Here is my submission.  Our fridge drainer plug is always getting bunged up and then the bottom of the fridge fills with water - yuck.

I used homemade vinegar cleaner.  The vinegar is from kombucha and has had citrus peels steeped in it. I then use 1 part vinegar to 10 parts water.

The waste from the fridge was minimal which I'm happy about. It all went in the food waste bin.

I'm pretty ashamed of my before. Has lots of dirt and peels and leaves in there (I usually keep everything from my veg and try use what I can with regards to leaves etc. Anyway they all got swept out and put in a paper bag ready to go in the compost). I mostly used a dish brush and a biodegradable vegan dish block to wash the shelves which I can remove and wash in the sink. I used diluted citric acid spray and a damp cloth as well as a small brush for cleaning corners.

The waste went into the compost after finishing everything and the water I used for rinsing the shelves went on growies. I found a bottle of medicine from one of my kids that had expired so that went in the waste. Anything I can reuse I kept and anything else went in the recycling. Our city takes all plastic (though I think they burn a lot of it for heat generation...they say it is recycling. I try to avoid plastic as much as I can but here in Japan it is terrible. Even worse since covid19. No bulk stores in my city either).

(Think I might be able to finish my nest sand badge by the end of the week)

if you think brussel sprouts are yummy, you should try any other food. And this tiny ad:
