  • Bacteria That Can Exist in The Refrigerator

The 2020 coronavirus has trained everyone to be clean, but unbeknownst to all, the biggest breeding ground for bacteria is in the home.

Listeria monocytogenes is widespread in nature, and its nickname is “refrigerator killer”. Therefore, we need to clean the refrigerator regularly (recommended every 2-3 months), and separate raw and cooked food, cooked ingredients.

In addition, there are many bacteria like the refrigerator low temperature, such as: Salmonella, enterobacter, etc.. Can avoid the virus, but can not avoid the bacteria !

  • Steps to Clean The Refrigerator

1. Preliminary preparation.

I searched carefully and found that the recommended “natural cleaner” on the internet is baking soda + hot water or vinegar. At the same time, will also use a rag or cleaning sponge, soft brushes or toothbrushes, the conditions can be used to vacuum cleaner.Cleaner recipe: 2 tablespoons baking soda and 1 quart hot water.

Super recommended home essential soda, Costco has a superb deal large packets sold, but I like to buy such a small boxed, too large packets do not use up will expire, hard. Need to remind you of one thing: do not use detergent or dishwashing liquid to wipe the inside of the refrigerator, if not clean, there will be taste residue, and food is adsorbed odor !

2. Power off.

For deep cleaning, it is best to disconnect the refrigerator for insurance purposes and to save energy.

3. Take everything out and throw away expired food.

In order to avoid food spoilage, it is recommended to prepare a portable freezer cooler in advance. if there is no freezer, it is recommended to clean layer by layer and try to avoid food at room temperature for too long.

4. Take out the cabinet, shelves out, ready to clean

Because there are a lot of things to wash, so I recommend that you use microfiber cleaning cloth, or can be used repeatedly sponge, here I want to highly recommend the scrub daddy home sponge I use!

Its characteristics are: cold water is very hard, can be used to clean stubborn stains. When hot water becomes soft, plasticity is very strong, basically everywhere can be stuffed. At the same time, the round shape is particularly suitable for cleaning cylindrical cups and water bottles. And its unique eyes and mouth, not to be cute, but used to clean spoon and other details parts.
