NATIONAL CLEAN OUT YOUR REFRIGERATOR DAY

Get together a soap and hot water filled bucket, disinfectant, a sponge, and a garbage bag, and you are ready for National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day!

It is perfect timing for this “special” day as Thanksgiving is coming soon and we will need room for all of the leftovers so it is time to tackle the one job that is dreaded by most but is an important task non 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.  One may be surprised what they find in the back of the shelves that they did not realize was in there.  Things are often pushed back as new food is put in the front and it is forgotten about.

Some suggestions for your refrigeration cleaning 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.

HISTORY

Our research has found that National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day, an “unofficial” national holiday was possibly created by the home economists at Whirlpool Home Appliances in 1999.  It is said that they created the holiday to encourage people to clean out their refrigerator in advance of the upcoming holidays.  At that time, the company even had a toll-free hotline that people could call into for cleaning tips.
