Hacks to Organize Your Refrigerator

Cleaning the fridge is one of the most daunting tasks in your house cleaning regime. Especially if it’s been several months, the fridge can be a dirty place. Having a clean fridge is not only rewarding but much better for your health. Your food will be safe and you’re much less likely to experience contamination or food poisoning.

You should deep clean your fridge about once a quarter. This is about four times per year. If you keep up with it, you’re unlikely to experience too much of a dirty job. This post from Simply Self Storage about how to organize your fridge takes you through the process of cleaning out the fridge from start to finish.

Step 1: Clean out the fridge entirely. Empty it out, wipe down the surfaces and reassemble the fridge. Add a deodorizer while you’re in there!
Step 2: Take out the drawers and soak them in warm water. Give any caked on grease or grime a scrub.
Step 3: Once it’s clean, put a box of baking soda in and get to organizing!
