  • Empty all food, jars, condiments and other ingredients  from inside the refrigerator unit and toss anything past its prime or expiration date into a trash bag.
  • Recycle glass and plastic containers.
  • Remove drawers, place in the sink and scrub with sponge, warm water, and liquid dish soap. Leave them in dish-rack to air-dry.
  • With warm water, dishwasher detergent and a clean sponge, wash down interior walls, each shelf, all shelf seams and rubber door seals. Use an old toothbrush to dislodge grime and stubborn stains.
  • Dry the interior with a  clean dishcloth.
  • Plug the refrigerator back in and return the drawers inside.
  • As you are placing the food back in, wipe down all jars and bottles.
  • Add a fresh box of baking soda to contain odors.
  • Clean the exterior of the refrigerator.
