How to maintain cleanliness in the refrigerator

Washing the refrigerator is not the most pleasant household chore, but it should be done regularly to prevent unpleasant odors and bacterial growth. It is also important to follow the rules of food placement: vegetables should be placed on the bottom shelf, dairy products and semi-finished products in the middle, and a door is an ideal place for yogurt, sauces, and condiments.

Food should be stored under normal conditions and at the optimum temperature. And you can use an effective life hack to avoid washing the refrigerator so often. Read OBOZREVATEL's article on how to line the shelves in the refrigerator to keep it clean.

There is one budget-friendly but effective way to keep shelves clean and protect surfaces from scratches. You just need to cover the shelves with cling film. Dirt will not appear on the surfaces; they will always look clean and tidy and will not have scuffs from interaction with the dishes. As soon as the cling film is torn or dirty, you just need to put a new one on.

Before covering the shelves with cling film, you need to wash them and dry them completely. You can 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.

You can also use vinegar or even apple cider. Read more about the proportions and features of cleaning in the article.

Special mats for refrigerators are sold in stores - this is a less budgetary but more practical way. The mats will last longer than the film. They have a special antimicrobial coating.
