Make Your Own Fridge Liners!

ideas for the house on Mar 11, 2015

The fridge is a place where spills, goo, and grime are imminent. It's as if food fights happen in the night as we sleep. These easy DIY fridge coasters are inexpensive and make cleaning the fridge easy and efficient. By installing plastic placemats onto shelves and into condiment containers, there is no longer any need for hauling out large, awkward shelves (which, let's face it, do not fit into most sinks). Simply slip out the placemat, wipe it down and re-install! Easy, efficient and - happily enough - kind of pretty!
Check out the blog link if you want to see the details on my "before". Trust me, it will make you feel better about your own fridge situation.
Time: 15 Minutes Cost: $10 Difficulty: Easy

    Great idea, @Carole. I'm sure that paper towel would work well too!

    Thanks Tara, I think your plastic placemats are a practical and cheery colourful aid in keeping the fridge clean. A good idea I reckon!

    I saw this idea and I was shopping at a box store and they had a shower curtain liner for $3 and so I cut it up for the shelves, drawers and the door. Yes it took a little bit to do, but it looks so much better. Thank you for the idea.

  • Tara @ Suburble

    @Barbara I - What a clever idea! It's amazing how quickly the fridge can be transformed! You'll have to let me know how the liners are for clean-up purposes! Your idea could be an even less expensive one than the placemats!

      @Tara @ Suburble I have already had a spill, and it was not a problem. Wiped up and it was just fine.

    I had several left over vinyl tablecloths, I have cut to fit, Is there anything to attach to keep the vinyl from slipping as you remove items from fridge?

    • Tara @ Suburble

      @Nancy Ahhh.... that might be trickier. I used stiff vinyl placemats, so they didn't move easily.
      I can only suggest that you perhaps attach something like a slip-free matting (for drawers and cupboards?) to your vinyl? That will hold them down
