What’s the best cleaner for fridges? Is there one way to clean the fridge that’s better than others?  I usually use washing up liquid to hand wash all the shelves and then a general cleaning spray but not sure this is right.

  • I add a few drops of vanilla essence to warm water and wipe my fridge out with tgat


  • Sounds you’re doing a good job, don’t doubt yourself.
    I use a vinegar eucalyptus oil solution as it desinfects well.


  • Probably soap and water is best as they never recommend harsh products to clean whitegoods as it may damage some parts of the item on the surface


  • Great! Really interesting comments read on this!


  • Try the vanilla fridge spray its great


  • yeah i use the vanilla fridge spray which you can also use for microwaves and benches, food safe. smells so good after and not chemically


  • cleaning fridge take shelves out and wash can also spray and with paper towel polish dry
    then spray and whip fridge and freezer walls, difficult stains jiffy I use and stains away fly
    find paper towel fantastic it is true as a shine and drying affect it gives a clean and shiny hue


  • I use the vanilla fridge spray, it works wonders!


  • White vinegar and warm water is the best !!


  • I use Jif. After I have cleaned it I use a little bit of vanilla essence and wipe over the walls and shelves for a fresh and lovely fragrance.


  • Vinegar is good….its pretty good for so many things.
    There is a nice vanilla scented cleaner that you can get from the supermarket if you like the scent of vanilla.


  • We take our shelves out and wash them in the sink same as the dished then just wipe the inside with a wet cloth. Works for us


  • 50/50 white vinegar and water, then if you want it to smell nice wipe over with vanilla spray.
    When finished put a low container of bicarb in the back somewhere to keep it smelling fresh


  • I use vanilla essence in a spray bottle with water works perfect.


  • I love the vanilla fridge spray – I think that is the best
