Easy Clean Your Refrigerator



If your household is anything like mine, all too often your refrigerator needs cleaning (I mean DEEP cleaning) long before you actually do it.

If your household is anything like mine, little (or not so little) hands spill syrup or jam inside the fridge and don't clean it up, leaving you to discover dried sticky goo, that will require scraping and scrubbing to remove.

I discovered this easy tip from www.apartmenttherapy.com. and I've decided to give it a try.

After cleaning your refrigerator wrap the glass shelves in Press-n-Seal plastic wrap, then when you are ready to clean your fridge again, just remove the Press-n-Seal wrap, toss it, do a quick wipe of your fridge and apply fresh sheets of Press-n-Seal to the shelves.

If you are not familiar with  this special wrap, it  has a slightly sticky side and  is thicker than regular plastic wrap.

I did find that it helps to make the Press-n-Seal wrap longer than the shelf and wrap it around and press the remaining overlap to the glass shelf from underneath.












I took a minute or two to smooth it out. It does sticky pretty well, but not perfectly.  I did find that if I lightly misted the glass shelf with water before applying the plastic it seemed to help it stick better.

We'll see how it works out, but so far so good.  
If you've tried it what did you think of it?

  1. okay that is perfect, my fridge always has drips, I hate watching hubby clean it, because there is no way I would.

    1. Let me know how it works out. So far mine has held up pretty good. I need to change one of the shelves liners though from a puddle of something I see in the back. Yuck.

  2. I found these things at Bed, Bath and Beyond that were suposed to go on the shelves in the fridge and I thought that I was going to buy it with a store credit but I changed my mind because it seemed like they would slip around. I opted for my two trouble spots under the milk and under the ice tea pitcher to put a silicone trivet that we already owned. It has made a huge difference in cleaning out the fridge. I should have a post up on it soon!!! I took pictures and still haven't written it :) This is a great idea too :)

  3. I just did this in my fridge. I've had it pinned for ever and have been wanting to do it. It didn't seem to stick well at all. I'm interested to see how long it lasts. At least I found that it doesn't take that long to clean out my fridge anyway...lol!

    I bought clear cutting board sheets at Dollar Tree and when they get yucky I take them out and wash them and put them back...

  5. I bought 2 disposable aluminum cookie sheets at the Dollar Store and put them on top of the glass shelf. Just take them out and wipe them off when they get messy. Works great.
