    Burnt smell 1st Oct 04 at 6:20 PM
    Hi
    I'm hoping someone might be able to help with a little problem that has resulted from an over enthusiastic cook. and that is the smell of burning by setting out to cook something and forgetting about it :-[ the smell has got into everything and I was hoping that someone might be able to advise of something that could be used to take the yucky smell out????

    thanks

    soak a towel in water and vinegar solution wring it out and then whirl it around your head vigourously for a couple of minutes

    place bowls of vinegar round the room and leave for a couple of days till all the smells have gone
    if its in the curtains then spray with a solution of 2/3rds water and 1/3rd white vinegar

    ;D
