Cleaning The Refrigerator Naturally With Baking Soda And Lemon
(Lincoln, NE, USA)
Susan shared this tip for cleaning the refrigerator naturally, using lemons and baking soda.
If you are a lemon scent lover, this is a tip to tickle your fancy.
Start out by wicking up any seepage that is at the botton of the fridge with paper towels.
Then get yourself some lemons from the store, slice the lemon in half and sprinkle baking soda on the lemon, scrub it all over in your fridge to clean, on the shelves, in your crisper drawers (resprinkle baking soda on your lemon while you go), etc.
When done, rinse and clean up any residue from cleaning and Voila! It smells wonderful when you are done!
I also used this method on a 20 gallon fishtank that was given to me, since we have hard water in the midwest which tends to buildup. And after a couple of cleans, the fishtank was like new again. Just make sure to rinse thouroughly before adding water.
Lemons and baking soda are non abrasive and work very well for all kinds of cleaning tasks!
Thanks so much for sharing this tip for cleaning the refrigerator Susan.
I've seen similar tips for using a lemon along with salt, instead of baking soda, for cleaning various items in your home too. For example, you can use lemon and salt together as a copper and brass cleaner.
This sounds like a great way to use both baking soda and lemon together, since they both have natural deodorizing properties which make them a natural fit for cleaning your fridge.
