Cleaning Fridge for Pesach

Question:

I’m planning on cleaning my fridge for Pesach. There are many cracks and corners that I can see chametz (less than a kezayis), but it is very hard for me to reach them. Is it enough lechatchila to spray detergent so they will not be fit for a dog to consume, or do I need to go crazy and remove them?

Answer:

According to the Law it is enough to render them unfit for a dog to consume.
