How to get rid of bad odors in the fridge, microwave, car, and hands?

Unlike humans, a dog has the ability to separate odors mixed together!  Where we smell "a stew" dogs will smell, distinguish and separate each ingredient contained in the stew. So much so that if a smuggler wrapped a pound of marijuana in sheets of fabric softener, followed by a good wrap of foil and finally placed in a can of coffee, a dog smells the fabric softener, the foil the coffee and the marijuana.

This, therefore, necessitated the adoption of a manual pollination process to ensure a rich crop. The natural, wind-aided pollination of date palms is a...
