This is a great method for deep cleaning all your appliances quickly, seasonally, spring cleaning (are you doing my spring cleaning challenge?), or just a cleaning whim. Feel free to split it up and do one appliance at a time, but the magic in the method is that you can thoroughly deep clean ALL your kitchen appliances quickly.
Ready? Make sure you have about an hour to dedicate to this job – it’s frustrating to be mid-project and have to stop.
REFRIGERATOR – throw away anything old or expired, take the rest of the contents out of the refrigerator and take out all removable drawers and shelves. Put the drawers and shelves in the soapy sink and let them soak.
- Mix up 1 teaspoon of dish soap (or my favorite, Dr. Bronner’s Citrus Orange castile soap), 1 teaspoon baking soda, and about 4-6 cups of warm water.
- Wipe down the shelves with a well rung out microfiber cloth, bar mop or dish cloth. Repeat until all shelves and drawers have been wiped clean. Dry if necessary.
