In a recent article I was telling you how dish racks are the perfect mold collectors, but I want to add another item on this list: the refrigerator. Yes, opening the fridge door allows the temperature to rise inside, creating a perfect environment for mold growth. Well, mold loves to grow on the fridge gasket due to the tight and moist area.
It seems that fridge is not such a safe place for storing food, but we need it and we have to maintain it clean and disinfected. Anyhow, if mold attacked your fridge and the food inside, the first thing is to get rid of the moldy food, then to remove mildew inside of your fridge. How? Apply the next natural cleaning solution and mold inside of your fridge will be just a bad and cold memory.
- hydrogen peroxide or vinegar
- soft cloth or toothbrush
How to use:
Just pour hydrogen peroxide or vinegar in a sprayer (both ingredients are famous for their mold removing properties), and spray over the gasket. Now, wipe that black mold with a cloth. Use a toothbrush to remove the inaccessible areas.
The same solution can be used for any mold trace inside the refrigerator. Spray over the moldy area, let it act for a few minutes, then remove it with a clean cloth.
At the end, rinse everything with clean water. If you followed the above steps properly, your fridge is now mold-free and your food is safe.Image Credits: Youtube
