Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question

  • Weekly clean out of leftovers, check dairy and spot clean (where I can see a spill). Monthly or bi-monthly clean of the shelves and drawers (out and washed). But I am lucky that my husband also does this too.



  • Hope you found some of the answers useful.



  • what did you end up using?



  • What did you do to keep your fridge fresh and clean?



  • get them to clean it up they made it



  • Clean out on bin night, wipe down warm soapy water and bicarbonate in the back in a bowl will help with The odour



  • I give ours a good wipe down once a week.



  • Hot soapy water then wipe it down with vanilla and keep a box of Bi Carb on the top shelf at the back of the fridge.



  • I only do normal clean for our fridge once a week.



  • The vanilla scent lasts a few weeks



  • Vanilla, bicarb and constantly cleaning it



  • There is a Vanilla spray that is safe to use near food.I use plastic containers so everything is stored nicely.Zip lock bags are also good for storing items.Good luck



  • I love this and I,m sorry I really can not help myself to keep your fridge clean keep the kids and hubby out of it… Put anything nice or sweet to eat in the veg by keeper as they will never look in there .. I did say I was sorry… I know. No help…



  • I have shelves for each type of thing, ie dairy, meat (hams etc) veges, fruits etc and they all go in their own areas which make it easier to clean out and easier to keep track of!



  • We clean ours out every week, usually the night prior to our grocery day. We use Vanilla Spray as it keeps it smelling fresh, but also cleans it real good. However if it needs a wipe down due to spills, we will just use a sponge & disinfectant..
