Day #18 – Busy Mom’s Spring Cleaning Challenge

day18Day #18’s challenge is to Clean Your Refrigerator!  This is a task I usually dread doing.  Throughout the year, I clear out the old food and wipe down the shelves on a more-or-less regular basis, but over many months food still leaks, drips, spills, and gets into all those cracks/crevices or beneath the drawers.  A good, thorough cleaning may seem like a large task but the results are worth it!  Just imagine a shiny, fresh smelling fridge where you aren’t worried about whatever’s growing beneath!

Grab a rag and some cleaner (I like to use watered-down vinegar in a spray bottle), empty your fridge of EVERYTHING (food, drawers, shelving, whatever else is removable) and get cleaning!  When you’re done, enjoy your brand new, just-like-you-moved-in fridge with pride!

Extra Credit Ideas for the Super Motivated:

Since your food is already out, look through and get rid of any expired condiments before returning them to your shelves.  Go ahead and wipe down any sticky jars or bottles while you’re at it!

    All done. I even fixed the broken door shelf.

  3. Candice says:

    All done and my fridge looks great! It was relatively clean seeing as we just moved in to our house last month, but it was in desperate need of some organization.

  4. Taryn says:

    I just did this 2 weeks ago when we had our fridge repaired! Today I cleaned out leftovers, reorganized and and wiped down the shelves. This weekend I will work on the outside fridge!

    I think this is one of the most satisfying for me. I look in the refrigerator a good 20 times a day…to have it sparkly clean and *organized* is such a treat. 🙂

  9. Megan says:

    I did it. And also the extra credit. My fridge seems so empty now!

  10. Lauren johnson says:

    I always try to keep my fridge clean, but I had never completely pulled out those bottom drawers. Oh my. I’m glad I wasn’t pregnant while cleaning today. 😉

    Done! I did this yesterday but I thought I commented on it. I guess I didn’t. Oops! But it is done!

Ooh, a comment! I LOVE comments!
