Correspondingly, how do you get smoke out of a grease fire?
Regular white vinegar (aka distilled vinegar) is a great, natural remedy for getting rid of the smoke smell and it also acts as a degreaser. Dip a sponge or a cloth into a bowl of vinegar, and wring out the liquid. Wipe down every inch of the kitchen, from the ceilings to the baseboards.
Subsequently, question is, how do you clean a grease fire in the oven? Keep your oven clean and make sure you wipe any grease splatters or food spills once you take the food out. Place a baking tray or an aluminium foil sheet on the bottom of the oven. This way any food bits, spills and oil splatters will fall on them and will be easy to remove. Cover foods that might splatter.
One may also ask, what do you do after a grease fire?
If a grease fire starts:
- Cover the flames with a metal lid or cookie sheet.
- Turn off the heat source.
- If it's small and manageable, pour baking soda or salt on it to smother the fire.
- As a last resort, spray the fire with a Class B dry chemical fire extinguisher.
- Do not try to extinguish the fire with water.
Can you put out a grease fire with flour?
Do NOT use flour on a grease fire. While sometimes baking soda can extinguish a small grease fire (though not if the fire is too overwhelming), flour cannot and should not be used. Due to chemical risk of contaminating your kitchen, putting out a grease fire with your fire extinguisher should be the last resort.
