HOW TO CLEAN A REFRIGERATOR
What You Need
Because your refrigerator is always working hard to keep your food and drinks cold, it's bound to get a little disorganized and grubby. The inside gets lined with spills, odors and overcrowding, while the exterior falls victim to sticky smudges and fingerprints.
Granted, the inside of the fridge isn't always showing, so you may neglect cleaning it as often as you clean the rest of your kitchen. But since you store your food and drinks in this environment, it's important that it's kept clean to help prevent you and your family from getting sick.
Believe it or not, it's possible to clean both the inside and outside of your refrigerator with a product that gets the job done without leaving caustic chemicals behind. Some cleaning tips recommend you clean your refrigerator with vinegar and/or lemon juice, 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 old food smells in your fridge but won't leave behind residue that could be absorbed by your food.
Wipe up spills and remove stains as soon as you notice them to maintain cleanliness, and deep clean every 3 to 6 months to keep your refrigerator working, looking and smelling its best.
Inside the Refrigerator
TIP: You may want to line the shelves inside the doors with paper towels to stop condiments and salad dressings from leaving sticky drips and stubborn stains.
TIP: Keep an open box of baking soda on the bottom shelf of your fridge to absorb odors between cleanings.
Outside the Refrigerator
Do not use Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner on the exterior of stainless steel refrigerators and other stainless steel appliances. The degreaser will strip the polish and leave the surface looking dull.
Behind the Refrigerator
Follow these steps once or twice a year to keep the gross, greasy dust and dirt from building up behind the fridge.
