Hey /diy/, I fucked up real bad

I keep a 5 cu ft. mini fridge in my trailer to hold my food, and because I'm a retard, I accidentally left a decent amount of leftover fish, fruits, and vegetables in the fridge while I spent 3 months at my buddy's farm.

When I returned, a bad, rotten smell was emanating from the closed fridge, and all the items had molded. There were also hundreds of fruit flies, covering every surface of the fridge's interior.

I quickly threw out all the items and I'm now trying to figure out how I can make this thing safe to use again. I'm pretty sure its salvagable but I think it's going to require a very heavy cleaning.

What do you guys think I should do about it? I was thinking about taking it out back and heavily bleaching out the inside and then spraying it out with the hose for a long time, but I am worried that doing that will damage the electrical and mechanical parts of the fridge.

Yes spray with bleach and pressure wash the ahit out of it. You won't hurt anything, the chest is lined in plastic.

Sounds good, just when washing the inside, be sure to take out the hose/similar stuff for water droplets (that normally just leads to tray above compressor) to away flooding the screw terminal.

Bleach, chlorine and water at high pressure.
Anything containing chlorine works wonders against bacteria and spores.
Be sure to wash it properly and follow what

said.
We here in the hospital use alcohol and chlorine based disenfectants regularly.
Cleaning supplies with acetic acid work well too!

As a finish, pour ground coffee on a plate and leave it inside overnight. Does wonders to absorb smells.

Mixing bleach and ammonia is extremely dangerous, since toxic vapors will be produced.

AKA: Mustard gas

It's chlorine gas ya dingus, mustard gas is a lot harder to make than that
