Cleaning your refrigerator will not only help the compressor work efficiently, but it will also help you in saving electricity, and of course, imagine how much you can save on your electricity bills annually.

4. Put Them Back
Now, you have clean food compartments and other clean spaces that are in the refrigerators. Looks nice, right? Don’t forget to place the removable parts back in their original places.

Fruits in the basket. Milk and eggs in the try. Frozen foods in the freezer. Water bottles on the stand. And, you are done!
