How to get rid of that stinky fish smell after cooking when you know a candle won’t cut it | The Sun

LOTS of us like having fish for dinner.

But the downside of cooking something like salmon or cod is that it can leave a fishy smell in the house that's hard to get rid of.

And while some people turn to scented candles to try and get rid of the whiff, there are some occasions when you know that's just not going to cut it.

Grace found herself in that situation after having whipped up some salmon the night before, so decided to try making a "simmer pot" to help.

"My house currently stinks of fish," she began a video on her TikTok page.

"And I keep seeing these simmer pots, so I thought I'd give one a go and see if it changes the smell of my house, because it literally is whiffing of fish.

She added that while she could put a candle on, "the candle just masks the smell and then you get nose blind".

Grace began by cutting up an orange into thin slices, before doing the same with an apple.

She then added the fruit slices into a pan along with five cups of water, two cinnamon sticks and some bay leaves.

Once it was full, she took it to the hob, put the lid on and bought it to the boil.

"I bought it to the boil and I've just turned it down to a simmer," she said.

"And I have to say, it's worked like magic!

"My kitchen now smells like an autumnal bakery.
