So what can you do about it?
The answer is as simple as one natural deodorising ingredient: bicarb soda.
All you need to do is make a solution of 15ml of bicarbonate of soda and 1 litre of warm water. Use the liquid to wipe down the shelves in your fridge with a paper towel or clean cloth.
Stop your fridge from smelling in the future by leaving an open container of bicarb soda on a shelf over the back.
It should absorb smells for around three months, so make sure you remember to replace it.
Now it should be as good as new.
