Newspaper for Refrigerator Odors

Free your refrigerator from odors by placing a folded section of your newspaper on a shelf for five minutes. The newspaper absorbs all the odors and doesn't cost anything.

This works ok because of the carbon in the ink. For really great odor absorber, I really recommend a product called Fridge IT activated carbon odor absorbers.. I've been using for years and it really works great. I usually just buy on line at

I found that by using folded/cut sheets of newspaper as shelf liners that there are absolutely no odors, no moisture build-up, and I can just throw away the paper and replace whenever I want. No more scrubbing shelves to clean spills and goo. Vegetables and fruits last longer, and who cares if it looks a bit odd?
