Works for Me Wednesday--Newspaper and Tupperware
Well, not just Tupperware. Rubbermaid, or any of those plastic, tightly sealing containers that sometimes hold smells. Stinky smells like tuna. Or onion.
That stuff is too expensive to throw it away, just because it retains an odor. But who wants to put strawberries in a bowl that still smells like cocktail shrimp?
The answer is newspaper. Yeah, that pile of paper you usually use for the bottom of the bird cage, or shred for the ferrets, or start campfires with. It also absorbs odors.
Just wad up a piece, put it in the bowl, and seal the lid. Let it set over night. Next morning, the smell will be gone.
You can also use it for damp, stinky sneakers. Stuff newspaper down into the shoes and leave overnight.
Newspapers will absorb most any kind of odor.
Hmmmm......do you reckon that is why guys read in the bathroom?
Works for me.
