Bad odours appear very often in freezers and refrigerators. They are usually caused by the food supplies that we keep in these appliances, and can be easily removed. The thing is, though, that very few people know how to deodorise their fridges without endangering their health. Londoners use commercial cleaners for this purpose and most of these products contain toxic ingredients. They cause skin irritation, allergies and hard breathing. If you are not careful you can really get into trouble.
How to deodorise without endangering your health, though?
- The most important thing to do when you sense an unpleasant smell in your refrigerator is to find its source and to remove it. Otherwise, you won’t be able to deodorise your appliance properly, because the rotten product will keep on emitting stenches.
- The best you can do is to take everything out of your fridge and to check the expiry date of each product. Get rid of everything that has started staling.
- Prepare a solution made of one cup hot water, one cup hot lemon juice, and one tablespoon baking soda. Put it in a squirt bottle and spray the whole interior of your refrigerator. Rub with a sponge until you remove all stains and dirt, the solution will disinfect your appliance and will deodorise it partially. It won’t remove the whole smell, though.
- Once you clean your appliance’s interior, fill up a cup with baking soda and put it in your fridge. Let it stay there for a night, and it will absorb the unpleasant smell. If you want you can use lemon halves or a cup full of hot white vinegar for the purpose, they do the same good job. These everyday products can manage any unpleasant odour just as good as some renowned commercial deodorisers. You can thoroughly rely on them. Not only this but the acid in the vinegar and lemon juice even kills bacteria and germs.
Fridge deodorising is not such a hard task, but it requires some time. If you don’t have enough of it, though, or if you can’t manage it on your own, you can hire a fridge cleaning specialist from London to do it for you. Nowadays, there are a lot of cleaning companies which offer fridge cleaning services, and will gladly help you. Moreover, these firms use only eco-friendly products, which won’t endanger your health or the health of your dearest ones.
