Probably, no one will argue with the fact that it is very pleasant to be in a neatly tidied house. And if the house also smells as good as it looks, then this creates an even greater atmosphere of warmth, comfort and coziness. There are some simple yet powerful secrets to creating and maintaining a fresh, fragrant scent in your home.
AIR THE ROOM DAILY
Always open all windows before cleaning. The breeze from the street will not only ventilate and dry the room, but can also bring a fresh scent into it. In the warm season, you should arrange ventilation as often as possible.
DIY AROMATIC WATER
When thinking about aromatizing a room, the first thing many people think of is scented candles. Indeed, this is a good way. However, there is an equally effective alternative – aromatic water, which, moreover, can be very easily made with your own hands. Just take 100 ml of pure water and add 30 drops of your favorite essential oil to it. Spray the resulting aromatic water onto curtains, bedding, furniture.
AROMATHERAPY at home
Aromatherapy is a great way to refresh a room. To do this, pour water into a saucepan and put it on fire. Add chopped lemon and, for example, rosemary sprigs to the water. Bring to a boil, set on low heat and leave for several hours. And at the end of such aromatherapy, you will also receive ready-made aromatic water.
EASY WAY TO REFRESH YOUR LIVING ROOM
A good way to freshen up a room is to wash all of the throw pillows and throws at the same time. And instead of conditioner, you can put cloth balls with your favorite essential oil in the washing machine.
USE FRAGRANCE OIL WHILE IRONING
And in order to refresh the laundry during ironing, it is enough to add a few drops of essential oil to the water for the iron.
SODA WITH AROMA CLEANING OILS
As you know, soda is an excellent cleaning agent. You can also make it an aromatic cleaner. To do this, add 10 drops of oil per 100 g of soda, mix well. Sprinkle the resulting product on the surface you want to clean and leave for about 20 minutes. Then we collect everything with a vacuum cleaner. The baking soda will remove dust, dirt and unpleasant odors.
VACUUM, MY FLOOR AND AROMA AT THE SAME TIME
There is a simple and effective recipe for disinfecting and aromatizing a room while mopping. In 5 liters of water, stir 10 drops of lavender and tea tree oil and 30 ml of white vinegar.
There is also a simple vacuum cleaner life hack. Before using it, take a cotton pad and put a few drops of aroma oil on it. Vacuum the cotton pad and continue cleaning with it in the vacuum cleaner.
HOME LAUNDRY FRAGRANT
Take aromatic tea, a handful of rice, a few drops of aromatic oil and wrap it all in a light cloth. We tie the resulting bag with a ribbon and send it to the closet.
Orange vinegar is an excellent product for cleaning and flavoring all surfaces. It disinfects and refreshes perfectly. In order to prepare it, you need to pour vinegar over the citrus peels and let them brew in the refrigerator for several days.
Soda will also help to get rid of the unpleasant smell in the refrigerator. Just pour it into a jar and put it on the refrigerator door.
REFRESHING THE MICROWAVE
Another keeper of unpleasant odors is the microwave oven. A bowl of water, chopped lemon and mint can help fight them. We put it in the microwave for 2-3 minutes at maximum power.
HOW TO KEEP FRESH IN A BUCKET DRAWER
You can also refresh the trash can. To do this, take a piece of paper, put it on the bottom of the bucket, sprinkle with soda and put a cotton pad with a few drops of essential oil on top.
REFRESHING THE STOCK IN THE SINK
We also use essential oil to freshen up the drain in the sink. Just drip it into the drain and pour boiling water over it.
