How to make house smell good

By: John | Date Posted: November 11, 2022

Smell is often called humans’ most powerful sense, and scents tell us a lot about the world from what we should eat to even whom we should kiss. When it comes to our homes, if a space smells fresh, that’s a great sign. If the smell is bad? We feel uneasy.

Best 5 products to make house smell good 

All homes have a smell. But some homes smell better (or, let’s be honest, worse) than others. And if you’re worried your home might not fall in the better category, don’t worry. There are millions of ways to tackle weird house smells. And don’t be ashamed. Your house smell isn’t your fault. (Although it might be your pet’s fault.) Afterall, your home is (probably) way older than you are. It’s seen a lot of tenants, hosted a lot of meals and weathered a lot of toilet flushes.

The coziest homes smell amazing the second you walk into them. Even though you might think your home is cozy, you might be nose blind to the smells that have accumulated. After you vacuum and dust there can still be lingering smells and knowing how to get rid of fish smells and how to clean smelly shoes can really come in handy to make sure those unpleasant odors are gone for good. Also, if you have a furry friend running around, you’re probably all too familiar with the products that help with pet odor removal. Getting the dreaded dog smell and cat smell out of your home can be tough, but these tricks will help with that.

Tips to make your kitchen smell good

Kitchen smells are fluid. Their smell literally depends on what’s cookin’ (or what’s brewing, what’s been spilled, what’s sitting in the sink, what’s rotting in the trash can, etc., etc.). But there are lots of little tweaks and adjustments you can make in your kitchen to neutralize and freshen up its baseline smell. (Hint: Most of them revolve around drains and pipes.)

  • If there’s a foul smell coming from your kitchen, sniff around your dishwasher. Though it may seem counterintuitive, your dishwasher needs to be cleaned occasionally. Follow your dishwasher’s cleaning instructions in the manual or read this article for step-by-step dishwasher odor eliminating directions.
  • Put a small bowl of coffee grounds in the fridge or freezer to absorb the stink from last week’s leftovers. Just be sure to clean out your fridge, too. No amount of coffee grounds can combat rotting seafood.
  • If you don’t have coffee on hand (or just hate the smell of coffee), place a cotton ball soaked with vanilla extract in the fridge or freezer.
  • Grind up citrus peels in your garbage disposal. Not only will this clean out your disposal, it’ll also send delicious citrus scents wafting through your kitchen. Plus, this tip will also help you get your daily allotment of vitamin C when you eat the leftover fruit.
  • If you don’t have a garbage disposal but still want to get rid of the smells coming from your sink, consider pouring boiling water down the drain. To save time and water, do this with the left-over water in the kettle after you brew a cup of tea.
  • Simmer aromatic ingredients on the stove. You can throw herbs, spices, and citrus peels in water OR with a little more planning, make some masala chai or mulled cider so you have something warm and cozy to sip on.
  • Bake spices in the oven at a low temperature. Not only will this make your home smell heavenly, toasting the spices makes them taste nuttier and richer, improving your baking.
  • Sprinkle baking soda in your trashcan. Baking soda is a cost-effective way to neutralize all those foul smells coming from that corner of your kitchen.
