My theory on housework is, if the item doesn’t multiply, smell, catch fire, or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one else cares. Why should you? ~Erma Bombeck
I love Erma and. this quote may make you giggle but honestly, there is nothing more yucky than a refrigerator filled with wilted celery and hairy fruit and it doesn’t really have a particularly bad smell.
Take 5 minutes today and toss out the old moldy stuff to make room for some new crispy green stuff, a really good piece of cheese and maybe some fresh milk.
Why? Because we are mommas and that is just the sort of thing we do from time to time.
If you have a little extra time wipe down a shelf or two, I use vinegar diluted with water but you use whatever you feel is best for you family. And remember, we are super busy moms doing what we can, when we can. So, please don’t go all hog wild and try cleaning the whole fridge. Just clean up the scary parts, the mildly scary parts can wait until next time.
