Using Cinnamon As A Natural Air Freshener

September 2, 2015

Lots of home cooks shy away from cooking fish because they don’t want their house to smell like a seafood shack. But there’s an easy way to clear the air after frying up a salmon steak or lightly-breaded halibut. Better yet, you probably already have it in your pantry.

No, it’s not chemical-filled air freshener—it’s cinnamon.  Boiling a cinnamon stick in a few cups of water will get rid of all kinds of odors, but it’s especially effective against fishy smells.
Try this trick the next time you have friends over for dinner. They’ll rave over your meal—and the spicy, autumnal scent in the air.
