At times I hesitate to cook some of my favorite foods – fish, bacon, onions – because as wonderful as they smell while they are cooking, our home reeks for hours afterwards. I have four exhaust fans above the stove but still the smell lingers through the house.
One of the simplest ways to combat kitchen odor is to put a small bowl of white vinegar on the stove while you are cooking and leave it afterwards. It is absolutely amazing how the vinegar pulls in the odors, leaving only a faint vinegar smell which dissipates quickly.
Go ahead and sear that salmon!
