- A gasket is a protective lining usually fitted on the refrigerator door to guard against the entry of dust, fungi, and bacteria.
- In some refrigerators, the gasket is permanently fixed while in some it is removable for cleaning purposes.
- Over time, gaskets get clogged with fungi build-up and bacteria.
- For Samsung refrigerators, for example, you can peel off the gasket off the door for cleaning.
