I have to currently live with meat eaters (I am moving in a few weeks once I get a job) in the meantime I have to put up with the enviroment. I need advise from others who also live with meat eaters. How do you get rid of their smells? my flatemate cooks meat terribly alot, almost every meal she eats. The smell then comes right inside my room, and makes my stomach so sore I start to get mad. Also do you keep your food in the same fridge?

Why do you keep posting threads about the exact same issue?



If it's that bad then buy a freaking nose plug or something! Sorry to be so up front but I think you've posted two other threads about the same thing.

Yeah dude. People have already given you suggestions on this topic. Look, these are ALL your threads. Never mind all of the other threads on VB concerning living with meat eaters.

I live with my parents who are both omnivores and the solution to living in peace with eachother is acceptance. Even though I may not like the smell of meat cooking, I'm not going to stop them from cooking it and if I don't like it, i'll just go into my bedroom and open a window, or out for a walk if it's light.

Yes, I keep my food in the same fridge - i have my own shelf right at the top of the fridge. However, that's mainly for my left overs. Anything that is completely sealed I don't mind being kept next to other peoples non-vegan food.

everyone else in my house eats meat, i just generally avoid being there when it's cooking.

also we burn alot of oils and incense which helps.

failing that, just leave all the windows open

My husband eats meat but he doesn't really cook. If he's going to eat meat, he gets takeout or gets it when we're out in a restaurant. So I don't really have to deal with meat cooking.



Because he doesn't cook, and usually finishes his food when he orders in, there's rarely meat in the fridge... our fridge and freezer are pretty much all veg*n at any given time. Occasionally he'll put meat leftovers in there which does sort of gross me out, but as long as they aren't touching my food I'm fine with it.

I often think im the most unlucky person on the face of the earth. First off in saying she dosent have any respect for me whatsoever, and she said something everyone here would find offensive she said ''why do you respect animal, animal is food not real'' wtf what a cow, how would she like it if someone did that to her? and used her as a clonc of meat, she also said also gets mad at me when I cook/make my vegan food, in the sink yesterday I wanted to drain my pasta, her clonc of chicken legs or some LEGS were in there with red blood, she told me to just drain my pasta it wont touch the legs, umm disgusting yes it will. Ive tryed opening windows, spraying my room with countless toxics, but nothing seems to work, her cooking is just to strong.

If your kitchen has a window buy a fan and put it in the window drawing out. This will help tremendously. Put a scented candle in the room directly outside of the kitchen. The fan will pull the scented candle smell through the stinky kitchen and out the window. Designate the top shelf in the fridge as yours ONLY. Nothing else to be put on it period. This elimates and confusion by the other person of what can and can't commingle with your stuff. Good Luck
