When Was the Last Time You Cleaned Out Your Freezer?

Ideally, a freezer should be thoroughly cleaned twice a year but it’s easy to overlook the freezer when doing household chores. By the time you wonder when the last time you cleaned your freezer was, you may think you are in for an all-day chore. However, there are ways to clean your freezer that will not eat up an entire day, and cleaning the freezer is beneficial to the food you freeze. A clean freezer smells better and does not transfer odors into items that absorb such smells easily, like ice creams and ice cubes. Additionally, if you have an older freezer model in which ice can actually build up in the freezer compartment, a clean freezer runs better and more efficiently, costing you less each month on the electricity to run it.
