Once you have checked
your freezer seal to make sure it is working correctly,
you will want to clean the seal to prevent problems down the
line. Doing quick maintenance to the seal will ensure you
do not need to replace your seal as often, if ever!
There are two cleaning
solutions you can use to clean the seal. The first is a simple
mixture of baking soda and warm water. This one can be used
on seals that are fairly clean already. The second is a tougher
cleaner, using water and bleach. Or you can use the tougher
one first, then follow up later with the first one.
To clean the seal,
use an old toothbrush to gently scrub. You don't want to be
too hard and break or damage the seal. Very gently pull the
seal out so that you can clean the dirt and grime out of the
seal's folds. Wipe dry with a clean cloth.
