Your refrigerator is an important appliance. Make it the focus of your spring cleaning- now, that’s the kind of spring cleaning I can handle! Take steps to clean and sanitize refrigerator surfaces:

    * First, throw away perishable foods in your refrigerator that should no longer be eaten. Refer to the cold storage chart. * Remove refrigerator drawers and clean them with hot water and soap in the kitchen sink. * Clean other interior refrigerator surfaces with hot water and soap, then rinse with water. Wipe dry with a clean cloth. * After cleaning, use a diluted bleach and water solution (1 T liquid bleach to 1 Gal water) on shelves, drawers and other interior surfaces of the refrigerator. Clean the refrigerator’s condenser coil with a brush or vacuum cleaner to remove dirt and lint. This can help your refrigerator operate more efficiently.
