    My dear lovely daughter wanted to make her own toast, a new toaster was being used. She is only four years old and it is not her first time making toast.

    She had the dial up waaaaaaaaaaaaay high and the burnt toasts really smoked up my house and I immediately open the windows to fan it out.

    It has been over four hours ago and still smell it.

    What do I need to do to get rid of the smell? It is just as bad as the self cleaning oven.

    You can't. Time is what it takes and scented candles to camouflage the smell.
