Your fridge is one of the most important appliances in your kitchen. It keeps the majority of our food edible for long periods of time, and it keeps our milk and fruit juices perfectly cold.
If our fridge is messy and unclean, it can lead to a higher risk of food poisoning. An unsatisfied fridge can put you at high risk of food poisoning as well as other health risks.
Finding the time to clean the fridge, and thinking of ways to keep it tidy can be hard. But luckily for you here are 17 nifty tricks to help keep your fridge clean and tidy.
