5 EFFECTIVE to make your home smell good

Every house has a scent. Many factors work together to create a scent in your home, be it indoor plants, shoes in the shoe rack, trash can, your pet, etc. The smell of all these things combines to make a unique scent of your abode.

While you definitely might be regularly cleaning your home and making sure that there is no smelly stuff around, sometimes it requires much more than this for your house to smell good. So here are 5 easy ways to make your abode smell wonderful and amazing!

Change the trash can

This one is the most obvious way there is, to make your home smell good and to get rid of any odours. The trash can is more often than not, filled with a variety of smelly substances like fruit peels, leftovers, etc which can make your house smell. So empty it daily and change it every once in a while.

Scented candles

Keeping scented candles at every corner of the house is a sure-shot way to make your house smell divine. Keep one in every room, from the living room to the bedrooms, and light them wherever you want to enjoy an encapsulating fragrance.


They look beautiful and smell even better. They are easily available at every home decor shop and you can even make one on your own by simply mixing a handful of dried flowers with some essential oil and keeping it in an airtight container for a week or two.

Clean the rugs

Often rugs are one of the major culprits for your house emitting a strange odour. To avoid this, sprinkle some baking soda on your rugs and then vacuum them to get rid of the weird stench.

Simmer fruits 

Yes, you read it right! For your abode to smell amazing, simply fill a pan with water, add sliced lemon and your favourite herbs. Simmer these on low heat for the scent of the herbs and fruits to permeate in the house.

Indoor Plants
