How to clean your fridge

To do daily to decrease overall cleaning:
~Clean any spills immediately

~Check for any expired food and discard bad items

~Place anything likely to drip or leak on a plate

Spring Cleaning Checklist:
~Turn off the power

~Remove all food and put in deep freezer or cooler

~Remove shelves and crisper drawers. If shelves are glass, bring to room temperature before you wash them so they don't crack.

~Wipe the interior with a solution of 2 tablespoons baking soda and 1 quart hot water. Rinse and wipe dry. Be careful when using soap since it can leave behind fragrance, which will be absorbed by food.

~Wash shelves and bins in same solution. Wipe dry and replace.

~Clean the door seals with hot water and liquid soap; dry thoroughly with a clean cloth. Check the seals periodically.

~Clean the drip pan or tray, if your refrigerator has one. Check your manual for location and cleaning tips.

~Vacuum under fridge and base grill
