How to Keep The Fridge Smelling Fresh
When you open the fridge and find there is a funny smell, it could be because something has spilled, or perhaps there is a forgotten piece of food at the back of the salad drawer going slowly mouldy. However, even if you clean your fridge regularly, it can still get smelly from certain foods that are kept in there. Keeping strong cheeses and leftover meats in the fridge can cause a few unpleasant odours, as can cut up onions, and other strong smelling vegetables such as cauliflower, broccoli or sprouts. Something to remember when cleaning your fridge is to use non-toxic natural cleaning products because you have a lot of food exposed to the surfaces in a fridge, and chemical residue being near your food really is not recommended.
Once you have a clean fridge, and you continue to clean it regularly, you can put something in place to keep smells under control. You can buy fridge odour eliminators, however there are lots of safe and natural items in your kitchen that can be used to keep your fridge smelling fresh. An open tub of baking soda on the shelf of the fridge is a great odour eliminator, this is commonly known and something that many people use. Another less known tip is to put a small dish of coffee granules on the fridge shelf, this will quickly lose the coffee smell and take any nasty odours along with it. Another thing that is known to work too is a small cup of white vinegar.
Following these simple tips will easily keep your fridge smelling clean and fresh at any time of the day or night, no matter what food stuffs are being stored.
