    Default Keeping That Fridge Clean!

    If your refrigerator has wire shelves, ask your local hardware store if they have sheets of acrylic or plastic that can be cut to fit the width and epth of your shelves. This will help to keep smaller items from tipping over and make cleaning up spills much easier. Don't forget to bring measurements with you.

    # Clean up any spills as soon as they happen. That means that you need to remove the drawers and clean under them. This is the location with the most potential for trouble as the stains are likely to stay.
    # Always store food in covered containers. Open things can easily spill or be pushed to the back and forgotten about until they spill.
    # Keep an eye on the leftovers. That is, you should not allow food to sit in your fridge for too long. You want to make sure that all food is thrown out as soon as it gets bad. Food that is stored too long will develop mold which could contaminate other foods as well.
    # Monitor the temperature in it. You need to keep the gauge set accurately so that food does not spoil, but also so that bacteria does not grow.
    # To keep odors from moving from one type of food to the next, store an open box of baking soda in the refrigerator.

    Fly lady says to clean a shelf a day. I should, but I tend to clean it when I see it. That's not working, my eyes see what they want to see. So, as I clean up after supper, I'm going to open that fridge and give it a swipe.

    I use a thin coating of glycerin on my glass shelves. It really does make it easier to clean up spills.

    Good tip. I have glass shelves. I HATE cleaning the fridge!! I always put it off as long as I can. I know, I'm awful. I think, I need to do the shelf a day approach.
