Newspaper Kills Refrigerator Odor - Video
Newspaper works best at snaring those nasty invisible stinky molecules that float around your refrigerator and freezer. Just take a section of newspaper and crunch it up like a basketball to expose more surface area and put it in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Yes, that is correct, in the freezer. There is no need to put it in the fresh food section since 100% of the air in your refrigerator circulates through the freezer first. Change it once a week and your refrigerator will be fresh as new.

Same way with the damper control in the freezer, although sometimes this control is also located in the fresh food section.

Just like the thermostat or thermistor control, the freezer control is normally set to the center position.
