Fridge Fresh: A New Way to Deodorize Your Refrigerator

Updated on March 13, 2011

Do you keep an open box of baking soda on one of the shelves in your refrigerator? Many people do! Baking soda has long been considered to be one of the best ways to prevent unpleasant odors from building up in refrigerators. While boxes of baking soda can really do a great job at absorbing smells, the folks at Arm & Hammer have come up with an even better option for eliminating odors from refrigerators.

Remove Refrigerator Odors with Fridge Fresh

To better meet the needs of consumers who have relied on baking soda to keep their refrigerators from developing bad odors, the Arm & Hammer team has developed the Fridge Fresh air filter for refrigerators.

Out of the Way Air Freshener

This unique deodorizer for refrigerators relies on the smell absorbing power of baking soda, but is designed to offer better odor eliminating capabilities than a simple open box of baking soda. Instead of needing to be placed on a shelf, the Fridge Fresh unit is designed to hang on the wall of your refrigerator.

Fridge Fresh is outfitted with a suction cup, making it easy for you to place it along any flat surface of the appliance. This design allows you to reserve the shelves in your refrigerator to hold food, without having to take up even a few precious inches of food storage space to hold a container of baking soda.

Increased Freshening Power

When the Fridge Fresh is in place, the deodorizing power of baking soda circulates from the unit throughout the entire appliance, helping extend the freshness of stored food while keeping odors from developing longer. You can also use a Fridge Fresh in your freezer, with the same freshening results you can expect in the refrigerator.

No Guesswork About Replacement Time

One of the challenges with using a box of baking soda to freshen your refrigerator is knowing when it's time to replace the container. With Fridge Fresh, that's not an issue any longer. The unit has a replacement indicator that lets you know when it's time to throw it away and place a new one in the appliance. Generally, you can expect the Fridge Fresh to work for about six months in the refrigerator, and about half of that length of time when it is used in a freezer.

    I like the idea of this....since there is more "surface space" for odor absorption.....I mean, my mother would always dump the box of baking soda onto a plate, and put it in the back of the fridge, cause she couldn't understand....I'm sure it didn't take long for the soda to "soak up" into the first layers of the small 1 inch slot/opening of the box, leaving the "bottom of the box" basically wasted.
