Clean Fridge And Freezer Interior With Peroxide

Vote for this contest contender!

For years I've used baking soda to clean inside my refrigerator and freezer. I've found something I think I like better. Peroxide.

Baking soda does a very good job of cleaning the fridge and leaves it odorless. But, there's always the residue to wipe away.


I keep a very small spray bottle of peroxide at the sink. I spray the faucet and handles with it as they can grow mold due to constant moisture.

Today, I got the bright (?) idea of using peroxide to clean my freezer. A few squirts from my little bottle and a quick wipe and I'm done. No residue to wipe away. I like.

3%, 10 volume, $1.00 qt. at Dollar tree

Oh, I also like the 3 pack of little travel bottles from Dollar Tree. Two are flip top and one is a spray bottle as shown here.

Come to think of it, it might be better than soda in another way. Soda is abrasive. I guess if you rubbed enough you would eventually dull the plastic interior. Peroxide wouldn't do that.

Peroxide needs to be in a dark container. Cover it with foil or duct tape. It reacts with light and ceases being peroxide.


I do have spray bottles of peroxide under every sink. I use it frequently, but had not thought of my fridge or freezer. Thanks.

You're right, light and heat and any contaminant will cause peroxide to degrade. I go through these 2 oz bottles so quickly, it hardly matters.

I do keep the brown quart 'refill' bottle in the fridge.

Great idea. I never thought of using Peroxide for cleaning the refrigerator but I can see that it would be a good product for that purpose. I will certainly try it.

I keep some in a spray bottle all the time for cleaning spots on the carpet. I just spray it on and let it sit for about 15 minutes and then wipe it up. It removes the spot and does not harm the carpet.
