Before you start cleaning the refrigerator, you should consume foods with high water content that are dissolved and at risk of spoilage in a very short time or keep them in another cooler during cleaning.

Cleaning the refrigerator and freezer

To clean the inside of the refrigerator
Fill half a bucket of water. Add 4 tablespoons of vinegar or 2 tablespoons of baking soda in it. Apply this mixture to all surfaces starting from the top of the refrigerator towards the bottom shelves. The vinegar will dissolve the stains settled inside the cabinet.
After cleaning the shelves, you can also use the same mixture for the freezer part. We recommend wiping the refrigerator door with this mixture.
Refreshment with carbonated water
Refrigerator cleaning becomes easier with a mixture of carbonate and water. To try this method, dissolve a pack of baking soda in a glass of water. Take the resulting mixture with the help of a sponge and apply it to all surfaces of the refrigerator. You can prevent scratching the refrigerator by using a soft cloth during cleaning. After the carbonated water waits for 5 minutes on the refrigerator surface, clean the surfaces with a damp cloth. You can apply this method at any time and make the refrigerator look brighter and cleaner. Carbonated water can run to your aid when you do not want to use chemicals.
Place the drying racks in their places in the refrigerator.
Then put each product on its shelf. In other words, vegetables are placed on a crisper shelf, dairy on shelves, medications (if we need to keep them in the refrigerator) in a different compartment with a lid. Arrange the freezer to put the ones most likely to use the same way at the top.
Use dry coffee for bad smells
Make sure to keep your food mouth closed so that the refrigerator always remains hygienic. You should never leave rotten fruits or vegetables. You can place a spoonful of dry coffee in small sauces on each shelf for the refrigerator to smell more spacious.
