8 Ways to Get Rid of Unpleasant Odours in the Kitchen

6. Take Out The Trash Regularly

Rotten food never smells good, of course, but some products in particular start to give off unpleasant natural smells over time. Think for example of discarded meat and seafood. It is not wise to leave these products in the house for a long time, even if they are in the trash.


Of course it is possible to hire a cleaning company, but prevention is better than cure. Therefore, after cooking meat or fish, it is best to throw out your trash immediately after you have thrown all your garbage in the trash can.

7. Use Splatter Screens

When cooking fatty foods, such as bacon or minced meat, there will probably be a pleasant smell in your kitchen for the first 15 minutes. But after that, not so much. The reason this happens is because of the grease splatter that pops up when you cook something fatty. This is easy to counteract with a splatter screen. If you buy something that can close off your pan, you prevent the fat spatters from jumping out of the pan and spreading over the entire counter. A nice bonus is that it also makes it a lot easier to clean your kitchen counter. Win-win!

8. Call a Plumber

If you’ve tried all of the above, but your kitchen still smells, then it’s probably time to look for professional help. Chances are that something that you can’t reach is causing the smell, like a clogged drain, for instance.


In this case it is best to call a plumber. He will find out what the problem is and will then solve it for you. This way you don’t have to endure a horrible smell when you’re cooking.
