There are aromas that make us feel at home, such as the smell of clean clothes, freshly prepared food or the scent of flowers in the garden. These are smells that make us feel comfortable and comfortable and that we all try to improve in our homes.
For this reason, you have certainly asked yourself many times how to make your house smell good all the time, right? Well, today is your lucky day: introducing some super-simple tips to fight bad smells and keep your house smelling divine every day. Enjoy!
Keep Your House Always Clean
You don’t have to spend hours and hours cleaning the house to keep it looking spotless and magazine cover-worthy, but there are a few minimums (very minimums!) that you should maintain to keep dirt from taking over the territory of your home, like sweeping, mopping and dusting from time to time. Remember that cotton doesn’t lie!
Therefore, if you want your home to smell good, it is essential that you keep it clean first. After all, you won’t solve anything by “covering” bad smells with cheap air fresheners and incense sticks. This is the only way to achieve a pleasant and fresh atmosphere in your home.
Don’t forget to open the windows to circulate the air and air out your house every day. 10 minutes is enough. For your rooms, if you are thinking of furnishing them, opt for cedar wood, which has a pleasant aroma and is capable of neutralizing bad smells. Alternatively, you can place bags with small cedar balls or sticks in them.
In the kitchen, grandma’s tricks are always useful! Products such as vinegar, baking soda or the use of odor-absorbing foods such as lemon or coffee are natural deodorants that are always at hand. Want a quick tip? Toast a few slices of bread or prepare a pot of strong coffee. You’ll see how the aroma in your kitchen changes in seconds!
Always Go Natural
When it comes to creating different atmospheres in your home, always opt for natural alternatives, such as fruit, flowers, essences, etc. Artificial air fresheners can save us in difficult moments (especially in the bathroom…), but the only thing you will get is to cover the bad smell with a lot of chemical particles that can be harmful to your health.
You can also join the latest trend of essential oils, which will not only give an intense scent to your spaces, but will also have many therapeutic benefits and there are an infinite number of varieties that we can adapt to each room of our house, such as eucalyptus, tea tree, mint or lemongrass.
Natural Air Fresheners
When you want to scent the rooms in your home, always avoid chemical air fresheners, as they contain many elements that can be harmful to your health. Instead, opt for fresh, natural scents such as pine or lavender.
Essential Oil Diffusers
Although the most common ones consist of a container with a candle underneath that heats the oil and makes it evaporate, essential oils are back in fashion and you will find many different types of diffusers on the market, such as dry diffusers or ultrasonic diffusers…
Flowers in the Living Room
One of the most effective and decorative ways of adding aroma to your living room is with flowers. Roses, jasmines, gardenias, carnations… Choose the variety that suits you best according to the season to perfume your living room.
You can also fill a spray bottle with water and a few drops of your favorite essential oil, or add lemon juice and two tablespoons of baking soda. Let it cool in the fridge and apply it to fabrics that trap bad odors (sofas, carpets, curtains, etc.). You’ll see how it works!
