Obviously, you must remove food from the refrigerator in order to clean it. Consider setting up a small foldable table or employing a few chairs if you don’t have a lot of counter space. Consider putting your food in a cooler if you’re going to undertake a thorough clean. Whatever you choose, make sure you have enough space to store a shelf’s worth of items. Also, check to see if your kitchen sink is empty. While you’re about it, put the recycling bin close by because you’ll probably be throwing out expired things.
One of the best cleaning agents for this job is vinegar. When combined with hot water in a spray bottle, the acid breaks down oil and grime, resulting in a food-safe cleaner that’s ideal for any crud that’s gathered on refrigerator shelves. You’ll need a scrubby sponge or cloth, as well as at least a few microfiber towels, in addition to a non-toxic cleaning spray.
While some people have enough counter space to completely empty their refrigerators before cleaning, unless you have a backup fridge or a large cooler to store your perishables, working one shelf at a time is frequently the ideal way. Assess the extent of damage after removing everything from a shelf, starting at the top. If there have been any spills, carefully remove the glass from the frame (or brackets, depending on your fridge) and use the vinegar solution to clean both sides as well as the edges. Then, using a microfiber towel, dry it. Before replacing the entire shelf, you can also wash the frame that holds the glass.
Drawers in refrigerators tend to collect debris, especially if they’re used for produce. Remove the drawers and wash them in the kitchen sink with soap and water for a thorough cleaning. If they won’t fit in your sink, clean them with a spray and wipe, then dry them before reinstalling them. While the drawers are being removed, use the vinegar cleaner to clean the fridge’s walls and “floor.” Apply the same technique to the inside of the doors’ shelves.
What’s the purpose of cleaning out the fridge if you’re just going to re-stock it with sticky jam jars and crusty condiment bottles? Make sure everything is clean before putting it away. Even if the shelf doesn’t appear dirty, it’s a good idea to wipe the bottom with a moist microfiber cloth, especially if it’s sticky. If any bottles or jars have a little goo on the exterior, rinse them with warm water, then clean and dry them. Remove the lid and wash it more thoroughly in the sink if gunk has accumulated around the seal or the edges of the cap. Also, if something is past its expiration date, now is the time to get rid of it!
Once everything is back in your gleaming fridge, wash down the exterior of the doors with a clean microfiber cloth and vinegar spray, paying special attention to the edges and seals, and don’t forget the handles.
You can now enjoy the satisfaction of a perfectly clean refrigerator. At least for a time. Put a refrigerator freshener in the rear to keep it smelling better for longer.
