CLEANING the outside of your fridge is just as important as cleaning the inside, according to experts.
A TikToker showed her viewers the hidden part of their fridge that needs to be cleaned every year.
TikTok user Megan, who runs the account Grove House Reno, revealed the important part of your fridge you're forgetting to clean.
Megan demonstrated how to use a vacuum to clean the coils at the back of your fridge.
"Move fridge and unplug. Remove bottom cover. Feel horrified," the TikToker joked as she gave viewers a close up look of her fridge.
Appliance repair expert Renae, known to her followers as Renduh, explained the importance of cleaning your refrigerator coils once a year.

Explaining the concept of thermodynamics, she said: "You basically have to take the heat and put it somewhere else. That's what a fridge does."
"So inside the refrigerator is cold but in the back bottom of your fridge, which is usually where those coils are located, it’s hot," Renae added.
The expert detailed how coils refer to the condenser, which pumps refrigerant throughout your machine.
"The location of your condenser is different from model to model, but your fridge manual will show you where and how to clean," Renae said.

The TikToker continued: "Those parts are usually hot, they can’t get too hot otherwise parts are going to break. When those condenser coils are caked in dust, it’s like a nice fuzzy warm little gross sweater, which can cause them to overheat."
"So make sure you pull out your fridge and clean them once a year," she advised her followers.
Renae's followers took to the comments section to share their thoughts on the cleaning advice.
"I cleaned mine last week and felt like such an adult," wrote one viewer.
Another user said: "'ve never done this and now I feel the need to clean my fridge out so I can check the coils."
"If we didn't have enough motivation before, I think 'fuzzy gross warm sweater' will do it," Megan commented on Renae's video.
