How to Get Rid of the Aftertaste of Fried Food in Your Kitchen

Rich Southerners and those with sophisticated taste buds enjoy fried chicken’s crunchy pleasure. On the other hand, the constant aroma of frying oil that pervades our kitchens dampens our enthusiasm.

If you’ve ever attempted to make your deep-fried delicacy, you’re probably familiar with the awful stench we’re referring to.

It can be rather sickening when the smell of a deep fryer pervades your kitchen and other places, such as the living room, bedroom, and clothes, long after the cooking process has ended.

Since abstaining from fried foods is clearly out of the question, we can offer a few ideas to help overcome this pungency. Take a deep breath and prepare yourself before beginning your frying adventure.

Then, open all the windows in your kitchen and strategically place fans to evacuate the odorous air outside. If this ventilation technique is not feasible, turn on the air conditioner and activate the stove fan to circulate the air.

Isolate your kitchen from the rest of your house to create a dedicated cooking area. Close the doors to adjacent rooms to keep the odor from spreading to other parts of the house.

Alternatively, you can bake a delightful mixture of butter, cinnamon, and sugar on a baking sheet for an hour at 200 degrees. The ensuing aroma will fill the entire kitchen with the smell of freshly baked sweetness.

Another method involves vigorously heating a mixture of vinegar and water. Add one cup of water and one tablespoon of vinegar to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. For a more natural scent, consider simmering citrus peels or cinnamon sticks in the recipe.

Overnight, set bowls of baking soda or coffee grounds on your tabletop to absorb any lingering odors.

Light one or more aromatic candles of your choice to instantly infuse the air with beautiful fragrances that will overcome any traces of frying oil.
