1. Prepare the Basic Cleaning Essentials.
Be prepared to clean your fridge by having gloves, sponge/cloth, warm water, vinegar and baking soda ready. This will eliminate the need to procrastinate since supplies are readily available. Also, scheduling the time to clean your fridge will hold you accountable to completing the task.
2. Remove Everything.
Remove everything from your shelves and drawers. This may take a little bit of time but it will give you a chance to throw out anything expired and re-organize your fridge. This is also your chance to change your dietary habits to a healthier one.
3. Start Wiping and Scrubbing.
Fill a bucket with warm water, take your sponge/cloth and start wiping the shelves and inside surfaces of your fridge. Optional: Use 1 part vinegar, 1 part water to eliminate bacteria. Afterwards, use a small amount of baking soda with tiny amount of water to create a paste and apply it on for 15-30 minutes to remove any tough stains. The baking soda breaks down the particles and absorbs odor.
Lastly, don’t forget to clean the exterior!
