Don’t think it’s impossible to make your house smell amazing all day long, every day of the week. All you need to do is to follow these simple steps and make people envy how your house welcomes everyone with its wonderful smell.
In order to make your house smell wonderful, you have to get rid of the unwanted smell first. Let’s start with this step.
Garbage cans: The most unwanted smell usually comes from garbage bins. Emptying garbage bins regularly is the most important thing about keeping your house smelling fresh.
Fridge: Another important step you should take to freshen up the air in the house is to keep good track of the things you keep in your fridge. Make sure that you don’t forget things that are expired and causing bad odours. Go through it every week and clean the fridge. Store the leftovers in boxes to avoid smell sticking to the fridge.
Fresh air: Let the fresh air in as long as the weather permits. There is nothing better than the fresh air to change the smell in the house.
Vacuuming: When it comes to getting rid of the bad odour baking soda is the saviour. Sprinkle baking soda on your carpets and sofas before vacuuming and let it sit for an hour. Baking soda will absorb the smell.
Air purifier: Another trick to keep the air fresh in the house is to use an air purifier. It will eliminate bad odours and also reduces dust and pollen which makes it perfect for all allergic people.
Musty towels: Maybe you never realised until now that the smell you couldn’t put a finger on could be caused by the towels. Never leave towels damp. After some use let them dry a bit. And never fold towels before they are completely dry. If you can’t get rid of that musty smell soak your towels overnight in hot water and a cup or two of vinegar. Wash them the next day.
Shoes: If you keep your shoe rack in the entrance the smell could be coming from the shoes. We have two recommendations on this one. First, own a shoe rack with a lid so you can keep the shoes hidden. Second, never neglect your shoes. Wash them if they are washable or freshen them up with baking soda if they aren’t washable.
Cleaning: The best thing you can do for your house is regular deep cleaning. Nothing would smell like a regularly cleaned house. The rest is details.
Fragrance: It’s your decision which product you will use to make your house smell good but we would recommend opting for more natural ways such as stovetop potpourri, baking or candles. You can drop your favourite essential oil on cotton balls and place them in some corners away from children and pets. Grounded coffee could absorb bad odours and when it’s placed around tea-lights it will make your house smell like a coffee shop when heated up. To make your bathroom smell good a few drops of essential oil on the toilet paper cardboard. Each time it’s used the scent will cover the room.
Herbs and plants: You can buy a bouquet of flowers occasionally to treat yourself and your house. But it’s always better to choose live plants and watch them grow and bloom. You can also try to grow your own herbs in the kitchen.
Little things can make a big difference. To change the smell in the house start with avoiding the smell that’s building up in the beginning. Because otherwise the bad and good smells will mix with each other and create an even worse smell than ever. If you need a hand on cleaning Justmop cleaning services is one phone call away.
