Fastest and Easiest Way to Clean Your Freezer

While most folks are pretty good about cleaning out the refrigerator, it can be easy to forget that the freezer needs a little TLC now and then as well. If you're worried about cleaning your freezer, all of us at EH Clean can assure you that it's not as difficult as you might think. Cleaning out the freezer gets a bad reputation because it used to be a huge ordeal due to the amount of frost that builds up. Fortunately, you won’t encounter this layer of ice in most modern refrigerator models, meaning it’s possible to clean your freezer in as little as 25-30 minutes.

To do the job, you’ll need the following items:

  • A large cooler
  • Ice
  • Distilled white vinegar
  • Hot water
  • A spray bottle
  • Microfiber cloths
  • An old toothbrush

Remove all the food from your freezer and place it in your cooler with the ice. Take this time to check the expiration dates on your frozen food. If they’ve passed, toss the item.

Unplug your refrigerator. Don’t worry about the food inside the fridge. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) states that food will stay cold for about four hours without power if you don’t open the refrigerator door. This chore shouldn’t take you more than an hour. Just make sure people aren’t going in and out of the fridge as you work.

Mix equal parts vinegar and hot water in your spray bottle. This is your cleaning solution.

Spray the inside of the freezer generously with your cleaner and wipe the solution away with a dry microfiber cloth. You may need to repeat this step a few times to get your freezer clean.

For stubborn spills or food gunk, dip the old toothbrush in hot water. Scrub gently until the area is clean and wipe any residue away with a microfiber cloth.

Wipe the inside of your freezer dry with a clean microfiber cloth, making sure you don’t leave any liquid behind.

Wash your freezer drawers, bins and ice trays using the instructions in the section below.

Plug your freezer back in and replace your food. If the ice in your cooler has started to melt, wipe any liquid off of food items before returning them to the freezer.
