Empty garbage cans regularly
When it comes to removing household smells, you have to find the source. Some of your bad odors might be coming from your trash. And it can quickly go from fine to nasty.
Sprinkle baking soda before vacuuming
To deodorize and make your carpet smell nice, mix baking soda and some essential oil drops in a bowl, then sprinkle on your carpet or rug. Let it sit as long as overnight to really absorb odors!
Freshen up your shoes with shoe-pourri
Spray the insides of your shoes with Shoe-Pourri to eliminate any bad scents. Another hack is to spray some dry shampoo or place dryer sheets inside your shoes to soak up any funkiness.
Use drain cleaner
Your sink drains can be another contributing factor to the way your house smells. Glisten foaming cleaner is my favorite way to freshen up our kitchen drain.
Use a linen or room spray
When wanting to make your bedroom smell nice, just spritz the air – or your furniture or linens – with a room spray.
Put essential oil drops in your furnace
Essential oils are one of the best products to make your house smell good – and put them on your air filter is such a genius trick!
Make some stovetop potpourri
Simmer some potpourri right on your stovetop by adding potpourri to some water in a pan.
You can also make your own mixture with things like citrus peels, cinnamon sticks, and your favorite herbs for a natural way to add a sweet smell in your home.
