3 Easy Tricks to Reduce Cabbage Smell
Art of the Home Tip to Minimize Cabbage Smell
- Slice of bread: Put a slice of bread (if you have stale bread, even better!) in your cooking water. The bread will absorb some of the odors.
- Lemon juice: You can also pour the juice of half a lemon in the cooking water. This will also reduce the bad smell resulting from cooking cabbage.
- Fresh air: Now whether you use #1 or #2, or #1 and #2 combined, there is no miracle here. Cabbage smell is pretty strong (and gets stronger the longer you cook it by the way) so keep in mind that those tricks will only reduce the cabbage odor, it does not completely eliminate it. Weather permitting, it’s always a good idea to open your window when cooking, this will help too!
