4. Smelly refrigerators and trash cans 

With a big family, we perceive that our fridge’s are getting smaller due to the amount of food in it. However, this is not the case – sometimes too much accumulated food could rotten up very quickly. If you’re experiencing similar situations, there is an affordable and effective way to make your refrigerator smell great.

On a plate, place a piece of bread and pour vinegar on top until it’s soaked. Put the plate with the bread inside the fridge overnight. The next morning, you’ll notice that the smell is gone.

The same works for trash cans. Instead of using a plate, throw out the trash and place a soaked piece of bread inside the can overnight. You won’t believe how good your home will smell after this.

2. Unclog your drain 

At a single-family home, not everyone will throw out the remaining food before putting the plate inside the sink. If you’re experiencing clogged drains, add baking soda followed by 1 cup of vinegar into the drain.
