People put off cleaning out the fridge because it’s a lot of work and can also be gross. People tend to leave food in there too long. This gives tips for cleaning it. These can make it easier so you’ll be less likely to put it off. Since this is where your food is kept you definitely want it clean.
- You should clean your refrigerator at least every three months as long as you put all food away in sealed containers, and clean up drips and spills when they happen.
- For safety reasons unplug your fridge before cleaning it. Move everything out and clean the fridge as quickly as possible so your food won’t spoil while you are working.
- Don’t forget to clean the coils, too, although you only need to do that about twice a year. Check your refrigerator’s owner’s manual for exact instructions and location of your coils.
