Cleaning refrigerator

Your refrigerator might be dirtier than a toilet. And here is why:

Upon analyzing swabs from various parts of the fridge, the research team discovered that the dirtiest place with the most bacteria is the refrigerator door.

A recent study by food safety experts at High-Speed Training has revealed that certain parts of the refrigerator are three times dirtier than a toilet seat.

According to the "Express", after examining swabs taken from different parts of the refrigerator, the research team discovered that the refrigerator door is the filthiest place with the most bacteria.

Firstly, a properly functioning refrigerator door is usually the warmest part of a refrigerator, which creates an ideal environment for microbial growth due to higher temperatures where bacteria thrive.

Additionally, refrigerator door compartments are often overlooked during cleaning, leading to the accumulation of harmful bacteria.

Cleaning refrigerator

To minimize the risk of harmful bacteria getting into your refrigerator, it’s recommended to deep clean your kitchen appliance at least three times a year.

The optimal time to do this is when the refrigerator is almost empty, before a big grocery shopping spree.

You should empty your refrigerator, including shelves and drawers and clean the inside with soap and water, as harsh chemicals can remain in the refrigerator and potentially contaminate fresh food once you fill it.

Clean your refrigerator starting from the top and working your way down to avoid contaminating areas you’ve already cleaned. Once everything is clean, be sure to dry all surfaces to remove excess moisture.

Also, It’s better to thoroughly wash all removed shelves and drawers with hot, soapy water to ensure they are fresh and clean.

Finally, It’s necessary to thoroughly clean the exterior of the refrigerator, with extra attention given to high-germ areas like the handle.
