After a Sunday dinner of fish, which was yummy, I put one last uncooked piece on the stove to cook and promptly got distracted downstairs. Bob went to the kitchen for a drink and found the kitchen in stinky smoke. Yes, the smoke alarm, even with new batteries, had failed. I scrubbed and scrubbed, but the oder has lingered with us. Today I called the expert: Ann. She said to put white, not red, vinegar in an open glass, not plastic and not metal, container. It sounded like the routine Grandma used to tell us when we wanted to get rid of our warts, but I followed Ann's instructions to the letter.
That was 4 hours ago. We left for a couple of hours and just came back home. Opened the door.............and you are right if you think that it worked! Thanks, Ann!
