It’s the middle of winter, and you may be going a little stir-crazy. So let me ask you a question: How long has it been since you gave your fridge a good deep-clean?
I’m not talking about just the inside but the outside too—including the dusty nether-regions behind and underneath your fridge. If you’re like me, you rarely even think about cleaning your refrigerator coils, let alone actually attempt it.
