For Cleaning

Baking soda is a natural and inexpensive way to clean your refrigerator. You store your family’s food in there, so why would you want to use cleaning chemicals to get your refrigerator clean?


Unplug your fridge and completely empty it, then remove the shelving. Mix baking soda and water to create a paste and start scrubbing everything down – the interior, the shelves, the drawers, and the door compartments. Use a soft, damp cloth to rinse everything down and remove the paste.


The abrasive texture of baking soda is great for removing stuck on food residue, and the odor-fighting capabilities give your fridge a fresh smell without the overpowering scent of cleaning chemicals. For grease spills, add lemon juice to your baking soda paste.


To Control Odors

An open box of baking soda in the refrigerator is great for absorbing odors and keeping your refrigerator smelling fresh after a good scrub-down.


To keep odors out of drawers, sprinkle a little baking soda in the bottom, and then cover with a paper towel before placing your food back in the drawers. Replace your baking soda box, and the baking soda in the drawers about once every three months.
