Is it warm enough to open windows? Fresh spring air might do some good!

Maybe Febreeze would help?

Opening the windows is a great idea. Another thing I might suggest is getting a really good candle in a stronger/different scent from the “food type” scents. When my husband and I first moved in together, the apartment we ended up going with had kind of a strange (not necessarily bad) smell to it. So, I bought a Lemon Lavender Yankee candle and let it burn for several hours; I think the herbal smell was strong enough and helped a lot.

have you tried leaving some open baking soda out? that’s great for getting the smell out of things! Try putting a bowl of it out here and there

I’m not fond of the smell of maple, and I find that even the most subtle smell of it is strong to me. There have been times when someone has something maple smelling at the office, and I find the smell stays with me ALL day. I’m glad to hear it’s starting to die down!

Whenever we make fish at home it seems to really stink up the house.

So to get rid of the smell, in a saucepan, I boil a mixture of 1/2 water, 1/2 white vinegar, a few orange slices, and a cinnamon stick. Makes the house smell lovely and eats away the fishy smell!

You can use just the water and vinegar if you’d like, works just as good to kill the nasty smell. But adding some citrus, vanilla, cinnamon stick, rosemary sprigs, or other herbs will make it smell even better.
