A fridge is certainly one of the most important appliances in your home and helps you preserve the freshness of food. To keep your fridge stain-free, non-greasy and smelling fresh, stick to a disciplined cleaning schedule, preferably every fortnight.

Surface cleaning your fridge regularly can help you maintain its finish and lustre. You can reduce your time and effort, simply by following the steps below. The cleaning process here is designed especially keeping in mind the demands of the modern Indian woman.

Let’s get started.

Step 1: Unplug your Fridge

Like all other electric appliances, it is important to unplug your fridge before you start cleaning it.

How do you know that the surfaces in your kitchen and bathroom have been disinfected?

Step 2: Clean the Exteriors

Make a cleaning solution by mixing 1 tsp. of liquid dishwashing liquid in a bowl of water. Next, soak a clean cloth or sponge in the solution and wipe the exteriors of your fridge. Next, wipe away the soapy solution with a clean cotton cloth. Ensure that there is no residue moisture as this can cause spotting and streaking.

Step 3: Polish the Surface

You can use a wax polish to preserve your fridge’s lustre. Dab a clean cloth in wax polish and buff your refrigerator using a circular motion.

Step 4: Clean the Door Handles

Make another cleaning solution by mixing ½ a tsp. of dishwashing liquid and ½ a tsp. of vinegar in a bowl of warm water. Use this solution to remove grease stains from the door handles of your fridge.

Step 5: Dust the Coils

Dust and pet hair can collect in the coils at the back of your refrigerator. Dust them off with a clean cotton cloth or vacuum-clean the area, because dusty coils can lower your fridge’s cooling efficiency.

Once you are done cleaning your refrigerator, plug in the power supply. It won’t be long before you can treat yourself to an ice-cold beverage again!
