How to Remove Rotten Meat Smell or Odor from the Refrigerator
Meat rotted in the refrigerator isn’t only one of the worst smells but one of the most stubborn to remove. However, thanks to all of these proven methods, you may not have to live with spoiled meat or any other odor in your refrigerator for much longer.
Effective Odor Removers
A number of substances can be effective at removing the smell of rotten meat or other odors from your refrigerator, including:
- Baking soda
- Ground coffee
- Activated charcoal
- Kitty litter
- Chlorine dioxide (CI02)
Vinegar is an effective way to get rotten meat smell out of your fridge. Plus, it is also a safe and natural bleach, which can help if your refrigerator has stains. You can use straight vinegar to clean the interior, as well as cleaning vinegar. If using the latter, it’s important to ensure you’re using it in a well-ventilated area.
Using a bleach solution of one tablespoon bleach to one gallon of water can help kill odor-causing bacteria. After you’ve cleaned your refrigerator with soap or another cleaning product, apply bleach solution to all inside surfaces as a rinse.
A well-known odor absorber, an opened box of baking soda can be placed in your refrigerator to absorb odors. Or, mix with water to form a powerful scrubbing cleaner. Allowing your refrigerator to run for a few days as you do this will help to activate the baking soda.
Placing a bowl or baking sheet with fresh coffee grounds inside your refrigerator is another way to effectively eliminate odors. Close the door and run your refrigerator for a couple to a few days before cleaning and rinsing with bleach or vinegar.
Another way to get rid of the smell of rotten meat from your refrigerator is to use activated charcoal. This particular odor remover is so powerful because it has been treated with oxygen at high temperatures. In fact, activated charcoal is used to absorb toxic chemicals by industry and in emergency rooms. Place a tray of this substance inside your running refrigerator until the odor is gone.
If you have a cat or know someone who does, you understand the power of kitty litter at absorbing powerful odors. So why not try placing a tray of fresh kitty litter in your refrigerator to remove the smell of rotten meat? Again, it’s important to ensure your refrigerator is running if you’re trying this method.
Although it may sound like a chemical, chlorine dioxide, or CI02 is totally harmless. When it’s exposed to air, this gas degrades into saline solution. Why is chlorine dioxide so effective? The secret is oxygen. Once it hits the air, oxygen completely gets rid of rotten meat smell in your fridge
