Appetizing Smell Turned into Stench?
Chilli crab, steamy laksa, char kuay teow, spicy beef curry, Hokkien prawn mee, barbecued stingray—these delectable, jaw-dropping dishes will sure smell great as it tastes. However, what if long after your guests have gone home, the dinner is over and the cooking pots have been washed, silverwares have been kept in the drawers, the smell still lingers?
It is definitely something you do not want your guests to notice when they enter your dining room the next time you invite them over for dinner! It is a common dilemma, especially if you love fish and curry, food that mostly leave traces of aroma in our kitchens.
You can always handle the smell problem on your own, but if you find it too taxing and laborious to DIY, you can simply call the help of professional cleaning services in Singapore.
Get the Stink Out
Invest on a good exhaust fan
High-quality quality exhaust fans, especially when set on the right place, can be your first line of resistance against the cooking smell. Today, we have exhaust fans with intake and exhaust features. The fan’s job is both to pull the heat and the smell out of the room. You may keep the exhaust fan on even before you start cooking and leave it open until the party is over.
Get a small air purifier
Air purifiers are devices that eliminate contaminants in a room by filtering the air that passes through it. These devices purify the air by getting rid not just of pollens, bacteria, and dust particles, but also of pesky pet odours, cigarette smoke, mildew, and other bad kitchen smells. Even cleaning services in Singapore recommend placing an air purifier in the house after they have done the tough cleaning job to keep the air fresh and clean.
Buy scented candles
There are many scented candles available in the supermarkets. Some are perfumed with lavender essential oils and organic spring flowers, and infused with air freshening properties. Just light a scented candle and set it on the kitchen counters or the dining table and allow it to work its wonders through the night. Just make sure you put it on a candle holder to keep you safe from fire, though!
Cut some lemons
Why buy expensive air fresheners that last for only a few weeks when you can use some common organic kitchen staples that you could get for just a dime? You might have read about the benefits of lemons to our health, but lemons can do so much more than we thought they could!
Lemons are a good air purifier and freshener. It can freshen up the fridge, remove the fish and onion smell on cutting boards, keep the insects out, and deodorize your garbage bins—even those companies who offer cleaning services use the lemon’s magic. Just squeeze the juice out of the fruit and apply it on surfaces that smells bad. If you feel lazy, you can just cut the lemon in half and place them on a dish near the litter boxes!
