Uses for Vanilla Extract

I recently inherited a piece of furniture that had unfortunately been in a fire; nothing was wrong with the dresser other than the smell of smoke. My colleague told me to try this, and it worked wonders at eating the odor! Take a paper towel, dampen it and sprinkle with vanilla extract; place in a small container. I took the container and put it in the drawers, one at a time, for about three days. It worked great!

When we were first married, an ice storm hit our area while we were away. We returned home to find our new freezer full of spoiled shrimp and venison. The smell was horrible! I tried everything to get the odor out, but nothing worked.

If your salsa is a little too hot for your taste, add a few drops of vanilla extract. It will turn down the heat.

To get rid of nasty smells in the fridge or freezer, dirty ashtrays, and musty closets, and/or smoky cars or trucks, soak a cotton ball with vanilla and let sit over night. This really works.
