The fridge is a valuable part of almost everyone’s life as it ends food related problems almost instantly. However, many of us forget to clean it. This leads to spoilage of food and development of mold which both causes bad odor. Aside from the unpleasant smell which can also come from leftover residue at the bottom and in the corners of the fridge, owners should also focus on making sure there are no expired or spoiled products or ingredients left inside.
Since the fridge is an electrical appliance, the use of water when sanitizing it should be limited. So, you have to be careful. Instead wiping it clean is more advisable because grime can be collected even without pouring or spraying water.
Proper Ways of Maintaining a Clean the Fridge
Wiping the fridge should be from top to bottom because the residue on each surface that you are wiping may fall through the cracks from one shelf to another. If you start from the bottom up, chances are you’ll just create a build up of grime at the bottom and you will need to clean the whole fridge again after you finish the top layer.
If you have removable shelves in your fridge, it would be a lot easier if you take them all out and clean them separately. You can soak them in a basin with warm soapy water along with the trays for about ten minutes, then wipe down the trays and dry them properly before replacing them.

Aside from using a combination of these effective cleaning tools, we also advice you to practice a good habit. Avoid keeping leftovers that you don’t plan to eat, segregate different types of food properly and separate the cooked from the raw and the fresh product. Keep every container close all the time as well so the odor won’t blend in and affect the food and other ingredients inside.
