About Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day

When is Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day? This holiday is always observed on November 15

Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day is today,a November 15 holiday. What’s that in the back of the fridge!? You don’t recognize it as it is all dried out and shriveled. You don’t want to find out. Don’t open it…… the odor may overwhelm you!!! Hold your breath, scrunch your nose if you must, and proceed to the task.

Everything in your refrigerator was once a fresh, healthy food, ready for your consumption. It may have been a tasty leftover, intended for later enjoyment. Unfortunately, over the course of weeks or more, things get pushed to the back of the refrigerator and slowly transform into something impossible to identify.

We’ve all run across items in the refrigerator that once were tasty food, But, now, they are some dried out, mold-covered nasty, that you remove and dispose of at arm’s length.

Who wins the prize for the worst refrigerator surprise? Most often, it’s workplace refrigerators.

Use this day to clean out your refrigerator, top to bottom. When it comes to food safety, we fall back to the old saying ” When in doubt, throw it out!”

History and Origin of Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day

We found references suggesting that Whirlpool Home Appliances was promoting Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day. However, we went to their website and performed a search of it. They make no mention of this day. 

Common speculation is that this day was created just in advance of Thanksgiving, to allow room for holiday leftovers.
