Eliminate That Odor in Your Kitchen by Cleaning Out Your Refrigerator


Have you noticed a funny smell every time you walk in your kitchen? Do you have more things growing in your dishes than a science lab does? It might just be time to give your refrigerator a good cleaning out. Here’s the best way to get the job done.

Begin by taking everything out of your refrigerator and turning the temperature control to “OFF.” Throw away any food that is old, spoiled, or moldy. Remove all shelves and drawers. Use only warm soapy water to wash both the inside and outside of your refrigerator. Always wash from top to bottom. Never use harsh scouring pads or cleansers. Before replacing the shelves and drawers, make sure the inside is completely dry. Don’t forget to clean the gasket (the rubber molding around the door). If this gasket is particularly dirty, use an old soft toothbrush to get in all the crevices. 

To keep your refrigerator smelling sweet, place an opened box of baking soda in both the freezer and refrigerator compartment. You can now restock your refrigerator. Hopefully, you’ll no longer hear those thoughts running through your mind, “Now what was this?”
