Ah, the fridge. Easily one of the most important parts of the home. It also tends to be one of the messiest and least sanitary. With all of the food we bring after we eat out or store after a grocery trip, we constantly leave the fridge in a cluttered state. Add in the leftovers we’ve saved after the family dinner, and it’s a miracle the refrigerator has any space at all. If this situation sounds like you, then getting a clean refrigerator is a must.
Luckily for you, you’ve come to the right place. This article has a few quick tips that you can use to get your fridge, clean, organized, and in top shape. Read on to learn more!
A Clean Refrigerator Starts with a Food Purge
One of the worst things to spot in a refrigerator is an expired bowl of food. It’s even worse when your friend or family member spots it before you do.
Obviously, no one wants expired food in their stock, but it’s not hard for that to occur, especially if your fridge is spacious, compact, or otherwise easy to lose food in.
Make sure you make it a regular habit (maybe twice a month) to go through the fridge and pull out any expired meals that made their way to the back, so you can clear up some space as you clean your house.
Give it a Wash Job
Everything in your kitchen deserves a good wipe down, and that includes your refrigerator. Unfortunately, we usually don’t add it to the list.
It’s easy to overlook your fridge when it comes to cleaning. Apparently, we expect it to be able to do it on its own (it can do everything else, so why not?), but that isn’t the case.
Make it a routine to go through your refrigerator and wipe down the inner and outer walls, as well as any drawers and shelves on the inside. You’ll love the nice shine afterward.
Organize, Organize, Organize
In order to keep your fridge clean, you need to know how to organize your items. Otherwise, you’ll be back to square one fighting against a bunch of expired food – and that’s the last thing you want.
Knowing how to organize your fridge is more important than you might think. When you have your food placed in its own proper location, you can not only keep things stacked correctly, but you also know which draw or shelf holds a specific item.
Place your fruits, vegetables, meats, and leftovers all in separate and neat areas so that you can quickly get what you need and start eating.
