It’s the most common olfactory assault in one’s home – opening the refrigerator door and holding your nose as you look for your leftover sandwich or trying to get the tomatoes before your breath runs out. There is a simple fix for this and you will be wondering why you didn’t try it in the first place!
First, clean your refrigerator thoroughly to stop future malodorous incidents. Also get into the practice of putting food and smelly spices into airtight containers.
To fully get rid of the bad smells, get some baking soda, pour it into a cup and place it in a corner of the refrigerator. You can add a drop of vanilla essence or a citrus essential oil. Remember to replace the baking soda every two to three months. As a quick fix, you can also sprinkle some baking soda on a damp, unused dish washing sponge.
