I decided that I needed to give the freezer a bit of a spring clean (although its high summer here at the moment). Now, cleaning the freezer out has always been a bit of a chore. It takes for ever, the food melts long before I have got all the ice out and I often wreck the thing I have using to bash all the ice out of the freezer with. We aren't discussing the dings and dents that I have managed to put into the sides of the freezer either, by the way...
I decided there must be an easier way than wrestling with huge chunks of ice that don't want to be evicted from the freezer and so I googled "cleaning your freezer". It turns out there are MUCH easier ways to do this than a morning of ice bashing..
Here's what I did...
First - turn off the freezer/fridge! I have never done that before and of all the things that I did - I reckon that made the most difference to getting the ice out. Grab some old towels and place them at the base of the fridge/freezer to catch all that water when the ice starts to melt.
Green-ness: 5/5 for making my meal times more efficient, for not wasting food, and for cutting my power bill down a fair bit!
Frugal-ness: 5/5 for finding ingredients I didn't know I had at no extra cost!
Time cost: Probably about 1/2 an hour from who to go.
Skill level: Bit of googling, bit of jug boiling and a bit of ice bashing!
Fun -ness: Great fun to play with all that ice!Well for us Queenlanders that never see snow, it is!
