How to get rid of kimchi smell in fridge?

Hey guys

I recently moved into this apartment that a Korean girl was living in. She must've had tons of Kimchi in her fridge, cuz my fridge just stank after she left. Tried wiping the inside with water, putting Arm and Hammer and even putting cut lemons inside. The smell is less but still there! Makes me wanna puke.

Any solutions?

Person said they already put Arm & Hammer in there.
I think just keep rotating the a&M in there. Eventually it should get rid of the smell.
From a "Family" reviewer: "We Cheer teaches coordination, enticement to lust, women being used as sex objects, and team work."

From Worthy Playing: "We Cheer is, then, for all intents and purposes, the F-Zero GX of music games. It asks for so much, yet forgives so little. It is actually so casual that it's hardcore."

get an open box of baking soda and use arm and hammers vaccum thinghy where you rip out pieces of cardboard for it to suck more air in. If its an extremly strong smell and you can't remove it with soap and lemon pieces. Its most likely loads of garlic. I can't think of anything else unless she you know what inside of it but thats unlikely.

Did you try vinegar and water? That's a pretty good disinfectant and a good cleaner.

Open up the fridge, take everything out and put it in another fridge for a day.
clean it out, dont put stuff in, put something like squirting lemons inside the fridge so there will be a lemon smelll taking over the kimchi smell for a day. Then put everything back. Don't unplug the fridge. Unplugged fridges smell...

no....




To get rid of the smell of kimchee, first you must do 2 things..............


First. get several pitcher and fill it with lemonade...Get rid of contents of frisge

Second. place pitchers into (inside) the fridge and let the lemonade soak up the fumes

One week later. Take out the pitchers of lemonade, Place some baking soda inside fridge.

Let baking soda, "engulf" the odours..

One week later, remove the "baking soda" and repeat this process for 35 years...


Kimchi smell is a ***** to get rid of.....

I didn't read the thread, might have already been suggested...but coffee grounds.
mix them with water so it's a thick paste and scrub the inside with it....obviously rinsing as you go.
That's what they reccommend for getting the stink out of a deep freeze.....so it's gotta work for a fridge....same materials.
apparently the plastic insides of the fridge absorb the smell.....you need something that can be absorbed that is stronger than it.
