When it comes to strong scents, although the bathroom often wins out in terms of bad odours, the kitchen is definitely the gold prize winner of strong odours, be they good or bad or simply a little overpowering. Whether or not you’re a big fan of grilled mushrooms, freshly fried scampi or heavy-on-the-garlic garlic pizza bread, these scents can cling to surfaces and leave a strong smell in your kitchen for hours and even days afterwards.
There are a number of things that you can do to help prevent the spread of strong odours in the kitchen, and surprisingly many of them include neutralising the odours with other foods, instead of simply covering the odour up with household sprays. At Price Kitchens we pride ourselves on creating beautifully designed kitchens for all to enjoy. Whether your kitchen plan is classical, conventional or quirky, we can help you choose at Price Kitchens.
When chopping onions or garlic you can rub your hands on a stainless steel spoon as the spoon is supposed to absorb the odour or you can use fresh coffee beans to absorb the strong smells. To prevent Tupperware boxes from smelling overnight, sprinkle the containers with salt before you seal the box.
If you’re dealing with strong odours in the fridge, using activated charcoal can help to neutralise odours in the fridge, although it is sometimes better to clean out your fridge to find the source of the odours. Why not see our blog post on cleaning out your fridge?
