No-one likes cleaning their kitchen, least of all cleaning their fridge freezer. So, if you can find ways to make the entire process easier, then this is a good thing in our books.
To help you to easily and quickly clean your fridge, we have put together some of the most simple and easy to do tips, all perfect for you to try out yourself in your own kitchen.
Clean Sticky And Messy Things Before You Put Them Back In The Fridge
How many times have split some jam onto the jar and then simply put the back into the fridge? These sticky spills are likely to drip down on the drawer or shelf and make it messy! Rather than having to clean it off the fridge, if you give anything sticky or messy a wipe down before you put it back in, then you lessen the amount that you will need to clean.
Put Dates On Things
Sorting out the food that is in your fridge us the first stage of any clean. Not everything in your fridge is going to have an obvious use by date. A good way to make the process easier is to pop dates on those things that are going to expire, that way you can make sure that you can bin them when they are past their best.
Keep The Smells To A Minimum
Fridges can get a bit whiffy after a while. Thankfully there are some 100% natural ways that you can keep them smelling fresh. Baking soda is one easy way, all you need to do is spread some on a plate in the middle of the fridge, and this will soak up the smells. You can also coffee grounds too, as this will help those nasty smells too.
Always Clean With The Power Off
If you are giving your fridge a proper clean out then you are likely to be taking some time about it, having the door open for any extended period of time, then you will be using more energy than usual. This means it is a good idea to put any existing food in a cool box, and turn of the fridge whilst you clean. That way you won’t be worrying about how much power you are using.
Don’t Forget the Drawers
When you are cleaning your fridge it is easy to just target those areas that you can see, but you should try to clean all the nooks and corners. Removing the drawers is a good idea, and then give them a good scrub. You can also then clean the bottom of the fridge, where there is a good chance that you will find some food that has gathered in the corner.
