Did you grow up with the box of baking soda in your refrigerator? Promises of keeping your refrigerator odor free? This is one of the things that I never actually bought into, maybe because I just forget to purchase a box or because my refrigerator never seems to have an odor unless I happen to find a forgotten vegetable that is past its prime.
Baking Soda Myth or Fact: For the purpose of this review I decided to try to do some research on whether using a box of baking soda is a myth or fact? My findings were inconclusive. I found many sites that state that it does indeed help,
I also found a site that disagrees:
My own conclusion from my reading is that baking soda DOES help but only moderately. There are better solutions out there if you are looking for a fridge air purifier.
I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing an Ionic Fridge Air Purifier from Oransi. I was actually surprised at how small it was but in truth I was very glad. Who wants a large bulky item in their fridge!
It is hard to actually review the effectiveness of the fridge air purifier only because my refrigerator never tends to smell. However I do remember a few days after I put it in the fridge saying the fridge just seemed fresh. I actually love having it in the fridge, I don’t know if it is the “thought” that it is fresh or because it is really keeping it fresh. I tend to clean out my fridge once a week or so when I go grocery shopping. This is because with six people in our house I’m lucky to have enough room for my groceries. So each week before I put the new weeks groceries away I end up going through and cleaning out anything old. So nothing really gets a chance to smell or rot.
The air purifier is soundless, you really don’t know it is there. There was little instructions with it beyond explaining the light and installing batteries so I don’t know if one place is better then the other when putting it in the fridge. Mine is right up front. You can also see clearly in this photo the size as it is compared to a soda can there on the left.
