any idea what can get rid of smell. how to air circulate in the house?

What smell is that? In general, clean the house with sweet smelling fragrant detergent, open the windows and use more and stronger fans.

Cheers!

Must understand, smell spreads(not conduction or convection)from denser to thinner "space" though a process called "disffussion". Cut a potato in U-shaped, put salt water in, put the whole potato in a bowl of plain water, after some time, the plain water becomes salty.

You can "overide" the smell which u don't want by spraying some "air-reflesher" with smell you prefer - but not soving the root cause. The air mixed with 2 smells with the one you prefer being the predominant. Ppls put vinegar is for this purpose. Vinegar is citric acid which "burns" your lung's cells in long run without yr notice. Charco by whether wood or bamboo, or drying agent like Hippo, absorbe the smell particles, but will reach saturation soon & eventually loss their fuction.

A more "practical" way is to have ceiling fan installed & open windows/door, by "forced" mixing of air, smell will get alway slow (to other ppls' house!). That was why I installed 2 x 56 inches KDK ceiling fans (hall & dining).

Another more "fine" way is to get a $3,700 "water-based" vacuum cleaner. Add drops of perfum you like into the water container, switch on the motor, move the cleaner. "bad" air in, "nice" air out ! Recently just bought one, fantastic!.

Present mkt's air purifiers are "toy", as compared to this Delphin Vacuum Cleaner, multiple functions, made in Germany, adjustable speed, super quiet, but expensive - $3,700. 10 year warranty. I've got one recently.

Baking soda is a good absorbent of bad smell. You can also use vinegar. Also, it is better to install exhaust fan, because it will help to draw out stale and impure air from your home and bring in fresh air, thereby improving the quality of indoor air.
