Baking soda in a fridge helps to absorb odors in the fridge.

Placing a box of baking soda in your fridges allows the odors and smelly particles to bond with the baking soda instead of other food in the fridge.

The unique characteristics of sodium bicarbonate make baking soda attractive to acidic and base particles and once they bond with the baking soda the odor is then neutralized.

keeping baking soda in the fridge is a quick and easy way to ensure the fridge smells crisp and clean—even if you have trouble knowing how long food lasts in the fridge before it starts to stink.

Given enough surface area, baking soda will react with acids circulating in the fridge.

Baking soda can also help keep moisture out of the fridge.

Condensation and excess moisture can be a problem in refrigerators, as they can lead to the growth of mold and mildew.

Baking soda has moisture-absorbing properties, which can help regulate humidity levels inside your fridge.
