Here’s a fun way to get rid of lingering burnt-food smells.

Wet a dishrag with plain water, wring out the excess, then imitate a cowboy swirling a lasso for a couple of minutes…until the smell is gone. If there’s smoke in the air from the burnt food, sprinkle a dishrag with white vinegar instead of water and start “lassoing.” Be careful not to knock any knickknacks, mugs or dishes off counters or shelves. Shout out a “ Yee-ha!” to detract from the coughs and complaints from your family.
