How fun is this idea submitted by It’s an Organized Chaos? She takes these fabulous plastic placements she found at Target and lines her refrigerator with them…
Fridge Mats Tutorial
How cool that she lined the refrigerator door shelves, too?!
Easy cleaning, and adds a fun pop of color!

Cool! I need to do this.
i think he was pulling your leg for lack of a better answer for you. Really there would be no way that a plastic mat on non-porous glass COULD cause less circulation. The glass shelf it’s self is a barrier to circulation. a mat couldn’t add to that in any way unless your fridge had magically porous glass that no one else has. Maybe you could get a second opinion from another fridge professional? On another note, Gonna do this come friday for sure!!! Cuteness and I won’t mind removing the mats to rinse instead of the shelves every time for sure.
i hate to be a downer but when i had my shelves lined and then experienced some challenges with it, the repairman said i had caused the fridge to not function properly due to lack of proper airflow. FYI. ck with others to verify but when we got rid of the shelf liners the challenges went away. He said i could have cmpletely ruined the fridge.
Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in Creative Busy Bee Craft Inspirations, under the Page 1 post on Sep. 06, 2012. Thanks again.
Does it make your fridge mold when something spills? I’m just thinking about doing it but wonder about maybe meat or milk spilling in the fridge. Is it easy to clean? I am a fridge freak! I bleach my fridge down every 2 weeks. Thanks!
What a great idea! It would be so much easier to clean by pulling out a plastic mat instead of the entire shelf. Although, I would wipe down the shelf with a little bleach on a rag but it’s still easier than pulling out a whole shelf and washing it in the sink.
Awesome idea! !
Love this idea! But wondering where you got the drink dispenser?
So cute! One question…do the spills get under the mat and make for more clean-up?

I bought the pitcher at target as well.
I’ve been doing this for years. I use the non-skid rug mats. But this is a great make-over. Fun color!
LOVE the pop of color – however, it blocks the light in my fridge 🙁
I did this today…but it didn’t turn out as nice as yours. I have a french door fridge, with the freezer on the bottom. The shelves are wider than in the side-by-side so I ended up with an inch or so gap on each side of the mat, so it doesn’t cover the entire shelf. But it still looks nice and will end up making my fridge easier to clean so I’m still counting it as a win. Thanks for the idea!

I’m looking for something this weekend! I just spent yesterday cleaning red Gatorade and leaked ketchup off my fridge shelves…what an awesome idea!!! ESPECIALLY with a 12-year-old son!

I love this idea! so much better than lining the fridge with saran wrap (another idea i saw on pinterest) because this is so much easier to install inside the fridge 🙂 and take out to clean!!
thanks for sharing

I used a roll of shelf liner – a thicker grip style, not the contact paper type..
great idea…and I have a roll of shelf liner in my pantry right now. It’s not the prettiest color, but it will do the job.
Love it, great idea
This is a really clever idea!
Laura Crowther says

Catherinelizabeth id love to see a photo of your liner! It sounds very original ?
