The refrigerator has a central role in food preservation, especially because without it you wouldn’t be able to shop for a long time.

Sometimes, however, unpleasant odors accumulate inside which are then spilled onto the food, causing a general annoyance which also results in a stench throughout the house.

The good news is that you have many solutions at your disposal and today I will show you what they are! Let’s discover together 4+1 natural remedies that absorb any odor present in the refrigerator!

Sodium bicarbonate

Sodium bicarbonate is a real ally in the fight against fridge smell and in general it can help you remove various types of bad odors from different environments.

Simply place a small open container of baking soda inside the refrigerator. This way the product will be able to absorb unpleasant odors like a sponge, leaving your refrigerator fresh and odorless.

To always ensure an optimal result, change the bicarbonate of soda every week , so that it is fresh and the appliance is odorless.


Fresh herbs aren’t just for the kitchen, they can also act as freshness agents in your refrigerator.

Among these we are interested in laurel , which stands out for its fantastic ability to perfume and capture all unpleasant odors . So, if you have a couple of bay leaves at home, you already know how to use them!

Fill a bowl with a sprig or leaves of the plant and place it on the shelf of the refrigerator that smells bad. Leave it there for as long as necessary (it may take days) and only remove it when the smell has gone away.

Coffee grounds

Among all the remedies we see together, this is perhaps one of the most interesting because it is not only ecological, but also anti-waste!

In fact, coffee grounds are excellent not only for absorbing odors in the refrigerator, but also for many other things in the home and garden.

The coffee will absorb odors, leaving a light and pleasant fragrance!


White vinegar is another natural method that is added to the solutions that absorb odors from the refrigerator in a short time.

First of all, consider that it is the most suitable product for general cleaning of the appliance , as it washes away the most stubborn stains and also neutralizes odors.

In any case, by simply placing 1 small bowl full of vinegar inside the fridge, you will already be able to notice the difference after a few hours, noticing a sudden decrease in the smell.

After a few hours, or after a day, the smell in the fridge will no longer be a problem!

Lemon slices

Citrus fruits, such as lemons or oranges, not only add freshness to your fridge, but can also fight unpleasant odors.

In our case, however, we will use the most famous one in the world! Cut a lemon into slices and place it on a saucer inside the refrigerator.

The natural acidity will help neutralize bad odors, giving your fridge a citrus scent .
