Clearing the Air: 10 Natural Ways to Remedy Household Odors

     Coffee Grounds for the Fridge

    If your meat locker stinks like a gym locker, fill a nylon stocking with coffee grounds and toss it inside the back of the fridge. The invigorating scent of java overpowers odors from fish, cheese, and other harsh-scented foods.
  
   Lemon Juice for Sinks

    To snuff out the odor of a smelly sink, douse it with two cups of lemon juice. A zesty clean sink drain will make washing pots and pans slightly less of a drain.
  
 Apple Cider Vinegar for Drains

    Your upper GI isn't the only plumbing that apple cider vinegar works wonders on. It also blasts away yucky odors that seep up from sewers and septic systems. Pour a half cup down any drain and send unpleasant smells back where they belong.
  
 Vanilla Extract for Freezers

    Here's one cool odor fix to freshen up your ice box. Soak a cotton ball in vanilla extract, then swipe it around the inside of your freezer. Voila! The scent of fresh ice cream instantly replaces the reek of leftover meat.
  
 Onions for Basements

    After a hard rain, deploy an onion to absorb mold and mildew odors. Just slice one down the middle and let it sit in the cellar overnight. By morning, your eyes may tear — though not from the onion, but from the joy of an odor free basement!

   

    Baking Soda for Sneakers

    Don’t ditch your barely worn sneakers just because your nose is ready to run for the hills. Sprinkle baking soda inside each one and let them sit overnight. In the morning, tap the powder off outside and the stenches will be shooed away.

 
    House Plants for Rooms

    Once you've cleared out the stench, liven up your home's ambient aroma with houseplants. Scented geraniums and Arabian Jasmines are two varieties that come highly recommended for their odoriferous scents.
