Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day

When : Always November 15th

Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day is today.

What's that in the back of the refrigerator!? I don't want to find out. Don't open it...... the odor may overwhelm you!!! Hold your breath, scrunch your nose if you must, and get to the task.

Everything in your refrigerator was once a fresh, healthy food, ready for your consumption. It may have been a tasty leftover, intended for later enjoyment. Unfortunately, over the course of weeks or more, things get pushed to the back of the refrigerator and slowly transform into something impossible to identify.

We've all run across items in the refrigerator that once were tasty food, But, now, they are some dried out, mold covered nasty, that you remove and dispose of at arms length.

Who wins the prize for the worst refrigerator surprises? Most often, it's workplace refrigerators.

Use this day to clean out your refrigerator, top to bottom. When it comes to food safety, we fall back to the old saying " When in doubt, throw it out!"

Throw stuff away every 3 to 4 weeks. Actually clean it every few months.

 Most of the too-old stuff gets tossed on trash day, but I don't always remember to do that, so usually once a week, sometimes it goes 2 wks.

As for a clear everything out and clean it, rarely. I just wipe up spills as they happen.

Stuff don't stay in the fridge that long to spoil. I will clean something up write away if it spills but a complete cleaning of the fridge and drawers is like every few months.

We have 8 people in our house so most of the stuff gets eaten.

Every now and then I will find some condiment that expired many years ago though. Most recent one was thousand island dressing. Who the hell buys thousand island dressing anyway?

I throw things out as I come across them....    I give it a good cleaning about once per month.
