The first place to clean is the rubber on the door as this is where most germs accumulate. Vinegar will be an ideal assistant. Soak a sponge or cloth in a mixture of vinegar and water and wipe the rubber well. Shelves can be washed with vinegar solution. To prepare it, mix water and vinegar in a 1:1 ratio (100 ml each). When everything is dry, put a roll of paper inside the refrigerator.
