DIY Natural Fridge Cleaner & Fridge Deodoriser

Is your fridge due a “deep” clean, cleanse and clear out? Take advantage of the cold weather and clean the fridge from top to bottom.

Here are two recipes you can use to clean your fridge with natural ingredients. The first recipe is for a natural, disinfectant cleaner for wiping down the fridge and it’s shelving units. Then follow up with keeping a natural deodoriser in the fridge.

The great thing about these recipes is they require inexpensive items that you most likely already have at home, maybe or maybe not with the exception of activated charcoal. Activated charcoal works as a great natural deodoriser for the fridge as it absorbs odours.
