Most people associate chalk with a school blackboard or drawings on the sidewalks. However, it turns out that it can also be useful at home.

The refrigerator is one of the most important and most frequently used home appliances. It is used to store food, but some people put various other things in it. And it's because of lack of space.

A package of chalk can be easily obtained at any stationery or kiosk. This somewhat forgotten item is worth having in your home. One way to use chalk is to put it in the fridge. This will help you deal with a common and bothersome problem.

Most people have probably experienced an unpleasant smell from the refrigerator. The smell of different foods mixing together often does create a nasty stench. It's even worse when something has been left for a long time and begins to deteriorate. Humidity in the refrigerator only compounds the problem. But the solution is simpler than you think. It's regular school chalk.

Chalk placed in the refrigerator will act as a moisture and odour absorber, so it will deal with two problems in one go. It's so simple and very effective. Just place the chalk in a container on each shelf. You will notice the effects very quickly.

Regular school chalk is not toxic, so keeping it near food products does not pose any threat. Nevertheless, we advise not to have direct contact with food. It won't hurt you, but you'd probably prefer not to eat it anyway.

This cheap, home moisture and odor absorber works great. Just remember to replace the chalk with a new one from time to time. How often? It depends on the size of the refrigerator, the amount and type of products stored there. You should definitely take it out when it becomes moist and its color and consistency change.
