How do I defrost my fridge?

Defrosting a Manual Freezer

When kitchen cleaning, don't forget to defrost your freezer! Place a pan of hot water inside a manual freezer to speed defrosting. Soak up water with an old bath towel. Wipe with a baking soda and water solution to help deodorize. After defrosting, you can wipe the inside of the freezer compartment with a cloth dampened with glycerin. When it is time to defrost again, the chunks of ice will drop right off.

Use a hair dryer on high heat. Aim it at the ice from a safe distance so you dont get electrocuted. It really speeds up the whole messy job!!!
