Breathe Easy: How to Make Your Home Smell Fantastic

Written by 

There’s nothing like opening the door to your house and being greeted with a great smell. Whether you prefer a clean, fresh smell or a lovely scent, that moment in the half-open door instantly relaxes you.

If your house hasn’t been smelling too fresh lately, it’s time to make that moment happen for you! The first step is a real house cleaning. If you don’t have time for a thorough cleaning, that’s okay—call local cleaning services for some help.

Here are some more tips for making your house smell great:

Complete Clean

If you don’t hire someone to help you out with the cleaning, then your first step is to hit every nook and cranny, keeping in mind that bad odors adore moisture and fabric. Take out every bit of trash, then clean the bathrooms, kitchen (including the fridge), and make sure every room has been vacuumed.

Power of Fresh Fabric

Foul odors may cling to fabric, but so do good ones! Wash all of your whites: towels, rags, bed sheets, pillowcases, blankets—all of it. That freshness is going to permeate your house and make every room smell cleaner. As an additional benefit, how wonderful is it to climb into a bed with clean sheets or to step out of the shower to a dryer-warm towel?

Aromatic Air

The quickest way to freshness in your home is to open a window whenever weather permits. When spring starts to move in and you have warm days, throw open every window. This will increase air circulation, chase bad odors out, and invite new, fresh smells in. Perfect!

Savvy Smells

Whichever type of scent you like, there’s a way to achieve it. If you just want the air to smell—well, like air—vinegar and water in a spray bottle will do the job. Yes, for about 30 minutes, your house will smell like vinegar, but then it will evaporate and take bad smells with it. 

Throw lemons in the garbage disposal or boil some in water in the microwave for a great smell and a quick way to clean the disposal or microwave. Put baking soda in areas likely to attract smells, as the baking soda will absorb the odors and leave nothing behind.

If you do like bolder scents, scented candles, potpourri, and infusers are going to do more for you than an aerosol spray, so look for one you really love, and enjoy a wonderful smell every day.
