6 Simple and Surefire Ways to Freshen The Air In Your Home
One of the most well-known deodorisers is sitting in your kitchen. Baking soda naturally absorbs odours and housewives have been using it for decades to remove nasty smells from their fridge and home. Keep open boxes of baking soda all around your house especially near stinky areas. Replace the boxes with new ones every month.
Vinegar is another great deodoriser, and you don’t have to worry that the sour smell will stick to your furniture. The smell disperses in a few hours. Place bowls of vinegar inside the house especially rooms where the smell is quite bad and the foul odour will be gone overnight.
Citrus like lemons and oranges give off a fresh, clean aroma. Slice the fruits in half, position cut side up in bowls and put the bowls in different areas around the house.
Moisten bath salts with your favourite essential oils and store in small jars. Keep the jars opened and distribute all over your house. The fragrance from both the salt and the essential oil is simply wonderful.
Speaking of essential oils, if you don’t have bath salts, the essential oils by themselves will do just fine. Soak cotton balls with the oils, lay them in bowls and situate around the house. Alternatively, you can fill the bowl halfway with water and add a few drops of the essential oil. Some of the most popular oils are lavender, cedarwood, peppermint and rosemary.
Herbs or Houseplants
Herbs don’t just flavour your food, they can also freshen your home. You can grow them in pots in your kitchen and enjoy their lovely scent whatever the season. People often love the smell of mint, basil, thyme and rosemary. Some houseplants can also clear your air of indoor pollutants as well as give your rooms a delightful scent. Just be sure that you choose plants that are non-toxic in case your pet (or your child) takes to chewing them.
