HOW TO CLEAN A FREEZER
What You Need
Freezers are made for long-term storage. But what happens when you accidentally leave food or drinks in there for too long? Or when something leaks or spills without you noticing? Cue the "who knows how long that's been there" freezer mess.
Whether you're cleaning the chest freezer you use for extra storage in the garage or the one attached to your refrigerator, the space needs good, regular cleanings as much as the other large appliances in your kitchen.
Some cleaning tips insist the best way to clean a freezer is with a mixture of white vinegar and water, but these solutions lack the surfactants needed to help penetrate and loosen sticky spills and gunky spots.
Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner's formula powers out grime, cuts through grease and oils, and removes difficult stains without bleach. The scented formula will deodorize your freezer but won't leave behind a residue that could be absorbed by your food items.
We recommend wiping down the shelves and the freezer door seal once a week, and deep cleaning the entire freezer about once every two or three months.
TIP: Keep an open box of baking soda in your freezer to help absorb odors between cleanings.
