Mr. Food: Scent Specialist

By  | 

We all love the smell of fresh breads and pies baking in the oven, and the aroma of coffee brewing can make us have dreams, but what happens when it's fish we're frying, or we burn something? Well, that's something else.

And because the sense of smell is one of the most powerful senses with the human nose detecting about 10,000 different odors, we can mask them with scented candles or inexpensive aromatic air fresheners in both aerosol, solid, or the new battery-operated ones with mini fans built-in.

Or check out this really different idea! It's called Scentstories™! It's actually a disc player that has five complementary scents that play one by one, each for 30 minutes! Wow! Or we might prefer an odor eliminator like these aerosol varieties that don't leave a heavy scent, Or, if we prefer to neutralize the odor rather than substitute another scent, coffee grinds are odor absorbers.

Simply place about 1 cup in a container or bowl near the area to be treated, and they should absorb the scent over time. Or a more permanent and decorative way to do that is with this Smellkiller XL by Friesling.

It'll take care of a room in just a few hours. Simply fill the bowl with tap water and keep the disc immersed in water and the bad odor molecules in the air will be eliminated for the only aroma around to be a pleasant "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!®"
