You first need to identify the sources of unpleasant "smell", then take action to neutralize them and only then proceed to clean the air.
Smells in the kitchen can be divided into two groups:
- Natural, inherent in raw foods and ready-made;
- Resulting from improper food storage and improper sanitation and hygiene.
Cooking: flavors to taste
With the notable exception of any food product has a smell, but some have an especially sharp and sometimes not very pleasant "flavor." He often appears during cooking or frying of the product. This "sin" of cabbage dishes (such as soup), boiled dough (dumplings), chicken meat and eggs.
Specific odor have special kinds of cheese, and condiments and spices. Can irritate the flavors of vinegar, cinnamon or vanilla, not to mention the fact that for some people they are allergens.
Help prevent the spread of kitchen odors hood. If it does not, the door to the kitchen while cooking should be tightly cover and window, on the contrary, to keep open (if it is not contrary to the specific formulation of culinary creations). Cooking meals "gamy" preferably in a pot with the lid closed.

If waste is a strong smell and quickly become rotten (eg fish or meat), it is better to put them away in plastic bags left over from shopping, and then - in the general bag or bucket.
Most sources of odors are kitchen cloths and sponges for washing dishes. Canteen is recommended to wash the towels every day, washcloths - put in a dishwasher or soak in a disinfectant solution. It is much more hygienic to use rags instead of disposable paper towels. Sponges should be replaced with new ones at least once or twice a week.
