I want to share a tip for cleaning the top of the fridge. I found that it is a place that most of us tend overlook or can't reach the back of the top of the fridge because it's under a cupboard. I tried putting a couple of strips of saran wrap from one side to the other starting at the back and when I need to clean the top of the fridge, I can just peel off the wrap and put on new wrap. Works awesome!!!!
