Bees, I need some help. I cooked my husband a fish stew the other night for dinner but as i was getting it out of the oven, some how the cassorole dish slipped out of my hands and feel onto the floor. Our kitchen has carpet, i cleaned it up and made a baking soda paste to lift the stain which it has but now the housesmells of fish some bad! I have tried carpet deodrizer, opening all our windows, burning incense and candles. I have put water on it to clean it. I just dont know what else to do! Any ideas?

@kiwichick15: Lemon juice can work wonders. Like lemon juice squeezed from a real lemon. But if your kitchen floor is carpet it might not be good for the carpet, maybe it would discolor it, I’m not sure. I would test it on a piece of the floor you can’t see well first. Good luck!

@kiwichick15: Bowls/cups of vinegar! Just set them in your kitchen and other rooms that smell. It sounds weird, but when our dog got skunked (and ran throughout our house), we did this and it helped absorb the smell.

You can also soak the area in vinegar, let it sit for a little bit, then get the excess out to let it dry overnight. However, I’m thinking you’ll probably have to shampoo the carpet to really get all of the oils from the food out of it.

Lemon is the best thing for getting rid of fish odor however vinegar is another good shout. Always use cold water too otherwise you are cooking the odur into the fibres with warm or hot water which is more difficult to get rif of.

Something else you might try is setting a dish of coffee grounds out in the room. They are useful for absorbing odors.

Equal parts vinegar and water. Pour it on the area, let soak in for a bit, and soak up excess. After use a solution of two cups water, a tablespoon dawn dish liquid, a few capfuls of peroxide and scrub that spot. Soak up excess. This actually removes even the toughest cat urine odors. It has to be dawn though. Other dish liquids do not remove grease well. You need to remove both the smell and the oil. If you can get rid of the oil the smell will go too. Hope this helps.
