Cleaning the fridge can be such a pain. Not anymore! Solve your fridge problems with this awesome product called Fridge Coaster...
I first connected with the Fridge Coaster team on Twitter, and they sent me a message almost right away about sending their product to try out. Not only is this totally rad, but interacting with them was easy and I received the Fridge Coasters very quickly.
I give you this background information about how this post came to fruition, because not only is the product really cool (as you'll see in the photos below) but the customer service is excellent. All around, Fridge Coaster is fantastic!
When ordering, you choose according to what brand and type of fridge you have and then pick your color and pattern. I have a 2-door Frigidaire black fridge freezer combo in which the freezer is on top.
This is how the Fridge Coaster looks out of the box - really cool and love the string tying them together. As you can see, I chose the blue chevron pattern.
When taken out of the packaging, these are the different sizes and shapes you get to accommodate your fridge's various storage areas. There are two of each, and multiple perforations so you can customize them.
Here's a photo of what my fridge looked like before. As you can see, it's organized and you caught me on a day that we had tons of leftovers...yum!
Here's a before picture of the refrigerator door.
The first place I decided to start was the smallest storage area, and that is the tiny shelf on the fridge door where I keep the butter and minced garlic.
I took all of the contents off of the shelf and wiped it clean. Once it dried, I found the Fridge Coaster that fit it the best, tore it along the perforations to get the right size and put it on the shelf.
Then I put the butter and minced garlic back and voila! It looks so neat and is functional at the same time. Alright, let's keep going!
The next space I conquered was the solid part of the second wire shelf in the refrigerator. This is what it looked like before. Mmmmm those leftovers look good - baked chicken with vegetables and cous cous!
I took the contents off of the shelf and wiped it down. Then I found the appropriate Fridge Coaster and put it on it, as you can see in the below photo.
Lastly, I put the containers of leftovers back on the shelf and presto! Doesn't that look gorgeous?!
Next, I tackled the deli drawer. This is what it looked like before.
I took everything out of the drawer and cleaned it. Once it dried, I found the appropriate Fridge Coaster, tore it along the perforations to fit and put it in. Then I put the cheeses and meats back in, and this is what it looks like now.
I did the same thing for the veggie drawer which is shown in the below picture. Now cleaning out this drawer doesn't have to be such an ordeal. I can take out the contents, brush off the Fridge Coaster or wipe it down and put it back. No need to take out the whole drawer and do all that scrubbing. One of my fridge problems solved!
The next space I decided to "coasterize" was the bottom shelf. Here's what it looked like before.
I had to throw this in here too. My organizing projects would be nothing without the help of my assistant, Brisket the Pug! She gave everything in there the sniff test, and it all checked out so we were clear to move on.
I removed all of the contents, wiped the whole shelf clean, let it dry and put in the appropriate Fridge Coasters. This is what it looked like before I put all of the stuff back in. I just love that blue chevron pattern!
Then I put back all of the items that were on the shelf, and this is what it looks like now.
Brisket checked back in after the bottom shelf was done and gave me the thumbs (or paws) up!
Lastly, I conquered the fridge door. This is what it looked like before.
I took everything off of the door and wiped down all of the shelves. I also took this opportunity to throw anything away that had expired and regroup some items.
Then I put in the Fridge Coasters that fit and put everything back according to category and size. This is what it looked like as I was refilling the shelves.
Here's a close up of the fridge door's top shelf.
Here's the entire door afterwards. Beautiful!
So to recap - here's my Frigidaire fridge before...
...and here's the fridge after! In the words of my husband, "The fridge looks pretty." Thank you Fridge Coaster!
