Nasty House Smell
There is nothing worse than having a bad house smell. It can occur from many reasons and you have to battle it on a regular basis.
You cook, clean, have guests over and each occasion contributes to the problem even more.
The question is how to fight it over and become a house smell winner?
Here are some suggestions that might solve the problem:
1.Simmering Stove Water
This is easy and so simple anti-home smell remedy.
Simply take a small saucepan, fill it up with water and add citrus slices, mint or lavender herbs.
Let it slightly simmer on a low heat.
Shortly, fresh smell will spread throughout your home making it pleasurable place to stay.
2.Check The Garbage Disposer
Always clean the garbage disposer.
Check this one on a regular basis since a lot is happening there. Bacteria thrive and give that mildew smelly scent.
For this matter, use baking soda and lime rinds while warm water is running.
It should do the work for your sink too.
3. Use Scented Candles
They always work.
Use them cleverly in places that are perfect match for them. Don’t light them – just let put them near sofas where fabrics will pick up the scent.
Same stands for your bedroom or any other room in your house.
4. Purifying Air Plants
You can always bring the outdoors – indoor.
Try geranium, eucalyptus, jasmine, gardenia etc. There are plenty scented smelling plants you can choose from.
5. Check Ventilation
Use the airflow from there to spread the scent in your home. Put car deodorizers on the slats and let the breeze do its own thing.
6. Use Oil Diffuser
There are plenty on the market and choose the best design that will fit your home decor.
Fill it with water and put few drops of your favorite essential oil, or try to find the best smelling essential oils for the home.
When you turn it on, gentle mist will be created tenderly scenting your home. Lavender, lime and orange are the best ones.
7. Home Made Essential Spray
If you don’t have a diffuser, you can use home-made essential spray.
Find a small spray bottle, fill it up with water and add few drops in it.
Mist around the house and enjoy the smell.
8. Bathroom Smell? Use Scented Toilet Paper!
It always works.
Buy the ones you prefer the most, or, if you have unscented ones already, put few drops of essential oil on a cotton swab and roll it over in the inside of a paper roll.
9. Scented Pillow Case
If you want to have nice bedroom smell you can do some work on your pillow cases. Spray some lavender or other calming smell in the pillow case and enjoy the good night sleep.
10. Scented Light Bulbs
This is our favorite trick.
Before you light any bulb, put a drop of essential oil on it, and when you turn it on, tender scent will start to spread immediately.
Really good trick!
