01/8 Natural ingredients for making kitchen odourless
Cooking is an art and those who are well versed in it are blessed! However, the after-effects of cooking can be pesky sometimes with lots of smells from different kinds of ingredients which are difficult to remove from utensils. It’s not just the meats and eggs that leave a smell after cooking; spices too can make the utensil smell bad. In the Indian kitchen, most of the dishes are cooked using various types of spices and they can leave a smell on the utensils. Here are some useful tips that can help you remove cooking smells from them.
02/8 Use of coffee
You can add 1-2 tablespoons of coffee in a smelly cooking utensil and then add water in it. Let the coffee brew for 2-3 minutes and turn off the flame. Afterwards, keep this brewed coffee in the utensil for 15-20 minutes and wash it off with dishwashing detergent.
03/8 Use of potatoes
Potatoes are known to remove any kind of odour. Cut thick slices of a potato and then sprinkle a little salt over them on both sides. Just place these potato slices in your smelly utensil for about 10-15 minutes and then wash off.
04/8 Use of cinnamon
Cinnamon is a wonderful spice that can be used to ward off those nasty smells from your utensils. You can simply boil cinnamon powder/stick in 3-4 cups of water in the utensil for about 5 minutes. Afterwards, let it cool to make your utensil odourless.
05/8 Use of white vinegar
Vinegar can be called the hero of your kitchen as you can do anything with it. It’s not just a flavouring agent, but an excellent cleaner that can also neutralise the pungent smells in your kitchen. You can simply add a cup of white vinegar in the smelly utensil and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes. This tip can remove even the strongest odours.
06/8 Use of lemons with salt
This is the simplest of tips that you can use to ward off those pesky smells from your utensils. Just cut 2-3 lemons in halves and take a bowl of salt. Dab the halved lemon piece into the bowl of salt and rub well onto the affected utensil. Leave it for 15-20 minutes and then wash it off with dishwashing bar/detergent.
07/8 Use of lemon peels
The citric acid present in lemon peels is wonderful in several ways. It’s a powerful cleaning agent that can also be helpful in clearing the pungent cooking smell. All you have to do is simply boil some fresh lemon peels in the same utensil for 20-30 minutes and then wash it off. (Note: You can even use orange peels in case of non-availability of lemon peels.)
08/8 Use of baking soda
Baking soda is another hero of your kitchen and there are many uses of it that you might not know about! To remove strong odours of meats after cooking, make a mixture of two tablespoons of baking soda with 4-5 tablespoons of vinegar. Cut thin slices of lemon and drop them in this mixture. Now, use this mixture to clean your utensil.
