when you cook food, do the food particles in the air settle on your stuff?

October 19, 2008 3:37am CST
I just started cooking in a rather enclosed space with no overhead fan(we just have a loose skillet,no oven).The space smells a lot like what was cooked for hours. Do all those food particles in the air eventually settle down on my stuff. I don't really want everything I own to smell like old food eventually. Any advice would be helpful.

No, everything you own won't smell like old food eventually. I do know what you're saying though. We cooked bacon yesterday and the house smelled like it. We had to run some errands, got in the car, and you could smell the bacon on our clothes! I think this is just an odor, not actual food particles. Eventually it all airs out and goes away!
