Guess what? All homes have a specific and unique smell to them. The scents differ from home to home. And, like it or not, there are homes that for sure smell better than others. Homes that smell nice when you walk into them tend to feel cosier. Several factors affect the scent of your home, like having furry friends, cooking, and several other things that pepper our day to day lives. Even so, there are a ton of ways to freshen your home’s aroma and make your house smell nice. Let us get into some of them:
Put essential oils into your air filter
One trick to making your entire house smell great is to add high-quality essential oils to your air filter. The trick works because the HVAC system will spread the scent all over the home, leaving everything smelling beautiful. An additional plus to doing this is that most essential oils have healing properties. You not only get your house smelling wonderful, but you also take advantage of those healing and calming properties. Some essential oils you should consider are lemon, clove and lavender. They will freshen your home and offer relaxation benefits as well.
Fix your funky humidifier
If you notice that your humidifier is stinky, you can fix that by adding a few tablespoons of lemon juice to the water. It helps remove the funky smell and also gives the home a lemony scent. Do that a couple of times to get rid of the stinky smell.
Clean the garbage disposal
The lingering stink in your home may be coming from the garbage disposal. To remove the odour on your garbage disposal, first, gather a few lemon and orange peels. Add water and put them in ice cube trays, then freeze them. Run the frozen cubes through the disposal. The ice cubes will help clean the disposal blades, and the peels will offer deodorizing properties. Alternatively, you could pour some baking soda into the disposal and then run warm water. Sprinkle some baking soda or borax at the bottom of the trash can to keep the ugly garbage odours at bay.
Light scented candles
Scented candles are a great way to fill your home with a lovely aroma. Learn how to place the candles strategically for more efficiency. Use high-quality candles that will give a better scent throw like those from TOFINO CANDLE & TOFINO. You do not have to light all your candles. You can put unlit scented candles in your linen closets. The fabric will absorb the scent beautifully and carry it every time someone uses them.
Refresh your carpets and rugs
Plush carpets are soft on the feet. However, the downside is that they absorb stench when food spills or your pets have accidents on them. A way to refresh the carpets and rugs and get rid of the smells is to sprinkle baking soda on them. Let the baking soda sit for a while, then vacuum. Use this method for pet beds and mattresses if they happen to smell a lot.
Decorate with eucalyptus leaves
Why not use decorative pieces like eucalyptus leaves that are multifunctional. They have a beautiful green colour and emit a pleasing, refreshing scent that will make your house smell nice.
The steps above should complement your cleaning. It is hard to have your house smelling nice when dirty dishes stay in the sink for days or when you barely vacuum your home. The tips above will help remove other smells that develop naturally, even when you clean your house.
