This is something on my to do list today. I have the bottom tray soaking in some bleech. I think i do this chore at least once a month, because it seems something always leaks onto the tray or gets spilled and if you dont clean it up relatively fast it will start to smell FUNKY. and then all your food will start to taste FUNKY. lol.

I do it once in 10 days. I clean out my fridge and restock too. I probably have OCD, but the moment something spills, I clean the fridge out totally! I don't like to leave any spill even if it doesn't smell. But that's me! I can't help it! I've been known to get up in the middle of the night to clean a spill that I was lazy to clean earlier that day!

It was nectarines (those little oranges) and they were blue. not orange but blue..lol and my tray in the fridge needs to be cleaned also but never get around to doing it.

lol! that is nasty! I hate it when my food changes colors in the fridge. I have a few of those oranges in my fridge, but they are still orange for now. heeh I had a funky smell emitting from there a few months ago and i couldnt figure out what it was.. I think an apple started to rott, and the juices flowed out onto the tray, So when i cleaned it the smell went away, but P,U it was nasty. :P

It is true that we should atleast do a refrigerator cleaning job once in two weeks. Otherwise when we open the fridge it would smell bad. I used to clean my fridge every Sunday in the early morning. I would switch off the fridge, defreeze it and clean all the trays and the freezer.

Mine is frost free so i dont have to worry about the dethawing part. Thank goodness. I hate that smelly frost build up that some freezers get. How many people are in your family ? Maybe that is something to take into consideration on how often you clean your fridge. There is only two people in our family so it doesn't get too messy that fast. not every two weeks. Once a month is usually sufficiant for us :)

Hi. Sissygirl. I agree with you. I usually try to keep my refrigerator clean every month. I also tend to throw out foods that are not good anymore. I also throw out any cartons or bottles that are almost empty. This will give me more space so that I can put more new food into this same space. I cleaned my fridge out this month. I enjoy doing it when I can. I don't it like when my refrigerator gets nasty inside. I like for it to smell fresh and look clean.
