Try These 8 Techniques to Bring Fragrance to Your Home

The smell of your home is the first thing guests notice. If your home’s smell is important to you, our professional cleaning services in Boynton Beach will get you one step closer to a cleaner, better-smelling home. Not only does a nice smell indicate that your home is clean, but it can also put you and your guests at ease. Nobody can relax when a home smells of cat litter, dirty laundry, or last night’s dinner. After you have contacted Angelic Maid Cleaning Services, you can ensure your home maintains a pleasant smile with these eight hacks.

Simmer Fruits and Spices

Do you want an easy way to get your kitchen and living room smelling delightful? Try the simmering technique. This involves adding water and lovely-smelling ingredients to a pot of water, then allowing it to slowly simmer on the stove. It is so easy, anyone can do it. 

  • Fill half the pot with water 
  • Add favorite ingredients (i.e., cinnamon sticks, anise stars, citrus peels, rose petals)
  • Follow the 1:3 ratio (one part ingredients, three parts water)

You can choose from a variety of fragrances to find the perfect aroma for your home. 

Use Dryer Sheets

Take your dryer sheets out of the washroom and allow their fragrance to permeate throughout the home. Or you can utilize them in areas that get stuffy and musty, like your closets, drawers, and even in the air vents. Wad up a few sheets and place them in the stuffiest locations. Your home will smell surprisingly fragrant with this easy hack.

Sprinkle Baking Soda Everywhere 

An integral part of ensuring your home smells fragrant is by removing foul odors. Our cleaning services in Boynton Beach will certainly do the trick. In between cleanings, you can also sprinkle baking soda on areas that trap odor and are difficult to clean. This includes carpets, sofa upholstery, large rugs, and heavy cushions. Leave t baking soda on for 15-30 minutes, and then vacuum all the residue. 

This is not the only way to use baking soda. Because it easily absorbs odors, simply placing a small amount in a little bowl will help your home smell fresh. 

Buy a few Plants 

If you love plants and think you have a green thumb, you can rid your house of odor by purchasing a few plants. All plants remove toxins and add oxygen, but the larger the better. Choose from the most effective plants, such as lavender, honeysuckle, plumeria, and mints. 

Coffee Grinds Work, Too

If you don’t have baking soda or plants in the house, but coffee grinds are readily available, these will also neutralize foul odors. Not only that but coffee grinds smell delightful on their own. To try this hack:

  • Put coffee grinds in a bowl
  • Place the bowls throughout your house
  • Replace every couple of weeks (grinds lose their potency)

Use Candles and Potpourri 

Candles and potpourri are not exactly a hack, but they will help your home smell delightful. Make sure they are placed in all the areas of the house that experience the most activity, like the kitchen, bathroom, and in your children’s bedrooms. 

Put Vanilla in your Fridge 

The best way to keep your fridge smelling fresh and clean is to clean it routinely. Fortunately, when you hire our team for professional cleaning services, part of our residential services include cleaning the interior and exterior of your refrigerator. That’s one problem solved. To keep your fridge smelling fresh, wipe your interiors down with a paper towel that has been dipped in vanilla extract. This will help remove the odors that are deeply embedded in the plastic. 

Next, dip cotton balls or a cotton pad in vanilla extract, and put the balls/pads on a saucer or bowl in a corner of the fridge. This will absorb bad odors and have the vanilla permeate your fridge.

Use Your Favorite Essential Oils 

Don’t we all have essential oil fragrances that we love more than others? Did lavender, bergamot, and lemon just come to mind? Use them to deodorize your home. There are a few ways you can do this. You can use a: 

  • Diffuser 
  • Humidifier 
  • Nebulizer

They all work similarly by dispersing the aroma throughout the room. In the case of a humidifier, it also adds humidity, which serves a dual purpose, because it can also help people who struggle with allergies.
