You probably do a pretty good job keeping your fridge clean (especially if you use my organizing tips), but what about your freezer? It needs love, too. Here's how to clean and organize your freezer so it's never a frustration again.
Once everything is cleared out, check whether you need to get rid of any ice buildup.
To de-ice your freezer, fill a spray bottle with warm water and three tablespoons of salt. Shake it well. Then, spray the ice buildup with the warm salt-water solution. As the ice melts, wipe away the moisture.
Now, fill a bowl with warm water mixed with a drop of dishwashing liquid. Dunk a sponge or rag in the solution and wipe down the interior of the freezer. Don't forget to wipe down the door gaskets, too.
Then, wipe down the freezer with a dry towel to remove any moisture that could freeze when you put all of the food back in.
While you're reloading the freezer remember, stuffing is bad. It's important for air to circulate around the food items to keep them cold enough to stay frozen. If the freezer is too crammed, that can't happen.
If you only use a little out of a bag of frozen food, secure the top with a chip clip or binder clip before putting it back in the freezer. This will help to prevent freezer burn and will prevent the food from spilling out.
