How Often Do You Clean Your Fridge?

By Natalie |


For some it is the microwave. For others it is the underside of the bathroom sink. For me? It is the fridge. I am referring of course to the part of the house that I routinely forget to clean.

How often should a fridge be cleaned? For me, it is cleaned whenever it becomes noticeably in need of a wipe down (and let’s be honest, sometimes about a week or two even after that), but there are certain parts of a refrigerator that should be cleaned annually to ensure it will run most efficiently.

After the jump, how to clean your refrigerator, set to a slideshow of some seriously lovely refrigerator eye candy.

    For me (and this is something I just picked up from my mom), the fridge gets cleaned the first Saturday of every month. I usually use hot water and white vinegar, though, instead of hot water and baking soda (thought perhaps you could use them both and get to make a mini-volcano while you clean!) Also, for cleaning microwaves: fill a Pyrex with water and lemon juice, and then microwave it for 5 minutes, and let it sit for another five, then wipe it down. The steam softens up the worst of the gunk and the lemon does something to the awful burnt-popcorn smell (does anyone else have that problem?)
