SOURCE: Odor in GE side by side Fridge

Sounds like mold.  I'd try Lysol or one of the other products that claims to treat the odor cause in the air.  Spray a quantity into the empty fridge and freezer and turn it on.  Let the fans spread the stuff around. Try to find the internal vents which seem to pull air into the coils to spray into.

SOURCE: Bad Smell in Fridge

To remove odors:
1. Remove all items from refrigerator or freezer. Throw
out any spoiled foods. Take out removable parts and wash
them and door gasket with mild detergent in warm water.
Rinse well and wipe dry.

2. Wash interior walls and door liner with solution of 1-2
tablespoonsful of baking soda to 1 quart warm water, and
wipe dry. Leave door open and let it air out well, with a
fan directed toward inside, and opened windows if climate
permits.

3. If odor still remains, try one or all of the following
means of odor removal.

a. Spread baking soda out on shallow pans (like shallow
glass casseroles, pie plates, or jelly roll pans lined
with foil) and put pans on shelves to absorb odors, or on
the bottom and in baskets of chest freezer. Leave open
and unplugged.

b. Buy activated charcoal (which is specially treated to
remove odor molecules from air) at some department store
housewares sections, appliance store, or pet shop. Spread
out on shallow pans and put on shelves of refrigerator.
Turn refrigerator on low setting and run empty a few days
so odors will be absorbed.

c. Spread cat litter in shallow pan in cabinet, turn on
and run empty a few days. If odor is disappearing but is
not all gone, replace old litter with fresh litter.

d. Pour several ounces imitation vanilla (not pure
extract) in a shallow saucer, put on shelf and let run
empty a few days.

e. Put fresh ground coffee in cereal bowls inside the
refrigerator and let run empty several days. A slight
coffee odor may remain, but will disappear after washing
again with baking soda solution.

f. Pack each refrigerator shelf with crumpled newspaper.
Set a cup of water on the top shelf or sprinkle the
newspaper lightly with water. Allow refrigerator to run
for approximately 5-6 days. This method takes a bit longer
but has been effective in removal of strong odors.

g. Buy a commercial odor remover, and follow instructions
exactly. Several companies manufacture a liquid
concentrate which sells for about $3.00 for 1/4 to 1/2
ounce. A couple drops are put on a piece of cotton and
placed in the area to absorb odors, in the cabinet or
in a room.

Three of many brand names are: "Odor-Away" by Wrap-on
Co., available at hardware and hospital supply stores,
"SuperCD" IBL Household Products by Crackerbarrel Sales,
Avenal, New Jersey, available in pet supply department
or special products in grocery, or "Clean-Air" at some
appliance repair shops.

Hospital supply stores carry Dow Chemical Hospital
Disinfectant and Deodorant Spray. Spray into cabinet and
quickly shut the door. Repeat.

4. If none of these methods removes all the odor, then it
has probably penetrated into insulation. Contact an
appliance service company for an estimate on cost of
removing the liner and replacing the insulation. If cost
is too high you may prefer to get a new appliance. It
could be used for occasional cooling of soda pop where
the odor will not get into the beverage.

SOURCE: Is 1/4 teaspoon baking soda equal to 500 milligrams of baking soda?

Good grief NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the problem with DIY conversions from volume to weight. Your ASSUMPTION gives you 400 times the dose!!!!

A quarter teaspoon is approximately 1.25 grams (1 1/4 grams)

Work in spoons and cups (measures of volume), or work in grams, or pounds and ounces (measure of weight).

How many teaspoons of baking powder equals one teaspoon of baking soda?


I'm by no means a baker, but the two are different. However, you can substitute, but you may not get what you are looking for and have to modify the recipe in other ways.

Generally, you will need 3 teaspoons of baking powder to equal a teaspoon of baking soda. But the baking soda is a base, and the baking powder is more neutral, so you may have to reduce the amount of acid in the recipe.

The following article explains it well.

Kenmore refer vegtables have water on them


Not to worry. It's normal. Shake the water off the veggies before you use them. If it bothers you, bag the veggies in sandwich bags (or larger size zipper lock baggies, if appropriate). Inside the bag, put in a paper towel or two. If there is a smell developing, get a small box of baking soda (not baking powder), open it, and leave it in the refer for a half year before you replace it. Good luck!

Gas smell in coleman cooler


Clearly someone used the cooler to dump gasoline that was probably old. That odor is extremely difficult to get out. First try this: Let it air out indirect sunlight, tilting the cooler so the sunlight gets to the inside, Do this for at least three days and as much as a week. After you've done that, there will likely still be some of the gasoline smell still there but it should be a lot less noticeable.

Next, get a large box or even a bag of baking soda. Make sure the drain plug is in and dump at least two cups of baking soda in the bottom of the cooler.

Add enough water to make a paste of the baking soda. The paste should be thick enough to smear and stick to the walls of the cooler. Do that...smear it on, completely covering the walls, bottom and inside of the top of the cooler.

If you run out of paste make a little more but make sure that every part of the inside of the cooler is covered with paste. Leave the paste on for a minimum of 24 hours but preferably 48 hours or more. Shut the lid to slow down drying of the paste.

After 24 hours or more, check to see if any odor remains. If it does, wait another 24 hours. After 48 hours, the baking soda will likely have done as much as it's going to do. Rinse the dried baking soda off the walls bottom and top, letting the residue collect in the water that is filling the cooler.

Add the remaining baking soda in the box or bag to the water stirring it until it has dissolved. Fill the cooler to the top with water and close the lid. Wait 24 hours then drain the cooler. If you're lucky the odor, or most of it, will be gone.

This is a slow tedious process but it can work. I've never tried it on gasoline odor but I used it forplastic pickle buckets and it's never gotten the odor completely out but it has gotten enough out to make the bucket usable. Good luck!

Need directions to clean my tappan oven


1. Add baking soda to a cool oven. Sprinkle a thick layer of baking soda onto the bottom of the oven. Make sure the oven is completely cool before you attempt to do this. 2. Spray the baking soda with water. Using a spray bottle, spray the baking soda down until it is damp, not saturated. The water and baking soda together will help break down the food particles. 3. Continue spraying baking soda as it dries out. Every few hours spray the baking soda down again to keep it moist. Continue this process over several hours, spraying water as the baking soda begins to dry out. 4. Scrape out the baking soda. Scrape the baking soda out of the oven. Food residue will be scraped out with the baking soda. 5. Rinse the bottom of the oven out thoroughly. Yes, you'll still have to rinse out the oven, but next time you cook your food won't have an added taste of oven cleaner.

If I had the rest of your model number I may find what Tappan now Fridgedaire Electrolux reccomends, but this is the least toxic. Have a great day..

How clean oven??


  1. Buy an empty spray bottle and some baking soda.
    You'll find that baking soda is cheap -- especially if you buy in bulk.
  2. Using a funnel, place 3 heaping teaspoons of baking soda into the spray bottle.
    If the baking soda clogs the funnel, unclog it with water.
  3. Wash the baking soda into the spray bottle by running water into the funnel.
    Fill the bottle with water. After the bottle fills, you'll notice undissolved baking soda that has settled at the bottom of the bottle.
  4. Shake the spray bottle so that all the baking soda dissolves in the water.
    Unless all the baking soda is fully dissolved, some of it gets left behind in the bottom of the bottle as a residue.
  5. When the oven is cold, spray the baking soda and water solution on to the black stuff. Do this one or more times a day.
    It is important to work on a cold oven for two reasons:
    • Safety. You can't burn your hands if the oven is cold.
    • Containment. You'll get baking soda all over the house if you start with a hot oven. I know. I've done it.
      Starting with a cold oven solves the problem.
  6. Use your oven as you normally would. Keep spraying wet baking soda on to the top and sides of the interior of the oven between meals.
    Wet baking soda will break up the carbon sticking to the sides of the oven. Keep spraying baking soda on to the black stuff between meals until it is all gone.
    Don't worry about getting baking soda in your food. Baking soda is one of the prime ingredients of many recipes such as corn bread. It is safe to add it to your food should you do so inadvertently.
    Using this technique, the black carbon that was stuck to the sides of your oven will flow to the floor of your oven and settle there as a black carbon powder that can be wiped away.
    Your oven will look like a mess while this is in process. Choose a good time to do this.
  7. At your convenience, when the oven is cold, wipe your oven with a damp cloth.
    Eventually, you will have to wipe down your whole oven with a damp cloth. The black carbon and baking soda will will settle together on the bottom of your oven. Both are easily removed with a damp cloth.
    In theory, you will have to apply the spray bottle many times but you should only have to wipe down your oven once. Try not to wipe down the oven prematurely as this removes the active ingredient that makes the whole thing work -- the baking soda.
    Important! Let the baking soda accumulate so that it can do its job.
  8. Repeat, repeat, repeat until all the black carbon is gone.
