Nutritionists say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but a smelly fridge is enough to instantly make you lose your appetite first thing in the morning. No one wants their cheese to smell like eggs, or their eggs to smell like cheese.
Don’t worry, we’ve got some easy tips to help you get that fridge clean, hygienic and smelling fresh!
1) Use Dishwashing Liquid and Warm Water
First, start by switching off the fridge. Empty your fridge and remove the shelves and drawers. Prepare a cleaning solution by mixing 3-4 drops of a dishwashing liquid in a bowl of warm water. Dip a clean sponge in this solution and use it to clean the inner part of your fridge thoroughly. This will help you get rid of the root source of the odour.
2) Use a Powerful Fridge Odour Eliminator
Even after thoroughly cleaning your refrigerator, if you still notice some strong lingering odour, don’t worry. To get rid of these intense smells, place a small bowl of baking soda inside your fridge. Alternatively, you can also use a commercial product to do the job.
3) Regular Cleaning
Getting rid of the unpleasant odours from your refrigerator is one thing, but keeping them at bay is another! The good news is that it’s easy. Try to dedicate a few minutes every week to check through your fridge and remove any food items that have expired. Rotting foods give off nasty smells, and can contaminate other items too.
A good habit to get into is wrapping foods up tightly before putting them in the fridge or storing them in airtight containers to stop the smells from getting out.
