3. Fast fridge fix. Every week, wipe down the walls and shelves of your refrigerator.You don’t need to empty the whole thing out...that takes too long for our liking. Just grab a sponge with cleaner and give everything a quick wipe. This also gives you a chance to double check anything that looks suspect. Try as we might, we always seem to find a forgotten yogurt, apple or bag of lettuce that needs to be eaten immediately or thrown away.
Speaking of the fridge, try this. Empty out the fruit and veggie drawers, and then place a sheet of waxed paper down before refilling. This will create a barrier between the produce and the bottom of the drawer, helping you stay on top of a clean fridge. Every two weeks or so, replace the paper.
4. Care for wood cutting boards. There isn’t a day that goes by when we do not cut something on our boards. So, we take care of them. First, we use a halved lemon with salt to rub away odors or particles that have gotten stuck. Then, we clean the boards with soap and water; dry well. Take a paper towel moistened with a little vegetable oil and glide it over the boards. This helps prevent them from splitting down the road.
