Freshen and scent up your house


Sometimes no amount of cleaning can get that musty stench off your house. No matter how vigorous your cleaning is or how meticulous you are at it there is always something than causes an odor

1Freshen it up

Deodorizing tactics are easy when incorporated into daily cleaning routines. It doesn’t take a large proportion of your time. An easy tactic is to sprinkle some baking soda over the carpets or rugs twenty minutes before vacuuming it. This will nicely balance the odors in your house. Sprinkling some baking soda in the bottom of the trash bin can lessen the trash odor and will keep you kitchen fresh after taking out the trash. Never forget to air your house, open the window for at least fifteen minutes a day.

2Using Essential Oils

An easier way to bring a pleasant smell into your home is by using essential oils. It is easier than air fresheners or deodorizers; they are less toxic and are more effective. When choosing essential oils you must be careful to choose the scent you like. You don’t want your house smelling like mosquito repellent.

You can place these around tiny nooks an corners where your kids can’t reach or you can try a more creative approach, pour the oil into a pretty glass bowl or for a more aesthetic touch go for an earthenware container. You can decorate it with some dust or drop a few marbles into that glass bowl; you would not only give your house the perfect scent but also a good out look too.

You can also make your own essential oil spray. Add a few drops of your favorite scented essential oil into a spray can, add some water and spray it around your house.

3Cook up your scent

Now baking is a delicious option to get that warm cake scent around the house but that takes up too much time. If your kids have gone out and won’t be back soon, keep a pan on the stove add a few lime rinds, cinnamon barks, and cloves and bring it to simmer for about an hour.
The scent will easily spread around your house making it smell wonderfully fresh.

4Go green

Plants are the next best option. Like baking soda they cleanse the air and remove the odors in addition they purify the air. Some of the good choices for any home is a bamboo palm, maybe go to a less cumbersome plant like fern perhaps or a colourful plant. However it is wise to keep these plants out in the night as they emit carbon dioxide.
You can also cut a few flowers that grow in your garden, try using some roses or even some carnations. You can go into a more decorative approach by having some Jasmines afloat on an earthenware bowl, some temple flowers set a upon a glass bowl. You can even try putting temple flowers in a glass full of coloured liquid.
