Give Your Fridge and Freezer An ODOR Makeover!

  • 08 Jul, 2017
  Odor Problems associated with improper food storage are actually much more common than most people realize. Each year, there are over seventy million cases of foodborne illness in just the United States. 
There are multiple factors that contribute to this huge number of cases, including the risk that goes along with eating food that has been stored in refrigerators warmer than 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Since having an overly packed fridge and freezer can make it more challenging to maintain a consistent temperature, the first step you should take is going through each area and clearing out old items. If you have doubts about how long something has been in there or the way it smells, err on the side of caution and toss it out.
Speaking of smells, odors can seem like an unavoidable problem if you’ve had your fridge and freezer for awhile. Fortunately, there is a reliable way to get rid of all the unwanted odors that can arise from inside your appliances. Here’s exactly what you need to do:
How to Use OdorXit to Rejuvenate Your Fridge and Freezer
It’s not uncommon for fridges and freezers that are currently in use to develop some strange odors. And if either appliance has been turned off and left closed, you’re going to have some very strong odors to combat.
Because the odors that arise in a fridge or freezer that’s currently running generally aren’t as stubborn, you should be able to use  OdorXit Magic   to vanquish them. Simply spray this awesome product onto the surfaces where the odors seem to be coming from. Keep in mind that Magic can only absorb a finite amount of odor causing gas. So if a smell persists, just give it time to dry and then spray again. Once you’ve applied the right amount, you can count on long-lasting odor relief.
If you’re dealing with a fridge or freezer that has been turned off and closed, you’re going to need OdorXit Concentrate to conquer these really tough odors. It’s generally easiest to handle this process outside. Start by completely defrosting the unit. You can then wash the interior with detergent and hot water. Once you’ve rinsed it out, wipe it completely dry.
Now you’re ready to harness the power of OdorXit Concentrate . You’ll want to mix 1 ounce of Concentrate into 1 quart (32 ounces) of water. Then spray the fridge or freezer’s entire interior with this mixture. Interior and gasket seams are hotspots for trapped odors, so be sure to hit those well. The same is true if your fridge has a hole in the back or the freezer features vents.
Once you’ve used Concentrate across all surfaces, close the appliance’s doors and leave it for a day. When you come back, open the doors to air it out and then your appliance will be free of terrible odors. This entire process should only take about an hour, and means you’ll be able to save hundreds or even thousands of dollars by not needing to replace your appliance!

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.
