4 Ways To Rid Your Kitchen of Foul Odours

Kitchen Hacks

Asian households have the most delicious dishes which come from the most pungent ingredients.

If your kitchen smells a bit funky from previous cooking, here are some tips to refresh your cooking space.

  1. 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.

4. Use Baking Soda To Clean Your Fridge

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.
