You head for the front door of your home, finally ready to relax, but you are bombarded with this awful smell. Distracted and worried, you begin to search for the source of the smell before deciding to use a commercial air freshener to appease your senses. Sadly, this air freshener is only temporary and the cycle begins anew the next day, making you continuously wonder what in your house can cause such a stench. The following natural and homemade recipes will show you how to make your house smell good.
1. Deodorizing Spray
The first option for how to make your house smell good is to create your very own deodorizing spray.
How to Make:
You will need distilled water, a few drops of your favorite essential oil (lavender, lemon, cinnamon, etc.), and a tablespoon of baking soda.
Simply mix these together and pour the mixture in to a spray bottle to use when needed.
Increase or decrease the strength of the scent by changing the amount of water – more water for a faint scent, less water for a stronger scent.
The best part of this option is the essential oils, as these are known for their health benefits and can be sprayed into the air or directly on to smelly items, like the couch.
