De-Stink Your Fridge With Oransi!

Oransi Fridge Ionic Air Purifier ReviewI received an Oransi Ionic Air Purifier for my refrigerator for free in order to do this review, but (as always) my opinions and findings are my own. If you want to see more on my disclosure policy, check out the tab at the top titled 'Let me disclose to you'.

When I test a product, I like to really give it a test drive. So I tried to think of something with a really strong smell so I could stink up my fridge.

My mother-in-law is Puerto Rican, and she makes a really awesome sofrito. (For those who don't know what sofrito is, it's basically a finely minced mix of veggies & herbs that you can add to your dishes to give them extra flavor.) Since sofrito is made with a healthy dose of fresh garlic, onions, and cilantro, I knew it would smell up our fridge easily if I left the cover off. And it did.

Smell Overload:

Sofrito in the fridgeAs a matter of fact, the fridge got so smelly after a couple of hours that I was afraid the milk would start to taste bad. I held out for a day though, and soon our fridge smelled like a bad case of B.O. (That's not what sofrito tastes like of course... but the stink gets a little intense if it gets cooped up.)

I decided the poor fridge had enough and put the Oransi Ionic Air Purifier into the fridge.

I thought that I would have to wait a few days to see how long the smell came out. Nope.

Six hours. I'm really not even kidding, I couldn't believe it myself. I've seen sofrito spill in the fridge before and the smell just lingers forever, even after you've washed it. We even have Tupperware containers that we won't use for anything except sofrito because of the smell!

Time for Round 2!

Garlic & onions in the fridgeWondering if something went wrong (aka I was being a skeptic as usual), I chose to do a second test. I heated up a container of fresh garlic and a container of fresh chopped onions, and put both open containers in the fridge for a day.

And boy did that fridge stink.

It got to the point that opening the fridge was like walking into a wall of garlic breath. I put the Oransi Ionic Air Purifier back in and turned it on. Six hours later... no smell.

I still couldn't believe that the smell was coming out that fast... so I went for one last test.

Fish smell, anyone?

I hate the smell of fish. Hate it so much that I can't even eat seafood if there is a fish smell to it. I love crab, but I won't even bring it home to cook or even bring it home pre-made because of the smell that it will leave in the fridge.

My husband however, loves seafood and doesn't care about the ocean-y smell. He loves eating salmon and salmon dips especially, so I got him both and left a little of each out in the open in the refrigerator. The smell made me want to gag, but I left it in there for the required day. Afterwards, I put the Oransi Ionic Air Purifier in. Seven and a half hours later, the smell was gone!


This is one of the coolest little products I've ever seen! I'll admit that I was a little a lot skeptical at first. I've heard varying opinions about ionizing products and how well they work. All I know is that my fridge smells fresher than it ever has, and I don't have to worry about seafood stinking it up anymore!


Over a year since I first posted this and this fridge air purifier is still working great. As a matter of fact, we can always tell when the batteries need changed because the fridge will start to stink a little!

  2. I am concerned that the dust that we breathe will led to some form of lung cancer.I would love to have a air purifier in my home.

  3. I used to suffer from Asthma so bad from childhood to about age 21. It went away for a/b 30 yrs & now its reared its ugly head again. No idea whats doing it this time. I am concerned about our air quality here in GB, WI because of the garbage dumps too.

  4. I would love one to eliminate the nasty from my fridge and further get rid of bad things that lead to disease.

  5. my concerns are with particles of old food floating around my fridge... I'm always wondering...are there or arent there???... ick... lol

  6. I'm concerned that all the pollutants they put in the air will eventually lead to the extinction of fresh fruits and vegetables.

  7. I am concerned that a lot of illnesses are due to overuse of chemicals that remain in our air.

  8. I don't want the smells making other things taste funny!

  9. We suffer from seasonal allergies,especially my daughter. This would help her immensely.

  10. the different smells make some foods taste funny.

  11. This is such a good idea! Sharing!

  12. I'm concerned about how smells from different foods can make others taste bad.

  13. I am always worried when our friend gives us fresh fish and it's in the ice box that it will cause my produce to taste like fish. I love fish but only a certain kind and I know it is healthy for us. My lettuce is my biggest concern that it will absorb odors from the fridge.

  14. Inside the house I hate the dust. Inside the refrigerator I hate when it gets smelly and the food changes taste.

  15. I have an air purifier in 3 rooms, we have 4 dogs and really am glad we have it!

It helps keep food from spoiling fast by removing odor and bacteria from the fridge air and it operates on batteries with no filters to clean or replace.
