Simply scrubbing shelves, compartments and other parts may not be enough. Here is an all-natural technique to clean your fridge and leave it smelling fresh.

The evaporator coil is located behind the freezer compartment. Unscrew the panel and clean the ice over the coil with some paper towel.

Step 1:

Turn off the power. Clear all the food; throw away anything that’s rotten and store the rest of the edibles in an appropriate place.

Step 2:

Remove the shelves and other brackets. Wash them in warm water and Vim dishwash liquid.

Step 3:

Add a cup of baking soda in a tub of water. Using a cotton cloth, clean the interiors of the fridge. If the bad smell persists, check the evaporator coil.

Step 4:

Rub a few lemon slices on the shelves for a pleasant fragrance. You can also place some freshly ground coffee beans on a plate in your refrigerator for a slightly strong aroma.

Clean your fridge at least once a month.
