Today I will take you through a step by step on how to deep clean and organize your fridge. This kind of organization is usually good to do once or twice a year. So, get ready!
You will need:
– All purpose cleaner
– Dish Soap
– Vanilla Extract
– Bins, Baskets and Liner are optional
– One to two hours of your valuable time =)
Let’s start with some before pictures.
Remove everything from the refrigerator and put the items on the kitchen counter top or the table. Remove the shelves and drawers.
I cleaned the walls with all purpose cleaner, the shelves and drawers I washed with soap and warm water. One tip that I love is from on of my favorite channels on YouTube “Clean my Space.” I rubbed a little bit of vanilla extract with a Paper Towel on the wall of the fridge, The aroma in there is great now. Ah! Don’t worry it won’t stain the fridge.
I put the shelves back in another configuration for a fresh look and used shelf liner to make things a little bit prettier =) All the expired food and condiments go to trash. Wipe down every jar and food container before putting it back in your clean refrigerator. I also used some plastic storage from the dollar store for baby food, cheese, and sandwiches.
It was amazing how much nicer it looks!
I LOVE this mini refrigerator makeover and I recommend removing everything and starting fresh. You don’t need to spend a small fortune to make things work better in your house. For this organization project we spent less than $5.00. You won’t regret the hour or two you put in to organize your fridge. However, if you feel you can’t do it by yourself, call me and I will be glad to help you =)
