The best ways to make your home smell delightful

Have you ever walked into someone’s house and it immediately smelled amazing? Have you ever wondered how they could make their house smell so good?

With kids, pets, and just daily life sometimes it’s hard to keep odors out of your house.

So, here are three things we recommend if you want the best smelling house on the block. 

1: Citrus on the stove

You don’t need anything fancy for this – just some citrus, water, and a pan!

Reader’s Digest recommended, “Add several lemon and orange peels to a cup or two of water, then let it simmer for a few hours, adding water as needed. You’ll freshen the air and the pot in one step.”

Quick and easy!

2. Get the best air freshener

Do your research when it comes to air fresheners for your home. Some are better than others!

Bustle, for example, published an in depth review of fresheners that help with pet odors. They said, “To choose the best option, consider the type of pet you have and the kind of odors you’re trying to eliminate.”

3. Bake!

There’s nothing like baking to make your nose (and your stomach) happy!

Food 24 has a list of bread recipes that will have the added benefit of making your kitchen smell amazing! 

If you don’t have time to actually bake, just put some vanilla extract in the oven for about an hour. 


Remember, these are just tips to make your house smell a little better. If something in your house smells foul or wrong and you can’t fix it, get in touch with one of our professionals because that could be a sign of a serious problem with your house.
