Easy Tips Will Make Your Fridge Smell Great:

1. Cleaning:                                                                                   

We bet, not even we can’t survive without bathing ourselves; how can you expect electronic devices to function without being regularly cleaned up? Your fridge has become dirty and needs cleaning. It is time to turn off the appliance, remove everything that is stored inside; you may shift the food to the cooler or consume it before the cleaning process begins. Remove all the removable parts like shelves, bins, compartments, and soap these in soapy water. Dry these properly and clean the inside of the fridge with a soft cotton cloth dipped in vinegar.

2. Deodorize:

Everything needs to feel fresh and smell fresh. Similar to how we apply perfume or talcum powder after bathing, your fridge needs a good deodorant too. Leave your fridge door open and place a jar of baking soda. Leave it inside with the lid open for 24 hours at least.

3. Coffee is another Alternative:

If you do not have baking soda at home, you may sprinkle some coffee powder on a plate and place it inside the fridge for 24 hours. You may use the remains of the coffee the next day in your house plants to organically fertilize it. Thus, nothing would go wasted.

4. Scent it:

You may also few cotton balls dipped in nice scent or fragrance and leave it inside the fridge for few hours. Your fridge will smell irresistible!
