I don't know how dirty you are and to be honest, I love you guys but I don't want to know. In my house, dirty diapers and a cat (that really pisses me off) do enough to add a unique daily aroma to my house that I hate. As you know, I work from home so on bad stink days, it's enough to give me a headache.
Anyway, I am a very clean person so I do what ever I can to keep the house smelling fresh. My favorite trick is to put fabric softener sheets just under the heat registers so when the furnace or A/C is blowing, it's blowing downy fresh air.
BUT, that doesn't always to the trick and the fabric softeners don't last too long. So, I want to share some tips I learned from Thrifty Mommy.
- To get rid of bad smells, pour vinegar in a bowl and let it sit overnight.
- Put natural spices in a pot and boil them on the stove.
- If you have clothes to hang dry, hang them in the room that you want to smell nice. (The room will smell like your detergent or softener.)
- Place laundry detergent in the bottom of your tub overnight. The bathroom smells good and the tub sparkles.
Hey, do you guys have some secret tips that don't include killing the cat? If so, please let me know.
