Smell is said to be one of our most interesting senses; we can learn lots of things in the world from the way they smell. And when it comes to our home, it becomes even more important because everyone wants to be welcomed by a fresh and pleasant smell when they take a step inside.
So what’s the secret of those beautifully smelling homes? Well here are 10 habits of people whose homes always smell incredible.
They Take Care of the Moisture
Moisture is the main cause of bad house odors. And people who keep their homes smelling good are careful about the humidity they have in each room.
They Keep Their Fridge Clean
We’re sure you can’t stand the bad smell of rotten food, and in fact, if you have a few expired products in your fridge, their bad smell will spread to your house and won’t get out easily. So check your fridge regularly to see if there’s any food that can cause a bad odor in your kitchen.
They Clean Their Carpets, Curtains, and Pillows Thoroughly
Carpets, curtains, pillows, and pillow covers can quickly be permeated with unpleasant odors. Even when you wash them to get rid of dirt, you can’t get away from the odor-causing bacteria that easily. So people who are careful about the smell of their homes make sure they have a professional cleaning service for the soft surfaces once or twice a year.
They Open the Windows Regularly
Your house will need fresh air to get rid of the unpleasant smells, especially in winter. Like our lungs, our home also needs fresh and clean air to stay healthy. So, even if it’s cold, open your windows for a short period of time, you’ll notice the difference.
They Let Their Washing Machine Spread the Pleasant Smell
Everybody loves the smell of newly washed clothes, so use this smell to refresh the smell of your home; open your laundry room while it’s doing its job and let the wonderful smell spread into your rooms.
They Use Scented Candles
Good scents smell better when they’re heated. And luckily, there are lots of different scented candles in supermarkets, so try some good fragrant candles for your rooms and let them do the job. You can even make your own scented candle with natural ingredients!
They Clean Their Furniture
Our furniture can receive more dirt and bad smells than we think. We may not realize it but the bad odor in our home may be caused by our furniture. So make sure you keep your furniture clean by calling a professional cleaning service every so often.
They Don’t Use Strong Scents
Strong odors are not as good as you think, they can end up being too much. Choose more subtle smells to keep your home smelling pleasant.
They Clean Their Washing Machines Often
Our washing machine has to deal with all kinds of dirty dishes, so it’s normal for it to cause a bad smell from time to time. Clean your washing machine on a regular basis to stay away from the stinky smell of the dishes and the mold and mildew of your machine.
