What is that?

Does this ever happen to you?

I just noticed after a short 5 years (yes, 5 years) that there were two pieces of foam packing tape cushioning the glass shelf above the crispers in our fridge. Five years friends. Just noticed them today.

So in the process of getting these sticky buggers out, I upended the glass shelf and discovered to my horror: a disgusting moldy vegetable grunge layer between the crispers and the shelf. Holy terror, I nearly vomited.

Needless to say, that has been all cleaned up and sterilized and sanitized. Phew. I had no idea that there was a layer in between there and wouldn't have cleaned it EVER without accidentally shifting that glass shelf.

Do you ever find a corner or a layer or a hidden little section (or not so hidden, that also happens to me), where you suddenly realize it is slick with dirt or dust and you have never cleaned it before? Please tell me I'm not alone.

You're not alone! Our old fridge had a little drain hole at the back, which always got clogged up with mould (ewwwwwwwwww)

LOL! If I wasn't so tired right now, I'd go and tear my fridge down right now and make sure I don't have the same issue going on (I'm panicked I could!)! You can bet I'll be tackling the fridge cleaning (that I've been putting off for some time now) this weekend! T.

LOL, thanks for the visual.
My house is immaculately clean, so this would never happen to me. ;)
