Advice for cleaning refrigerator stains

Anyone know of an effective method for cleaning the stains, marks, and rings left from cans and groceries that accumulate on the inside of your refrigerator or at the bottom of a cooler after a trip or two?

Thanks.

It depends on the type of stain. Rust stains from cans are taken out by Noxrust (oxalic acid) Vegetable stains by Chlorine bleach. Black from aluminum cans rolling around, ? I have not found a non-abrasive for that yet.

It's just plastic both in the cooler and the fridge.........A good polishing compound for fiber glass or auto plastic will do just fine........Great if you can use a small buffer; but a bit of elbow grease will take care of it just fine........God bless......Dennis

It might be a surprise, but good old Walbernize is a great product for cleaning and polishing the plastic inside a refrigerator. (Also works well on fiberglass shower enclosures.) Of course, the refrigerator should be thoroughly wiped/washed with water before using Walbernize or any similar product.

We're with missysanford - Mr. Clean Magic Eraser does it quickly and easily - but after that you might want to think of lining your fridge shelves with that no-slip mesh - to keep them clean.
