Plastic containers and plastic-lined jam jar lids can become smelly if left closed. Fill with or soak in water, adding 3 tsp bicarbonate of soda per half litre. Leave overnight.
Frying pans with ageing non-stick surfaces can absorb the smell of fish or spices. Fill with water, add 4 tbsp of vinegar and bring to the boil.
- To remove the smell of garlic, cheese or smoked fish from your hands, rub them with half a lemon. This will also remove stains.
- Keep foods wrapped in the fridge to prevent smell contamination. Don't keep root vegetables or onions in there at all a�� they spread smells and store better in a cool dark place.
- To get smells out of the air, halve an onion and leave it lying out in a saucer.
