Whether it’s thanks to fall sports or a messy dog, this season sees its share of unpleasant smells. While the occasional odor is inevitable, there are plenty of ways to keep your home smelling fresh and clean anyway—and you don’t have to head to the store to use them!
Take a look at today’s blog for our take on the easiest natural air fresheners.
Fresh goodies from the kitchen
It may not be feasible to whip up cookies, brownies and other baked goods every single day—but when you can, these treats can serve as a natural air freshener, filling the home with pleasant scents your friends and family will notice as soon as they step inside. When possible, baking early on in the day can keep your home smelling sweet and familiar for hours to come.
On rainy days where mud is being tracked in person by person, or after a particularly tough game of soccer, you can whip up your favorite packaged mix for a quick scent boost that’s sure to counteract whatever smells are being brought into your home. It’s a fresher scent than anything you’ll find in a spray bottle—and the end result, a batch of your favorite sweets, is a bit easier to enjoy, too!
A simmering pot of seasonal scents
We all love candles—but if you’re looking for an alternative to the warm, pleasant scents you’ll find in the store, try this made-from-scratch solution! Toss cinnamon, apple peels and orange rinds into a simmering pot of water and let it warm up your home all afternoon with its naturally pleasant scent. It will feel just like fall ought to feel—and it’s a great way to use up leftovers from your holiday baking endeavors!
Fresh fall air
Here’s the easiest scent solution of all—crack open your windows! Here in Florida, the dry weather coupled with milder temperatures makes for a perfect opportunity for you to open your windows as long as weather permits. It will keep your home cool and well-ventilated, while bringing in the crisp autumn air that this season is known for.
