  • if you have the Dettol wipes they are great to clean, I just did my fridge today and tried organising it a bit so its easier for all.



  • I use warm water with vanilla extract, I aim to clean it once a week on bin night and give all the shelves a wipe over, easier that way.



  • Keep everything sealed. Use cling wrap, sandwich bags, Tupperware or seal clips on bags. Keeps everything fresher and helps prevent spills. Wipe up spills straight away. Regularly wipe out with vinegar. I dilute half/ half water/vinegar. Vinegar is a natural antibacterial cleaner, kills germs and is safe around food.



  • Keep everything sealed and organise in some type of order



  • wipe it out often ss possabile i use pine o clean wipes.



  • i use wet tissues from kfc…simple :D



  • regular clean outs, wipe it down with vinegar from time to time, and make sure you clean up any spills that happen in there before they become crusty and gross!



  • make sure everything is covered to stop smells and cross contamination. and don’t overstock it



  • i like using containers for every thing it keeps our fridge clean for longer …



  • If you clean it more regularly it kinda stays clean. For instance I give it a quick wipe every weekend when we get back home from the shops and thats not the whole fridge t is usually where I see a bit of mess



  • I also use vanilla fridge wipe when I remember, if mouldy teat tree oil in warm water to clean it.



  • Usually every few weeks or how dirty it gets, I wipe down with Vanilla Fresh. With the crispers I take out and wash them or put in the dishwasher. I certainly cant prevent my fridge from getting dirty, especially with the kids.
