You’re freshly moved in and loving every second of it. There’s one thing, though, that isn’t so perfect, and that’s the smell in your new house. In fact, it’s less than perfect.
The chemicals you spray into the air in your home might not be the best for your or your family’s health, plus it’s not great for the environment, either. Consider some natural alternatives:
SPRAY – Mix a couple of drops of vanilla extract, almond extract or other scents with a cup of water, then spritz the mixture in the air with a spray bottle
SIMMER – Put white vinegar in a small saucepan and simmer it on a stovetop for about 40 minutes – this is a good option to rid your home of particularly strong smells; you may also simmer orange zest mixed with a teaspoon of cinnamon in water for a more pleasant aroma
SPRINKLE – To rid your kitchen of nasty smells, shake some baking soda below the trash bag in the trash can itself; repeat weekly
SQUEEZE – Before you vacuum your home, squeeze some drops of fresh lemon into your vacuum bag or canister; this will be sure to freshen the bag and the carpets around the house
