How To Make A DIY Charcoal Fridge Deodorizer

In my endless battle against bad smells, wherever they may be hiding, I decided to find a way to remove odors from my fridge by making my own homemade fridge deodorizer.

I've used baking soda from time to time to deodorize my fridge over the years, but have never been super impressed with it. At best it seemed to make my fridge only slightly less smelly and never had as much of an impact as I was hoping for in the fight against odor.

We don't have a super smelly fridge, but sometimes some especially smelly leftovers will find their way into the fridge. And sometimes they get forgotten. And their odors mingle with other forgotten leftovers to product a cocktail of smells so off-putting I will decide going hungry is the far better option than braving my refrigerator.

For that reason, and just generally wanting not to be gross, I decided to try to find a better odor buster for my fridge.

How To Use Wool Dryer Balls

I remember seeing people use dryer balls when I was a kid. I remember thinking that friend's parents were a little crazy because they were chucking her kids toy balls into the dryer with the laundry.

I never put too much thought into using dryer balls myself.  They are just one of those things in life that I would see other people using, but never once considered there might be a place for them in my own life, as silly as that sounds.

Until now! (said as an intense movie voice over guy)

In this post we will make ourselves a super easy diy baking soda fridge deodorizer.

I have already made a diy charcoal fridge deodorizer and honestly I think that deodorizer works way better than this one does so be sure to check that one out before you move on with your day.

And, if you are feeling particularly lazy today(I'm pretty lazy, I won't judge) Amazon also has some great fridge deodorizers my personal favorite is from Moso Natural.

But! If you are looking for a fridge deodorizer you can make really quickly, in like under a minute, and you don't just happen to have a bag of activated charcoal laying around like I do then this is a good first step in the fight against the odors that lurk inside your refrigerator!

Enough intro, let's make your homemade baking soda fridge deodorizer. GO!

Wowables Unpaper Towel Review

I am on the constant look out for ways to cut down on single use paper goods around the house. This time I am testing out the Wowable unpaper towels from Lola. In my search for the best reusable unpaper towels I came across Wowables.

Best Eco-Friendly Wooden Bottle Brush

A bottle brush is a kitchen tool that is usually a ways down most peoples wishlist. However, I have found that my wooden bottle brush has eased the pain (not actually painfully, doing the dishes just makes me dramatic) of doing the dishes especially when it comes to handwash only items.

I have been trying to do a much better job of buying zero waste products. The fact that this eco bottle brush is not just recyclable, but it's biodegradable and compostable make it a winner in my book!
