Brown rice - completely forgot!

Any tips on how to get rid of the acrid smell (largely only in the kitchen, thankfully)?

I also want to save the expensive saucepan - any tips on how to clean it without too much elbow grease ?

Cup of washing powder plus a little water. Leave to soak overnight. Then attack with steel wool. Shifts most things.

Washing powder in the pan of water and let it simmer for a while but dont forget it. No idea how to get rid of smell other than opening the windows wide smile

Caustic soda for the pan, if its not coated with anything eg teflon.

Thanks for the tips. Managed to save the saucepan but the house is still horribly whiffy sad
