How to Clean Your Fridge From Top to BottomSo, you think it’s time to clean your fridge? Or maybe it’s a “I have to clean my fridge right now because it smells so bad” type of cleaning? Either way, you’ve come to the right place. Refrigerator cleaning is one of the add-on services our Eldersburg cleaning company provides, so we know all about it. Here is a quick guide to all the nooks and crevices in your fridge you should remember to scrub. Or if by the end of it you don’t feel like cleaning, just give us a call.
Unplug itHave you ever tried cleaning a working refrigerator? If so, you probably remember your cleaning spray turning into slush before you could do anything with it. Unplugging the fridge makes cleaning easier, as well as saves energy your fridge would otherwise waste trying to counteract the open door. Keep in mind that unplugging the fridge also turns off all the lights inside of it. If this makes it hard to see dirt and stains, be sure to use alternative sources of lighting, such as your kitchen lights or a task lamp.
Empty the FridgeIn order to clean the inside of the fridge, you need to empty it first. This is also a great opportunity to get rid of any foods that outstayed their welcome. Carefully sort through every jar, bag and Tupperware container and throw away the following:
- Food that is expired (Hello, a can of olives from 2012!)
- Food that is obviously spoiled (Hey there, moldy mozzarella!)
- Food that may be good but that you are never going to eat (Why do I have apple sauce? I don’t even like apple sauce!)
