How to get rid of a bad smell in the refrigerator

One of the ways to naturally stimulate your appetite is to open the fridge and to choose something tasty and fresh. What happens however when you open the fridge’s door and feel a bad smell? This is the end of your plans to have a nice breakfast. Many people deny they have this problem, but this is only because most of them feel ashamed to admit their fridges smell awful.

Anyway, you don’t have to worry about that because you can deal with the situation just in a few simple steps.

1. Use lemons.

This is the easiest way to remove the bad smell. You just have to clean the fridge with a sponge and water with a few drops of lemon. After cleaning you can put a small dish with a few slices of lemon and you will feel (or rather smell) the result very fast. The natural citrus aroma will remove even the worst fragrance.

2. Use onion.

If your fridge “suffers” from the strong smell of fish, a half of onion in the corner of the refrigerator will solve the problem very effectively. Onion has always been known as one of the easiest ways to get rid of the unpleasant and resistant smell of seafood, so don’t hesitate to use it.

3. Ground coffee.

An interesting alternative to eliminate any kind of bad fragrances is to put some ground coffee in the refrigerator. Except for making us full of energy, the coffee is a good way to make you fridge smell good.

4. Bread.

Most of you probably have heard from your grandmothers and mothers about the magical ability of the bread to absorb unpleasant smells. However, if you hear this for the first time don’t hesitate to try it. If you put a slice of bread, the effect will come very fast and you will forget about the bad small in a few hours.

5. Orange peels.

An interesting way to make you refrigerator smell good is to put some orange peels inside. Remember that citruses will be your best friends in the battle with the unpleasant fragrance.


Before to say: “Heyyy, this method is totally unavailing” we recommend you to check if there is something (spoiled or rotten foods for example) in the refrigerator to emit a disagreeable odor. If you find something suspicious just remove it from the fridge and then use some of our methods.
