Cleaning the Refrigerator and Freezer

by Penny Keay

This is something everyone dreads but of course it needs to be done periodically.

Now that you have finished the rest of the spring cleaning it is time to concentrate on the other items that need to be cleaned on a routine basis.

Cleaning refrigerators and freezers is a lot of hard work but once you throw out all the outdated foods you soon discover you actually have room for real, fresh foods. And itís just in time for the fresh garden produce. Yum, yum! Fresh Berries and lettuce!

After unloading everything, itís time for a thorough wash down. You can make a simple cleaning solution of water, baking soda and a few drops of Lemon essential oil.

This simple cleaning solution will help to freshen the interior. You can use this recipe and add any citrus oil or citrus blend for your scenting pleasure. Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Lime, or Bergamot all commonly used to deodorize. And remember every essential oil has disinfecting properties to varying degrees.

You can use this to clean the exterior too. Since the above essential oils are excellent at disinfecting you can clean off finger smudges and more! Of course if you want add a drop or two of Four Robbers blend or Pure Cleansing blend.

Other blend choices would be The Cleaner or Citrus Blend, Tea Tree oil has been sited at being effective against MRSA. If MRSA is a concern in your household, be sure to add Tea Tree to your cleaning bucket.
