Refrigerators need to be thoroughly cleaned before spraying with OdorXit. Even the freezer should be completely defrosted, washed and sprayed inside and out. Seams on the interior and gaskets need special attention while washing and spraying because they both are areas where spilled foods hide, decompose and produce bad odors. An hour spent cleaning and spraying OdorXit on a really smelly refrigerator can restore a $300 unit to service instead of replacing it with another.
Spray the entire interior with OdorXit Eliminator
mixed 1 ounce per quart (32 ounces) of water. Refrigerator freezers should also be sprayed inside and out. Shelves, seams on the interior and gaskets need special attention while washing and spraying because they all are areas where spilled foods hide, decompose and produce bad odors.
Next, in the back of many refrigerators, there is either a hole in the interior where 2 tubes emerge from the insulation or there is a small passage that connects the freezer section to the refrigerator section of the unit. Spray this area thoroughly because it is so difficult to wash! If your freezer has large vents along the bottom in the front you may need to remove the plastic floor of the freezer in order to clean the food and goop from the cooling coils that hide within.
Finally, close the doors when you are finished spraying the entire interior of the unit. The next day, briefly air out the unit to purge the residual OdorXit smell and your refrigerator, freezer or cooler will be ready for use, without the nasty smell!
