Maintaining a clean and organized refrigerator is essential for food safety and freshness.

With our green seal certified cleaning products and these simple tips, you’ll have your fridge looking and smelling fresh in no time!

  1. Empty and Declutter: Start by removing all items from your refrigerator. Check expiration dates and dispose of any expired or spoiled food items. Take this opportunity to declutter by tossing out any unused or unwanted condiments and leftovers.
  2. Remove Shelves and Drawers: Take out all removable shelves, drawers, and bins from the refrigerator. Wash them with warm, soapy water using a sponge or cloth. For tough stains or spills, create a paste of baking soda and water and gently scrub the affected areas.
  3. Clean Interior Surfaces: Using a mixture of equal parts water and white vinegar, wipe down the interior walls, shelves, and door compartments. This natural solution helps to disinfect and deodorize your fridge without leaving behind any harmful residue. Rinse with clean water and dry thoroughly before replacing shelves and drawers.
  4. Tackle the Exterior: Don’t forget to clean the exterior of your refrigerator as well. Wipe down the door handles, seals, and outer surfaces with a mild cleaning solution or a mixture of water and vinegar. Pay special attention to any spills or stains, and use a soft cloth to avoid scratching the finish.
  5. Organize and Restock: Once your refrigerator is clean and dry, organize your food items before placing them back inside. Consider using clear storage containers or bins to keep things neat and easily accessible. Be sure to check the temperature settings to ensure optimal food storage conditions.

By following these easy steps, you can keep your refrigerator clean and fresh between professional cleanings. At Sweep, we’re dedicated to providing green cleaning solutions and helpful tips to help you maintain a healthy and happy home. Stay tuned for more cleaning tips and tricks from the Sweep team!
