How to speed-clean your fridge

10 October 2011, 09:37

15 minutes is all the time you need to get it from filthy to fresh!

What you’ll need:

15 minutes
Toothbrush x 2
Dishwashing liquid
Multi-surface detergent
Paper towels

1 – 3 Minutes

•    Unpack all the food.
•    Discard items that have expired and those that you know you won’t be using.
•    Unplug it.
•    Glide the toothbrush underneath the refrigerator to get rid of the dust build-up.

4 – 6 Minutes

•    Remove the shelving and drawers.
•    Wash them thoroughly using the sponge and dishwashing liquid.
•    Leave them out to dry naturally.
•    Spray the inside of the (empty) fridge with the multi-surface detergent.

7 – 9 Minutes

•    Using the cloth and detergent, start wiping down the inside walls of the fridge.
•    With the second toothbrush, remove the dirt from the shelf slots/crevices.
•    Rinse the cloth in clean, chemical-free warm water and wipe down the inside once more.
•    Dry the inside using paper towels.

10 – 12 Minutes

•    Using the cloth and detergent again, start wiping down the outside of the fridge.
•    Rinse the cloth in clean, chemical-free warm water and wipe down the exterior once more.
•    Dry the exterior using the paper towels.

13 – 15 Minutes

•    Plug the fridge on again.
•    Place the shelves and drawers back inside.
•    Wipe down all food jars and containers.
•    Return food to a sparkling fridge.

And you're done!
