HERE ARE 10 EFFECTIVE WAYS TO REMOVE THE BAD SMELL:
1. CharcoalCharcoal is on top of my list as it is one of
the best absorbent agents that can absorb and soak up the bad odour.
Charcoal is also widely used as water filters and in most odour
removing commercial products. You can put a medium-sized chunk of
charcoal inside your smelly refrigerator for instance, and leave it
there for a couple of days. You will notice that it can effectively
remove the bad smell.
2. Baking SodaBaking soda is also
a good absorbent. Put a generous amount of baking soda in an uncovered
container (the size of the container depends on the size of the
confined area) and leave it for several days. Remove the baking soda
and replace it with new one and leave it for a couple of days. Continue
replacing the baking soda until it has cleared the bad smell.
3. Lemon or Lime PeelJust
put some lemon or lime peels into an uncovered container and leave them
inside the confined area for a couple of days. The citrus smell will
naturally replace the bad smell.
4. Pandan Leaf (also known as Pandanus or Screwpine)It
is easy to get pandan leaf in tropical countries as it is widely used
in Southeast Asian cooking to add aroma to dishes. Its pleasant aroma
also acts as natural air freshener. Just take a few strips of the
pandan leaves and tie them into knots. Place the leaves inside the
confined space and leave them until the leaves withered or dried up.
Replace the leaves regularly until the smell goes away.
5. Vanilla Essence Pour
several drops of vanilla essence on a couple of cotton wools. Toss the
cotton wools inside the confined space such as your wardrobe. Leave
them for several days and you will notice that the area smells nice.
6. Mint Extract If
you favor neither the smell of citrus nor vanilla, you can perhaps use
mint extract instead. Pour several drops of mint extract on a couple of
cotton wools. Toss the cotton wools inside the confined space and leave
them for a couple of days.
7. Fresh Ground CoffeeGround
coffee has a nice, crisp natural aroma. Just put about a cup of ground
coffee in a flat, uncovered container. Place the container inside the
confined space for several days. If the bad smell is extremely
horrible, put more ground coffee. The area will smell of fresh coffee
for many days.
8. Tea BagsIf you don't like coffee,
you can use tea bags instead. Just place 2-3 tea bags inside the
confined space. The tealeaves in the bags will not only absorb the bad
smell but also will release the natural aroma of tea.
9. Orange and ClovesGet
an orange and poke it with sharp objects like needle or fork to form
small holes. Place each of the cloves inside these small holes until
most of the orange surfaces are covered. It may look like a hedgehog
with the cloves jutting out of the orange fruit. Leave it in the
confined area for a couple of days. The area will smell nice with the
10. Old Newspaper and Slices of BreadOld
newspaper and slices of bread also work wonders in absorbing the bad
odours particularly inside the refrigerator. Just place some crumpled
old newspaper and two slices of bread (uncovered) inside your
refrigerator and leave them for two days. Replace them (especially the
bread) regularly until the bad smell is removed.
You can also use
the combination of any of the above tips together, to effectively
remove bad smell. Try those tips and you will say goodbye to bad smells
