An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so try to clean up spills as they happen.

Wipe the outside every day or two, depending on use.  

Deep clean seasonally-that means emptying it out, and thoroughly cleaning the inside with warm soapy water.  Put hot water and dish soap in a bucket.  When it gets yucky or too cold, change it.

Clean the seals, for this you might need an old toothbrush. 

Remove the meat and vegetable drawers. Soak them in warm sudsy water or fill with warm soapy water-depends on how dirty they are. To keep them clean, put a few paper towels in the bottom when they are clean and dry.

While the drawers are soaking, wipe down the inside of the fridge, the door panels, and the top.

Take a look at all of your condiments and toss them if they're past the "use by" date; wipe them down as you put them back.

To sanitize, use a solution of 1 tablespoon of liquid bleach to 1 gallon of cool water. It should be done only after cleaning with hot, soapy water.

To avoid messes, be sure that you don't put raw meat in the fridge in packaging that could leak fluids. Throw it in a sealable storage bag or container until you get around to cooking it, this is what the US government recommends.

Martha Stewart’s advice for odors is Coffee grounds, charcoal, or kitty litter (I’m sure she means new litter).
