Well, the other day I posted that I was going to clean out my refrigerator, but I was sidetracked. Today, Mr. Refrigerator was calling me. I had no excuses left to give, so I rolled up my sleeves and opened the door.Yikes.
This had not been done in quite a while. I will not be posting a before picture, I couldn't bring myself take one. I would be too embarrassed for anyone to see the horror of what was behind that door before the cleaning. We have an older fridge it's not a side by side. My plan of action is always to start at the top and work my way down. I took out all the food on the top shelf, throwing out the expired or otherwise bad food. Then I removed the shelf, and washed it with hot soapy water. I replace the shelf then move down to the next. I tried a tip I had read on another blog to use press and seal paper on your shelves, so if you have a spill you just peel up the paper and remove it. This would be a great tip if the press and seal would stick to my glass shelves. It kept peeling up around the edges and curling. I will probably just remove it in a couple days. It took some time since my little sidekick was "helping". I'm not sure when he snatched it, but a while after I was finished with the fridge I walked into our son's room to find a bag of shredded cheese laying on his floor. (This kid loves cheese!) The whole time I was cleaning I kept telling myself, if you would just do this more often it wouldn't be so bad. I'm glad to have finished. This is what it looks like now.
So I say, "Until next time Mr. Refrigerator!"
Do you have a chore you put off until you just can't any more?
