Make Your Home Smell Good

By  | 

Everyone prefers staying in a place that smells great, versus not, and that is why it’s important to do what you can to be sure your home smells good. Not only will you impress your guests and make their stay more comfortable, but you will accomplish the same with your family as well.

To make your house smell good, here are a few tips……

  • Clean your house. Regular, weekly cleaning will eliminate most dirt and bad odors from your home.  If possible, clean your kitchen and bathrooms twice a week, as those are the areas that tend to smell bad the fastest.
  • If you smell an unpleasant odor inside the house, search for its source and eliminate it. What better way to remove something than to get rid of its source.
  • Keep your garbage outside your house. Only paper and non-food waste should be placed in trash cans inside.  Food waste or other non-biodegradable waste, should be kept outside to avoid bad odors indoors once it begins to rot.
  • If you have pets, make sure their area is always clean. Pets and their belongings can easily cast an odor, so be sure to clean your cat’s litter box frequently and also be sure your pets themselves stay clean as well.
  • Open the windows. If the weather outside is nice, why not open your windows to let fresh air circulate?  Opening your windows allows old, stale air to escape outside and fresh, natural air to come inside.
  • Decorate your home with fresh flowers. Not only do flowers look beautiful and make you feel great, but they also emit a nice aroma.  Put flowers in your living room, dining room and even your kitchen to add vitality indoors.
  • Sprinkle baking soda on your carpet. Baking soda is great at removing bad odors, so before you vacuum, sprinkle baking soda all over your carpet, leave it for a while, and then vacuum.
  • If you love the smell of dried flowers, place potpourri throughout the house, and the strong scent will definitely circulate.  Just be sure you keep containers out of reach of children.
  • Introduce more potted plants inside your home.  They naturally cleanse the air.
