Best Way to Quickly Clean Your Refrigerator

How to Clean a Refrigerator

Kitchens are high-traffic areas and the refrigerator is often right in the middle of all that traffic. With all the tasty goodness tucked inside, they get a lot of use, which makes keeping them clean an ongoing challenge—and that’s just the outside of the fridge. That tasty goodness inside can sometimes get old and start to smell, spill or leak, leading to more cleanup.

Cleaning a fridge doesn’t have to be a daunting process. Tub O’ Towels heavy duty wipes and Tub O’ Towels Stainless Steel Wipes can get the job done in no time, keeping your fridge clean and your food safe and fresher longer.

The Harder Way for Cleaning a Fridge

You can find any number of suggestions online about how to clean a refrigerator, both the inside and outside. For the inside, there’s dishwashing liquid and warm water or white vinegar or apple cider vinegar or baking soda and water or ammonia and hot water for soaking drawers or a dab of white toothpaste for stubborn buildups. You get the idea. There’s a fridge full of suggestions you can find. The common thread with each one is to apply the cleaning remedy and then…start scrubbing.

For an enameled steel exterior, a multi-surface solution or dish soap and water followed by a clean cloth to rinse away the residue are a couple suggestions found online. For stainless steel, a microfiber cloth dampened with white vinegar or a commercial stainless-steel spray rubbed in the direction of the grain is a suggestion.

As a side note, kitchen cleaners and disinfecting products (like bleach) are not recommended for cleaning the inside. They contain chemicals that kill common germs, but should not come in contact with food, either directly or indirectly. You can wipe down the inside of the fridge after using these products, but there’s still the risk of food contamination.
