Fridge Refresh


Product Information

Control odors in your refrigerator and freezer longer with Fridge Refresh. 100% environmentally safe, the volcanic minerals (ignimbrite) in the perforated canister act like a magnet to attract and hold unpleasant odors as well as moisture and water vapor. And it's simple to use - just peel the label off the canister and place it in the refrigerator or freezer. In four to eight hours, Fridge Refresh will have absorbed the odors. And it lasts a lifetime - renew the effectiveness every eight to ten months by placing the canister in a fresh air environment for several days to restore its absorbing properties.

  • Volcanic minerals attract and trap odors


Made In:



  • 3-1/4" diam. x 3-1/2" h

Fridge Refresh is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! One of the many Container Store products that I absolutely love. It works much better than baking soda. I bought 2 and just switch them out when needed. I even bought one for my 83 year old mom to help keep her fridge from smelling bad when she can't see what is spoiling in the back. I have found that keeping it on the bottom shelf works the best for my refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This works!! I was a bit skeptical about this product but it totally works and did the trick. I noticed a faint smell coming from my refrigerator every time I would open it. Since putting this Refresh product in, I haven't smelled anything! Also comes in Navy color b/c not a fan of the neon green color. On my next visit to CS, I'll purchase one for my freezer. :) (Forget the boxed baking soda!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than baking soda Put it in my frig and it started working fairly soon. It is a lot less expensive than replacing baking soda boxes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proof in advertising Okay, I hate cleaning and what I hate cleaning the most is my fridge. I come from a large family and have not learned how to cook for one person yet because in my house we did not have leftovers, so unfortunately I get lazy when it comes to cleaning out my fridge. (Don't worry...I am trying to break out of this habit). Recently I went into the fridge and it was not so fresh and I thought about buying Arm & Hammer like I normally do. While I was at TCS I saw this product and it mentioned being better that what I intended on purchasing, and it was right. Within hours my fridge was smelling fresh and has continued to smell fresh since the day I opened this product. I hope TCS keeps this on the market because I not only recommend it to my single friends, but those bachelors who haven't cleaned their fridge out in a while either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What's That Smell In the Fridge? I will never have to ask that question again about my fridge. This little canister of rocks magically absorbs all of the smells in your fridge or freezer, and is quickly and easily refreshed in the sun. I like it so much that I recommend it to other people. Forget the baking soda, just buy the Fridge Refresh and breathe in the fresh, not smelly air every time you open your fridge.

Frost in freezer

Our freezer bin always has ice on the glass door. It’s not that much, sort of like a frosted glass thing. Will this be helpful, since it absorbs water/humidity?
Asked by: RosesRblue
Fridge Refresh absorbs moisture and water vapor to reduce humidity within the freezer and should help prevent overall fogging.

My Fridge refresh got wet. Will it still work when it dries?

Does 1 canister work for fridge & freezer or do you need 1 for each?

Asked by: Mollymo
We recommend one Fridge Refresh container for each space - one for the fridge; one for the freezer.

Cleaning fridge refresh

There is a white powder on the material inside. Would it be ok to rinse the fridge refresh under water to clean it?
