The job that rarely gets done for two reasons. First, everyone is in there so often the refrigerator gets over looked. The second reason is that one item tucked in the back of the refrigerator. That one you don’t know how long it has been there or what it even is.
Let this note inspire you to get rid of all the old condiments before the new grilling season begins. Purging the old before purchasing from Coborns Delivers those BBQ essentials such as barbeque sauce, ketchup, mustards, dressing and etc.
The project will take about forty five minutes. First step is to empty the entire refrigerator, and then give it a good cleaning with warm soapy water. Before putting everything back in the fridge, pull it away from the wall and vacuum the compressor, vent and floor. Then wash the floor and push back into place.
Check every item for freshness tossing the iffy food and placing the items close to expiration in the front to be sure to use them in the next few days. Jot down all tossed items on your Coborns grocery list and you are done!
