ALWAYS: Wipe Up Spills as They Happen

This is a maintenance step that shouldn’t take place only after you’ve decided to clean your refrigerator; it should happen all the time. Whether it occurs when you're unpacking groceries or reaching for the milk carton, if a spill happens, wipe it up. The moisture and cold temperature of your refrigerator only make it more difficult to clean up stains or spills the longer they sit, so be diligent and clean it up immediately.
