Get your rubber gloves on and get excited because it’s time for the great fridge clean out! A fresh fridge is the foundation for making meal prep a joy. Erase the trace of last week's funky leftovers, sauce spills, and odors with our steps below.
Go through every shelf and drawer and discard all expired food and lingering leftovers. Check all containers for funky foods that have been sitting around since the first day of Christmas or the last!
Clean It Like You Mean It
Get a handle on sticky substances by grabbing the Scrub Brush and giving your fridge a serious scrub down. Simply add 1 capful of All-Purpose Cleaning Concentrate to a bucket of hot water and wash away stubborn dirt and stains.
Follow by spraying shelves, inner walls and door compartments with Surface Cleaner. Don't forget to also spray the exterior, especially high-use areas such as the handles! Wipe dry with a Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth.
Sniff Out Unpleasant Odors
After all that cleaning, if something smells fishy, it probably is. To eliminate lingering scents, simply fill a glass with 1 cup of Scented Vinegar and allow it to sit in the refrigerator for two days. If odor is a constant issue, keep refreshing the vinegar every two days.
