it stinks in here!

rebs | Dec 9, 2004 09:17 AM

i live in an apartment and whenever i cook, the whole place smells like food for days. this includes my clothes and jackets. the air vent over my stove is useless (it sucks the air up then pushes it out the top, back in to the kitchen!). i've tried candles, cracking open the door and windows, febreeze, air fresheners, and nothing really seems to work. i roasted a chicken last night, and while it was delicious, everything now smells like chicken and probably will for a few days.

i was wondering if anyone has any tricks that work for them. thanks!
