5 things that make your home smell good all the time


According to Muffetta Krueger, founder of Muffetta’s Domestic Assistants, indoor house plants are known for their air-purifying qualities and pleasant scents. Flowers are a classic and elegant way to add a touch of fragrance to any room. Choose blooms with a scent that appeals to you, such as roses, jasmine, freesia, lavender, lilacs, peonies, or sweet peas.


One great way to make your home smell nice is to create festive pots of pot pourri. Create your own signature scent by simmering a pot of water with citrus slices, cinnamon sticks, and herbs like rosemary. These not only add a delightful aroma but also infuse your home with a touch of natural elegance that can be positioned throughout the home.


‘Essential oils offer a concentrated and customizable way to fragrance your home, says cleaning expert Prerna Jain. To create a diffuser blend, add a few drops of your chosen essential oil to a carrier oil like water or jojoba oil. Place the diffuser in a central location, such as the living room or hallway, to allow the scent to permeate the air. We like the Jack & Rose room diffuser from Amazon, which has adopted noise reduction technology, ensuring that it operates quietly with no water dripping sounds, which creates a relaxing and soothing environment. You can also adapt your essential oil fragrances depending on the seasons and time of year. Embrace fresh, citrusy scents in summer, transitioning to warm, cozy aromas like cinnamon or vanilla during colder months.


Parveen Garg, manager at Ola Clean, suggests investing in quality linen and room sprays that resonate with you, to make your home smell nice all the time. ‘Give your upholstery, curtains, and even bed linens a light spritz for an instant boost of freshness,’ Parveen says. ‘Opt for calming scents like chamomile for bedrooms and invigorating ones like citrus for living areas.’


Baking soda works wonders as a natural deodorizer. This cleaning staple is completely natural and can help combat lingering smells, especially in areas like the kitchen or bathroom. There are various ways to clean with baking soda, but to make a home smell great, you can place small bowls of baking soda in areas prone to bad smells, such as in your refrigerator, and use it to refresh fabrics. Other places may include where shoes are kept or a pet’s bed.
