If you want your house to be the kind of home that always smells amazing, then there are a few things you should probably do to ensure that your place is always fresh and fragrant.
Below are some of the best ways to make sure your home always smells amazing:
1. Manage your waste effectively
From keeping up to date with septic pumping to taking out the trash at regular intervals, anything you can do to better manage your waste so that it does not end up smelling and causing a stink in your home, is going to be the best thing you can do to make our home smell good.
2. Open the windows
Opening your windows each and every day, at least for a little while, will allow stale air to get out, and clean, fresh air to enter your home, which will give you an excellent starting point to make your home smell amazing.
3. Keep it clean
It goes without saying that keeping your home clean is going to ensure it smells fresher than it does when you let your chores slide for a little while. Cleaning with nicely scented products, such as lime or rose, will add to the pleasing aroma of your home too.
4. Bathe pets
If you have pets, ensuring you keep them clean will help to prevent funky odors from emanating too.
5. Diffuse essential oils
Invest in an aromatherapy diffuser and the essential oils you love the most – orange oil is great for a fresh scent and jasmine is a good choice if you want your home to have a more floral smell – and diffuse them for a couple of hours every day. The smell will travel throughout your home and make it smell absolutely divine.
6. Make your own carpet freshener
Carpets and rugs can often trap bad odors and re-release them into the air. One thing you can do to combat this is to mix a few drops of pleasant-smelling essential oils, lemon and tea tree is a good combination as is jasmine and orange oil, and sprinkle liberally on the carpet. Leave for as long as you are able, then vacuum. Do this 3 times a week and you can be sure your home will smell great.
Baking is a great way to fill your home with the scents of sugar, spices, molasses, and all kinds of lovely things, so it is never a bad idea to learn how to bake and do it more often if you want your home to be one of those houses that always makes people sniff in appreciation.
8. Minimize dampness and mold
Dampness and mold can make your home smell musty in a most unpleasant way, which is why you should treat them as soon as you spot the signs, and why you should always deal with leaks in the house as soon as possible too.
A home that smells great is always more pleasant to spend time in, so what are you waiting for?
