5 Common Culprits of Kitchen Odors (And How to Eliminate Them)

  • 15 Feb, 2017
Your kitchen is a space that’s supposed to be filled with all kinds of delicious scents. 
So when a bad odor pops up, it’s natural to want to eliminate it as quickly as possible. That’s why we want to cover the five most common causes of these kinds of odors and then share a single product that can eliminate all of them:
  1. Indoor Cooking
Although grilling can be a really fun activity during the summer, it’s not very enjoyable when the weather is freezing cold outside. That’s why it’s normal to spend more time cooking in the kitchen during the winter months. While getting to eat cold weather favorites like chili is great, some of the smells that end up lingering in your kitchen aren’t always so pleasant.
  1. The Garbage Can
Even if you’re diligent about taking the kitchen trash out on a regular basis, the kitchen garbage can is a very common breeding ground for all kinds of odors that you never want to smell.
  1. Spoiled Food
This source of bad kitchen smells can take different forms. The first is when you know something has gone bad and are able to find it right away. Unfortunately, the smell can still linger. The form that’s even worse is when there’s a bad smell in the kitchen, but you can’t track it down because the spoiled food causing it has fallen somewhere that’s difficult to reach.
  1. Sink and/or Garbage Disposal
Even though garbage disposals do a great job of getting rid of waste, things can get stuck and start to stink. The types of food particles that cause these odors can also attach themselves to any part of your sink or the surrounding surface.
  1. Pets
It’a quite common for pets to love spending time in the kitchen. Not only is it place where they can hope to scoop up a food scrap, but it also tends to be a nice and warm spot. However, all the time they spend in this space can definitely contribute to an overall sense of general mustiness.

The recent storms that have ravaged multiple parts of the US have caused unprecedented damage. If you or your loved ones were affected by any of these storms, our thoughts and best wishes go out to you. Because these storms were so large in scale, people have experienced everything from moderate to complete damage.


Since getting rid of bad odors is our area of expertise, we want to help anyone who lost power for an extended period of time during one of these storms but didn't face complete damage to their home and belongings. Even if you're dealing with a refrigerator that smells incredibly bad due to it being fully defrosted and having items like frozen food decompose for days or even weeks, we want to go over how you can fully restore your appliance to its former condition.


5 Steps to Saving Your Refrigerator After Losing Electricity


The first step is to remove all of the spoiled food. This can be a truly nasty and smelly experience, which is why you'll want to wear a protective mask and gloves as you do it. Once your refrigerator is clean, take it outside and spray it out with a garden hose. If you have a truck or access to one, consider taking your appliance to a car wash and use the high-powered equipment to spray it out.


The next step is to spray one ounce of OdorXit Concentrate mixed with 30 ounces of water everywhere the refrigerator smells. That means spraying the insulation behind the doors,

under and around the door gaskets, the inside, behind the drawers and every little opening where the defrosted food might have dripped. Once the OdorXit Concentrate solution comes in contact with the rotten food smells, it will remove them from your refrigerator completely and safely.


The second to last step is to let the refrigerator dry outside then bring it back in the house. Don't panic if it still smells a little. It just means there is still at least one spot that hasn't been treated yet. You'll be able to knock it out by continuing to sniff and spraying wherever you detect even a slight odor.


The final step is to remember to be a good neighbor! Spray a few shots of the OdorXit Concentrate solution in the drain at the car wash or wherever you ended up treating your appliance. Anyone who comes by after you will be very glad you did.


By following the process above, it's possible to save even the worst smelling refrigerator, which in turns means saving hundreds of dollars by not needing to buy a replacement. So if you know anyone who's currently trying to restore belongings like their refrigerator, feel free to share this post with them by email or on Facebook.
