Fight Odors!

Set out a bowl of 1/2 cup white vinegar overnight (where kids and pets can't reach). As the vinegar evaporates, smells will vanish. The vinegar (an acid) combines with odors (typically alkaline). They neutralize each other so you don't just replace the stench with a vinegar smell.

If the smell is in the kitchen, you can boil 3 tablespoons of vinegar in 1 cup of water. (Keep and eye on teh pan, of course).
