Eliminate frying smells in the kitchen with the pan trick

The  kitchen  is one of the rooms in the house most  prone to bad odors , because it is where we cook and where vapors are released when  preparing food.

Among all the smells, the one that “disturbs” the most is certainly the smell  of frying,  which tends to diffuse and does not go away easily.

But not with us! Today, in fact, we offer you  the pan trick  to quickly and easily eliminate the smell  of frying in the kitchen. Let’s see how to do it!


Trying this  tip is child’s play , because you will only need ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry or, at least, easy to find! So equip yourself with:

  • A small or medium sized skillet
  • Some water
  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • A fresh lemon
  • Drops of essential oil of your choice

So start by filling the  pan  with about  2 glasses of water,  or at least  1/3 of it , then pour in the lemon juice  . Then add the  2 teaspoons of baking soda  and about 8 to  9 drops of essential oil  of your favorite scent.

We advise you to favor citrus or fresh flavors such as  mint , lemon or orange, so as to provide a more intense scent, capable of covering the smell of frying. Once all the ingredients have been added, bring everything to  the boil  and leave the pan on the heat for another  15 minutes  : you will notice that the scent released will invade the kitchen and will allow you to say  goodbye to the smell of frying!

NB:  when you put the pot on the fire, keep it out of the reach of children and keep away flammable objects or substances.

How it works ?

This technique works thanks to the ingredients used, including  baking soda , known for its ability to  absorb bad odors. Not surprisingly, it is  also used to remove refrigerator odors!

If, on the one hand, bicarbonate helps neutralize the odor,  lemon  and essential oils, on the other hand, give an intoxicating scent to the environment. We remind you, in fact, that lemon is the citrus fruit that also allows you to perfume environments such as bathrooms!

Other effective tips to remove the smell of frying

If the pan trick helps eliminate the smell of frying in the kitchen, there are also other very effective techniques. Let’s see them together!

Orange and cinnamon

Let’s start with two ingredients that  can bring the scent of fall to your entire home  :  orange and cinnamon.

To prepare this perfumer, you will need to fill a saucepan with about 1 liter of water, then let it heat  over low heat . Then pour  two fairly thickly sliced ​​oranges  into the saucepan and also add  the cloves  and  the cinnamon sticks  or, failing that, the  cinnamon powder .

When the water reaches  boiling point , lower the heat and cook  for another 10 minutes.  Finally, let the mixture cool, pour it into a  glass jar  which you will then place in the kitchen: the smell of frying will be nothing more than a bad memory!

Glass method

The  last method is the glass method! You don’t know him? Let’s find out together! Simply fill a  glass with white vinegar  and  place it in the center  of the stovetop overnight  , so it can absorb the frying smell. The next day, you will notice that  your kitchen will be free of all odors! If you want to make this tip even more effective, you can also clean the cooktop using a sponge dipped in a mixture of warm water  and  white vinegar . We remind you, in fact, that vinegar is capable of degrease the hob but also polish it!


Before using the vinegar on the entire cooktop, test it only on a small part to first check that it does not damage the materials.
