Q: The guy who lives in the basement of my house loves onions and curry. He cooks with them daily and stinks up the entire house. I’m sure we’ve all dealt with stanky smells from neighbours or our own kitchens.

Do you have any tips for getting rid of the onion smell? When I leave my house I smell like a diner, which is uncool.
