It is an easy, and quick job if you know the trick my mother taught me. I'll share so you can know too.
|BEFORE - See how the frost is over an inch thick, YIKES!|
|I emptied the freezer after setting two pots of water on to boil.|
|When the water was at a good rolling boil . . .|
|I set the pan in the bottom of the freezer and closed the lid. After about 10 minutes I removed the first pan and put the larger pan in, and closed the lid.|
|After just twenty minutes of steam all the frost slides off with a plastic spatula.|
|Using gloves and a dishpan I gathered up all the frosty ice.|
|Then I wiped down the sides and sopped up the water, wringing it into the dishpan. Dry with a fresh towel.|
After just 35 minutes work the freezer is ready to be restocked.
BONUS: How to clean pots (and other things) with hard water mineral residue.
|When you have a pan (or a glass dish) that looks like this . . . don't scrub and scratch!|
|Use VINEGAR (either kind works) A couple of tablespoonfuls and a green (or white) scrubby rubbed gently and all the gunk is gone!|
|See? Gleaming and clean.|
