My Refrigerator Stinks! | How to FIX a Smelly Fridge |

opening your fridge and getting hit with

a nasty smell isn't great but fixing it

is pretty easy simply pour some baking

soda into a small container and place it

in your fridge a small bowl will work

but the more surface area the baking

soda has the better it'll absorb odors

spreading a note on a small plate is

perfect and if you don't have any baking

soda you can use fresh coffee grounds

instead they're pretty good at absorbing

smells and will give your fridge a hint

of that delicious coffee aroma

now that's an easy way to absorb bad

smells but it won't fix a source maybe

it's food that's gone bad or maybe your

fridge hasn't been cleaned in a while if

smelly leftovers are making your fridge

smell funky toss them if all the food in

your fridge is fine but there's still a

weird smell it's probably time for a

deep clean remove the shelves and bins

giving them a scrub down in soapy water

if you want to go the extra mile you can

also scrub them down with a baking soda

and water mixture or a water and bleach

mixture making sure to rinse them really

well do the same with the interior

surfaces of the fridge and then

reinstall the shelves and bins once

they're dry if your fridge still smells

after cleaning it it's possible

something's gone awry in your freezer

air gets circulated between the fridge

and the freezer so a bad smell could be

shared to check your freezer and make

sure it's working right if it's not

you'll want to toss out anything that is

spoiled and fix your freezer ASAP

once you've given it a good cleaning the

offending smell should be history now

that we've gotten rid of the smell how

can we make sure it doesn't make a

comeback the baking soda or coffee

grounds is a great start but you'll also

want to make sure all your containers

are sealed properly this way if

something spoils the smell won't invade

your fridge it'll also help eliminate

the spills and messes that can begin to

smell weird over time you should also

check your fridge door seal to make sure

it's not worn out cracked or broken if

it is warm air is getting into your

fridge which can make your food spoil

faster replacing it with a new one will

help your food last longer and keep your

fridge running efficiently thanks so
