Who wants to be inside, cleaning their apartment refrigerator, on a beautiful summer day? Not us! So we’re offering these four tips to help our residents breeze through cleanup and get on with the summer fun:
Take Everything Out
You’ll save a lot of time by not shuffling items around as you clean. Go ahead and take everything out in one fell swoop. We know it can get hot in Lewisville; if you’re worried about your food going bad while you clean, set up a cooler beforehand to hold everything while you’re working. It won’t be long. While you’re at it, take out as many drawers and shelves as you can.
Spray the Whole Thing
Spray the entire refrigerator interior down with a mixture of dish soap and water; this works great for cutting through any grease. Baking soda makes a great add-in for extra-gentle scrubbing power.
Prioritize for Soak Time
Got tough messes in your fridge? Spray them down with extra cleaning solution, or lay a saturated cloth atop them, and let them soak while you’re working on the less-soiled pieces. By the time you come back to it, it’ll be much easier to wipe up.
You’re just about done! The only thing you have left to do is wipe down the inside of the refrigerator, wipe dry your shelves and drawers to eliminate water spots, and slide them back in. Take the time to wipe down all the bottles and jars going back into your fridge, too, so they don’t transfer any lingering gunk back onto the shelves.
If you follow these tips, you can have the entire refrigerator clean in 20 to 30 minutes — maybe less. Give us a call if you’d like to use some of that extra time to check out one of the floor plans for our Lewisville apartments.
