Taste and smell: Understand smell is a large portion of flavor & eat mindfully

Nearly 90% of what we call taste is actually what we smell.
Use this to your advantage by eating slowly and mindfully.
Savor your food. Smell it before putting it into your mouth. Chew thoroughly. Experience it with all of your senses. This will allow you to experience pleasure, satisfaction and satiety, and reduce overeating.

de-skunking dogs - forget the tomato juice and Listerine!

Mix together a quart of hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda and 1-2 tsp Dawn dishwashing detergent. Add warm water as needed to make enough solution to cover the whole dog. Rub it in well with a sponge and then rinse with warm water. Repeat if necessary.
Keep out of eyes (yours and dog's.)

Painting - Add 1-2 Drops of Pure Almond or Vanilla Extract to Avoid Paint Smell

Simply by adding 1-2 drops of pure almond extract or pure vanilla extract to a gallon of paint and stirring it up and using it will neutralize the nasty "fresh paint" smell. Also, it is such a small addition, it won't affect the color of the paint.

odourless for free

Ground coffee fresh or used absorbs all smell.
Forget pricey sprays, just place the coffee in a open or semipermeable (e.g. Coffee filter) container.
works for smoked in cars, smelly shoes or if your pet had a little accident.
