To deep clean your refrigerator, follow these steps:
- Remove all contents from the refrigerator and freezer and unplug the appliance
Remove storage shelves and bins and wash with a mild cleanser, warm water and a sponge
Using a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild detergent or other non-abrasive cleaner with warm water, hand wash interior surfaces and removable parts, including fridge walls, the door and permanent shelves
Place the dried removable parts back inside the fridge and plug in the appliance
The process for cleaning the exterior of your French door refrigerator may depend on the finish of your appliance. Always refer to your owner’s manual for precise cleaning instructions. To clean a fridge with a painted surface, you can typically wash the exterior enamel surfaces and gaskets with warm water and mild soap or detergent.
If you have a traditional stainless steel refrigerator without a fingerprint resistant coating, you can use a solution like affresh® Stainless Steel Cleaning Spray* with a clean microfiber cloth to help clean and care for the stainless steel surfaces. To clean stainless steel or black stainless steel with fingerprint resistant exteriors by hand, you can use a soft, nonabrasive cloth and a mixture of dish soap and warm water to wipe the surface of your appliance in the direction of the grain.
