Kitchen Odors and How to eliminate them.

E-mail Print PDF

Whether you're frying fish or burning bacon, the smell of your cooking may linger longer than you'd like. Here's an easy way to clear the air without compromising your food.


I have a brand new home but my vent in the kitchen doesnt work as well as I hope it would be. The vent suck up the smoke/ oil and filter and come back out "less oily" (which i don't think it works at all)...

Everytime I cook the smell and oil would be stuck on my cabinets ... I tried to cover it with the air freshener/ scent stuff... but I'd rather eliminate it then covering it. What are some of the things I can do to eliminate these kitchen odor or if there's any products out there that's good?

I would open the window- but sometime it just gets so cold! PLEASE HELP ME!!!

Three things: 1) try cooking at a lower temperature so you are not making as much smoke. That means probably not frying food which is not really good for you anyway.
2) While cooking, cut up some lemons and have them simmer while you are cooking. That should put a nice aroma in the air.
3) Plain white vinegar should cut the smell off the cabinets. Use full strength or dilute 1:1 with water and wipe the cabinets down. That should eliminate the odor.

Another thought - can you get the builder or developer out to see if there is a defect if the installation or in the vent, itself? Maybe it wasn't installed correctly.
