Removing Cooking Smells After Frying Fish

I tried everything to rid the house of the odor that was left after frying a wonderful fish dinner. The only thing that worked was "Yankee" candle. I used lemon/lavender and had it on about two hours. No spray even came close to ridding the house of day old fish smell.

Boil vinegar and water on stove for a few minutes. Works for old cigarette smoke odor also.

I have tried the vinegar on the stove thing but nothing works as well as the "pure air" candle I just bought from my local Oreck store. They said it would even take the bacon smell out and it did. I also tried it with fried redfish and it works. I think burning candles works the best.

If you will set a lighted candle close by when frying fish (or most any 'smelly' thing) it will remove the smell without it getting all into the house.

After frying fish, I set out a small bowl of lemon ammonia & leave it overnight. Works like a charm.
