Before you head out for vacation, throw away expired food and tame that mess in the fridge. Don’t forget to wipe down all the shelves and crisper in the refrigerator too. This will keep your fruit and veggies fresher all summer.
Your fridge may be chill, but that gives it no excuse for dust-clogged coils. Help it out by cleaning the coils this month. Pull your fridge out from the wall, and put that vacuum attachment to good use.
After a year’s worth of cooking, your oven needs some lovin’. Grab a face mask, gloves, and oven cleaner (or water and baking soda) and scrub out the baked-on debris at the bottom of the oven.
Cleaning your oven regularly (even once a year) will keep it running more efficiently.
While you’re waiting for the cleaner to set, wipe down your kitchen appliances too. Your coffee pot, toaster oven, blender, and anything else that sits on your kitchen counter will look much better after a quick spritz.
