Bacteria That Might Be Lurking In Your Refrigerator

Description:

Food poisoning is a very real risk if spillages, mold and bacteria aren’t quickly cleaned away when found in your refrigerator. It can be tempting to minimize cleaning of the fridge, especially when it’s chock full of food and getting to all the nooks and crannies, means taking everything out and having to put it all back in again. Minimal fridge cleaning is perfectly fine, provided it’s clean enough and food is stored hygienically inside, but if you see spillages or food items that have fallen from the shelves or are smeared over the sides, then they should be cleaned up as soon as possible. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Refrigerator

  • Food poisoning is a very real risk if spillages,
    mold and bacteria arent quickly cleaned away
    when found in your refrigerator. It can be
    tempting to minimize cleaning of the fridge,
    especially when its chock full of food and
    getting to all the nooks and crannies, means
    taking everything out and having to put it all
    back in again. Minimal fridge cleaning is
    perfectly fine, provided its clean enough and
    food is stored hygienically inside, but if you
    see spillages or food items that have fallen from
    the shelves or are smeared over the sides, then
    they should be cleaned up as soon as possible.

  • Most refrigerators will come with a cleaning
    manual that you can refer to, and this will give
    you the best results, but there are also a few
    simple cleaning tips that you can follow, should
    you not have a manual
  • Wipe up spills as soon as they happen
  • This is particularly important in the case of
    meat juices, to avoid cross contamination. If
    youre defrosting meat in your refrigerator, you
    should do so on the lowest shelf of the fridge
    and ensure that the meat is in a spill proof
    container.

  • Clean the inside of your fridge without chemicals
  • A clean sponge and some warm, soapy water should
    be perfectly sufficient for cleaning the interior
    of a fridge try to avoid using harsh chemicals
    as they can taint any food being stored inside.
  • Dont forget to clean the handle
  • This part of the fridge can quickly become
    covered in dirt, grease and bacteria,
    particularly if little hands have access to it!
    Clean it regularly with soapy water to prevent
    grime and dangerous germs from breeding there.

  • Get rid of nasty whiffs
  • You can eliminate odours in your fridge by
    placing an open box of baking soda right at the
    back, and then simply change it once every three
    weeks or so.
  • Dont block the front grill
  • Try to keep the front grill dust free so that air
    can flow freely to the condenser, this will give
    you the best cooling and efficiency results. You
    can also clean the condenser coils with a vacuum
    or small brush, but remember to unplug it when
    you do so.

  • Have regular clear outs of your refrigerator
  • Looking in your fridge at least once a week to
    see if any food items are past their use by date
    or spoiling, is a great way of preventing
    bacteria and keeping your fridge smelling fresh.
  • For the best results, try to clean your fridge
    thoroughly at least once a month, and clean up
    spillages as soon as they occur. A clean and
    organised fridge is better for your health, and
    youll be able to find food items with greater
    ease, too!
