Open your windows!  I sleep with my bedroom window open every night of the year, even when it got down to -14°.


OMG ! aren't you afraid of home invaders ? Heat would come on , plus, you would catch pneumonia.  My windows won't even open. Modern homes they figure your not gonna be opening them especially in dirty Tx.  

We put interchangable screen /glass door on front door and patio door for wind blowing probaly dirt blowing in too LOL I mop constantly , though.

 

 

@Kachina624   by the way I got my own evaporative cooler thru Q that personal space cooler that blows out to 6 feet.


@sharkky.   Naturally I turn the heat off at night.  I sleep with 3 dogs that are basically lily-livered cowards but would bark if someone shuffled through the gravel to my window plus my window screen is reinforced.  My yard is fenced like Ft. Knox.  I live in a very quiet neighborhood.

 

Let me know how that little cooler works.  It could be perfect for you.

I have an air purifier that is amazing for removing odors.    We eat salmon because it's really healthy but I cannot tolerate the odor that seems to permeate the entire kitchen.  

 

I turn the purifier on and within just a very short time you can't tell that I had ever prepared salmon.  

 

My purifier is a Kenmore and although it was somewhat expensive I believe it was money well spent.   It has a Hepa filter and also a removable filter.   It is large but it really doesn't seem out of place or conspicuous in my dining room.  

 

Like you, I also seem to be more sensitive to odors.   I can barely walk through a candle aisle or go into a florist shop without the scents making me feel queasy.   

 

I wanted to add that I don't use the purifier only when cooking.   I also turn it on to help freshen the air throughout the house.  


@J Town Girl

 

This might be what I will have to turn to.  Did you get this unit here?  If so, would you mind printing the number of it?  Thank you! 


 

@AngelPuppy1, The air purifier that I have in my diningroom was purchased at Sears.  I bought it quite a few years ago and the model #  was 106.83200.    Since it was so long ago I'm sure that model is no longer available but I'm sure they have something similar now.   

I forgot to mention in my original post that I also have a smaller air purifier in the room where I keep my guinea pigs.   I have four piggies and with the purifier going you can't even tell that animals are housed in that room.   

That one is a Honeywell Model #HPA160.  It is designed to cover a 170 sq ft room.

I purchased it from Amazon last year. 

It does a great job but for kitchen odors I like a larger unit.

Have you tried air filters? 

 

They can be kind of big and in the way, but perhaps that would help some?


@mominohio

 

I'm not sure I know what you mean??  Sorry, don't mean to be dense.  Do you mean like a free standing air purifier?  


 

Yes, something like that! Some have filters you wash, some you replace, and others have the ones that wipe clean. 

 

They used to sell them a lot here on the Q.

Thanks for your posts.  I am going to start looking into these things.

Vinegar is supposed to remove odors, but it has a rather unpleasant scent in and of itself.


@AuntG

 

I don't mind vinegar.  I'd rather smell that than cooking odors, etc.

@AngelPuppy1:  Thanks to its exclusive patented burner, the lampe Berger purifies and perfumes the air in enclosed spaces like no other system. Indeed, this diffusion by catalysis truly destroys the molecules responsible for undesirable smells. In this way, perfuming is fast, consistent and long-lasting in a room even when it is large in .

Google it, fantastic results.

I will look it up.  I can't handle strong fragrance so I'm hoping these are very subtle.  Thank you!
