If you can’t reach, simply turn your fridge up to its highest temperature setting.
Take out what you can. In many fridges, trays and compartments can be completely removed. Take them out, and if you can, throw them in the dishwasher. If not, let them soak in hot water and ordinary, natural dish-washing liquid in your sink. You can also let them sit in baking soda and water.
Destroy mold and mildew. If you see mold on any of these appliances, from the shelves you took out to the inside of the fridge, you’ll want to use distilled white vinegar to kill it. White vinegar is an alternative to the super-powered super-chemical: bleach. It kills about 80% of molds out there, but if you’re nervous, go for the bleach. Another, more natural alternative is old-fashioned Borax, which can be mixed with water and then left on without being wiped away to prevent future growth. Tea tree oil smells great and can do the trick, too. “To read the entire article click here.
