If your kitchen smells a bit funky from previous cooking, here are some tips to refresh your cooking space.
- Use Vanilla Extract.
If you want to conjure memories of mom’s chocolate chip cookies, you can easily do so with some vanilla extract.
Put two caps full into an oven-proof dish and place it in a pre-heated oven for an hour at 300 degrees. The smell will encompass your kitchen as well as other parts of your home for about a day.
2. Use Lemon Rinds
Save lemon rinds or other citrus fruit peels in the fridge for a quick sink refresh.
The cleansing power of citric acid will break up the gunk and grease that causes unpleasant odours and creates a fresh and lemony scent.
3. Clean Your Sponges
A wet sponge can get seriously stinky. Prevent the growth of smelly bacteria by squeezing out sponges after every use and storing them on a surface that receives good airﬂow.
3. Sanitise Your Garbage Can
Wipe the inside of the garbage can and recycle bin every time you take out the trash, using an odour-eliminating spray consisting of alcohol or white vinegar.
Keeping the cans clean will help knock out foul odours before they make the whole kitchen smell.
A fridge can accumulate a lot of unpleasant smells, even if you’re diligent about cleaning spills and removing leftover food before it goes bad.
Neutralise noxious odours by keeping a bowl of baking soda in the back corner of your refrigerator shelves.
