You know that feeling when you open the freezer, shriek, then slam it closed before any bags of frozen-over mystery vegetables, crusty containers or mismatched ice packs can fall out? We definitely do. That’s why we’ve been sharing tips for keeping that freezer clean in 2020. If you’ve missed them on social media, we’ve rounded them up below! 

These simple tips will save you time and keep your relationship to your freezer stress-free all year long.
