I have done a similar thing. I have put newspaper on top of mine. When the top layer gets dusty, I remove it and then there is a clean layer. My fridge was tall, so no one could see the newspaper. Works for me!
c t, well you knocked the wind out of my sails. Sorry for not thinking green. Your towel idea makes good sense. Thanks.
The frig vents from the bottom, around the bottom, and a lot in the back. Covering the top will have nothing to do with it.
I place a large towel that covers the top, after I wash the thing. It can be washed and reused and I don't have to use plastic wrap that is not biodegradable.
I don't think this is safe as your fridge needs to have room to breathe. That is why you don't have a fridge in an exact fit space, if you know what I mean. You need to have air around your fridge & I am not sure, but I would think it would make your fridge work harder thus shortening the life of your appliance.
