Nov. 15 is national Clean Your Refrigerator Day.
Although it has been rumored that Clean Your Refrigerator Day was started by the Whirlpool Corporation, the origin of this event is lost in the mists of time.
It’s a great reminder that to function effectively, kitchen appliances should be cleaned out periodically.
Refrigerators are often taken for granted. They keep food cool and prevent it from spoiling, and we only notice them if there’s no room to put anything in, they don’t work, or if they develop an odor. Old food can be lurking in the back, uneaten.
So, don your rubber gloves, fill that bucket with warm water and get cleaning. So what if it's Sunday afternoon? It won’t take long. In fact, a couple of hours will probably do it. The ‘fridge doesn’t even have to be turned off.
You’ll thank yourself later.
