How to Clean Your Refrigerator In 15 Minutes or Less
Anyone else have a refrigerator that could use a little help? You know the sticky syrup that spilled as one of your kids took it out of the fridge, but “forgot” to clean it up. Or the who-knows-what green liquid that pooled at the back of the bottom shelf. Yep, the doors are closed, but they’re still there. I know you’re busy, so let me show you how to clean your refrigerator in 15 minutes or less with these hacks!
The first tip I can give you is the best time to do fridge cleaning is when you do your weekly (or bi-weekly shopping). The refrigerator is usually fairly empty, so the job goes more quickly.
The second tip is if you’re like me, you like to clean naturally, especially around food, so for this job, I use ARM & HAMMER™ Super Washing Soda. Since 1874 it’s been all natural – 100% fragrance and phosphate free.

So let’s get to the cleaning, with a family of 6, my fridge could use it!
The Steps to Clean Your Refrigerator in 15 Minutes
1.) Remove all food from the fridge. Dispose of any old or outdated items. If you’re not going to eat it, it goes in the waste or compost bin.
2.) Take out any removable shelves and drawers.
3.) Create a cleaning solution of ½ cup Super Washing Soda dissolved in a gallon of warm water. (Note: if you add vinegar to your solutions, do not use hot water and do not place the mixture in an enclosed container. Also, be sure to leave room for expansion/foaming in the container when making the solution.)
TIP: It’s recommended that you use rubber gloves when cleaning with the solution, plus you won’t ruin your nails 🙂
4.) Starting at the top so that any debris falls onto shelves that haven’t been cleaned, wipe out the inside of the refrigerator with ARM & HAMMER™ Super Washing Soda cleaning solution. Go back through and rinse with a clean, wet sponge.
5.) Wash shelves and drawers with the cleaning solution in the sink. Rinse thoroughly.
6.) Dry shelves and drawers and put them back in the fridge.
7.) Wipe down any sticky or dirty jars and bottles with Super Washing Soda cleaning solution and then rinse with clean, wet sponge.
8.) Place all food items back in the fridge (group like items like lunch food or yogurts for better organization and place all kid-friendly snacks in one place.)
9.) Periodically check the drip pan and annually clean your refrigerator coils.
10.) Pat yourself on the back for a job well done!
