Bad frying odors: how to eliminate them

A saying holds that if fried, any dish is good. Joy for children, who love French fries, but also for adults who can treat themselves to a nice fried seafood cuoppo, once in a while, unfortunately frying releases bad odors that are difficult to remove.

Even if we turn on the extractor hood or let air pass through the windows, bad odors related to frying could persist in the kitchen. Additionally, your clothing and hair may also be affected. So much so that the most expert housewives usually wrap their hair in caps to prevent bad odors from passing through.

Fortunately, however, there is a very valid remedy for removing bad frying odors. We’ll walk you through it below, and we’re confident that once you try it, you won’t always use it.

What is needed

The remedy against bad odors is very simple and certainly inexpensive. Very often, in fact, when chemical deodorants are used, the desired result is not achieved. In fact, the scents of chemical deodorants do not always neutralize the smell. Rather they cover it by mixing. In short, the result is not always what the product promises.

For this reason, it is better to use natural flavourings, which are easily available. Although these are economic elements, they are effective if treated as follows. First, you’ll need a shallow pan filled with water . Place it on the heat and wait for the water to boil. Meanwhile, cut a whole lemon. Once the water has come to the boil, pour the cut lemon into it together with two/three sprigs of oregano .

The secret ingredient, however, is another, namely vanilla extract which must be added to the mixture, in the quantity of a kitchen spoon. By boiling the mixture for some time, you will ensure that its smell invades the entire kitchen, making the bad smells caused by the fried food and all the dishes you have cooked disappear. If the bad odors have also reached the other rooms, it could be useful to carry the pot with the mix of odors inside it around the house. In this way, the scent and steam released by it also reaches the other rooms.

Vanilla extract is not difficult to find. It can be found in the supermarket, in the section dedicated to the preparation of desserts. We are sure that, after trying this method, bad odors due to frying will no longer be a problem.
