Cleaning the Refrigerator
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Your refrigerator is one of the most important places to keep clean. Old food and drinks can grow interesting mold if left in there too long. This is not only gross to look at; it can be dangerous, too. If you eat or drink something that has gone bad, it can make you very sick. That is why it is very important to keep your refrigerator clean.
 
2     The best thing to do is keep the daily and weekly cleaning up to date. If you don't let old food or spills stay in the fridge, it won't take you a long time to clean it. Be sure to clean up spills as soon as they happen. Make sure to pull out the drawers if you need to clean under there, too. To keep spills from happening, keep foods and drinks in covered containers.
 
3     Don't keep leftover food too long. One week is the most that any food should be kept in the refrigerator. Some foods cannot be kept that long. Throw food away the minute it starts to look like it isn't any good. Mold can make you very sick and it can ruin other food that is near it, too. If in doubt, throw it out.
