Have you ever opened the refrigerator door one day and it smells awful? This is because you have not cleaned out the refrigerator in a long time. Over these past few months, you have kept old milk cartons half filled with milk, boxed leftovers from long ago and moldy cheese. This smelled can best be described as unhealthy.

Rancid is defined as the stinky rank smell associated with something going bad. However, two things can break down something rancid. It may be surprising that UV rays can help break down the rancidity. Also, oxygen also helps break down stale smells. Therefore, if you have some horrible smell, the two things to get rid of it would be sunshine and air.
