Experts explained how to quickly get rid of unpleasant odors in the refrigerator

Over time, a persistent unpleasant odor accumulates in the refrigerator. The stench can even remain in empty appliances.

Fortunately, there are a few simple steps to get rid of persistent odors forever. This is reported by Express.co.uk.

To eliminate odors, place an open box of baking soda in the refrigerator. Although it takes time, baking soda works by balancing the pH of acidic and alkaline substances to reduce odor-causing particles.

The same ingredient can also be used to clean shelves and compartments for a deeper clean - just combine it with water to form a liquid and wipe the inside of the appliance with it.

You can also use coffee grounds. Simply put one cup of ground coffee in a bowl or on a plate and leave it in the refrigerator uncovered. One to two days is enough time to mask odors while the baking soda absorbs them.

The drip tray may become moldy if the refrigerator has not been cleaned or emptied for some time. To clean it, turn off the refrigerator and remove all food. Then clean it with warm water and detergent before putting it back in.

Remember that an oven is probably one of the hardest appliances to clean. Traces of dirt, grease, and food residue accumulate after each cooking session and clog its walls. Fortunately, there's an easy way to remove them effortlessly.
