How to Get Rid of Burnt Smell
Burnt food, accidental candle fires, and other similar things can cause a burnt smell that stays in your house for quite a long time if you don’t take quick action. 5-Minute Crafts will show you what you can do to get rid of this bad odor.
1. Get rid of the things that caused it.
Put all the burnt things you see into the garbage and put the bag outside. This is the first step in getting rid of the smell.
2. Open the windows.
Freshen up the area and open all your windows to allow fresh air in. If you happen to have a fan in your house, use it as well.
3. Use vinegar.
Place a bowl of vinegar out in the room where the odor is. One odor will actually replace the other.
4. Create a steam deodorant.
Put some citrus fruit slices of your choice inside a pot and add vanilla extract along with some essential oil. Let it boil for 20 minutes. This fragrant steam will travel through your house and add a fresh smell to it.
5. Use ground coffee.
Put some ground coffee in a bowl and place it in the smelly room. They will actually absorb some of the bad odor.
6. Sprinkle things with baking soda.
If the odor develops in your drapes and sofa fabric, simply sprinkle the area with baking soda and it will soak up the odor. Let it sit in the fabric for a few hours or days and then vacuum it.
7. Clean everything in the area.
Make sure to clean absolutely everything in the area as there can be smoke molecules on all surfaces. Vacuum the floor, make sure to clean any surfaces with all-purpose cleaners, and wash all the fabrics.
8. Replace the air filters.
Replacing your air filters is always a great idea as a lot of things that are keeping the bad smell in the room, such as soot, ash, and smoke residue can be accumulated there. Better ventilation means a better smelling house.
