How to clean the refrigerator

How to clean the refrigerator

Here we explain how to clean the refrigerator in a simple and effective way.

1. Remove all food that is inside the refrigerator.

Try to leave them in a place with a low temperature so as not to break the cold chain. We recommend that you use freezer bags or portable coolers for this task. We also recommend that you plan in advance when you are going to clean the refrigerator to have as little food as possible inside. You can also take the opportunity to check the condition of the foods you have in the fridge and freezer, making sure the dates have not passed.

2. Take out the trays and drawers

You can clean if you want the inside of the refrigerator with all its equipment, but it is much more comfortable to do so if it is completely empty. Trays, drawers, door shelves or even wine racks and egg cups are removable. But do not clean them in the dishwasher, they risk deforming. For a perfect cleaning of the trays and drawers, all you need is water and detergent (dishwashing liquid).

3. When the refrigerator is completely empty, is there a lot of ice or frost on the back wall?

Removing the frost that can sometimes build up inside is also important. Normally, in models of cyclic refrigerators (i.e. those which are NOT NoFrost), it automatically disappears after each automatic cycle of the compressor. However, if this does not happen, you can check the temperature control to make sure it is not too high. If so, you will need to reduce it by two or three degrees. In any case, do not use sharp objects to remove the ice.

4. How to clean the inside of the refrigerator?

First of all, pay special attention to the rubber on the door, they are very sensitive. Clean them only with plain water and dry it as soon as you are done.
For the rest of the areas, you will only need a soft cloth, lukewarm water and a little pH neutral dishwashing liquid.

5. Door cleaning

If the door is white, clean it as you did with the interior. On the other hand, if it is made of stainless steel, we recommend that you use a microfiber cloth with water and dry the surface with paper, always following the same direction to avoid marks. You can also spray the steel surface with a mixture of water and mild or neutral detergent, then dry it with a paper towel.
Once the interior is clean, do you need some tips to neutralize the bad smells in your refrigerator?
By placing, for example, a cup with ground coffee, baking soda, lemon cut with pinched cloves or even lemon juice, you will get rid of bad smells without always having to resort to deep cleaning. .
