Everyone has to defrost their freezers once every two months, if you want your freezers to last. Here are tips you can use on how to do it the right way.
1. Dont just turn in off, unplug it.
2. Keep frozen food firm. Wrap packages and tubs in newspaper to insulate them. Stuff them into picnic coolers insulated bags. When you run out of those, use cardboard boxes.
3. If the manual says its ok, put pans of boiling water inside the freezer to hasten melting. Close the door for 15 minutes.
