The primary function of a refrigerator is to ensure food does not go bad, but very often the appliance is too unhygienic to follow through on this promise. Stains left on the shelves by milk cartons, sauces and jam containers slowly develop into a breeding ground for fungi. Which is why, knowing some refrigerator cleaning hacks is extremely important.
In this post, we tell you:
• Tips to clean your refrigerator
• Ways to ensure your refrigerator stays clean
Once the trays and baskets are in place, here is what you need to do:
1. Put plastic mats or kitchen towels on top of the trays and underneath the crisper box. You can also use plastic wraps and even cling films. Remember to put kitchen towels at the bottom of the crisper. This will ensure that any juice from the vegetables or fruits will not make the bottom very dirty. Replace this paper every week for best results.
2. Wipe off the water droplets from the containers before you put them back. This prevents any mess and the bottles will not slip from your kid’s hands.
3. Move all leftovers to glass containers. This will ensure you see them and eat them instead of forgetting them inside for weeks. You can also use stickers or post-its to mark the things separately.
4. If you are a stickler for keeping similar things together, then buy some trays or bins where you can put such things together. This is especially true for the freezer as ice on the meat and fish packets make it difficult to pull them out. Keeping them in separate boxes will make it easier to take them out, especially if you have a non frost-free refrigerator.
5. Keep a container of activated carbon at the back of the bottom shelf. This will deodorize the fridge better. If you do not have activated carbon at home, then keep a bowl of baking soda or cut a lemon in half and keep it inside for 2-3 days before replacing it with another one. If you like the smell of coffee, you can also keep a few coffee beans in a small bowl to keep the fridge smelling good.
And there you have it! If you feel you’d rather sit back and relax, then book refrigerator cleaning service in Dubai on Urban Company 🙂
