Help - kitchen smells of feet!

How do you get rid of smells from kitchen tiles? Our lovely net flat smells of feet after we had some friends round last night. Open windows and a quick clean of the floors has rid most of the rooms of smell but it's stuck in the kitchen. I've gone over the tiles with a soapy water, I've even tried diluted vinegar, and yet the smell seems to return. Anyone got any non-product tips on how to clean out the smell?

no problem I was just trying to get some clarification I had never heard that expression before, but can you just explain what "net feet" are...or did you mean wet feet...sorry

net flat = new flat. I don't seem to be able to find the 'net feet' you speak of?

You could try hydrogen peroxide. Use a liberal amount so it will seep into the crevices and get to the trapped source(s) of the smell.

That sounds terrible.best solution does not invite such guests.No legs, no odor. Against smell can use lemon to rub a cut lemon and hopefully help.Hopefully soon you get rid of the smell because it is quite unpleasant. Good luck!

oh if we were sure who it was we would have offered to wash their feet, it's horrible but we love all our friends too much to not invite them!

Well ammonia would get it out but that is a cleaning product. Try a diluted vinegar and lemon mixture(cut up a couple lemons) in hot water...the oils in the lemon should cut through the grease that has probably stuck to the floor.

in the end I did try adding lemon juice to the vinegar, and it mostly worked. the smell has now faded thankfully.

There are countless number of kitchen detergent that you can buy from your nearby departmental stores or shop. You can also choose to buy this products online if you like to. However, I would not stick out my head to recommend a particular brand as I am living in Nigeria and the brands that is sold here is certainly not available in your country. I wish you the best of luck as you choose to purchase a good product. thanks.

I hate when that happens. I have had the same thing happen, but I use Pine Sol. You could try lemon and vinegar.
