Lifestyle Challenge: The “Perfect” Fridge
Your refrigerator works hard for you, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, keeping your food fresh and safe!
When was the last time you treated it to a good scrub?
This week I’m challenging you to treat your fridge to a good cleaning!
A basic rule of thumb is to:
🍏 Inspect the contents weekly, removing anything that’s spoiled and wiping down any spills
🍓 Thoroughly clean your fridge with the change of each season
Use a natural, gentle cleaning solution for your refrigerator.
Or, you can make your own by mixing 2 tablespoons of baking soda in a quart of water.
If you do use a harsher cleanser, make sure it’s food safe and doesn’t contain any strong scents that your food will absorb.
The “Perfect Clean” Fridge Guide:
🍑 Remove everything from the refrigerator (including the shelves!)
🍋 Tossing anything expired, or that you don’t need
🍇 Let the shelves and bins come to room temp and wipe down the inside of your fridge with the baking soda mixture.
🍉 Use a damp cloth to wipe away the cleaning solution, and then dry with a clean towel
🍏 Use more of the baking soda/water solution and soak the shelves and bins
🍓 Dry your shelves and bins and return everything to the refrigerator.
Voila! Your fridge will look great when you’re finished.
