On the 15th November, it's time to put on some gloves and clean out all those unidentifiable foods for Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day!
Some may cringe at the thought of making contact with those nasty leftovers from 2 months ago, but it's a task that needs to be done. Often we take our refrigerator for granted, but with the holiday season fast approaching the least we can do is have the refrigerator ready for those unexpected guests.
So lets get started:
- Take everything out
- Throw out any open jars that you know won't be used again
- Take out the shelving and drawers and wash them with warm soapy water
- Wash the inside walls of the refrigerator
- Wash down the outside of the refrigerator as well as the surrounding floor
Keep a cooler near your cleaning area to place any perishable foods whilst they are out of the refrigerator.
Don't forget the freezer!
It may seem like an unbearable task, but you'll thank yourself once it is sparkling clean!
