How to Get Rid of a Burnt Smell in Your House, Fast

The smell of burnt food like popcorn, grease, and other items is persistent enough to linger in your home for weeks. Before long, everything can smell like your kitchen. We’ll show you how to remove that smell for good.

Remove the Sources

After burning food, the next logical thing to do is throw it out. Yet if it isn’t garbage day, your trash bin can quickly become the source of persistent burnt smell. So the first thing to do is seal up the bag with the burnt items in it and place it outdoors.

Your stovetop, cookware, and utensils can also hold that smoky odor, so remove these sources and use soap and warm water to clean everything thoroughly.

Start Some Air Circulation

Turning on a fan and opening the window for some fresh air can do wonders for ridding your home of the smell of burnt food. In fact, if temperatures allow, you can leave the windows open and fan going as you try the rest of our suggestions.

Use Natural Deodorizers

Jar of baking soda

Chances are you have some baking soda and white vinegar in your pantry. These are powerful and natural odor neutralizers. Place small bowls of baking soda around your kitchen and anywhere else that has that burnt smell. Warning: Don’t mix baking soda with vinegar unless you want a foamy, fizzy mess!

You can also sprinkle baking soda generously on carpeting and furniture, leave to sit for as many hours as possible, and then simply vacuum it away.

Place a few cups of vinegar with a cup of water in a pot and leave it to simmer on the stove. If the smell of vinegar is too strong, try adding rosemary and other fragrant herbs, a couple of cinnamon sticks, and slices of citrus fruit or lemon juice to a pot of water to simmer instead.

Coffee is another powerful natural air freshener. Just put beans or grounds into small bowls for placement in the kitchen.

Purify Your Air

If you already have an air purifier, you have an effective tool for helping rid your home of that strong smoke smell. Bring it as near to your kitchen as possible and leave it running until you can no longer notice that burnt odor hanging around.

Launder Washable Items

Kitchen towels, linens, curtains, and your clothing can absorb and release lingering odors into your home. For these and other items that smell suspicious, some time in the washing machine can be all you need for a fresher-smelling home.

For extra odor-fighting power, add a cup of hydrogen peroxide or vinegar to the water. Both are gentle whiteners, so you’ll end up with better-looking items, too.

Diffuse

An essential oils diffuser can be another great way to neutralize the smell of burnt food. Place several drops of lemon, orange, and lavender into your water-filled diffuser to enjoy natural and pleasant-smelling air for hours.

Try Natural Fumigation Bombs

All of the aforementioned methods can leave your home smelling far better in a short amount of time. However, what do you do if the smell returns, won’t go away, or takes days to finally dissipate? A natural fumigation bomb containing chloride dioxide solution can be the answer.

Chlorine dioxide, or Cl02, contains negatively charged particles that seek out and destroy odor molecules. When this completely safe and harmless gas is released into the air, it enters even the most remote places, finding and absorbing these odors instantly.

Chlorine dioxide degrades quickly when released, leaving only saline solution behind. There used to be no way to contain and release Cl02 as needed, but, thanks to modern technology, it’s now possible to use this powerful and natural odor neutralizer in one or any room where burnt smells linger.

Room Shocker from Biocide Systems helps to completely neutralize odors in 1600 square feet of space. There’s no need to wonder how to get rid of burnt microwave smell in your house; just open, activate, and let Room Shocker do its work!
