When is the Right Time to Clean Your Refrigerator?
A refrigerator is a kitchen appliance that functions daily to keep the freshness of fruits, vegetables, and food stored in it. Furthermore, a refrigerator has the duty of producing ice cubes and is capable of extending the shelf life of food.
But be careful, don’t force the performance of your refrigerator. A refrigerator must occasionally be cleaned to maintain its maximum performance and prevent bacteria growth in the refrigerator due to long neglected leftovers.
When is the Best Time to Clean a Refrigerator?
This depends on the type and quality of the refrigerator that you own. For a regular quality refrigerator, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends that you lightly clean the refrigerator at least once a week.
Of course, this is also determined by several factors that may necessitate the cleaning of the refrigerator, such as the expiry date and condition of the food stored in it.
This is to minimize the risk of food poisoning and potentially occurring unpleasant odors in the refrigerator due to the accumulated bacteria and germs.
The refrigerator cleaning process includes cleaning food spills on the racks of the refrigerator to prevent bacteria contaminating other food, cleaning the handle of the refrigerator door, and other areas potentially exposed to bacteria.
For cleaning, you can use baking soda paste made of water and baking soda to clean all areas of the refrigerator, including the body, drip tray, and other areas.
