How to Get Rid of Condensation on Display Fridge Doors

What causes condensation on fridge doors?

In simple terms, condensation occurs when moisture contained in warm air meets a surface that is cold enough to turn it back into a liquid. Display refrigeration is particularly susceptible to condensation during summer because this is when the difference in temperature between the outside and the inside is at its greatest.

Check the Door Gasket

If there is any damage to the rubber gasket, which is intended to provide an airtight seal around the closed door, this may be letting warm air into the fridge from the outside and contributing to the condensation. Check the door gasket regularly for any holes or tears, replace if you see any damage. The gasket can be safely removed from any fridge or freezer door and re-inserted after inspection. Consult your product manual for model specific instructions.

How do I get rid of condensation on my fridge doors?

While of course you can buy something like a window vac to clean the condensation on your fridge doors, you can actually do it without the use of any expensive equipment.

To help with clearing the condensation away, you can make a simple, home-made solution to assist in cleaning the condensation by mixing two cups of water with two cups of white vinegar and a couple drops of washing up liquid.

Pour this mixture into a spray bottle if you have one and spray the solution straight onto your window. Use a soft cloth to wipe it down and let the glass air dry once you’re finished.

Anti-Fog Sprays

Another type of product which may help reduce or eliminate condensation is an anti-fog spray, such as Rain-X or other brands. These sprays are used on vehicle windscreens to prevent fogging up. Ask your local hardware or automotive store for an Anti-Fog spray and apply it to the outside of your display fridge or freezer glass
