Even though they are full of condiments and packets of pasta and stock sometimes kitchen cupboards can become musty and start to smell over time.
In order to prevent this musty smell from pervading and settling into your nice produce, there are a few things you can do to keep your kitchen cupboards smelling clean and fresh.
Give them a rinse
By emptying out the kitchen cupboards and then giving them a good wash with warm water and soap, you can get rid of food residue and spice dust which can stink up cupboards if left unattended. In many kitchen cupboards, you’ll get a spill or two, so by rinsing out your cupboards you can also get rid of sticky leftovers which can create a bad smell in time.
Absorb the Odours
Baking soda and coffee grounds make great natural odour neutralisers. The baking soda will absorb bad odours from old produce and can even get rid of that musty smell! Simply fill a small container with baking soda or coffee grounds, poke a few holes in the lid and pop it in the cupboard. Bingo! No more stinky cupboards!
