Need to know how to deodorize kitchen items? 

You’ll find my answer on Page 40 in the “Woman’s World” national magazine:

Couple of things to note:

There was NO mention of popsicles in the email thread that I had with the freelance reporter who contacted me in January. She was doing a story on using food for unusual tasks — specifically “mustard packets” from fast-food restaurants. She found my blog post: How to deodorize — using mustard powder

(It works for arm pits, too!) 

So, I went to a fast-food joint to get —and then test— a mustard packet, and it worked. The paragraph I gave her got distilled down to 2 sentences — AND — they added the popsicle info. LOL!

Here’s the info I sent to her:

Mustard for de-odorizing
  • 1 packet of mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon water

Rub the entire surface with this mixture, let sit for a couple of minutes and rinse.

Why this works: 

Enzymatic action occurs when mustard is mixed with water and will neutralize odor compounds. The mustard flavor and odor will then evaporate after the enzyme action stops, in a few minutes.
