There’s nothing better than entering a home which smells pleasant. Most people don’t know that scents or odors definitely have an influence on our mood – when we’re in a place that smells good, we are relaxed; however, if the odor is strong and unpleasant, it may make us feel bad. Although everyone is trying their best, it’s not easy to keep the house clean and always smelling good.
Onions and fish are two ingredients whose odors are pretty difficult to remove. Opening the windows or turning the aspirator on does nothing for these odors, and in despair, many housewives decide to buy air fresheners. However, air fresheners simply mask the odor – when their effect passes, the odors are still there. But, don’t give up just yet – we have a simple trick which will make your bedroom, kitchen and living room always smell fresh.
The homemade spray we’re going to show you how to prepare will make your house smell pleasant and surprise all of your guests. The spray is made of easily available and cheap ingredients. Here’s what you need to do:
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 3 tablespoons of fabric softener
- 3 cups of hot water
- 1 spray bottle
The first step is to pour the fabric softener in the spray bottle, then add the hot water and baking soda and close it. Shake the bottle well and your homemade odor remover is ready to go! Spray it in your home and your will enjoy its fine scent.
This is not the only spray you can easily prepare yourselves. Here’s another DIY freshener that has a unique aroma and contains only simple ingredients you probably already have at home:
