I hope you find some of these tips helpful…
Freshen up the Fridge
If your fridge starts to smell bad after a while. Try slicing a lemon and placing a piece on every shelf. You should be getting that lemon scent every time you open your fridge!
Washing Machine Odors
Have you tried adding a little vinegar and baking soda in the washer? Add them right into the washer and run a cycle. Not only should your washer smell better, your close will too.
How about the Dishwasher….
Take 1 cup of distilled white vinegar and place on top rack. Run the dishwasher on a regular cycle. Sprinkle 1 cup of baking soda on the bottom and run another cycle. That should do it!
If you have a garbage disposal, I am sure you find it convenient, however it can have a funny odor. I have found this to be helpful to eliminate that smell.
o Pour 2 cups of baking soda into the garbage disposal drain.
o Slowly pour in ½ cup (11 ml) of vinegar.
o Let the cleaner sit for an hour.
o After an hour, turn on the water and the disposal and run it for a minute.
You can keep the blades sharp while freshening up too. Freeze a mixture of ½ cup vinegar and water in an ice cube tray freeze and toss a couple in every once in a while. I hear orange or lemon peels can do the trick too.
