7 Ways to Make Your Home Smell Good
Today, on Redhead Mom, I’m sharing a partnered guest post about 7 Ways to Make Your Home Smell Good.
At home, we want to feel safe, relaxed, and comfortable. That can be difficult when there are different smells in or around our home. While we can’t just pick up and move our home somewhere else, there are ways we can make our home smell good. Check out these 6 ways.
1 – Open the windows. During the colder times of year, we have a tendency to keep our windows closed and the heater on. This is preventing the fresh air outside from recirculating through our homes. Even if you open the window for an hour during the day, it will help to recirculate the fresh air during the winter months. If the smell is coming from the outside (i.e., you live near a dumpsite or water plant), you may want to consider reaching out and requesting some sort of wastewater odor control be put in place to reduce the smell.
2 – Burn a candle. I love burning candles, but you must keep an eye on it. If you leave a room, I highly recommend you blow the candle out. I’ve found some really yummy smelling candles at both Bath & Body Works and Michaels. Place the candle on solid surfaces to avoid falling.
3 – Use essential oils in a diffuser. Essential oils are a big thing in homes now. Not only are they used for health remedies, but they can also help to create good smells in the home. Plus, there are a variety of scents you can choose from!
4 – Add scented powder to your carpet when you vacuum. Something we like to do here and there is to use scented powder (designed specifically for vacuuming carpets) to help our high-traffic areas smell better. Especially with dogs who go in and out of our home, this is a definite game changer. It also gives an additional reason to want to vacuum our carpets more often! You can find the scented powder at Walmart, Target, and even Dollar Tree! You can also order it from Amazon if you want it delivered right to your home.
5 – Deep clean high-traffic areas of your home. This may require cleaning the carpet with a carpet cleaner machine or deep cleaning with a mop in high-traffic areas. This can make a world of difference in how it affects the smell of your home. I love the smell of good old Pine Sol on our kitchen or entryway floor. Not only does it leave a clean floor, but it makes the home smell fresh and clean.
6 – Bake something in your oven. Not only does baking something in your oven make your home smell amazing, but you have a nice treat to enjoy with your family afterwards. Big hits include muffins, cookies, and cakes. Those delicious smells immediately spread throughout your home and will leave everyone excited for what will come out of the oven.
7 – Put out some fresh flowers. I love a good bouquet of fresh flowers. Not only do they smell good, but they are decorative as well and can quickly brighten up a room. If you are out in the wild picking fresh flowers, be sure to cross a bridge like the ones on this website.
If you have other ways you’ve used to make your home smell better, be sure to share about them on your blog and social media channels. Check out this website for good cameras.
