There’s no denying that everyone loves a nice-smelling house. Whether it’s the smell of baking coming from the kitchen or the scent of fresh linen while the laundry dries, everyone wants a home that smells pleasant.
Fortunately, it’s not too difficult to make your home smell delicious. As long as you keep it clean from top to toe, the following tips will have your house smelling amazing in no time at all.
Keep carpets and rugs fresh
You’d be amazed by how much carpets and rugs absorb and trap smells. Therefore, it’s important to give them a refresh every so often. To freshen up your carpet and get rid of any smells, simply sprinkle baking soda over it and let it sit for a few hours before vacuuming. A good carpet cleaner will also help to get rid of any stains and smells.
Invest in scented candles
Scented candles are an easy way to make your home smell delicious while creating some atmosphere too. Today, candles are available in just about every scent, from toffee apples and lavender to fresh linen and ‘Christmas’ (we know, weird right?). Stock up on a few scented candles to light around the house when you want an extra boost of nice-smelling loveliness.
Turn to nature
Plants don’t just look pretty in your home; they also offer an array of different benefits too. Indoor plants clean the air, making the air you breathe fresher and cleaner. Many plants also have pleasant fragrances too, such as jasmine, gardenias or eucalyptus. Whether it’s a fresh vase of flowers on the dining table or a beautiful potted plant in the window, bringing the outdoors in can make your house smell amazing.
Simmer fruits and herbs on the stove
If you feel like getting a little bit crafty and you really want to make a difference to the way your house smells, consider simmering water with fruits and herbs on the stove. Citrus slices such as orange and lemon and herbs like lavender and mint will make your home smell amazing; simply leave them simmering for a while until your whole house smells good enough to eat.
