How to Get Rid of Those Stinky Odors Around Your Home

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.
