Rid the house of Bad Food Smells

I read this great article on Lifehacker.com on how to get rid of bad lingering food smells in the house. We have all been there. You cook fish, fry something, or burn something, and your house smells like it for days!

In the past I have boiled a pot of rosemary, cinnamon, or lemon juice on the stove and it seems to help. Also, to keep odors down in the refrigerator have an open box of baking soda.

Here are their suggestions:
  • Simmer a pot of half vinegar and half water.
  • Simmer a pot of water with lemon and orange peels.
  • Leave a dish of vinegar out on the counter overnight.
  • Saturate cotton balls with vanilla extract and let sit in a dish overnight.
Let us know if you have any tricks for this annoying problem. Please share with us we would love to hear from you!
