Home remedies will effectively clean the refrigerator and freshen the air in it

Regular power outages create plenty of opportunities to finally stop putting off household chores and defrost the fridge. However, it's not all about de-icing. It is important to know how to wash the refrigerator after defrosting.

OBOZREVATEL has collected several options from improvised means that will help you cope with this task. At the same time, they will refresh the inside of the refrigerator and it will smell nice.

Tooth powder

This cosmetic product is specially made so gentle that it does not scratch tooth enamel. Accordingly, it is also suitable for cleaning other materials. Dissolve it with water to a paste, use it on the walls, bottom and shelves of the refrigerator and rinse well. Even unscented tooth powder will remove all odors well.


Of course, you don't need to buy a special tube for this as it's too expensive. However, if you have a tube of expired toothpaste lying around, you can use it to gently remove stains and stubborn dirt in the fridge.


Vinegar has excellent deodorizing properties. When its own odor disappears, only fresh air remains in the chamber. It also degreases surfaces, dissolves stubborn dirt and kills mold spores that can grow in the refrigerator. However, you should wear gloves when working with it because it is an acidic product that may not be very delicate to the skin.
