10 secrets to make your home smell perfect!
Have you ever come home from a long day at work, walked through your door, and noticed that your house smells a little off?
Between food odors in the kitchen, wet towels in the bathroom, trash, and other daily activities, there are many things that contribute to your home smelling weird.
It happens to the best of us, but luckily there are plenty of easy solutions!
DIY air fresheners, indoor plants and some basic cleaning tips are some effective ways to get a home that smells fresh and pleasant.
Light a candle. Scented candles add great well-being to your space and can make the whole house smell sweet or festive, depending on the scent you choose!
Make your own essential oil diffuser. Candles should never be left unattended, so if you want something that doesn’t need a lot of attention, make an essential oil diffuser. With jars, wooden sticks and essential oils, you can make your home smell beautiful for months.
Do a deep clean in your bathroom. How often do you deep clean your bathroom? You should really try to get behind all the nooks and crannies you don’t always pay attention to once a week. Without good cleaning, your bathroom will eventually start to smell musty.
Get an air purifier. There are many things we love about air purifiers, from how they rid your home of harmful pollutants to how they absorb dust. They also help to improve the smell of the room.
Make an air freshener. During the winter, when it is not possible to leave the window open for fresh air, try making an air freshener. You can also use them to spray and freshen covers and fabrics.
Change your kitchen from fats. If you cook, a greasy surface can start to form, even in places you wouldn’t imagine. Citrus-based cleaners work wonders to clean your eye grease, cleaner, microwave and more, leaving your kitchen smelling fresh.
Create lavender sachets. Lavender sachets are a smart choice if you have specific rooms or places in the house that need freshening. Just hang one wherever you want your home to smell good!
Brew your favorite scents. One of the best home fragrances… cooked in your kitchen! Combine your favorite aromas, such as citrus, cinnamon, cloves or anything else you want and simmer them in the pot in a little water, for as long as you want.
Use indoor plants. It’s no secret that houseplants are some of the best natural air purifiers on the market! Many indoor plants help produce more air in your home, while ridding the air of toxic chemicals and carbon monoxide, giving your home a fresher scent.
Scented dryer balls. Eco-friendly dryer balls that you can make from wool yarn, vinegar and lavender essential oil are an excellent solution to dryer wipes and can be used in a similar way.
You can also put it strategically in places around the house, like your linen closet or drawers, to smell great!
