The freezer (on top of refrigerator, not rreestanding freezer) is full of splashes from people dropping ice cubes into drinks, as well as other gooey dribbles. How can I clen iced coffee and other gunk from frozen surface?

    I would try mixing some vinegar into warm to hot water and using that to wipe it down, or even sprinkling baking soda on it and then using the hot vinegar solution to create the chemical reaction to loosen everything.

    Hot soapy water and towels. Let sit on spot a couple of minutes and use a flexible plastic spatula to remove any stuck-on goo. Work fast though, you don't want to strain your freezer.

    The hot water and vinegar should work the quickest. If nothing else, do it a couple of spots at a time. Put a sign on the freezer that tells people to put ice in their drinks over the sink, not in the freezer!

    Start by turning your freezer off. Next take everything out, wipe it quick, you can melt the ice with cold water. Return food to freezer. Put your ice cubes after their frozen in a plastic container/ lid. When someone wants a drink with ice they can get the container out on to the table, and help themselves.
