How to remove unpleasant odor from the refrigerator: simple and effective ways
It is very difficult to get rid of unpleasant odor from the refrigerator. Even after washing it with expensive products and throwing away spoiled food, pungent odors can continue to fill your kitchen with every opening of the door.
Soda copes with heavy soiling. It is also a neutralizer of aromas, balancing the pH of acidic and alkaline substances.
First, experts advise you to wash the refrigerator with a baking soda solution. Pay special attention to shelves, grates and doors.
The simplest recipe: pour baking soda into a container with water and wipe the liquid on the inner surfaces of the refrigerator. You can take 1.5 liters of water and 2 tablespoons of baking soda.
There is a very interesting way: an open pack of baking soda should be put in the refrigerator for at least 72 hours. It should absorb unpleasant odors.
Coffee or lemon
If you have cleaned the refrigerator and threw out the leftovers, but the unpleasant odor remains, you can use a flyhack with ground coffee or lemon.
You should pour ground coffee into a shallow cup and leave it in the refrigerator for 3 days. A similar lifehack applies to lemon juice.
Coffee acts as an absorbent, so there will be no trace of odors.
How to clean the refrigerator
To neutralize unpleasant odors, you should follow a few important tips.
If the filters are not cleaned in time, mold may accumulate in them. They should be cleaned at least once every 6 months.
Before washing the refrigerator from the inside, sweep and vacuum underneath it. Many crumbs and food debris accumulate in these areas, which can rot over time.
Don't forget about the water tray. It can get moldy if it is not cleaned for a long time. It is recommended to clean the tray with warm water and regular dish detergent.
Excessive amount of water in the refrigerator is a sign of a faulty seal. Unpleasant odor appears due to excessive moisture.
