Don’t worry. We’re here to save the day!
Take the following steps to keep your kitchen smelling fresh and clean all the time:
1. Keep Your Fridge Clean
Eliminate unpleasant odors in your refrigerator by cleaning it on a regular basis. Once the refrigerator is clean, place an odor absorber to help absorb smells associated with food. Activated charcoal odor absorbers help eliminate mold and also prolong the storage life of your food. Plus the Sagano Refrigerator Deodorizer lasts over 2 years. Now that’s cost effective!
2. Clean Your Trash Cans
Don’t wait until your garbage can spills! Practice proper garbage maintenance and disposal to prevent unwanted smells inside your home. Make sure to clean out the garbage bins. Take them outside the house to wash thoroughly with water, soap, and a natural cleaning solution like vinegar and lemon. Allow it to dry under the sun before taking it back inside. Congratulations, now your trash can smells amazing!
3. Use Natural Odor Absorbers in the Kitchen
Our kitchen is prone to all sorts of smells. Using natural activated carbon filters is the best way to control and neutralizing kitchen odors. Activated charcoal traps bad smells, allergens, chemicals, and odor-causing airborne microorganisms. Conventional air sprays, on the other hand, will only mask bad smells with harmful chemicals. They do not actually remove the source of the odor like activated charcoal.
4. Clean Sponges
Sponges can be an ideal breeding ground for smelly bacteria if they’re not washed properly. Just ask Spongebob Squarepants. Dirty sponges can even make us sick when harmful germs get transferred to our utensils and dishes. Make sure to wash kitchen sponges with water and soap every after use.
5. Get Rid of Grime and Grease
Our oven, kitchen counter, and burners are a perfect hiding place for grease, food drippings, and other nasty stuff. When grease is accumulated, these surfaces can become a source of unpleasant odors. Make sure to clean these areas very well with a water-vinegar solution. Don’t wait until grease has accumulated before cleaning up, because it will get more and more difficult. It’s best to clean as we go, wiping it down when preparing our meals in the kitchen.
6. Keep Garbage Disposal Units and Drains
Drains and waste disposal units can trap dirt and other waste particles, resulting in foul odors inside our home. To avoid this, just mix lemon juice and warm water and then run this solution through the drain or garbage disposal. Do this at least twice a week, because this simple trick helps reduce both odor and dirt buildup.
Now that you have these 6 simple tips, you can keep your home smelling fresh and clean, quickly and easily! Happy cleaning!
