The Benefits of a Fresh-Smelling Home

  • Improved mood
  • Better health
  • Improved hygiene

Tips for Making Your Home Smell Better

  • Open the windows. This will help to get rid of stale air and let in some fresh, natural scents.
  • Use air fresheners that don’t contain harmful chemicals (like aerosols). You can find these at most grocery stores or big box stores like Target or Walmart.
  • Use natural scents around your home to create a pleasant smell without using chemicals:
    • Try baking cookies! The smell of freshly baked cookies is sure to make anyone smile! Just make sure not to leave them on too long–they’ll burn if left unattended for too long!

DIY Air Fresheners

There are a few DIY air fresheners that are easy to make and can be made with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.

Essential Oil Diffuser
If you’re looking for an alternative to plug-in air fresheners, try this essential oil diffuser! It’s simple to assemble and will give off a subtle scent throughout the room.

  • Glass jar or bowl (about 4 cups)
  • Water (1 cup)
  • Baking soda (1 tbsp)

Pour enough water into the glass container so that it covers about half of the bottom surface area of your bowl or jar. Add baking soda until dissolved completely — this will help keep mold from growing in your container over time!

Cleaning Tips for Making Your Home Smell Better

  • Clean carpets and rugs. Vacuuming regularly will help to get rid of dust, dirt and allergens that can make your home smell bad.
  • Clean up spills and messes quickly. Don’t let food or liquid sit around for too long before you clean it up–the longer it sits, the stronger the odor will become!
  • Use baking soda on carpets if there’s an unpleasant odor coming from them (like cigarette smoke). Sprinkle baking soda over the carpeted area; leave overnight; vacuum in the morning before using any other cleaning products on your rug or carpeting

Tips for Keeping Your Home Smelling Fresh Long-Term

  • Invest in an air purifier.
  • Use baking soda to absorb odors.
  • Keep plants in the home, especially ones with a strong aroma like basil or mint.

DIY Cleaning Solutions

  • Vinegar and baking soda. Mix one cup of vinegar with two tablespoons of baking soda, then add enough water to make a paste. Scrub this on your sink or tub, let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse clean with warm water. This combo will remove soap scum and hard-water stains while leaving behind an amazing fresh scent!
  • Lemon and baking soda. For an even more intense cleaning power than just plain vinegar, try adding lemon juice to your mix instead! Just like above: mix one cup each of white distilled vinegar and baking soda (you can also use lemon juice if you don’t have any on hand), then add enough water until it forms a paste that’s easy to spread around but not too runny–the consistency should be similar to toothpaste when you’re done mixing everything together in small batches until all ingredients are incorporated into each batch before using them all together at once on whatever surface needs scrubbing down next time around!

Tips for Getting Rid of Pet Odors

If you have pets, then the smell of their litter box can be a real problem. To get rid of this odor, clean it regularly and use pet odor neutralizers. You should also vacuum regularly to remove any stray hairs that may be around your house.

If you don’t want to spend money on expensive cleaners or products that claim they’ll make your home smell better but don’t actually work very well at all (or even worse: cause more harm than good!), then try these tips instead:

Tips for Getting Rid of Cooking Odors

  • Open the windows. If you’re cooking something that has a strong odor, open up your windows and let the fresh air in. This will help to get rid of any lingering smells in your home.
  • Simmer vinegar on the stovetop. If you want to get rid of cooking odors but don’t have time for an open window session, simmering some vinegar on your stovetop is another option that works well for getting rid of strong cooking smells like garlic or onion (or even fish!). Just add about half a cup of white distilled vinegar into a small saucepan over medium heat until it simmers away–this should take about 10 minutes–and then turn off the heat once it’s done simmering! You can also try adding some lemon slices if you’d like; they’ll add even more scent-fighting power!
  • Use scented candles around your kitchen area while cooking so that when things start smelling funny later on down the road at least there’ll be something nice going on around those areas too!

Tips for Getting Rid of Smoke Odors

To get rid of smoke odors, you’ll want to open the windows and let fresh air in. If you have an air purifier, use it! You can also try baking soda–just sprinkle some on a cloth and wipe down surfaces around your home.

You can make your home smell better by using natural and DIY solutions. You don’t need to spend a lot of money on expensive air fresheners or scented candles. Instead, invest in an air purifier that will remove unwanted odors from the air.
