Cleaning a Stubborn Stain in the Refrigerator?

I have a problem I can't seem to solve. I have a dry food stain inside my refrigerator next to the crisper drawer. I've tried SOS pads and using dish soap and the stain won't come off. Any suggestions? Could I use bleach?

Thank you.

Don't use bleach. Make a paste of baking soda and soapy water and try rubbing the stain with that. It may have to be repeated a few times. Or try a powdered cleanser like Barkeeper's Friend. If you have Fantastic spray you can try that. Don't spray it all over the fridge, spray it on to a cloth and apply it to the stain.

I don't know why you can't use bleach. I make a mild solution of warm bleach water to wash down the inside of mine and it works wonderful. I add around two tablespoons or so with a squirt of dish deterdent to a gallon of warm water. Do not use ammonia but bleach would be fine or has been for me for years.

We have an old fridge in the garage used for all sorts of storage, extra garden vegetables in the summer, night crawlers in containers, cold beverages and such. I clean it once a year with bleach solution to kill the germs and it works great.

Its because bleach is toxic and cant be used in places that store food such as a fridge because the vapor given off by bleach are absorbed in to the plastic and given off later contaminating your food.
