The problems related to cooking smells lingering in the house go back to Ancient Roman times, when people strewed fresh rosemary twigs complete with leaves they crushed by walking on them. Forget about expensive gas-propelled spray canisters though – the smell they make is often worse than the problem. And that goes for simmering vinegar on the cooking top as far as I am concerned as well. Before you rush off and Find a Cleaner, here are a few useful hints you may first like to try.
Extraction fans can sometimes help if you can stand the noise they make. But they use electricity, and extract the heat that warms our homes in winter too. Hardly the right approach to use these greener days, especially with rising energy costs and looming shortages.
My wife and I are lucky because we have a lemon tree growing in the back garden that yields a copious supply of these glossy yellow fruit. We use a lemon sliced in half to go over the stovetop, sink and counters after wiping them down. This disinfects them too, and they smell beautifully clean.
The London Cleaner we hired when we lived in the City liked to simmer half a lemon in a saucepan whenever frying food or baking dinner in the oven. It seemed to pull the odours from the air and leave a fresh lemon smell lingering. We have used this wonderful idea ever since, and thank mother nature and her for it too.
