This stuff WORKS! Every time I opened my fridge there was a horrible smell, I couldn't quite place it. I've got a baby on the way so I wanted to only use "safe" cleaners, ones without lots of pesticides and yucky chemicals. I found this recipe and so I cleaned out my fridge and used this - worked like a charm on all those little spills that sneak up on you. I put my mixture into a spray bottle and used paper towels. Now I open my fridge and it smells clean! :) hehe. Thanks, Charishma - this is a keeper.

This worked really well. I also used 2Bleu's idea and added some vanilla extract to the mix. Thanks Charishma Ramchandani for a nice simple keeper. Made for Cookbook tag.

Hi- Thanks so much for sharing! I had a container accidently spill in the bottom of my fridge and did not find it for a month... So I had a scary mess on my hands. This "recipe" really helped me to fix the problem! Thanks so much- I will use this again soon :)
