Clearing Out Your Fridge, Pantry and Freezer Before You Move House

moving tips

Now that you’re finally ready to make your move, have you already cleared your fridge? Follow this guide for the best moving tips on clearing out the fridge!

Check your schedule. Defrosting is ideally done overnight for thorough cleaning and thawing. If you have a frost-free fridge, it will only take a couple of hours for your fridge to drain.

Turn off your refrigerator’s power and unplug. Empty all the food items inside your fridge and check which of these you can still save. You can throw what can’t and move on.

Remove all detachable shelves in your fridge. Leave towels surrounding your refrigerator and secure the area from puddles. In the morning, remove the water from the water collecting tray.

Dip a clean washcloth in a mixture of water and mild soap. Use this to wipe down the entire fridge and detachable trays. Repeat this step with another clean washcloth dipped in cold water.

Wipe down the fridge and trays with a dry cloth and keep the fridge door open for at least 1 hour to allow thorough drying. Once everything is completely dry, you can now return the detachable shelves back into the fridge.

Set aside something for breakfast because when moving-day finally rolls around, you’ll want to make sure that you’re well rested and well fed for the big day.
