If defrosting a chest type freezer factors into your kitchen cleaning, try this tip. Use a clean mop to swab the hard to reach bottom of the freezer. After all the water has been mopped up, mop the bottom again - but this time with a solution of baking soda and water. This will help keep the freezer smelling fresh.
I love my chest freezer, but was thinking of getting rid of it because it's getting too hard to reach the bottom.
Another good tip is to use a steamer for a quick defrost!
Had a chest freezer until area flooded. Would let the ice defrost and put disposable baby diapers in bottom to sop up water. Then when all of the water was absorbed I would use a new clean mop to do the rest.
