November 15th is National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day

It’s time to tackle the one job that is dreaded by most but is an important task none the less.  It is often due to our hectic and busy lifestyles that the cleaning of the refrigerator gets neglected so hence the creation of National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day that is observed annually on November 15. 
It is perfect timing for this day as the holidays are coming soon and we will need room for all of the leftovers.   You might be surprised what you find on the back of the shelves.  Things are often pushed back as new food is put in the front and it is forgotten.
Here is a fun fact sheet that might help you...
Some suggestions for cleaning your refrigerator are:
  • Empty each shelf.
  • Completely wipe down the inside of refrigerator.
  • Wash drawers and under drawers.
  • Throw away all expired food.
  • Throw away any moldy food.
  •  Get rid of anything that you do not use.
  • Vacuum condenser coils.
  • Vacuum out under refrigerator.
  • Restock shelves and drawers with good food.
  • Enjoy your nice, clean, organized refrigerator.
