How to Clean out the refrigerator safely- SWEET HAUTE

Chevron-2BDIY-2BFridge-2BShelf-2BLiner-2BTutorial-2BSWEET-2BHAUTEHere is one of the ways I keep my refrigerator clean and organized. I use these amazing DIY Fridge Shelf Liners. These shelf liners keep any debris at bay, making clean up much more time efficient. We have heavy, awkward shaped metal/glass shelf and taking them in and out is taxing. Previously I would wash them in the sink….now the majority of the mess is on the mat liners and I just wipe them down with a mild cleaner. Any debris left on the glass is minimal AND manageable compared to before.

Step 1: Empty everything out of the space.

Step 2: Spray down with Natural Spray Cleaner. See how I made our DIY Natural Spray All Purpose Cleaner here.

Step 3: Wipe away any debris.

Step 4: Organize items and replace them into categories, organized in refrigerator.

Step 5: Leave a open box of Baking Soda inside the refrigerator, use the old box to clean out the sink / drain/ garbage disposal in the process, baking soda is great to clean out the sink’s nooks and crannies!


-Cleaning up spilled messes while they are still wet it a must. Do not wait until it is dry.

-Throw out expired foods weekly/bi-weekly.

-Only keep and purchase foods that your family actually uses, do not keep clutter in the refrigerator.

  • I love the shelf paper/contact paper. That is such a great idea. I love the glass, but it is so hard to keep clean with 3 kids. I could put some shelf paper down and be less crazy about it.
