DIY Kitchen Odor Eliminating Recipe

This DIY kitchen odor eliminating recipe rids your kitchen of the lingering smells of cooked food. We know and you know that food often smells wonderfully scrumptious when hungry and horrible when catching up on the latest episode of American Idol with a full stomach.

American Idol + lingering garlic sauteed asparagus = nausea (and not from the colorful selection of off-tone singers).

Steamed broccoli, hard boiled eggs, pan-seared tilapia and sauteed veggies including cabbage and onions are just some of the many, many smells that tend to seep into the nooks and crannies of your house as an unexpected guest for hours and hours.

The solution? This DIY kitchen odor eliminating recipe, of course.

No need for aerosols, febreze or any other artificial odor eliminator. All you need is a pan, water and some essential oil. Don’t believe us? Just try this.
