Your home is your sanctuary. It should always be a place where you feel comfortable. But if it doesn’t smell quite right, you’ll never achieve that complete peace.

Odors can be intimidating to defeat. Because they are invisible, some homeowners struggle with understanding how to get rid of unpleasant smells.

Luckily, with the right tricks and tools, your home can always smell fresh, clean and inviting.

Let’s walk through a few of our favorite do-it-yourself steps for a pleasant-smelling home.

Clean Your Kitchen Drain

One of the most common culprits of funky home smells is your kitchen drain. Food and bacteria can easily become trapped in your garbage disposal, creating some weird odors.

Here’s an easy DIY process for keeping your kitchen sink smelling fresh:

  1. Mix ½ cup of baking soda with a ¼ cup of table salt.
  2. Pour the mixture down the drain.
  3. Pour 1 cup of vinegar down the drain.
  4. Let the cleaning concoction sit for 15 minutes.
  5. Run hot water down the drain for 1 minute.

Beautify Your Air Quality With Fresh Flowers or Plants

One great thing about flowers and plants is that they not only look great, they smell nice. They are a great way to improve the smell of your home.

Roses, jasmine, lilacs, gardenia, peonies or lilies are all great options. Really, you should choose whatever you like.

Consider Candle Warmers

While candles are nice, they can be dangerous. Not to mention that they can cause their own mess.

But candle warmers, which you plug into a wall socket, can fill your home with pleasant scents in a matter of minutes. The best part is there are hundreds of scents for you to choose from, so you can find what best matches your nose.

Don’t Neglect Your Washing Machine

Believe it or not, you’ve got to wash your washing machine. Seems crazy, right? But if you don’t wash your washer you can end up with musty, moldy, mildewy smells.

A quick Google search will reveal a number of different products that you can simply pour into your washer. After you then run a cycle with the cleaner, all of the bad odors should be eliminated. Find a product that works with your specific machine.

Use Deodorizing Sprays for a Quick Fix

A few spritzes of your favorite store-bought spray can freshen up the smell of your home. You can use it in specific situations or for just general preventive maintenance.
