How to prepare your mini fridge for storage

So, you decided to store that mini fridge you have in your dorm room? Great choice! Now you don’t have to deal with lugging it back home for the summer. But, how exactly should you prepare your fridge for storage? Don’t worry, we have all of the answers!

1. Unplug your refrigerator and leave the doors open at least 2 days prior to your selected move out day. This is to ensure that it has completely defrosted and dried so that it does not mold and leak water on your other items.

2. Wrap the cord up and tape it securely behind the coils so that it does not drag or tear.

3. Make sure to secure the drawers and shelves inside as they may shift during the move.

Doing these 3 easy steps will guarantee that your fridge will come back smelling normal and that your storage company won’t charge you extra for it not being defrosted properly.
