How to Clean your Fridge Freezer
Want to clean your fridge freezer to perfection?
Switch off the power supply, then remove everything from the fridge and freezer compartment.

- Give the exterior a thorough clean, using a soft cloth.
- Spot-clean the interior. Check user manual.
- Now the spot-cleaning’s done, wipe all over the inside of the fridge with a sponge or cloth and fresh soapy water.
- Shelves and drawers will be much simpler to wash after a decent soak. Use a window cleaning spray on glass shelves. Dry, then replace.
