Are fruits and vegetables spoiling even in the refrigerator, leaving a disgusting smell? A common problem.

Dishwashing sponge for odor in the refrigerator – how to use

Now on the market, there are many special odor absorbers in the refrigerator, which remove the unpleasant “smell” of excessively fragrant or spoiled food. But in an emergency, you can get rid of the stench without them, for which you simply put a sponge in the fridge.

Place the sponge in a container of suitable size, splash it lightly with water, and sprinkle with baking soda. In just a few hours, the smell will be gone.

How a dish sponge extends the life of fruit and vegetables in the fridge

One of the causes of wilted food can be excessive moisture in the fridge. You can easily get rid of it by putting something in the fridge that quickly absorbs liquid (a foam sponge does this effectively).

Simply place the sponge on the vegetable shelf in the refrigerator and periodically take it out, wring it out, and dry it. This will allow you to forget the problem of excessive moisture for a long time.
