Hello Chef James,

I have a Lemon problem. This may not be your field, but, I let a fresh lemon "rot" in my fridge and it has that awful odor of rotting lemon. What can I do? I have tried baking soda and white vinegar and neither have helped. Please help me.

Thanks, Peggy


Hello Peggy,

What you need to do is to remove all food from the refrigerator.  (Being sure to keep the food cold in another refrigerator or ice chests).
Next, remove any drawers, shelves, etc to be cleaned separately.

Mix 1/2 cup of chlorine bleach with 1 gallon of water and wash down all surfaces in the refrigerator, and also the removed drawers, shelves,  etc.

Then wipe down all surfaces with clean water, and dry with paper towels.

Leave the refrigerator door open for a while to let it air out and thoroughly dry.

(If there is any lingering bleach odor, repeat the above steps with 1 cup of vinegar in 1 gallon of water.)

This should solve the problem.

Chef James,
