Try Clorox Cleanup that is used in the bathroom. It seems to clean up most surfaces and smells. Be sure to rinse when you are done and the fridge will be fresh and new smelling.
I had that EXACT problem THIS WEEK, and this is what worked for me: Mixing 1/2 teaspoon Bleach,
1/2 teaspoon liq. detergent, 16 oz. warm water, I used several layers of paper towels on top of the spill, and poured the mixture over it, letting it soak for 15 minutes, then wiped it right up, and rinsed in plain water. The tiny amt. of bleach was exactly what it took to freshen the fridge, and there's no more sour smell. Good luck and God bless you. : )
Well first I would remove everything in the fridg then scrub out the inside of the fridg with soap and waterthen replace everything..After that I would place a box of baking soda in the fridg for a couple of weeks.
I would wash it down with with lemon juice and warm water and then put a bit of vanilla on a small paper towel or napkin and put it in there. Soon it will have the wonderful scent of vanilla.
Try using toothpaste; putting about an inch or 2 of toothpaste on a paper towel and place it on the refrigerator shelf, if this doesn't work. Use about 2 in. of toothpaste mix into a quart of warm water and wipe down the inside the Refrigerator. I keep 1 to 2inch of toothpaste on a paper towel in the freezer this keeps the freezer smell down (onions, garlic, spaghetti sauces)
and this works in ice chests also.
Or you can order
X-O ODOR NEUTRALIZER
CALIFORNIA VETERINARY SUPPLY
It comes in 3 sizes
X.O. or toothpaste did not work in a freezer were all the food rotted it had to be dispose of
Try wiping out the Refrigerator with Baking Soda (2 Tablespoons in a Pint of Warm Water). It works for me every time
I put a small cup of lemon juice in the fridge for a couple of days
