When cleaning your refrigerator, don’t use chemicals that can linger on your food and produce nasty odors. After emptying the fridge, simply dissolve a cup of salt in a gallon of hot water and wipe away. Squeeze in the juice of a lemon for a nice scent.

Besides baking soda and the tea bags posted yesterday, a number of other foods are capable of removing odors. Pour a little vanilla extract into a bottle cap and set it in the refrigerator to absorb odors. One of the best ways to eliminate odors is to hollow out a grapefruit or orange, fill it with salt, and place it back in the fridge. Leave it there until the salt gets completely damp, and then throw the whole thing out and replace.

A self-cleaning oven can leave an odor after it’s done its work. Eliminate the lingering smell by turning down the oven to 350 degrees when it’s finished, then putting orange peels on a baking sheet inside. Cook the peels for a half an hour, and not only will the oven smell fresh, but your whole kitchen will too!

Too bad you didn’t know about this back in college when you made popcorn in the dorm lounge. A tea bag in water (Even a used one) placed in the microwave for a minute is all you need to eliminate that stale smell in there.

Salt will clear out the gunk that collects in the garbage disposal and the smell that goes along with it. Pour a few spoonfuls in and flush with cold water, then run the disposal.

 

 

…and for the microwave.

 
Microwave odors? Cut a lemon in quarters and put it in a bowl of water, then put in the microwave, on high, for two minutes.
