How Creepy Is Your Refrigerator?


What’s inside your refrigerator might be the scariest thing you see this Halloween.


ct. 30 doubles as Haunted Refrigerator Night, and that’s a great time to clean—really clean— your ’fridge. The payoff: A clean refrigerator will run more efficiently than one full of spills, grime and even mildew.

First, unplug the appliance, pull it away from the wall, and use soap, white vinegar and water to scrub the shelves and soak the bins. Dry them thoroughly before replacing them.


To sanitize the appliance, wipe it down—inside and out—with a mixture of water, chlorine bleach, baking soda and borax.


Some more tips:


• Use a vacuum cleaner or soft brush to clean the coils located on the back of the refrigerator once a year.


• Slip your vacuum cleaner hose attachment under the fridge to clean the condenser coils. If it won’t fit, stretch a rubber band around an old sock and attach it to the end of a yardstick. Slide the stick under the refrigerator to clean the condenser coils.


Get the TogetherWeSave.com— Save Energy, Save Money app for smartphones and tablets and see how much money you could pocket by switching from traditional lightbulbs to CFLs or LEDs.


Or use the app to evaluate energy guzzlers in your home. For example,


• Check the gasket (the soft plastic piece that seals the door to the body of the refrigerator) for gaps and improper fit. A trick: Place a dollar bill between the gasket and the door. Close the door and tug on the dollar. If it doesn’t drag as you pull it out, the gasket may be worn. Replace it.
