Purify Refrigerator Refresher Highlights

Baking Soda

Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate), is a naturally occurring, non-toxic substance that deodorizes by neutralizing odors, rather than covering them with perfumes. Most unpleasant odors come from either strong acids (like sour milk) or strong bases (spoiled fish). Baking soda deodorizes by bringing both acidic and basic odor molecules into a neutral, more odor-free state. Use baking soda to help deodorize plastic food containers that have absorbed an acidic smell like pickle juice or sauerkraut. In the industrial world, baking soda helps control the odor of sewage disposal plants. It is also helpful in controlling odors and around barn and feedlots.

Purify Essential Oil Blend

Purify’s refreshing aroma replaces unpleasant odors with a clean scent. This essential oil blend is an easy and natural way to eliminate odors anywhere. Diffuse Purify to quickly dissipate potent or foul odors and help cleanse the air.

Purify Refrigerator Refresher Highlights


  • A DIY refrigerator refresher can help stop smelly odors2 ½ cups baking soda
  • ½ to 1 cup tap water
  • 15 drops Purify
  • Silicone ice or small soap molds (available online and in local stores)


  1. Combine baking soda, ½ cup water, and essential oils into a bowl.
  2. Stir together. The mixture should resemble damp sand. If necessary, add more water until a thick paste forms.
  3. Divide paste mixture equally into silicone molds.
  4. Allow mold to rest 2–3 days or until mixture hardens. (Time will vary depending on temperature and humidity.)
  5. Once hard, pop out of the mold and place one on a middle refrigerator shelf to help eliminate unpleasant odors.
  6. Store remaining fridge refreshers in an airtight container until ready to use. One disk will last up to a month in the fridge.

Whether you love or loath Limburger cheese, liverwurst, or fermented Baltic Sea herring there’s no reason to stink up the fridge with it, even if it’s tuna salad that’s gone bad.
