Pensacola here. Only 4 miles east of Alabama but still Florida. According to Alexia the temperature is 38 degrees (expect a low of 35 degrees) so she damn well better NOT open any windows.
In the absence of the female of the species, flap the bedclothes a bit and wave an open book in the air. Otherwise light a candle, wave the lit match around the target area for a little while, and say: “It must have been the dog.”
@pitamuffin I forgot to tag you in this! I got a new job recently (loving it!) and I brought so much stuff in from my box to decorate my cube. So far, the Sega Genesis USB hub is an office favorite. Thank you again for the amehzing exchange box!!
Spritz some ODO BAN around and open several windows. Happens every time i cook with onions!!! Odo Ban is like febreeze except Hospitals use it cuz theres no “perfume” in it and its a disinfectant! Greatest Invention ever. Im allergic to everything, its the only thing i can use. The eucalyptus one!! U can clean with it and use it in ur laundry. Wish MEH sold it!!
For our open floor-plan house, for major stuff (fried fish, burnt bacon, over-roasted brussel sprouts, etc) in the living area: open windows on opposite sides of the house to get air flowing.
For average cooking smells just turn on the hepa filter.
For the bathroom: if you can pre-plan, a few drops of essential oil (use the ones you hated from that set you bought) in the bowl BEFORE you go, works amazing! If you didn’t get to do that, lighting a wood safety match afterwards is unbeatable. Just make sure you soak it in water (from the sink!) before throwing it into the wastebasket or you’ll end up with over-roasted TP smell which is beyond the scope of this thread.
febreze (tide fabric refresher not aerosol and not any other scent) the couch & the kitchen carpet (yes, sad & gross) and then open the windows, either while we’re sleeping or while we’re out for the day.
i always keep the bathroom & bedroom doors shut while i’m cooking if i know it’s a scent that will cling/hang around and leave them shut until everything is cleaned up.
i also have water diffusers in the living room and bedroom that i’ll run lemongrass or peppermint oil through sometimes, or i’ll melt some wax. making a pan of vanilla roasted pears or apples doesn’t hurt either.
