Full Answer

  1. Date one box of baking soda

    Date the box of baking soda before opening it. This serves as a reminder of when the box should be replaced.

  2. Mix baking soda and water

    Open the box of baking soda and create a mixture of one part baking soda to three parts water. Stir well to ensure that the baking soda completely dissolves.

  3. Clean the inside of the freezer

    Empty the contents of the freezer. Use a clean rag and the baking soda and water mixture to thoroughly clean the inside of the freezer.

  4. Place opened box of baking soda in the freezer

    Once the freezer is clean, place the open box of baking soda inside. The baking soda works to absorb any existing odors and any new ones that may develop.

  5. Repeat this process regularly

    To help prevent odors from returning, repeat this process every three months. If the baking soda becomes odorous, it should be changed sooner.
