To remove the shelves, slightly turn them up at the front and slide them upwards. You should do it with both hands to avoid unnecessarily dropping them or accidents.
  • Now that you have made it empty, prepare a mixture of 1:3 ratio of vinegar and water in a spraying bottle or you can dump a towel in that mixture. If you do the first one sprinkle the vinegar all over the spot and every corner along with the parts where drawers and shelves were. And if the latter, you just have to wipe down the fridge with that damp cloth.
  • Clean the drawers and shelves in a similar way.
  • You have to wait a few minutes after sprinkling vinegar if you did not clean the fridge for a long time, otherwise, you can immediately wipe it with a clean cloth. It cleans real quick.
