Eliminate Odor in the Kitchen

Our kitchen is one of the places around our house that we spend most of our time. After sometime, odors will be noticeable in the fridge, stove tops, sink, and walls. Lemon, baking soda, vinegar, coal and water are some of the things that we can find easily around the kitchen and overhead cabinets.

First of all, you need to remove the things that possibly the cause of the smell. Remove spoiled food especially those that are kept in the container, get your trash out and start cleaning. When dealing with oil spills, use a damp cloth and use a degreaser to wipe on your stove and around it, walls and floor. If you have an exhaust system, do the same. Do this at least every other day making sure that there’s no greasy feeling when you run a finger on it.

To eliminate the odor, keeping the exhaust fan on while cooking, do most of the trick. You can simmer lemon and vinegar with water. Place coals on a shallow bowl around the kitchen, this absorbs and neutralize the odor. The use of air fresheners, scented candles, coffee beans and potpourri will only be effective once the strong odor has been eliminated.
