Second-hand refrigerators are worth buying non-brand-new refrigerators through different channels. The price of second-hand refrigerators is much more affordable than brand-new refrigerators, so they are very popular with renters, but do you know how to disinfect second-hand refrigerators after they are bought back? do you know some methods to distinguish between good and bad second-hand refrigerators? Then the post will introduce in detail how to disinfect second-hand refrigerators and some methods to distinguish the quality of second-hand refrigerators.

How to disinfect the second-hand refrigerator

The disinfection method of refrigerator and other dining appliances is very simple, at present the more reliable method is to use peracetic acid. Peracetic acid can wipe the surface and inside of the refrigerator at a concentration of 0.5%. After wiping for 15 to 20 minutes, wipe it twice with a rag thrown by clean water. Generally speaking, it is difficult for families to prepare standard concentration. You can use a basin the size of an ordinary washbasin, fill it with water, and then pour peracetic acid into a cola bottle cap of about 0.5%. When wiping the interior of dining appliances such as refrigerators or microwave ovens, be sure to dry with a clean dishcloth and dry it for a while, so that peracetic acid can be fully evaporated so as not to smell when in use.


Peracetic acid diluent is very easy to decompose, so it should be prepared whenever you use it. In addition, you must stay away from children. Wear rubber gloves when preparing at home to prevent the liquid from corroding the skin. Peracetic acid is corrosive to metals and can not be used for disinfection of exposed metals. If the liquid is accidentally splashed on your eyes or skin, rinse with clean water immediately and go to the hospital for treatment if necessary. Housewives should be careful not to use ineffective liquid medicine to avoid contact with children. Store the liquid in the dark, away from combustibles.

Methods to distinguish between good and bad second-hand refrigerators  

1.  Brand

All good brands have a certain reputation, which is the evaluation given by consumers to the product.

2. Customer Services

Good products must have good after-sales service.

3.  Noise

Noise is a kind of pollution, and a good refrigerator must minimize noise.

4. Function

5. Technology

6. Power consumption
