The best fridge cleaner recipe – all natural ingredients!

Who likes cleaning out their kitchen fridge?  Well, okay, I kind of do, but it’s not so much that I enjoy cleaning my fridge.  It’s more that I appreciate a clean fridge. (Which I did not currently have…) And nothing works better than this fridge cleaner recipe!

I save cleaning out my fridge for the same day that I do grocery shopping.  Even though I know that might seem like an overwhelming task while putting away the groceries, it works well!

I tackle my fridge shelf by shelf.  Growing up, my mom would always pull EVERYTHING out of the fridge, give it all a good clean, and then sort as she put things back.  I don’t like doing it this way though because sometimes life catches me off guard and I don’t want to get pulled away with all my cold goods out on the counter.

For today’s clean out of the fridge, I decided to try a new fridge cleaner recipe…

 We’ve been working at eliminating all unnecessary chemicals from our home.  (Bleach wipes still make the odd appearance when the tummy flu comes around or when the cat decides to grace us with her last consumed entree…)

Jillee’s fridge cleaner and deodorizer

I found this great sounding recipe at One Good Thing By Jillee.  You can clean and deodorize your fridge with just 3 ingredients: water, white vinegar, and lemon essential oil.  I happened to have all 3 things on hand!  I also found an empty spray bottle (Wonders will never cease!)  Not as nice as the one Jillee had, I will definitely be checking out the Mason Jar company.

I followed Jillee’s instructions for mixing and cleaning and it worked really really well!  I will definitely be using this recipe for my fridge cleaning again.  My fridge is sparkling and lacks any odours except for the slight sweet scent of lemon.  What more could a girl ask for!  

Therefore, I highly recommend giving this recipe for fridge cleaner and deodorizer a try!  It’ll be my go to from now on.  To give this a try – check out Jillee’s recipe on her website. 

And now I get to start the week with a fridge that has no old leftover, nothing expired, and it’s clean and organized.  So, what’s the meal plan for the week?  Stay tuned for my upcoming post on what we will be eating this week.

  • Wow, you clean it every week? That’s admirable! I use a mix of vinegar and water for a lot of things, including cleaning fruit and veggies.

      Hey Michelle,

      I do clean my fridge weekly. But there are plenty of other things that don’t get cleaned that often! I love vinegar and water too and am now just starting to learn about using essential oils as well.

  • Deborah says:

    I use a lot of natural cleaners too. Vinegar is at the top of the list, along with baking soda. I love lemon oil..it makes a great air freshener too. I put drops in the garbage bin, on cotton balls in my pantry and on a fake plant near my front door!

    I spray a mixture of lemon, mint, and patchouli everywhere in my kitchen. I’ve had pantry moths, once. Never again!

    • Nadine says:

      Oh man! We had moths get into our flour in our old apartment and it was disgusting and disastrous! Your combination sounds good! I’m not a huge fan of patchouli, but one of my good girlfriends is! I’ll have to pass your recipe along to her.

  • Isn't #lettuce cool the way that it grows up and out in a spiral fashion!?! This is our first time growing #iceberg lettuce - it's my hubby's favourite! We've had a weird year with growing lettuces, this one is enjoying the whole stretch of garden to itself because none of the other seeds have sprouted, even from the second seeding! I'm going to be potting some to start and transplant! I NEED LETTUCE (I ❤ salad). How's your lettuce doing this year? Got any #tips or #tricks for me?
  • One of the best things about #homeschooling is the chance for a deep and strong relationship between siblings that would otherwise have no contact with each other!! They're still siblings, they are great together most of the time but sometimes they drive each other crazy and push each other's buttons. But if they didn't have all the time together that they do I don't think I'd get near as many sweet moments like this, curled up on the couch together sharing a moment 💕 What heart melting moments have you had recently?
  • I had never seen a #potato flower before! Growing a garden is so much fun. I can't believe how much I've learned this year and how something can grow from almost nothing. Our #Russianblue potatoes are doing so well - I can't wait to dig them up at the end of the season and see if the beauty below the ground will be as rewarding as it's been above!  Anyone else got potatoes in the garden? What variety did you pick?

  • Our beautiful #paintedlady butterflies are emerging!!! We have 3 so far. This is our fourth year observing their amazing #metamorphosis and it never grows old. Izzy loves their emergence and the excitement of releasing them. This is the first year Mickey Blue has paid any attention to them. He is fascinated by their wings and flapping as they dry them. A few more days and they'll be heading out into the wide open skies (provided the rain ever stops.....)
