Tips & Tricks: Why your fridge needs a teabag.

By on March 23, 2019

It’s not that strange that nasty smells develop in your fridge. After all, it holds a ton of different food products, each with their own smell. Not all food products can stand the temperature of your fridge very well, so it’s logical they start to smell after a while. Food that’s passed its expiration date can also start to smell; think of leftovers with garlic, onion or different types of cabbage. Does your fridge emit some dubious smells but do you not have the time to have an elaborate cleaning session? This simple trick can work wonders. All you need is a used a tea bag.

Before you apply this trick, make sure you remove the culprit of the nasty smell from your fridge or transfer it to an airtight container. Ready? Take a used tea bag and leave it to dry properly. Place it on a saucer and then place this saucer in a central spot in your fridge. If you have a particularly large fridge, you can use multiple tea bags. You’ll notice that the smell will get absorbed by the tea bag pretty quickly. Don’t drink tea? You can also use a small bowl of coffee grounds or baking soda instead.
