Can Your Refrigerator Kill You?
Find out how to keep nasty microbes from setting up shop in your fridge.
Since air circulates between the cooler and freezer, stinky aromas from expired leftovers or spoiled produce can make everything from ice cubes to cheese taste funky. Wipe up spills and toss expired perishables immediately to keep a lid on odors. A fresh box of baking soda left open on a shelf can help lingering aromas.
Really bad odors? Do a thorough cleaning. Still not smelling fresh? Remove foods to another refrigerator and fill the offending refrigerator with rolled up newspapers. Turn off power; shut door and let stand for a few days. Throw out newspaper and do a thorough cleaning.
