Making your home smell fresh and clean is usually as easy as choosing your favourite fragrance and spraying it into the air. In the summertime, that is a much more difficult task as the humidity is usually higher and the heat from outside begins to work its way inside. That combination of heat and humidity can make your home smell like last night’s dinner mixed with wet dog. The reason for this is because the air is much heavier when it is humid and it tends to hold onto smells much longer than if the weather was cooler outside.
This doesn’t mean that your home can’t smell good this summer, it just means that you might have to take some extra steps to keep it smelling fresh and clean longer.
The summertime usually means citrusy scents, beach fragrances and designer scents that smell like fresh cut grass. You can mimic these summertime fresh scents and use them to make your home smell good using our simple tips. Let’s take a look:
Ways To Make Your Home Smell Good In The Summertime
Automatic Air Fresheners- for a truly hands-off approach to making your home smell good this summer, place some automatic air fresheners in strategic locations throughout your home. With many different fragrances available, you can find your favourite and keep your home smelling good all summer.
Eucalyptus in Your Bathroom- hanging fresh eucalyptus in your shower can provide a relaxing, rejuvenating spa experience that not only smells good, but also offers antibacterial properties.
Gel Fresheners- gel air fresheners are perfect for those rooms that are too humid for spray fragrances. These include bathrooms, basements and kitchens. Gel fresheners use essential oils to create a summertime fresh scent that will linger in the heavy, humid air.
Citrus Simmer Pot- if you have ever made a simmer pot during the cold winter months, you know how effective they can be at making your home smell good. The same idea can be used in the summer using citrus slices and water which you simmer slowly on the stove for a couple of hours per day.
