Dealing with odors
« on: March 02, 2018, 09:42:49 am »
Hey folks,

I find that cooked-eating folks are reacting adversely to smelling my animal foods (defrosting seafood, high meat, etc.). I personally don't smell anything. Has anyone else been facing such issues? If so, how do you deal with it?

I have to suck a strong peppermint after eating Raw or Rotten Fish before going into Church!  (They find one for me if I have not got one.) LOL!

I heard that it should go away over time, it just means your gut bacteria is still adapting to the new normal.

It's not my mouth... I think. More like the food I take with me. Say I might be defrosting a lobster in my place. Then I'll find out that people can smell it all the way to the stairwell :P

Oh. That makes it a little bit easier.

I'd look into getting one of those ionic breeze deodorizers.

They also make ionic light bulbs that eliminate odors but they use a lot more electricity unless you are using them as a light source 24 hours a day in which case they would be a lot cheaper to use.

If the problem is really bad you might consider getting both. The ionic breeze will set you back around 90 US dollars, while the light bulbs are around $15 a piece. That's not bad, especially if you subtract a few more dollars from what conventional  bulbs cost.

If you've got any light bulbs around the odor source that you leave on all the time; I would definitely start there and replace them. From the sound of it you're also going to have to invest in a couple of ionic breezes too and clean them regularly.

Not sure what to do about food that you take with you. Maybe they make a portable one.
