Keeping your freezer clean and perishable food safe

Freezers are one of the most important appliances in your home. From storing meat to your favorite tomato puree for future use – you always rely on the freezer. And like any other appliances, in a regular interval, your freezer needs proper cleaning as well. Depending on how frequently you use the freezer and maybe forgetfully spill something – you should clean it every three to four months.

Maximum time people avoid cleaning a freezer as it is a hassle – emptying it and then putting everything back. But if you know a few simple steps, cleaning a freezer will be child’s play. All you need to clean a freezer is – a large cooler or a bucket, ice, distilled white vinegar, hot water, a spray bottle, some microfiber cloths, and an old toothbrush.

First, remove all the food from your freezer and place it into the cooler with ice.  Check if there is any expired frozen food and toss them out—mix an equal portion of vinegar and hot water in your spray bottle to make your cleaning solution. Generously spray the solution inside the freezer and rub the solution away with a dry microfiber cloth. You may have to repeat this to perfectly clean your freezer. For stubborn spills or greasy areas, gently scrub with an old toothbrush dipped in hot water and wipe off any residue using a microfiber cloth. Carefully wipe the whole inside of the freezer with a clean microfiber cloth to make sure there is no liquid left. Plugin the freezer and place your food inside from the cooler.

Take the removable parts like ice trays or freezer bins in your kitchen sink and wash them with warm water and detergent and dry thoroughly before putting it inside. For safety reasons, always remember to unplug your freezer before cleaning. And just to be safe, use a voltage stabilizer to keep your freezer safe.

Knowing the best way to preserve perishable food will not only make it easier for you to store food, but it will also reduce food wastage as well. Always freeze foods in portion sizes so that you won’t have to defrost more than you need. Cool off any food at room temperature before refrigeration and always use dry pot, box, or freezer bags.
