Ideally, the interiors of refrigerators and freezers should be cleaned about every 3-4 months, but if you live in a busy household, chances are your appliances are way overdue for a thorough cleaning. Spring into action with these easy step-by-step directions, brought to you by all of us at EH Clean!
Consult the manufacturer's manual for general cleaning of your appliances before beginning. Since frozen foods stay colder longer, clean the freezer compartment first. (If you need to defrost the freezer before cleaning, follow manufacturer's instructions.)
Turn the power controls off.
Transfer foods to a covered insulated cooler.
Using a solution of 1-2 tablespoons baking soda in 1 quart warm (not, hot) water, wash the interior. Remove shelves, drawers and other removable parts for separate cleaning. Rinse and wipe dry. (NOTE: If odors and stains are especially stubborn, disinfect with a solution of 3/4 cup liquid chlorine bleach mixed with 1 gallon warm water.)
If appliances are heavily soiled, it may be necessary to change the cleaning solution several times.
To clean the refrigerator, repeat steps 2 through 5.
Vacuum dust from the condenser and wash the drain pan. (Consult your manual for specific location and directions.)
Return interior parts and food to the clean freezer and refrigerator.
Turn the power back on.
Wash the exterior surfaces with warm, soapy water or as manufacturer directs.
