A Spotless Fridge in 20 Minutes

Take your refrigerator from filthy to flawless in 20 minutes with this cleaning checklist.

  • Minutes 1 to 2: Unplug the refrigerator. Slide a coil brush underneath the unit’s kick plate (the rectangular panel just above the floor) to remove dust.
  • Minutes 3 to 7: Empty the contents. Toss anything past its prime into a trash bag. Recycle glass and plastic containers.
  • Minutes 8 to 10: Remove the drawers and place them in the sink. Scrub the drawers with a sponge, warm water, and liquid dish soap. Leave them out to air-dry.
