As you and your family are spending more time at home, having a stench-free environment has become so much more important than before. Sadly, with more cooking, kids playing indoors and increased workout time at home, you may start to lose control of the situation. You may not be having many visitors these times but bad odors shouldn’t be one of them. Read more on how to keep bad odors at bay and make your home smell fresh again.
Take actions against kitchen odors immediately
There are many ways to make your home smell great, but sometimes, you need effective and immediate action in the kitchen. Onions and garlic may be a great addition to your meals, especially in oriental staple dishes. The problem is that they linger longer than they should in your home, especially if you have an open plan kitchen. The best way to eliminate these odors is by using Febreze Air Freshener that will infuse a fresh scent once you are done with the cooking.
Use candles around the house in an unusual way
Place your favorite aromatic candles strategically around your home without lighting them and you will notice a subtle difference anytime you walk from one room to another and will keep your home smelling fresh. Another way to increase their efficiency during lockdown is to store them in your linen closet so your bed sheets and towels can absorb their aromas and they will smell great whenever you want to use them.
Add a fresh breeze to your vents
You may not be getting around in your car a lot lately but your car deodorizer may come in handy at home too. Clip Febreze Car Air Freshener to your centralized air conditioner vents and infuse your home with a fresh scent all over again. This is also a great way to get rid of persistent tobacco smells effectively.
Keep your trash can clean
We all know that garbage stinks, that’s why it is of the utmost importance to empty your trash regularly to keep your home smelling good. If the smell lingers over time, then you need to clean the trash can properly. One solution is to spray it with diluted bleach and let it sit for a few hours before rinsing with water and washing it with soap. One other permanent solution would be to choose a specific can for items that smell like food waste and take it out every day even if it isn’t full yet. It would also help if you place this can outside.
Freshen up your carpets and rugs
Spilled food and pets at home can leave your carpets and rugs smelling bad especially that they are absorbent to stench. The key to eliminating these odors during lockdown is by sprinkling baking soda all over the carpet, letting it sit for a few hours before vacuuming. After that, your carpets are once again odor-free.
Get rid of stinky shoes
If you are spending more time working out whether indoors or outdoors, your shoe may stink after a while. To make them smell less, spray some dry shampoo onto the soles of your shoes and air them out outside before placing them back in your closet.
Create a relaxing experience in your bathroom
With the lockdown still in place, you may be spending more time in the bathroom taking care of yourself with facial masks and hair treatments. Having a relaxed experience is key to your well-being. And when you need a touch of freshness in your bathroom, Febreze Small Spaces Air Freshener is a great choice as it eliminates tough lingering odors, leaving a fresh scent up to 30 days.
