We buy food, things go bad, it happens! One major problem with that is the stench that is leftover for days and weeks to come. We find that this happens most around this time of year; when the fridge is overflowing with holiday food (especially if you’re hosting) and you prep a few nights before, or have leftovers for a few days after. Luckily, there are a few all-natural, easy tricks that can help prevent that smell that quite frankly, ruins our appetite.

Here’s what you do:

1. Alka Seltzer: Place 1 tab of alka seltzer in a small glass and place it in the back of your fridge, it will absorb all of the odor within one day!

2. Vanilla Extract: Place 1 tbsp of vanilla extract onto a small plate and add 2-3 cotton balls. Let the cotton balls absorb the vanilla, then place it in the back of your fridge. It acts as a deodorizer & smells great.

3. Citrus Peels & Sea Salt: Cut a large orange in half and completely scoop out the pulp, fill with 2 tbsp of sea salt. The salt absorbs and neutralizes odor while the citrus acts as a deodorizer.
