What do cinnamon rolls, a rose garden, and
fresh linen have in common? That’s right, they all smell so good you
can’t get enough of that aroma. The good news is your house can smell just
as dreamy if you follow some simple tips! (In other words, if you close your eyes, sniff
around, and you can’t tell the difference between your arm pits and your house, then
you should do these things. Clear enough? Okay.) 1. Take good care of the trash can
The trash can is obviously one of the biggest sources of stinky odor, but just taking the
trash outside isn’t enough. Before you put a new empty bag inside the
can, clean it well, because the can itself accumulates smells that stick around. Throw away any remnants of waste that stick
to the can on the inside. Rinse the can with a garden hose, wipe it
with paper towels or old rags, spray it on the inside with an all-purpose cleaner, scrub
it well, and rinse again. Then you can put a new trash bag inside. 2. Use dryer sheets as a deodorant
Everybody loves the smell of fresh linen, but not everybody knows that the dryer sheets
can work for other purposes, as well. Place them in shoe closets, musty areas, trash
cans, and gym bags. The sheets will soak up the odor. 3. Spread the aroma through the vents Another tip with dryer sheets that works like
magic – put a few of them behind the vents in every room. Voila – the circulating air will carry the
aroma of freshness around your house. Make sure to put in new sheets once every
few weeks as the air dries them out. 4. Clean the carpet If you have carpet and just vacuum it every
once in a while, don’t be surprised if it becomes stinky at some point. This is especially true if you have pets that
like to mark the carpet as their territory. To chase away bacteria that accumulates in
the carpet and get rid of urine smells, rub the carpet with a vinegar and water mix (one
part vinegar, three parts water) with a cloth, and then rinse it well with water. 5. Onions to freshen your basement You know that moldy odor that sets in your
basement after a heavy rain and never goes away? You can fight it with onions! Slice one right down the middle and drop it
in the basement for the night. When you check it the next morning, you won’t
recognize the place, or rather, its smell. 6. Combat mold for good Unfortunately, mold doesn’t only live in
your basement, but can visit any damp area of your house, like the shower, bathroom tiles,
sinks and so on. One effective solution against it is mixing
1 cup bleach with 1 gallon of water in a bucket and spreading the mix onto the affected areas
with a stiff-bristled brush. Don’t forget to put on rubber gloves before
you do it, and open the windows to get some fresh air in. Rinse the area with a sponge when you’re
finished. 7. No more stinky sneakers Your favorite sneakers can make the whole
closet stink, but that’s no reason to throw them away. Instead, try sprinkling baking soda inside
them and leave it overnight. The next morning remove the powder and enjoy
your nice, fresh shoes. 8. Take care of the washing machine The gadget that keeps your clothes clean needs
a good cleaning itself. The air hardly ever gets past its well-sealed
door, so mold and mildew often grow inside, spreading their odor to the laundry room. To solve this issue, just run a cycle with
a cup or two of bleach and warm water from time to time. And when you’re not using it, leave the
lid open if you can. 9. Start your own spa I’m not suggesting that you invest in a
spa business; you can just fill your bathroom with spa-like smells and sensations. Tie some strong fragrant herbs like lemon
balm, thyme or rosemary in the far corner of the shower to keep them away from water. The steam coming from the hot shower will
activate the essential oils in them, and the aroma will spread all over the place. 10. Keep the toilets shiny clean Another obvious stinky source is the toilet. Vinegar will help you combat that. Pour one cup inside, and spray the seat and
the outsides with it as well. Leave it for 5 minutes, then scrub the inside
with a toilet brush and wipe the outside using paper towels. Flush the toilet to make sure all the debris
from scrubbing are gone. 11. Let it roll Here’s one cool tip for the toilet paper
roll – sprinkle the cardboard tube inside it with a few drops of your favorite essential
oil. You can also do the same with the rolls that
are waiting to be used. Whenever you rip off a piece of toilet paper
in the future, the essential oil smell will come out and deodorize the room. 12. Lemons for your garbage disposal To keep your garbage disposal from smelling
like total trash, drop a sliced lemon, lime or an orange in it when it’s running. If the citrus doesn’t work, try something
even stronger – pour half a cup of white vinegar and cold water inside. 13. Wash away dishwasher smell
White vinegar works its magic on many appliances, including the dishwasher. Pour it in a dishwasher-safe cup, put it on
the top rack and turn it on a full cycle, not adding any other dishes. You can also try pouring two cups of vinegar
straight onto the bottom of the dishwasher. It’ll smell like vinegar for about an hour
afterwards, but the bad smells will be gone, too, so it’s worth it. 14. Baking soda for the fridge
Your fridge accumulates all sorts of smells from the food inside. Baking soda, with its unique chemical properties,
will help to absorb them and make it smell neutral. Put an open box of it on the shelf or in the
back, and keep it there. Change it once a year. 15. Make use of coffee grounds
The coffee aroma is so strong, it’ll take over any unpleasant stinking in your fridge! Stuff a nylon stocking with coffee grounds
and keep it in the back of the fridge for a natural deodorizing effect. 16. Vanilla extract in your freezer
To fix the odor problems in your ice box, swipe it on the inside with a cotton ball
soaked in vanilla extract. It’s an instant fix for leftover meat stinking. 17. Chase away the smell of fried fish
If you like to fry things, and add spices to your cooking often, just opening the kitchen
window won’t chase away that smell for good. It basically gets ingrained in your kitchen
cabinets. For an instant fix, boil a cup of vinegar
on the stove right after cooking something hot and spicy. It’ll release its vapors to combat the stinking. 18. Use citrus power
To make your kitchen, or the entire house, smell like a citrus garden, use orange peels! Dry them overnight, then boil 5 or 6 of them
in a pot of water with the lid off for a couple of hours. You can also add any spices you like. Cinnamon, for example, has a super strong
and pleasant aroma. Ginger, basil, allspice, cranberries, and
cloves also work just fine! If you have a gas stove, you can just burn
an orange peel over it for an instant effect! 19. Clean the microwave To make the microwave smell like new with
basically no effort, drop a sponge or rag you use to do the dishes soaked in dishwasher
inside and turn it on for about 5 minutes. The steam will work its magic inside the microwave. Once you’re done, you can also wipe it down
on the inside with the same sponge. (Just let it cool off first…) 20. Get some house plants They not only make your house look greener,
but purify the air. Snake plants, English ivy, lady palms, scented
geraniums and Arabian jasmines are the most effective at this job. 21. Take care of the kitty litter box Activated charcoal will help you solve the
stinky kitty litter problem. It’s naturally great at absorbing odors,
especially those produced by pets. You can make a charcoal filter by putting
it in cheesecloth and setting it on or near the litter box; or simply set it in a small
bowl by the litter box if you don’t have little kids that can play with it. How about you? Do you have your own tips to make your house

    3) Have her sterilize the kitchen counters, table, floor, and other soiled areas "afterwards".

  12. Don't inhale dryer sheets, so don't put them in anything that ventilates, coz they contain higly toxic.
    And when putting baking soda in your shoes, put the soda in a sock and then in your shoes. Much easier and reusable.

  13. Before vacuuming , vacuum a handful of washing powder.
    The vacuum cleaner wil spread a nice smell while cleaning the house.

  14. Can’t stand the prefume smell of dryer sheets, wouldn’t even think of putting them in the vents. That would be just a cover up odor, not removing one.

  15. Open windows…have your linen wash every few days…throw garbage out Every nite….wash garbage pale weekend …etc etc

  18. Take orange peels and soak them in a jar full of white vinegar. This needs to be soaked for four days. Then, the infused vinegar can be added to a spray bottle, mixed with water and used as a multi surface cleaner. It also removes odors as it cleans

  19. Put those toxic dryer sheets everywhere so can hide all the other smells while your health suffers. Even if you use them in your dryer, you are a fool. What is more important, your health or your nose?

  20. All very well leaving your washing machine door open but if you’ve got a kitten it could jump into it unbeknown to you heaven forbid!
