How to Prevent Bad Smells in Your Fridge

Bad odours from kitchens can be quite irritating, especially if they originate from your fridge. These bad smells cause discomfort and can be quite difficult to get rid of. So, prevention is better than cure in this case. The Gold Coast team here at KBHI has come up with a few tips and tricks on how to prevent bad smells in your fridge. Enjoy!

Correct Usage

This is very important. Not only because this will prevent bad odours in your fridge, but also to make sure your fridge functions properly and lasts a long time. Use your fridge at the recommended temperatures according to the manuals. This way you won’t waste power, your food will stay fresh longer, and your fridge won’t smell since your food won’t go off.

Proper Storage

If you store your food in the fridge properly, then your fridge is less likely to get smelly. Cool down all your food to room temperature before you put it in the fridge. Additionally, make sure you cover your food with lids or cling wrap.

Regular Cleaning

This is obvious, really. If you keep your fridge clean, then it won’t get smelly. Clean your fridge regularly and throw out things you don’t need.

Good Air Circulation

Make sure your food isn’t blocking the air vents inside the fridge. Don’t over pack your fridge. Over packing restricts air passage and this can cause your fridge to give off a bad odour inside.

So those were the ways in which you can prevent bad smells in your fridge. While the fridge is an important part of the kitchen, there are other parts of the kitchen that also require your attention.
