cooler bag

Refrigerated bags often give off unpleasant odors before use, which may come from inferior materials, odors from the storage process, or other factors. However, you can take some simple methods to remove these odors and keep your reefer bags fresh. Here are some effective ways to do so:


Most freezer bags are made of rubber or insulated material, and some may use inferior materials, thus creating unpleasant odors. Before using a cooler bag, you may choose to hang it outside on a balcony to ventilate it. When exposed to fresh air for some time, the odor inside the cooler bag will gradually escape.

Deodorizing with activated charcoal

Activated charcoal is an excellent deodorizer that can effectively absorb odors. Purchase some activated charcoal bags or activated charcoal pellets and place them around the freezer bag or directly into the bag, making sure there is enough space inside the freezer bag for air to circulate. The activated charcoal will adsorb and neutralize odors, leaving the freezer bag smelling fresh.

Yogurt or vinegar cleaning

Sometimes, odors in a freezer bag can be caused by food residue, such as milk, yogurt, or other liquid foods. You can use yogurt or diluted white vinegar to clean your freezer bags. Mix the right amount of yogurt or vinegar with water and pour it into the freezer bag, seal the bag tightly and shake it gently to make sure the liquid covers every corner. Afterwards, pour out the yogurt or vinegar and rinse the freezer bag well with water. This will help to remove food residue and odors.
