Steps to Get Rid of Bad Smells

Firstly, it is essential to remove everything in the fridge, including the shelves and food items. Discard any food products that may be spoiled or expired. Using a piece of cloth or sponge soaked in soap water, wipe down every surface found in the fridge. This includes the interior of the fridge, shelves and food packaging.

Secondly, thoroughly clean the fridge with the use of baking soda and vinegar. This solution works as excellent odor absorbers and cleaning agents. In addition to be an all-natural alternative to cleaning solutions, the solution is also great at removing stains that are difficult to remove. Use a piece of cloth or sponge that’s soaked in this solution to wipe down the nooks and crannies of the fridge.

Thirdly, soak a piece of cloth or rag in warm water to rinse away remnants left from the baking soda and vinegar solution. Continue rinsing with warm water until you have washed away most of the residue.
