Springtime is often a motivation to give your home a thorough cleaning. When scrubbing the kitchen, include a refrigerator make-over on your to-do list. Not only will the fridge be spotless, it will improve the safety and quality of your foods. Scrub down the inside of your refrigerator (including shelves and drawers) using a clean sponge and warm soapy water. Rinse with clean water, then dry with paper towels or a clean cloth. Avoid using cleaners that may pass on taste to food or cause damage to surfaces.
