The good news: The fish and chips you cooked last night was a huge hit. The not-so-good news: Your kitchen smells like the alley behind your favorite sushi restaurant the day before garbage collection. Since you don’t want to banish fish (and other aggressive-smelling foods) from your recipe arsenal altogether, you’ve got to find a solution.

Step 1: Fill a saucepan a quarter of the way up with white vinegar and turn the stove on medium heat.
Step 2: Once it comes to a simmer, turn the stove off.
Step 3: Dispose of the vinegar. Get on with your life.
Yes, the kitchen will smell vinegar-y while the pot is simmering, but once you turn the heat off, the smell is actually super neutral. (If you’re looking for a scent on top of that, try adding a few cinnamon sticks to the saucepan before simmering.)
In other words–bring it, tilapia.
