Keeping Clean – Spic and Span Refrigerator

Posted by   + Show Post

Did you know that you can line your crisper drawers with tin foil to keep foods fresher and your refrigerator sparkling clean? It's one of the quickest tips for a clean and tidy kitchen.

As always, start with a clean surface. Measure out a piece of tin foil to fit your drawers. Place tin foil to line entire bottom of each drawer.  Replace every week for maximum cleanliness.

You'll have a clean fridge and your veggies will stay super crisp as the aluminum foil adds to the cool environment of your crisper.

Moms, how else do you use tin foil for keeping things clean in your kitchen?

I use water and vinegar for just about all of my cleaning: windows, bathroom tub and sink, dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot, stain remover for laundry (some other ingredients included), and much more.

 Thanks for the great tip, I did not know that!

Oh great tip and I have a box of foil sheets that will work perfectly for this idea.

I line all of my shelves and drawers with press-n-seal saran wrap. If there is a spill I can just pull it off and replace. I put new lining in once a month if it doesn't get replaced before hand. I didn't know that about the foil. My drawers are now going to be lined with that! Thanks for sharing!
