    How is the best way to clean the mildewed, rubber around the doors of a fridge? I have used bleach before on them, but am not wanting to this time as this one is indoors and it is too cool to open the windows.

    What can I use to make it easy without fumes?

    Use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.
    Quick, easy, no fumes.
    That's about all I use to clean anymore.

    I use a soft brush and a mixture of baking soda and water. The soft brush will get down into any crevices in the gasket.

    It doesnt take much bleach to kill it.a 1/4 (maybe as little as 1/8) to a gallon of water would be way more than enough.And not smell you out.I just put it on and let it dry.I hate the smell myself.How ever, some of the new sents Clorox uses smells pretty good.
