Keeping your home smelling fresh and fragrant can take a lot of dedication and patience. It’s not only a one time big time event, it is a process.

The good thing is that it doesn’t cost that much to get rid of the bad smell. There are simple ways to eliminate the smell instantly.



Eliminate the Cause of Odors 

This can take a very long time because you have to know and search every part of your house to detect where the bad smell is coming from. Most of the time, all the things where dust clings to will smell badly. Try to de-clutter your house and eliminate all the unused things that have been accumulating dust. Also, dead insects, rodents, crickets among others are usually found in the corners and behind bulky furniture so make sure that you check them.  

Air It Out 

The best and easiest way you can do to get rid of any bad smell is to open your windows and let clean and fresh come in. This won’t be ideal if you live in a country with cold weather. Turn every electric fan and air conditioners because they help in removing the stink too.  

Use Candles and Fresheners 

This is a fast and easy way to mask any bad smell. However, it still not going to get rid all of the bad smell but it will help mask it temporarily. You want to keep your home smelling good, you don’t want to get stifled with a lot of different scent that will overpower each other. The trick is to get the same smelling perfume. You can use it on your fabrics during laundry. This can make sure that with the clothes that you’re wearing, you’re helping to make your home smell good. You can also use fresheners on your carpets and furniture casings. There are also air fresheners available on the market that you can spray. Make sure that you have a uniform scent.  

Candles can also be a great and fast way to bring a lovely scent inside your home.  Make sure that you’re not going to use it while cooking because it can be a haphazard. You can also make your own concoction or a potpourri using a combination of your favorite candles, petals of flowers, oil essence, and favorite fragrance of shampoo!
