This special day comes just in the nick of time. Ten days prior to Thanksgiving day it's time to start the holidays off and clean the fridge. Some times it may be a bit scary but it is still a job that must be done. There may be things in there that the kids have put in and are now in the dark ends of the fridge where we barely see and never reach. We may discover where all our rubber dishes with lids have disappeared to as we participate in this clean up.
The goal is to clean the inside of the fridge. It is important to spray every part of the inside of the fridge with a multipurpose cleaner. Remember to wipe down the walls, shelves, shelf seams and the rubber door seal. A non-abrasive sponge should be used to easily and quickly remove sticky, caked on spills. Using an old toothbrush (now girls just because your hubby did not make you smile today does not mean you can use his toothbrush for this job) to get into the crevices.
Start your job by emptying the contents of your fridge. Anything that has passed its prime and empty containers should be tossed. Glass and plastic containers can be washed and used again
Pull out the drawers and place them in the sink. Scrub the drawers with a sponge, warm water and liquid dish soap. Leave out to dry
Spray the interior of the fridge surfaces with a multi surface spray. Wipe down the walls and each shelf. Remember to wash the shelf seams and rubber door seal. Here is the time to use that old toothbrush to get the grime from crevices the sponge can not reach
The fridge is now clean and you can return the drawers. Time to put the food back in. Be sure to wash off any bottles and jars
Don't forget the exterior of the fridge.
