How to eliminate the foul smell from a fridge?

How irritating is the smell that comes from a fridge that has not been cleaned properly for a long time! In that case, one may wish to leave the door of the refrigerator open, but it might still not help.

Easy hacks to get rid of the foul smell from the refrigerator

  • Use mint: Fresh mint leaves are not only good as a mouth fresher but also help in keeping the fridge smelling fresh all day long. Just keep 7-8 mint leaves in a bowl in the fridge and after few hours, replace with fresh mint again.

  • Rose petals: rose is known for its sweet smell. Take some rose petals and place them in a bowl. After a few hours, change again with yet another fresh batch of rose petals.

  • Baking soda: Keep some baking soda in a bowl and place that bowl in the fridge. It will make the foul smell go away.

  • Wash everything: Remove all the articles from the fridge after unplugging it. Wash them thoroughly with baking soda and warm water. Let them dry properly. Then again place them in the fridge. This time the bad smell will eradicate. Just as in the previous step you used baking soda.

  • Vinegar: Use vinegar this time and you will get the same pleasant results.

  • Coffee beans: A bowl of dry coffee beans in the bottom of the fridge can help soak up any disgusting smell within a few days.

  • Lemon: Place half a lemon face down inside your fridge, and you will notice that all bad odour has been substituted by lemony scent. It is necessary to discard the lemon peel if it has turned completely dry.

Although repeated cleaning of the fridge is very important in order to get a fresh odour, if at times, it is not cleaned due to lack of time, these tricks might help
