If you’ve spent a lot of time and money making your home look nice, then the last thing you want to do is ruin the effect by having the lace smell a little funky.

Luckily, there are lots of really simple things you can do to make your home smell better and better each day, including the following.

1. Open the windows

If you can open the windows in your home for at least one hour every day, it will enable you to release stale odors and let lots of lovely clean fresh air in, so this should be your starting point if you want your house to smell better.

2. Deal with pests

Pests leave droppings and droppings can cause your home to smell, so call in SWAT Wildlife if you have rats or raccoons or even birds who are getting into your property and causing a stink. The sooner the better.

3. Become best friends with baking soda

If you want to have a clean, fresh-smelling home then baking soda really is your best friend. You can open a box and leave it in the fridge to absorb food smells, sprinkle it on carpets to get rid of lingering odors, and so much more besides.

4. Invest in a diffuser

Aromatherapy diffusers are very simple gadgets that you fill with water and a few drops of your favourite essential oils. You then turn them on and they start emitting a mist of wonderful-smelling vapor that fills your home and makes it smell naturally wonderful. If you want your home not to just smell neutral, but to smell of lavender or orange or lemongrass, this is one gadget you will not want to do without.

5. Groom the dog

If you have pets, then keeping them clean and well-groomed will mean that your home doesn’t end up smelling doggy or catty or hamster-like, which is why it is so important to practice good pet hygiene.

6. Bake your own bread

Baking your own bread is a really good way to ensure that your home always smells amazing, because there is nothing better than the smell of baking, right? Not only that, but homemade bread is usually a lot more healthy than the stuff that you buy at the store, so you can kill two birds with one stone, so to speak.

7. Roast your own coffee beans

Buying and roasting your own coffee beans each morning is also a good way to infuse your home with rich, natural aromas, and it makes for a much more satisfying cup of coffee that it still likely to be cheaper than your usual takeout order, too.

8. Make stovetop potpourri

If you love the smell of potpourri, make your own y mixing herbs, spices, flowers, orange peels, and anything else you like in a pan of water and leaving it on the stove to simmer for as long as possible. It will fill the whole house with its scent.

Here's to a home, sweet-smelling, home!
