How to Keep Your Home Odor-Free


If you home smells less than lovely, it can be an embarrassing problem. Finding the source of the smell may prove difficult if you cannot tell where it originates. However, there are a multitude of odor removal techniques you can try.

Cooking is an easy way to have your home filled with a pleasant scent. If you have guests coming over, baking cookies or other delicious goods will distract from any bad smells. Visitors will only be able to register the yummy aromas instead. Stovetop potpourri is another option. To make this you just have to let water simmer on low heat in a small saucepan and add herbs, like mint or lavender, or orange slices. The heat will carry the delectable scent to every room. You can customize the ingredients to suit your tastes. You can also use a crockpot as the heating element instead of the stovetop. The crockpot is a safer option if you have young children in your home.

If you notice a smell permeating from your kitchen, the source may be your garbage disposal. Try pouring some lemon-scented dish soap into the disposal, allowing the water to run, and then turn it on. If the odor persists, dispense a half cup of baking soda into the disposal while warm water is running. You can make garbage disposal cubes yourself as well. Simply create a mixture of citrus and white vinegar, and allow it to freeze in an ice cube tray. Once frozen, insert the cubes into the disposal and let them melt.

There are many more tricks for odor removal in your home. You can place car deodorizers on your air vents. Simply clip the car air fresheners, from brands like Glade and Febreze, to the metal slats and wait for the air to turn on. When the vents are working, it will waft the fresh scents everywhere. Storing scented dryer sheets in random places is another option. The lovely scent from the dryer sheets should not be reserved for just the laundry room. Placing the dryer sheets in linen closets or in dressers is sure to make your house smell fresh and clean. You can use indoor plants to purify the air naturally. Not only will having plants in your home add some beauty, but it will serve a purpose as well. Palm trees, peace lilies, and orchids all have great purifying capabilities. Other plants to consider are geraniums, eucalyptus, gardenias, Arabian jasmine, and Cuban oregano.
