How to get rid of Onion Smell From Your Home
Removing onion smell from your home is quite the chore and beyond contaminating your home's indoor air quality, onion odors can actually do additional odor damage to your clothing, furniture, and carpeting as well.
Simply put the reason that onions made our list of top 3 cooking odors is closely related plants to the onion.
(Leeks, Shallots, Garlic, Chives etc) contain thioallyl compounds or more commonly known as alliins.
When you cut,dice, or chop an onion the alliin (an amino acid), is converted by an enzymatic reaction into allicin, this quickly breaks down into sulphide compounds.
Sulphide compounds are associated with noxious smells and odors and this is the main contributor to distinctive smell in onions.
So to put it simply the onion family has earned its stinky reputation because of the chemical change from alliin to sulphide compounds and nicely put sulphur just plain stinks.
