My friend Karen said when they cook fish or other smelly food they just sit out a container with vinegar in it to absorb odors.  She told me that the other day when I was apologizing, because my house smelled like bacon.  Not that bacon is a bad thing, but who wants their guest to smell bacon when they walk in the front door?!

    I had been mopping with vinegar, but even though it gets things clean, it stinks, bad. My husband hates the smell of it, so we switched to fabuloso floor wash, which smells amazing and does a good job cleaning, but probably isn’t all that natural. I wonder if this would work for mopping too… I’ll have to make some and find out!
