How to quickly clean the refrigerator inside: toothpaste and cider will help

Washing the fridge is definitely not your favorite household chore. General cleaning of the refrigerator, including defrosting, takes a lot of time, which can lead to food spoilage. And the surface is sometimes difficult to clean from old dirt.

There are several life hacks that will help you clean your fridge quickly and effortlessly. Read about the most effective ones in the OBOZREVATEL article.

How to clean the refrigerator

Turn off the power for a few hours in advance. Or wait until the power is cut off in the house and start cleaning as soon as the power comes back on.

It is not recommended to wash the refrigerator frequently. It is enough to do it once every 3-4 months.

Remove all food, shelves, metal elements and stands from the compartments - they should be washed separately.

Clean the most soiled areas first, then wash the inside, recesses and corners. Do not forget about the rubber seals - a lot of bacteria accumulate under them.

Finally, wipe the refrigerator with a wet cloth and dry it with a paper towel. Do not plug the appliance in until it is completely dry.

Life hack with baking soda

Baking soda is an all-purpose cleaner that quickly gets rid of dirt, stains, and odors.

Make a mixture by adding 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a container of 1.5 liters of water. It is better to take warm, but not hot water so that the baking soda dissolves faster. Wipe the refrigerator with a sponge dipped in the solution.

Baking soda can also remove unwanted yellowness.

Life hack with vinegar

Vinegar, despite its unpleasant odor, is a great way to get rid of dirt. Mix water and vinegar in a 1:1 ratio. For example, 100 ml of warm water and 100 ml of vinegar.

Mix thoroughly, soak a sponge in the solution and wash the refrigerator. Remove the remaining solution with a dry cloth.

Life hack with cider

Apple cider is the perfect solution to unpleasant odors. Make sure that the drink is natural and sugar-free. Pour a liter of water into a container and dissolve a glass of cider in it.

Use a sponge or scouring pad soaked in the solution to wipe the surface of the refrigerator, shelves, metal and plastic parts. Pay special attention to the door.

Remove any cider residue with a damp towel and then a dry cloth.

It is important not to dilute cider in too hot water to avoid damaging the surface.

Life hack with toothpaste

First of all, make sure that the toothpaste does not contain any coloring or flavoring.

Squeeze a thin layer of toothpaste onto a sponge and clean the inside of the refrigerator. Do not rinse it off immediately - leave it on for 15 minutes. After that, use a damp cloth dipped in warm water to remove the remaining paste.

The paste will quickly remove unpleasant odors.

Life hack with lemon

You can take half a lemon or buy citric acid in the store. Take 2 tablespoons of juice or acid, mix them with water. You don't need too much liquid, 0.5 liters of slightly heated water will do.

Mix the mixture thoroughly until the citric acid dissolves. Dip a cloth in the solution, wring out excess moisture and wipe the refrigerator.

Leave the refrigerator open to allow the odors to evaporate faster.

Housewives offer another interesting way. To avoid washing the refrigerator too often, you can put a cup or saucer with lemon zest on the shelf. This will help to avoid unpleasant odors.
