Tips for a Fresh Smelling Home

by: Monica Resinger

A fresh smelling home is a pleasant home to be in; it lifts spirits and can make you feel better even on rough days. Unfortunately, daily life can leave your home smelling not so fresh. Fried foods and pets are just a couple of things out of many that keep your home from smelling fresh and these smells can make a person irritable, so it is worth it to rid the odors and bring in the aromas. Here are a few tips to help you rid unwanted odors and get your home smelling fresh:

~ If it's not too cold outside, open the front and back door of your home to air out any stale air.

~ Soak a cotton ball with essential or aroma oil, perfume or vanilla and put it into your clean vacuum bag or canister. When you vacuum, it will release the scent.

~ Dab essential or aroma oil onto light bulbs; when they are turned on, the heat of the bulb will release the aroma.

~ If you have odors from cooking lingering, be sure to clean up the cooking mess as soon as possible; this will help the odors to dissipate sooner.

~ Candles nowadays can be richly scented. I like the ones in jars because you can simply remove the lid to release the aroma of the candle rather than burn it.

~ Car air fresheners aren't only for cars... hang them from lamp switches, kitchen cupboard knobs or other hangable places.

I hope these tips help you in getting your home smelling fresh. If you'd like more tips like these, you can get Creative Home's 'Creative Odor and Aroma Tips' e-booklet free by joining the Creative Home Club here: http://creativehomeezine.netfirms.com/ebooklets.htm
