I mean stripping the whole thing and washing it? I did it yesterday for the first time wouldn't like to say how long.

Probably as often as my over which was, well ..........Christmas maybe.

I do tidy it up a bit every week before the big shop gets put away though.

goodness what a question. As rarely as I can get away with of course.
It needs doing at the moment - weve been in our flat for 6 weeks.

Every week. The day the bins get emptied, it's just easier to chuck the bad stuff out then. Or if I've just done a huge shop and need to pack the fridge with loads of food.

I do it once a week

SSSandy Mon 29-May-06 14:06:23

better add that I almost never clean out my kitchen cupboards though - maybe twice a year...

Blossomhill Mon 29-May-06 14:39:50

Every 3-4 months

The full-monty (emptying out and cleaning down everything with bleach) about every 6 weeks. Other than that, just chuck all the old stuff out when trying to put new stuff away.

oh pruni - I am so glad you said that! At least I am not the only manky cow!

Almost never. However, I DO clean it more than my oven, which I only cleaned once in 11 years. I now have a new cooker, and like it so much I have ALREADY cleaned out the oven even though it's only a couple of months old.

I only clean it if something spills everywhere - did it last week cos a bottle of milk had leaked, before that was when I was heavily pregnant with DD... so 14 months ago!

bumbleweed Mon 29-May-06 20:02:09

I think I have done it 3 times and I have lived here 5 years! Is that minging?

noddyholder Mon 29-May-06 20:03:28

every month

FloatingOnTheMed Mon 29-May-06 20:05:05

I think about every 6 weeks.

Jessajam Mon 29-May-06 20:09:21

proper take it all out and wash all the bits in hot water etc etc...possibly annually ( not scheduled!!! Just ad hoc...!)
slapdash wipe here and there...when I notice the spreading mysterious sticky yellow satin at the same time as having a damp cloth near by...

Jessajam Mon 29-May-06 20:09:52

and by satin clearly I meant stain...i do not keep rolls of fabric in my fridge...
