View Full Version : going to hide today

I think I will lock myself in my sewing room for the day.

Already had a busy day--snow cleared, refrigerator emptied and airing out-it still stinks and we have tried everything so thought we would empty it out and let it sit open to see if that helps-beds stripped and sheets in dryer so soon it is me time for most of the day.

I am rather anxious to begin my Starry Nights quilt.

Wipe that fridge down with baking soda/water, as much as you can get to dissolve in warm water, then immediately spray with vinegar. Let it sit a couple hours, then wipe it down again with water.

Sounds like a wonderful plan to sew all day.

I think I read somewhere that putting a open box with coffee in the fridge takes ugly smells away. Maybe it's worth a try.

Try using mouthwash to wash it down with. My aunt had a rental and thought that they would have to get rid of the fridge it was so bad. Tried everything and finally it was the mouthwash that worked.

I was just going to suggest what shirlyeknot suggested to get the fridge clean and great smelling. After you do that, put a NEW box of Baking Soda in the fridge ( I always put it in the very back of the fridge, and I always cut the complete top off too. I change my Baking Soda a little more often than most people do, I change it about every 1-2 months. When I change it, I then pour the "OLD" baking soda( 2-3 teaspoons ) down all the drains in the house....and follow that with about 1/2 cup of vinegar for each drain.

My older refrigerator had a drip pan under the frig that had collected who knows what and it dried out, but left a smell that was awful. Cleaned that with vinegar and sprinkled baking soda and it helped a lot. Good luck. All the above suggestions work great.
