    I fried veggie burgers in canola oil, which I don’t usually use, and now there is an odor UPSTAIRS in two of the bedrooms. I have laundered the bedding, but I still can detect that odor. My husband does not smell anything. Does anyone have suggestions? Would appreciate it so much. Thank you in advance. Dee

      Rather than simmering the vinegar mixture on the stove, you can use it directly upstairs instead. Simply fill a couple bowls or pans with white vinegar (no need to add water if you’re not simmering it) and set the bowls in one of the bedrooms for several hours. Set a another couple of bowls filled with vinegar in the second bedroom. (Don’t use the same vinegar; use fresh vinegar for each room.)
      If you don’t want to use vinegar, you can use coffee (grounds or beans) or activated charcoal instead in the same way.

    You could also place a bowl of white vinegar and let it sit on your counter overnight and you’ll be surprised that by the following morning, or in just a matter of few hours, the smell is gone.
