Some of the Best Tips to Make Your Home Smell Amazing

Whether you're hosting a party or just relaxing at home after a long day, nothing beats taking a deep breath and enjoying the fragrance. That said, making your home smell amazing doesn't have to be difficult or expensive. There are a few simple tips and tricks you can use to help you achieve this without much hassle.

Below are just a few examples.

  1. Air It Out

If there is a bad smell in a room and you cannot figure out where it is coming from, you can try placing a bowl of white vinegar in the centre of the room. The vinegar will absorb the smell after a few hours.

  1. Defunk Your Shoes

Your home would smell a lot better without the scent of your kids' dirty shoes. If you can, keep them outside. If you have to keep them inside, you should clean them regularly. You may also just pop them in a plastic bag and seal them tightly before freezing them overnight. In the morning, your shoes will be bacteria-free and will have a neutral smell.

  1. Deodorise Rugs and Carpets Smelling Fresh

This is a DIY recipe for a natural carpet freshener. Simply mix together a cup of bicarbonate soda with a tablespoon of ground cinnamon, and sprinkle it over your carpets (excluding white carpets). Leave the mixture to sit for an hour, and then vacuum it up thoroughly.

  1. Fill a Vase with Flowers

A bouquet of fragrant flowers is a simple way to brighten up any room. Gardenias, roses, oriental lilies, lavender, and eucalyptus leaves are all great choices.

If you don't have time to take care of fresh flowers or if you're allergic to them, try using a scented diffuser with a floral scent.

  1. For Instant Fragrance

Add a few drops of vanilla essence to a pot of boiling water, then add cinnamon sticks, orange or lemon peel. Simmer for a while. You could also bake some florentine biscuits.

  1. Keep Bad Smells Out

To keep your bin smelling fresh, put a layer of coffee grounds (or bicarb soda) at the bottom. This will help absorb any nasty odours. You may also put a bowl of coffee grounds in your fridge to help eliminate any bad smells from food. Replace the bowl once a month or so.

  1. Light a Candle

Scented candles are not only a great way to make your home smell good, but they can also be used to make your clothes smell great! Simply place a few fragrant candles in your closets and drawers, and you'll notice a difference in the way your clothes smell.

  1. Purify the Air

Looking for a way to improve the air quality in your home? Look no further than your local nursery! Many common houseplants can act as natural air purifiers, helping to remove harmful toxins and pollutants from the air. So why not kill two birds with one stone and pick up a few air-purifying plants the next time you're out shopping? Not only will they help improve the quality of the air in your home, but they'll also add a touch of green to your décor.

There are also many scent packs on the market that can help purify the air and make it smell as good as possible.

  1. Treat Your Sink

This means giving your sink a good scrub with a brush, some hot water and a quality multi-surface cleaner. Rinse everything off with boiling water (to get rid of any lingering germs), and then leave the plug to air dry.

Pour bicarb soda and vinegar down the drain and leave for 5 minutes. Pour boiling water down the drain.

  1. Whip up a Batch of Room Spray

A room spray is a solution you can spray around your room to freshen it up. You can either make your own from all-natural ingredients or buy a pre-made one. Room sprays are great for getting rid of bad smells and can also make your room smell nice.


You can do a few key things to make your home smell great. First, focus on keeping your surfaces clean - this will help to prevent any bad smells from taking hold. Next, make sure to ventilate your home regularly, and consider investing in some air-purifying plants. Finally, think about using natural scents to boost your home - this could be anything from scented candles to potpourri.

By following these tips, you can enjoy a fresh and inviting home that smells amazing.
