Get The Fridge Looking Its Best
29 July 2014
Whilst the presentation of your fridge may not be high on your list of priorities, you will find that it is pretty vital that you keep it in good order for a number of reasons. You may well have noticed when going to other people’s houses, that you certainly do judge people’s fridges! The tidiness alongside the contents, smell and general cleanliness is an important factor in terms of how well you keep your food, and letting standards slip is a clear sign that you are not as well kept as you might like to appear! So, in order to get your fridge looking, smelling and feeling great, you should have a look over the following points for reference...1. Only clean your fridge when you don’t have much in there. The process of emptying the fridge in order to clean it is a massive pain, and you will find that it only really makes any sense to do so when you are in a position that you can get it done easily. Removing food from the fridge leaves it susceptible to going off as well, so the fewer things that are put in this position the better. You should use this process to throw anything that has been in there for too long out as well. Things going bad without anyone realizing is one of the main reasons that smells develop in fridges, and once these smells are in place, it can be difficult to get rid of them! 2. When you have cleared out the fridge, you can basically wash the shelves like plates. Most fridges have removable racks or glass panels as shelves, which can be dunked in a soapy sink and washed up very easily. To use your time effectively, have the soapy water ready before you remove the shelves, so that they can be left in there as you clean the rest of the fridge. It is a good idea to leave them soaking, as it will simply get rid of all of the dried on muck that you may otherwise have to scrub off yourself. 3. Spray down the inside of the fridge with surface cleaner, or washing up liquid on a sponge, and as you do so allow it to soak a little. It would be surprising and worrying if there was a huge amount of splatter on the walls of your fridge, but the soap or spray should soak through it and make it easier to wipe away. Wipe down the whole of the inside with the rough side of a sponge or a brush, and make sure that you are rid of everything before you rinse the soap out. 4. Using a wrung out flannel, get rid of all of the lather residue from the fridge. You may need to rinse the flannel out a few times, but it will come out fairly easily in the end. Having gotten the inside of the fridge looking spotless, clean up the shelves, dry them off and replace them. 5. If you want to avoid the fridge getting dirty again quickly, then you should take a cloth and ensure that none of the things that you are putting back in the fridge have any dirt on them, especially round the bottom. To prevent smells, or to get rid of smells that might be lingering, scoop out half do a lemon, and fill it with baking soda. Place this in the corner of the fridge, as the baking soda will absorb smells, leaving a fresh lemon scent.
