Microwave Soap for Easy Smell Removal

Have you ever fried fish and then the entire house smelled like a seafood restaurant? Easy fix. Buy a bar of soap, but not any kind of lotion soap. I prefer the smell of original Lever 2000. Cost is about a dollar.

Put the bar of soap on a microwavable glass plate, put in microwave for 1 minute to 2 minutes, depending on your microwave. The soap will swell up almost 3x the size of the bar, like a giant marshmallow. Set the plate out on the counter. I usually just put it on the stove after I've cleaned the kitchen, but you can actually set it anywhere to remove smell. In no time, your house will smell fresh and clean. All the smell and oil will be absorbed by the soap. After you are done, simply toss the bar and wash the plate.

It will actually keep the house smelling great for a week and also works if a person smokes in your home or for when you were on vacation and the pet sitter didn't clean the litter box as much as you would have liked. This is an easy trick for an immediate fresh smelling house for under a dollar in most stores. Please let me know if you agree with this tip if you try it.

If the scent of this microwaved soap is so powerful it will make the whole house smell 'fresh and clean', I would be concerned about the microwave itself where the scent of soap would have to be concentrated the most. It would seem that anything cooked in the microwave would take on the scent and taste of soap.

I eat very little fish because it smells and tastes like fish. But if cooking it stank up the whole house, I would have to find some other solution. Maybe an exhaust fan over the stove or a fan in a window, drawing the inside air, out.

I have a small hot plate I've never used. Rather than stink up the whole house and then covering up the stink with soap, I think I would find an outlet on the back porch, deck or patio, and cook the fish there. Easier than barbecuing which is done millions of times a day.

Then too, maybe you need to be more careful about the fish you buy. I watched a television article once. A buyer for a famous french restaurant went to the fish market every morning to purchase fresh fish for the restaurant for that day. He gave several tips for buying fish. One was that the fish should not smell like fish.

Your house may smell fresh and clean to you, but to visitors, it probably smells like fish and soap.
