Clean & Deodorize Your Refrigerator Naturally

I have to admit, today’s post wasn’t supposed to be about a homemade cleaner at all. But, as is often the case with me, I got distracted by something and plans changed. 🙂 It’s not really my fault though (never mind, it totally is!) The nice people at MasonJars.com sent me several different caps for mason jars to try and I was so enamored with the spray nozzle cap that I decided a homemade cleaner was in order!

I looked around my house for some inspiration and determined that the thing most in need of a good cleaning was the inside of my refrigerator! OY! Starting with the hamburger I had thawed in the refrigerator that leaked, moving on to the orange juice spill that never got entirely wiped up, and several other messes in between, I had my work cut out for me.

I started with one of my most trusted and effective cleaning ingredients….vinegar. Since I’ve had success with the cleaning power of heated vinegar in both my Tub & Shower Magic and when cleaning my microwave, that’s what I went with for this cleaner recipe.

Chemical-Free Refrigerator Cleaner

Ingredients:

Add two parts hot water and one part vinegar to a glass spray bottle, then add the lemon essential oil.

Spray mixture inside the fridge, let sit for a minute or two, and wipe with a damp cloth.

The hot water and vinegar will not only loosen stuck on food, but will also help to eliminate undesirable odors. The lemon EO helps sanitize and leaves a clean, fresh smell!

By the way, this will work wonderfully in your microwave too. Or you can try THIS safe and simple method from a previous post.

Either way, let the SPRING CLEANING BEGIN! 

For more information on the mason jar caps, go to MasonJars.com. Unfortunately I don’t see the spray nozzles on their website currently, maybe we’ll just have to be patient!
