According to science, humans can detect over one trillion different scents—so why not make the ones in your home pleasant? Smell is also largely linked to memory, meaning that guests who remember your home smelling lovely will likely want to return! Try out these simple methods for creating a wonderful whiff in every corner.
Deodorize Your Mattress
Snuggling into bed at the end of the day is one of our favorite activities. Unfortunately, it’s not just us who has cottoned on to the comfiness, as bacteria love a good bed. Combine water, one tablespoon of baking soda, and a few drops of lavender oil in a spray bottle and spritz away to freshen up your mattress and bid au revoir to any odors!
Damp spaces are prone to adopting a musty smell that we could, personally, do without. Cupboards, wardrobes, and other places devoid of sunlight tend to bear the brunt of it. To banish the stench, place a container of rice with 10 drops of clove oil on a shelf and enjoy the scent.
An easy way to make your home smell heavenly is to simmer lemons, rosemary, and vanilla in a pot. The fragrance should travel from the kitchen, creating a wonderfully inviting space. Just be careful—your visitors may never want to leave!
