Steps to Eliminate Odor from Your Refrigerator
Step 1: Begin by using a small bowl and adding about 1 quart of warm water.
Step 2: Pour some soap or dishwashing liquid into the bowl of water and mix well.
Step 3: Add a small amount of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate). Baking soda is readily available in grocery stores and supermarkets and helps neutralize odors and balance the pH level in the refrigerator. Adjust the dosage of baking soda if your refrigerator is large.
Step 4: Remove all food from your refrigerator and place them in a box or on a nearby table. Review all foods and condiments and discard any expired items, as they can contribute to the unpleasant smell.
Step 5: Clean the refrigerator drawers by soaking them in the sink.
Step 6: Wipe the surfaces of the refrigerator with a sponge, using the solution you prepared in the earlier steps. Gently clean the cabinet doors as well.
Step 7: Clean the ceiling and sides of the refrigerator to ensure thorough odor removal.
Step 8: Use a dry cloth to wipe the surfaces clean and remove any excess moisture.
Step 9: Pour a small amount of vanilla extract onto a paper towel and use it to wipe surfaces that come in contact with odor-causing foods.
Step 10: Rinse the refrigerator drawers thoroughly and allow them to dry completely.
Step 11: Once dry, place the drawers back in the fridge and arrange the food in a logical manner.
Note: Placing a bowl of baking soda in the refrigerator will help prevent odors more effectively.
