The weekend is nearly here, and what better way to kick it off than defrosting your freezer?
If you own a manual defrost freezer it is essential that you defrost your freezer at least once a year, or when there is more than one fourth of an inch of ice in a large area. This is important as built up ice can be a waste of valuable space in your freezer along with making freezing of food less efficient.
Here is a 10-step breakdown of exactly what you need to do to most efficiently and quickly defrost your freezer:
Turn off freezer
Empty freezer – Throw out products that you will not use in the future. And place the rest in freezer bags
Remove shelves, trays and drawers where possible – Take the time to wipe these down
Prevent puddles by putting newspapers at the base of the freezer
Wait for the ice in the freezer to melt. To speed up the process remove some of the loose pieces of ice with a hot cloth
When the freezer has completely melted mop up any water
Clean freezer use this time to clean out and dirt that might have built up since the last time you’ve cleaned it
