Q: Greetings! I just moved into a wonderful new studio apartment. This is my first time living in a studio and I have to say I really love the cozy space. However, my closet is unfortunately placed in a door-less alcove almost right next to the kitchen [see photo below]. I cooked something on the stove, for the first time yesterday, and noticed this morning that my clothes smelled faintly of food! I was wondering if you or your readers had any suggestions for preventing smells from permeating my closet area. Thanks! -Sent by Daaimah

Editor: As a former resident of several studio apartments, I share your affection—and feel your pain. Readers, how can Daaimah keep people from being able to guess exactly what last night's dinner was? Thanks!
