Getting rid of the smell of garbage
Like your grandma might have done before you, adding orange peels to your garbage disposal can help freshen its sent. Just drop in a few peels along with some ice cubes and turn your disposal on. When the garbage disposal has worked through the peels and ice, rinse through with water, and you’re all set. Here are some more vintage cleaning tips that work, too.
Deodorize your refrigerator
Orange peels won’t just eliminate the smell of trash but can clear up any lingering odors in your fridge. Merry Maids, a home cleaning service, suggests placing an orange peel filled with salt in your fridge to keep it smelling fresh. Cut the orange in half, scoop out the pulp, fill the rind with salt, and just tuck it away on the back of a shelf.
