The refrigerator is one of the easier things to forget about cleaning. By the time you realize it’s been a while since you last wiped down the fridge, it’s often because an unpleasant smell has already formed.

To take care of crumbs, congealed liquids, and any rancid smells related to a neglected fridge, try using some borax. Just fill a bucket with half a tablespoon of borax and four cups of hot water. Use a rag to wipe down the fridge without filling it with chemicals.
