There’s nothing that grosses me out quite like a disgusting fridge. Between crumbs, spills, and everything in between, it doesn’t take long for the fridge to become disgusting. Thankfully, one clean freak shared a quick, cheap, and effective hack for keeping your fridge as clean and tidy as possible.

Facebook group Timelessnchic shared the following clever tip:

Cleaning my fridge today, and wanted to share an idea I ran across a couple years ago. I buy cheap placemats from the dollar store and put them on the shelves. I also cut them and put them in the drawers. Makes life so much easier if you have a spill or a sticky bottom jar! You can simple wipe off the placemat, or replace it. Okay, that’s all folks! Enjoy the day!

How smart is that? Instead of trying to scrub a mess off of refrigerator glass and plastic, all you’ll need to do is quickly wipe down a plastic or vinyl placemat. Super easy, right?

And remember, there are also lots of great hacks for keeping your fridge neat and organized, instead of just clean!

One of my favorites is this “Eat Me First” basket where you group together foods that are at risk of going bad, thus encouraging you to eat them quickly and hopefully reduce food waste.

Keeping your home clean and organized can be tough, especially if you have multiple people in your household and find yourself consistently busy. However, small yet impactful tips like these ones will hopefully make life just a little bit easier for you. I’ll definitely be buying placemats this weekend for our fridge!
