Best Refrigerator Odor Absorber

Save The Newspaper For That Smelly Fridge

Newspaper works best at snaring those nasty invisible stinky molecules that float around your refrigerator and freezer. Just take a section of newspaper and crunch it up like a basketball to expose more surface area and put it in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Yes, that is correct, in the freezer. There is no need to put it in the fresh food section since 100% of the air in your refrigerator circulates through the freezer first.


Change it once a week and your refrigerator will be fresh as new. If you need to store something especially smelly overnight like fish or that leftover pizza in the box, just put some newspaper on top of the container for extra odor absorption

Still wondering if it works?

Place a section of crunched up newspaper in your freezer for a few days. Take it out and give it the old smell test. After that you will have no doubt that it works! Use cat litter and activated charcoal to remove refrigerator odors. Unscented cat litter and activated charcoal can also be used. Simply spread some on a cookie sheet and put it in the fresh food section of your refrigerator.


That having been said, we still think that newspaper is best because you were just going to throw it away anyway. Hey, that makes removing the smelly odors from your refrigerator FREE! Plus you don’t have to worry about spilling cat litter or activated charcoal in your leftovers.

Have you ever wondered what the ideal refrigerator temperature is?
