Next, let the time take over from there. Open the freezer doors and let it be like that for as long as the ice melts.

It can take as long as 24 hours or sometimes less, depending on the amount of frosting present in the freezer.


To speed up this process, you can use a fan that blows warm air. It will melt the ice faster and saves you many hours.

When you have waited for enough time, and the ice has melted, it’s time you move to the next step.

Step 4: Use Your Solution

To make the special cleaning solution, take warm water and mild soap in it. Have a sponge or soft cloth by your side and use it to apply this solution and clean the inside of the freezer.

Make sure you reach all the ends of the freezer and thoroughly clean the stains on the walls of the freezer if any.

Follow it with a dry cloth or towel that will soak up the remaining moisture from the solution. It is to ensure that the liquid from the solution doesn’t freeze on the walls of your freezer.
