Freshen Your Fridge with Citrus Peels and Salt [Food Hacks]

21 Apr/09

We all know about keeping a box of baking soda in the fridge, but the TipNut blog suggests a citrus peel packed with salt can kill odors and put a pleasant scent in your icebox.

You don’t need to even peel an orange, grapefruit, lemon, or two limes to make this simple air freshener—just cut it in half and thoroughly remove the actual fruit. Then throughly fill the empty shell with salt, place it in a bowl, and stash it in a corner of your fridge. The salt absorbs and neutralizes odors and preserves the fruit skin, while the shell should lend its clean-smelling scent to your stale fridge air.

We haven’t tested this one out at Lifehacker East’s kitchen lab, but there’s a grapefruit looking due for a beta test on the counter. Dig the citrus scent? Check out WikiHow’s guide to making citrus skin freshener, and hit the link below for an alternate preparation of the fridge freshener. Keep your food stash fresh in a different way? By all means, tell us how in the comments.
