When you’re cooking with things that leave a bad smell behind and you don’t want that smell to linger, make sure that the air can circulate. Open a window when you’re cooking or put a fan in the kitchen.
6. Throw away leftovers immediately
Some things will just naturally start to smell over time such as leftover meat or seafood. Take out the trash immediately after you’ve put these leftover in the bin. Prevention is better than cure.
7. Use an anti-splash cover
When you’re cooking bacon or other food, it will smell really nice for the first 15 minutes or so. After that, not so much. When you use an anti-splash cover for the pan, you prevent splashes of fat from getting all over your stove. This way, you won’t get any nasty smells in the kitchen. A win-win situation we’d say!
8. Call a plumber
If you do all of the above and your kitchen still smells bad, it may be time to call a professional. Perhaps there is something stuck in the plumbing or maybe there is a kink in the drain hose of your dishwasher. A plumber can help you to find out what the problem is and can probably solve it for you. This way you don’t have to pinch your nose every time you’re trying to cook a meal.
