Fridge Repair

Welcome back everyone to Jose and Chris’ Best Practices! Today, it’s all about refrigerators! One of the most important appliances in your home, housing everyone’s favorite snacks and more! Let’s go over all the best practices to make sure you and your fridge stays cool.

Setting the Right Temperature

Maintaining the ideal temperature in your refrigerator is essential for keeping your food fresh and safe to eat. We recommend setting your fridge to a chilly 37 degrees Fahrenheit, while the freezer should be kept at a frosty 0 degrees Fahrenheit. These temperatures may seem like overkill, but trust us – your groceries will thank you for it.

Organizing Your Refrigerator

We’ve all been guilty of cramming our refrigerators to the brim with groceries, only to forget about that head of lettuce buried beneath a pile of condiments. Fear not, for we have have a foolproof solution: the golden rule of refrigerator organization. Simply put, keep like items together – fruits with fruits, vegetables with vegetables, and so on. Not only will this make it easier to find what you’re looking for, but it will also help prevent food waste and spoilage.

Banishing Odors with Baking Soda

Ah, but what about those pesky odors that seem to linger in your refrigerator no matter how many times you clean it? Fear not, dear reader, for we’ve got a simple yet effective solution: baking soda. Yes, you heard right – good old-fashioned baking soda is the secret weapon in the battle against refrigerator odors. Simply place an open box of baking soda on one of the shelves, and let its odor-absorbing magic work wonders on your fridge. Say goodbye to funky smells and hello to fresh, clean air.

Regular Cleaning Routine

Of course, no discussion of refrigerator maintenance would be complete without addressing the importance of cleanliness. Just like any other appliance, your refrigerator requires regular cleaning to keep it running smoothly and efficiently. We recommend a monthly deep clean, which includes removing all the shelves and drawers, wiping down the interior with a mixture of hot water and mild detergent, and vacuuming the condenser coils to remove dust and debris.
