3. Use Vinegar and Baking Soda to Remove Odors
Cleaning your fridge with vinegar may seem counterintuitive since vinegar isn’t known for smelling very pleasant. However, it does have impressive odor-neutralizing capabilities that are similar to those of baking soda. Create a cleaning solution with equal parts vinegar and water, then use it to wipe down your refrigerator shelves if baking soda didn’t sufficiently remove all of the odors. You can also leave an open cup of vinegar in your fridge for a few days to keep additional bad odors from forming.
Once you have scrubbed down the entire interior of your fridge, open a small box of baking soda and place it on one of your refrigerator shelves. The baking soda will continually remove odors from your refrigerator and prevent it from becoming smelly again for a period of time.
