Preventing Odor in the Family Hub Refrigerator

The refrigerator is one of the hardest working appliances in your home. It's subject to spills and various odors. Make sure to keep your fridge clean and tidy as a clean fridge is the key to prevent odors and keep food fresh longer.

6 Steps to Prevent Odor in Your Refrigerator

  1. Clean it COMPLETELY! This is the most difficult task. Check all the items in your fridge and throw out anything that has expired. Make sure to clean the seals. Remove all the door bins and shelves to clean them separately.

  2. Use natural cleaning solutions. Using chemicals where you keep your food is a bad idea. Instead, mix baking soda and warm water to use instead a of chemical cleaner.

  3. Use odor remover. Keep an open box of baking soda. Or just grab any popular odor removers from the grocery store.

  4. Store fresh foods in the front. Make sure they are visible so they don't go to waste. Leaving them behind other items makes it easier for you to forget about them.

  5. Use airtight containers. Storing food in airtight containers will not only prevent odor, but will also keep your food fresh longer.

  6. Label and date your food. Use the labeling function on your Family Hub to quickly and easily label your food. You will never have to guess if your food is edible.
