Although we love the smell of a freshly cooked meal, sometimes the smell stays in the kitchen for hours. No matter how much you try, getting rid of the smell becomes difficult. The greasy smell that lingers in the kitchen destroys the vibe and mood of the person working in the smallest room of the house. 

The aroma arising from cooking turns into a greasy smell that spreads throughout the house, making it uncomfortable for the people. To get rid of the smell, immediate action needs to be taken. This smell stays for long hours or even days. Food preparation, especially frying, can leave a greasy smell in the kitchen. The odour comes from the grease you use to fry your food, which lingers for days in the kitchen. 

However, do not worry, as we have solutions to shoo off the greasy smell from the kitchen. Take a look at some of the solutions that will help you get the fresh smell back in the kitchen: 

  • Brew Some Coffee 

The caffeine present in the coffee will not only help you feel refreshed but will also prevent a greasy smell in the kitchen. Caffeine in coffee contains nitrogen, which cranks up carbon's ability to clean sulphur from the air, thus neutralising greasy odours. Brewing a fresh pot or placing ground coffee in a bowl around the kitchen removes odours. 

  • Boil Lemon Peels 

Do not throw away the lemon peels; instead, boil them along with some cloves and cinnamon after cooking. The citrus-infused steam will clean the air immediately. This mixture works as an air purifier and absorbs the greasy smell. 

  • Keep Your Windows Open   

This is the easiest way to get rid of odours in the kitchen. Open the windows of the kitchen during and after cooking for cross ventilation. Closed doors and windows retain the greasy smell of the kitchen. 

  • Baking Soda And Water Mixture   

To keep the kitchen fresh and remove strong, pungent odours, add baking soda and water to a bowl and keep it overnight on top of the counter. The mixture will absorb the odour from the air. Instead of water, you can add vinegar as well.


  • Clean The Garbage And Sink Thoroughly   

Although we clean the countertop and stove top every time after cooking, we often skip cleaning the garbage bin and sink. These two elements can contribute to the smell in the kitchen. Thus, it is advisable to clean the garbage area regularly and put some lemon peels in it to prevent odour. Moreover, clean the sink regularly. Pass lemon water or vinegar through the sink pipe, which will work as a natural purifier.
