Refrigerator and Freezer Cleaning Checklist

You may think you have the technique down cold, but keeping the refrigerator clean requires more than a box of baking soda. Think of this checklist as a refresher course.

  • Remove food. Store the frozen items in coolers. Refrigerated, perishable foods generally won’t spoil during the cleaning process if left at room temperature for under 2 hours.
  • Clean crispers and ice-maker bins. Place in warm water with dish soap and scrub. Empty ice maker (ice can absorb odors).
  • Clean doors, shelves, and walls. Vacuum food crumbs. Wipe with a solution of two tablespoons baking soda and one quart warm water.
