I used the Lysol Concentrate Original Scent the brown bottle one with the yellow label to clean our old fridge that had mold in it. it cleaned it well, but the cleaner has smelled up our fridge and now we cant sell it because it reeks of the Lysol. We have tried putting a box of baking soda but it hasn't got rid of the odor and wr have tried airing it out for days and it won't go away. What can we do?!?!?!

I would wipe it out with 50/50 vinegar water!

Me too, and then leave it open to air out.

The vinegar is also what I would suggest. But for safety you may actually want to remove the door, too easy for a child to climb inside and close the doory.

Vinegar as the others have suggested.  After airing it out, try filling a bowl with instant coffee and setting it in the fridge for a day or two.

Odoban it is sold at Sam's or home depot. Works GREAT AND a gallon makes a great deal of it. It cleans well also .

The vinegar should work, but if it doesn't, try wiping it out with vanilla or a string salt water solution.
