This article provides tips on how to get rid of fish smell in your house or kitchen and prevent it in the first place.

The article provides tips on preventing fishy cooking odors, such as purchasing the freshest fish, rinsing the fish in cold water, soaking it in milk, cooking it with an acid, and using kitchen hood vents and opening windows while cooking. The article also provides tips on how to remove fish smell from your home, such as storing leftovers in tightly sealed containers, cleaning the kitchen immediately after cooking, diffusing citrus essential oils, and baking something sweet.
