Our desks, kitchen counter tops, drawers, shelves and cabinets may all look well organized, giving an impression of our impeccable personality. But how about those areas which may be hidden and concealed from outside like our refrigerators.
Here are 3 useful tips on refrigerator maintenance:
Tip 1: Declutter
Clutter seems to find its way everywhere, including our refrigerators. The exterior and interior of refrigerators sometimes serve as a clutter zone. How many magnets do we usually stick on our refs? How many times do we quickly shove things inside our already full refrigerators?
Make decluttering your refrigerators part of your cleaning regime. Begin by unplugging your refrigerator before tackling the clutter. Check the expiration dates on all items, remove any vegetables and fruits that have ripened and rotted, throw away milk products that have turned rancid and get rid of anything that has frozen to the maximum. Clearing the clutter in your refrigerator will prepare you for the next step which involves organizing the items inside the refrigerator.
Tip 2: Specific Location
One of the biggest mistakes we tend to make while storing food in the refrigerator is being unaware of specific locations that serve specific purpose inside the refrigerator. For example, the upper levels or shelves usually have consistent temperature and they should be used for herbs, read-to-eat meals or leftovers as well. The lower level should be dedicated to storing meat and dairy products since the temperature at this zone is the coldest.
The vegetable drawers should not be mixed with fruits since it clutters them together and may result in over ripening and discoloration. Keep in mind that air needs to circulate around the space, so don’t congest your refrigerator.
Tip 3: Daily Cleanse
Although cleaning your refrigerator daily sound like a daunting task, crumbs and spills can be easily cleaned every day. Just the way you clean your skin to keep it healthy, you can also adopt some healthy cleansing routine like wiping, sponging and eliminating clutter.
Opening and closing jars, bottles, and containers often cause spills and drips here and there. Make sure you wipe the spills and drips, and clean the sticky jars and bottles. Throw away any leaking containers and jars, and eliminate any stale foods that could be emitting foul odors. Give a quick wipe every day with a damp cloth on areas where you see the need.
