How to clean a fridge drain?

lisaleira | May 21, 202004:32 AM     3

Hi all,
I don’t know if this is the right place to post this question, but I thought food aficionados would at least know how to deal with this. I live in a little Istanbul apartment with a mini fridge, and I’ve never seen food go moldy so fast. I don’t know if it’s the temperature, but I saw a funny little drain thing in the back that has mold in it!! I never saw such a drain in my normal full sized NY fridges.. and I’m wondering if this is the cause of the mold. Like getting into the air. Anyway, does anyone know what you do with these little fridge drain things? Do you drain it out the other end? Or pour bleach in it? I have no idea!

Here’s a pic of what seems like a drain (with mold!) to me—
