How to Get Rid of Your Refrigerator Odors

Upset housewife with foul meal

Think about all of the food that sits in your refrigerator on a daily basis. Fruits, vegetables, raw meat, eggs, cheese, and leftover Chinese – it’s no surprise that you will deal with unpleasant odors from time to time. If your refrigerator is reeking to high heavens, here’s how to squash the stench.

Remove the source of the smell.

What’s causing your fridge to stink so bad? Rotten eggs? Spoiled milk? Expired meat? Whatever it is, get it out of your refrigerator and into the outside garbage ASAP. If the source of the smell isn’t obvious, a full clean out may be in order.

Open a box of baking soda.

Baking soda has been used as a deodorizer for decades. Your mom, and even your grandma, probably had a box of it in the fridge at one point. Just open up a new box of baking soda, stick it in the refrigerator, and let it naturally absorb any smells. You should notice the difference within 24 hours.

Use air-tight containers.

One way to prevent refrigerator odors is by storing all of your food in air-tight containers. Sure, it’s easier to put the leftover pizza in the fridge in the box that it came in, but putting it in a container first will prevent your fridge from smelling like day-old pepperoni.
