Q: I live in a small studio apartment. I cook colorfully, with lots of spices and various cooking methods, many pungent and flavorful. However, this has created a 'miasma' of food smells on my belongings...which I can still smell when I leave home. The scent seems to hang on clothing, and I especially notice it when I open my purse. 

Any ideas on how to eliminate cooking smells, or prevent them from saturating my entire studio? It's making me consider a raw diet!
