It’s not as scary as it may seem. Yes, I agree, the freezer can be the messiest place, but experts are sure that the freezer is easy to organize.
Here are several tricks that will help you.
First of all, you need to empty your freezer completely. You need to unplug your fridge for half an hour. In half an hour you will need a sponge and warm water to clean the inside of the freezer and get rid of stains and spots.
You may also prepare a mixture of water and baking soda. It will help to get rid of unpleasant odors. Experts also recommend leaving some free space in front for air circulation.
When the freezer is dry, it’s high time to put everything back. Make sure that all of the containers and packages are clean. The best containers for the freezer are special glass containers with airtight top. You may also use Ziploc bags, but make sure they are safe to be used in the freezer.
The next things you need to think about are portions. Usually we do not cook the entire piece of meat. Divide all the food into portions, wrap every portion in plastic bag or in foil and then put them in a container.
Together with the fresh food we do have in the freezer and some that are not so fresh, and when the time passes we don’t know exactly what piece should be used first. Experts say that it is important to write down the date when the food was put in the freezer.
Enjoy your clean and organized freezer every day.
