On the other hand, the right smell or scent in your house can make your entire room feel fresher and more comfortable. Everyone in your house will feel welcomed and right at home.
Now I don’t want to tell you to buy commercial air fresheners that are made with some harsh chemicals. I want to tell you how to make your house smell good using natural ways. And these tips are easy to follow and of course, affordable.
I love cleaning vinegar. It’s effective at cleaning and getting rid of bad smells and harmless to everyone in the house. You can easily remove dirt, pathogens, and grime in your house by cleaning vinegar. Certain bacteria that are commonly found inside a home like E. coli won’t stand a chance.
You can make it even better by using scented cleaning vinegar. With this, you can clean and leave a fresh scent in your house. But remember that you can’t use cleaning vinegar for everything. Granite, marble, kitchen knives, egg-based stains, solid wood furniture, metal surface, and clothes iron are some of the stuff that can’t be cleaned with cleaning vinegar.
Garbage disposal frozen cubes
Indoor garbage disposal is often the source of bad smell and cleaning it can be pretty difficult. And the worst thing is, sometimes the smell is still there even after you cleaned it. The solution is by using frozen cubes made of lemon and vinegar and you can make this yourself.
So, you’ll need lemon, white vinegar, and an ice cube tray. Slice the lemon into small pieces that fit into the ice tray’s molds. Then fill each mold with white vinegar and put the ice tray in the freezer. Wait until the cubes are frozen and put them in a plastic bag in the freezer.
Now you can use the frozen cubes by throwing one or more cubes in the garbage disposal. It’ll do its job while it’s melting away. This is really easy and effective to get rid of bad smells.
Homemade scented wax melts
Wax melts are a great way to fill your home with the scent of your choice. And you don’t even have to worry about open fire in your home. You can buy them in a store, but you can also make them yourself for cheaper.
To make them yourself, you’ll need a saucepan, a glass bowl, ¼ cup beeswax pastilles, ½ cup coconut oil, silicone mold, and 100 drops of essential oil. Pour a little bit of water into the saucepan and let it simmer. Put the glass bowl into the saucepan with simmering water in it. Put coconut oil and beeswax into the glass bowl. Wait until they melt completely and remove the glass bowl away from the saucepan.
Now you can add essential oil into the mix. You can combine two or more essential oils if you want to. After you’re done mixing them together, pour it into the silicone mold. Wait until the mixture solidifies and pop them out of the silicone mold.
Now you can use the wax melt by putting it on your wax warmer. Put the wax warmer anywhere you want and turn it on. Enjoy the all-natural scent anytime you want. And if you can’t smell it, you might have lost your sense of smell.
Essential oil diffusers
This last tip is the easiest one on the list. Just fill your diffuser with water and a few drops of essential oil and turn it on. The diffuser will create a mist that carries the water and scent from the essential oil throughout the entire room.
To make this more enjoyable, please do your research before you buy an oil diffuser. Get the best one that fits your budget. And also, get a set of essential oils since it’s often cheaper than buying one essential oil at a time.
