5 ways to make your house smell fresh all the time
5 ways to make your house smell fresh all the time 2

Clean it!

The first tip is to simply keep a house clean. This can be done by dusting and cleaning up messes as they happen, vacuuming often, and mopping the floors every week or so. Also, take out the trash often and consider investing in an air purifier if you have trouble with a pesky pet or smoke odours.

Smoke it!

The next tip is to smoke your house out with a smoky candle or incense. This does not mean lighting up in the house but rather having some scented candles with a hint of cigarette smell. Not all homes agree with scented candles, so this may not be the best way to go. Along with a quick smoke bomb in your house, you can also spray air freshener in high trafficked areas such as bathrooms and kitchens.

Open the windows!

Having an open window in every room is the next tip. The fresh air will help get rid of any lingering smells, and it can give your home a lighter feeling. If you live somewhere cold, open the windows during the day when the sun is out to warm up your house for a couple of hours, then close them before things get too cold.

Make scented potpourri!

Having a jar of scented potpourri in high trafficked areas will not only make your house smell fresh but can remove bad odours. There are many different recipes for scented potpourris, such as brewing coffee and letting it sit, using baking soda and essential oils (this is an expensive but very effective way), lemon and rosemary, or orange peels.

Keep it tidy!

The final tip is to keep counters tidy and free of smelly clutter. If you have a fruit bowl, make sure the fruits are ripe clean, and replace them as they go bad. Keep dishes to a minimum by washing them right away and not leaving food in the sink. Clean out your fridge from time to time because that bin can get quite smelly.

That’s it! These are the 5 best ways to make your house smell fresh all the time.
