5. The garbage disposal

There are lots of ways to clean a garbage disposal and many of them are fairly simple. You can slice up lemons and put them down the disposal with the rest of your food to create a citrusy smell to replace the rancid odor. Or pour baking soda and vinegar down the drain. You can also try pouring bleach down the disposal to dislodge food and clean the drain. Even running a handful of ice cubes down your garbage disposal can combat the smell.

6. The dishwasher

The trick to getting rid of a musty dishwasher is to put a dishwasher-safe cup full of white vinegar on the top rack of the dishwasher and run the wash cycle with no other dishes in it. You can also just pour two cups of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher and run the cycle that way. The vinegar smell might linger, but shouldn’t last longer than an hour or two.

7. The washing machine

The easiest way to prevent mold buildup in your washing machine (and the smell that comes with it) is to leave the washer door open between cycles so it can air out. If you already have mold, run a wash cycle of two cups of bleach and warm water to help wash the smell away.

8. The Fridge

It’s an age-old trick, but it gets rid of that funky fridge smell. Open a box of baking soda on the top shelf and change it out periodically. However, the baking soda can make vegetables wilt more quickly, so be sure to keep it away from your produce.
