The last thing you want when you open your refrigerator door is a waft of foul smells. That’s where you keep your food. It should be crisp, clean, and odorless.

You store everything you feed your family in your fridge, so you definitely want to fight the funk with something all-natural. This fridge deodorizer does exactly that! The baking soda absorbs the bad smells, and the essential oils release healthy and fresh aromas back into the air.

No one has time for complicated tutorials, so I made sure this was so easy, you could do it while multi-tasking.

Natural Air Deodorizers

Let’s face it, life comes with bad smells. From stinky socks near the laundry basket to foul food in the garbage can – it’s tough to escape them all. Instead of using harsh chemicals to get rid of these smells, try to use some essential oils.

These gel air fresheners eat smells that hang in the air. `They are made with gelatin, vodka, and essential oils. I like to place a few in the stinkiest places like the bathroom and near the kitchen trash can.

Make some DIY reed diffusers if you want something that will make the entire room smell amazing. They don’t require electricity and fit in the smallest spaces! Plus, they look cute enough to enhance your room’s decor.

Baking soda has been used for years as a natural fridge deodorizer. When you add some essential oils to it, you have something that doesn’t just get rid of stinky smells but actually creates a better aroma at the same time.

The Best Essential Oils To Use In The Refrigerator

I think that any citrus essential oil will smell amazing in your refrigerator. My favorite kind of all time is lemon essential oil. It has a sun-kissed aroma that lifts your mood the minute you smell it!

You could also try making a fridge deodorizer with either orange, lime, tangerine, or grapefruit essential oil.

How To Deodorize The Fridge

The first step is going to be to clean out your refrigerator. Throw away any expired food and wipe everything down. Then, make the fridge deodorizer.

This is one of the easiest things you can do. Just add the baking soda to the mason jar, then drop some essential oil drops on top. Cover it with a cheesecloth so that the essential oil can do its job and make your fridge smell amazing!

How often should I change baking soda fridge deodorizer?

I suggest changing your fridge deodorizer once a month. After about 30 days, the baking soda would have absorbed as many odors as possible and would need to be switched out with a new supply.
