Follow these steps to keep your fridge fresh and clean…

  3. To make cleaning extra easy, you can line the shelves with plastic wrap.
  4. Use an old toothbrush and toothpaste to clean inside chrome pieces.
  5. To freshen fridge drawers, soak a cotton ball in vanilla and place it in the drawer.
  6. If there is mold, clean it off with a mix of salt and vinegar.

Do you want to save time cleaning? Do you want to learn some brilliant housecleaning tricks using natural products you already have around your house?

We shared 10 helpful cleaning tips over at BISSELL, here’s a taste of what you’ll find…

  1. Use newspaper instead of paper towel when cleaning windows and mirrors. The newspaper works wonders and doesn’t leave streaks. Plus you’ll save money.
     
  2. Use a vacuum extension tool to dust blinds and lampshades and even the inside of drawers.
     
  3. Clean your sponges in the microwave with lemon. Simply wet the sponge with lemon water and then microwave on high for a minute.
     
  4. Put half an apple or an apple core out while cooking to absorb any unpleasant food odors such as fish. Simply cut an apple in half and leave it next to the stove while you cook.

Thanks for the fridge cleaning tips! I am going to check out your tips on natural cleaners, too, because I hope to stop buying commercial cleaning products! (I don’t think they are good for me or my family.)
