How to Clean a Refrigerator

Use Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes daily to clean commonly touched areas like the door handle, as well as to wipe up small spills in the fridge.

Search the refrigerator for any expired items and toss them. You might be surprised by what is hiding out in the back of the bottom drawer. Afterwards, spray down with Clorox® Anywhere® Hard Surface™ Daily Sanitizing Spray, using it as directed.

Wipe doors, including edges, and top of the refrigerator with Clorox® Clean-Up® Cleaner with Bleach.
