How to clean out disgusting leftover food containers from the fridge -or- Ridiculous ProcrastinationPosted: April 16, 2011
What you will need:
- disgusting leftover food containers from cleaning out the fridge
- sink/dishwasher and soap
- garbage disposal/ trash can/compost bin
Helpful and recommended:
- the ability to breathe through your mouth instead of your nose
- rubber gloves and scrub brush
- nice smelling candle
- open windows/doors
- baking soda and/or lemon peels
1. Prep work: Learn how to waste food.
2. Clean out the refrigerator and put all of the disgusting containers on the counter by the sink.
3. Plan to clean them out. Sometime soon. If you really like them to be extra mega-mold-disgusting, procrastinate:
Try to wait until both the sink and the dishwasher are empty on a trash collection day, during nap time for little ones, when you are well rested and the laundry is done.
Secretly hope that someone else will clean out the containers for you.
If you have understanding friends coming over, just leave the containers there.
If you are having a family birthday party for your son, put the containers in a trash bag and hide them on the back deck.
4. When you are finished procrastinating, (For example, when a new babysitter is coming over on a nice warm day and you are afraid she will find the trash bag of disgusting moldy food containers on the deck) get out your supplies and your determination.
5. Work quickly! Breathing through only your mouth(to avoid the dreaded odors entering your nose), dump/wash/scrape the stinky moldy food into the disposal/trash/compost container.
6. Wash the containers well with soap and water, and/or run through the dishwasher. (Maybe even twice if there is a lingering odor. It happens.)
7. Wash the sink well, clean the disposal with baking soda and/or put lemon peels down it. Take out the trash or compost container.
8. Continue nice smelling candle and open windows/doors until necessary.
9. You did it! Good for you! Don’t let this happen again! DO NOT repeat!
