Tried of a smelly refrigerator? Try this citrus refrigerator deodorizer. It’s easy to make and will leave your fridge smelling amazing.
A smelly fridge is no one’s friend but it happens to the best of us. The best way to prevent this is to keep your fridge clean and never forget about food, but let’s be real, we will forget.
Cleaning out the fridge is likely my least favorite chore. I always end up grossed out and feeling guilty about something we forgot to eat. Something always gets pushed to the back and forgotten, no matter how hard I try to avoid it.
Simple baking soda works well for most odors but this deodorizer works even better and leaves a nice fresh citrus smell. And it’s very simple to make.
If you don’t have a jar with holes in the lid you can use a mason jar and remove the disk in the lid and use cheesecloth or breathable fabric instead. You can even remove the lid and add the fabric and use a rubber band to attach it.
- 1/4 cup of baking soda
- 10 drops of orange essential oil
- 4-ounce glass jar with holes in the lid
- Fill your container with baking soda.
- Add 10 drops of a citrus essential oil. Mix well.
- Stick in your fridge and replace monthly.
If you don’t have essential oils yet be sure to check out Plant Therapy. I love their essential oils and they are very affordable.
When you refill your jar be sure not to waste the baking soda. Put it in your drain and follow with a bit of vinegar to help flush out your drain and leave it smelling fresh.
You can set these around your home as well to help with odors. They are great to stick in your closet next to your shoes. The ideas are endless.
