Wish your refrigerator shelves were easier to clean? Well, maybe it’s time to stick some shelf liners in there. While cruising Pinterest recently, I spotted a cool idea from She bought some plastic place mats from Target, cut them to the size of her fridge shelves, and used them a shelf liners.

This makes cleaning your fridge as simple as pulling the mats out and washing them off. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always worried that I’d break my glass shelves when I had them out for cleaning. This erases that concern, and it looks pretty snazzy, too.

I’m loving the look of the rainbow polka-dotted place mats that I found at Goodwill last weekend. Fun, eh?

  1. Tho it looks nice, won’t the mats cut down on the cooling
    that goes through the shelves that keep others things
    at the right temp? If you had to use something, which
    I should, wouldn’t the thin sticky shelf liner be a better
    choice? Just wondering.
    thanks, donna

    • Hi Donna,

      I’ve seen people use Press N’ Seal Wrap on their fridge shelves, so kind of the same concept as the shelf liner that you mentioned. Both would definitely work. The placemats that I use in my fridge are fairly thin, so I haven’t noticed any ill affects on food storage times. It’s interesting b/c you can actually buy a product called Fridge Coasters now. I think they’re similar in thickness to the mats that I use.

      Glad to hear you’re enjoying my blog 🙂

  2. PS, I just also wanted to tell you how much I like your
    blog. I just found it thanks to Donna Freedman, in her
