5 Easy Fixes For Funky-Tasting Ice Cubes

 

Possible cause 1: Dirty water filtration system filter.

Refrigerator water filtration system filters should be replaced at least every six months.

Solution: Check your water filter. Depending on usage, you may need to replace yoursYour refrigerator owner’s manual will have instructions specific to your model.

Possible cause 2: Stale ice cubes.

If you’re not using a lot of ice, your ice may be sitting long enough to absorb odors from the food inside your freezer or refrigerator. 

Food gases easily transfer to water and ice. Ice can pick up odors from spoiled food in your refrigerator’s interior compartment.

Solution: Use ice cubes more frequently. Eat or toss food before it spoils.

Possible cause 3: It’s your water.

Impurities, minerals, salt or sulfur in your water can transfer unfavorable tastes and odors to your ice.

Solution: Replace your water filtration system’s filter. Second, test your water for hardness with water test strips.

If you have hard water, you may need a water softening system. If you already have a water softener, it may be using too much salt. Consult your water softening system owner’s manual and adjust your settings accordingly.

 
Possible cause 4: Improperly sealed or unwrapped food inside of your freezer. 

Fresh and old ice cubes absorb food gases.

Solution: Double wrap and bag products with weak packaging (this also helps prevent freezer burn).

Use a freezer deodorizer and a refrigerator deodorizer designed to combat strong food odors.


Possible cause 5: Food spills or mildew growth inside your freezer or refrigerator compartments.

Solution: Clean up carefully. 

Check your refrigerator owner’s manual for specific instructions related to cleaning and mold removal.

Want to go with a gentle homemade cleaner? Try a solution about one tablespoon of baking soda to 1 quart of water. 

Don’t use cleansers with harsh chemicals such as bleach or ammonia. They can damage your refrigerator’s interior walls.
