How to deep clean your fridge

Five simple steps to a sparkling and beautifully organised fridge…

Plan ahead

First, empty all food from the fridge. Bacteria can multiply quickly at room temperature so put dairy products, meat and other food that needs to be kept refrigerated in a cool bag packed with pre-chilled cool bag blocks. It’s a good idea to do the deep clean the fridge before the weekly shop when there will be less food in the fridge anyway.

Bin any food that is clearly past its prime or anything that is past its use-by date.

Wash shelves and salad drawers

Take out the salad crisper drawers from the bottom of the fridge and take out all the removable shelves. If it’s not obvious how to get them out, check the user manual before you start so you know exactly how to do it without damaging anything – it will also help you to get them back in! If you can’t find the user guide, check the manufacturer’s website or try espares.co.uk.

Next, wash the shelves and the salad crispers thoroughly with washing-up liquid and hot water. If the shelves (or any other removable parts) are made of glass, it’s best to let them reach room temperature first to reduce the risk of them shattering in very hot water.

Use a toothpick to remove food residue that has collected in the join between the surface of the shelf and the shelf surround. Rinse the shelves and salad crispers with clean water, then allow them to dry naturally on the drainer or dry with a clean tea towel and put them to one side if your drainer isn’t big enough.

Wipe down the interior

Now turn your attention to the inside of the fridge itself. Avoid using hot water at this point as it can raise the temperature of the fridge and this will delay how quickly you can get your perishable food back in. Instead, make up a solution of Milton Sterilising Fluid with cold water, and use this to wipe down the interior.

Pay particular attention to the grooves on the sides of the fridge interior where which the shelves rest, as they can be hotspots for dirt. A cotton bud is a handy tool for getting old food out of these. Cotton buds are also useful for fiddly places, such as the drip hole at the back which can easily become clogged and grimy. Dry the inside of the fridge thoroughly using paper towels or a clean tea towel.

Clean outer surfaces

Don’t overlook areas outside the fridge such as the handle and door surround, where germs can build up through frequent contact with hands. If you have a fridge freezer with the freezer at the bottom, use the crevice nozzle of your vacuum cleaner to remove food crumbs that have collected in the folds of the freezer door seal. Alternatively, use a stiff washing up brush to dislodge them.

Run the corner of a linen or cotton tea towel dipped in Milton solution along the folds for a hygienic clean and use a fresh corner of the towel to dry the door seal afterwards.

Allow to cool

Replace the shelves and salad crisper drawers. If you have a fridge thermometer, wait until the temperature inside the fridge falls to 5°C or below before replacing the food. If your fridge has a fast-cool function, use it to speed up the cooling process.

House Cleaner Wimbledon

Hiring a House Cleaner Wimbledon was an easy decision

I’m the first to confess that house cleaning isn’t my favourite task of the week. In fact, I would prefer not to do it all if I had the choice.

I work full time and often need to travel to meet clients either face to face or more recently via online video meetings, so it’s hard to juggle my busy schedule.

As a busy mum with two teenage daughters, I find it very difficult to balance the tasks between keeping the house clean and keeping on top of my work. So it became obvious to me that we needed to find a house cleaner in Wimbledon.

Initially, locating a first rate cleaner was hard. I spoke with many friends and colleagues and even posted adverts online, however, they did not work. Either the responses were very slow or non-existent or they were in poor English and I could not understand what they were saying.

Then I bumped into a friendly neighbour and told them about my challenge, she advised that she had been using First Choice Cleaners for a couple of years and that they were fantastic. So without any further hesitation, I called First Choice Cleaners and was very impressed with the first contact. I spoke with the owner of the company and she explained the full service to me and the fact that they had been operating in the Wimbledon area for almost 20 years!! That sounded like music to my ears.
