Have you ever cooked eggs one day, washed the dishes and then realized that they still had a funny egg smell to them? You re-wash and wash again, but it always comes back? I have one answer that could help:

How to Get That Egg Smell Out of Your Pans

Vinegar. Use white vinegar to get that smell out. Simply pour a generous amount into the pan and leave it overnight. The next day, add dish soap and clean as usual.

Alternatively, you could do the same thing with baking soda, as baking soda is a natural odor absorber and it’s especially good to combine the two when you have stubborn food stains that don’t want to come off. More on that tip here.

  1. If you want a quicker fix, first rub a cut lemon onto your dish, then wash with soap with your hands, don't use the same sponge again, and the smell is USUALLY gone, for me anyway
