Over time, the freezer develops a strange odor and last night I had to clean it out! I emptied it out and used an all purpose spray (made with On Guard Concentrate) to clean it out. On Guard has a pleasantly mild cinnamon and orange fragrance. I use it on all our surfaces too. When we have company ring to get in the gate, I quickly spray the counters down and wipe dry. I get the sweetest compliments from guests on how nice my home smells.
Freezer: After cleaning out the freezer, I put our food back in and placed a bowl of freshly ground coffee beans in a glass bowl on the shelf. Coffee beans and grounds are known odor cleaners.
