Although the smell of Christmas dinner really is wonderful, there is nothing worse than the smell of lingering in your kitchen for days on end.

If the smell of leftover Brussels sprouts and turkey is enough to make your stomach rumble, there’s something for you.

The Queen of Clean, also known as Lynsey Crombie, came up with a genius idea to banish any dark odors and it only takes a few minutes.

The bestselling author and columnist regularly shares hacks to make cleaning fun and took to TikTok to share her latest tips.

SheSaid: The question I get asked all the time is the smells of cooking in the kitchen at Christmas.

“Over Christmas these cooking smells are going to get worse, so that’s what I do.

“I boil some white vinegar on the stove for five minutes and then let it simmer.

“This will break up those odors and won’t leave a vinegar smell.”

If you want to get rid of bad smells in your kitchen and fancy trying it, you can buy a bottle of white vinegar spray for as cheap as 89p from The Range.

If you don’t want to open the window and let cool air in, this is worth a try.
