1. Use scented trash bags.
According to Cecilia from What Mommy Does, she uses a “double bag” method to keep odors under control in her kitchen and home.
First she uses leftover over grocery bags to wrap up meat trays, peels and other food items that are likely to go rancid in the trash then she lines her garbage can with Glad Kitchen Pro bags that are scented with Febreeze.
This helps to neutralize odors and keep your kitchen smelling fresh for longer.
2. Make stove-top pot pourri before having guests.
If you want to freshen your home in a hurry and impress your house guests with a scent that they’ll remember, then you got to try this recipe from Homedit for homemade pot pourri.
You’ll need a few ingredients such as pineapple juice, coconut extract and orange slices which will be added to a pot of boiling water to create an amazing scent that’ll mask some of the harshest odors.
3. Check your garbage disposal.
Your garbage disposal can emit some pretty offensive odors when not cleaned regulary.
Make sure to add weekly garbage disposal deep cleanings to your chores. Also, don’t forget to lift the flanges to scrub away left over food and other grime.

4. Place scented candles in your closets.
Simply place scented candles in the closets where you store your clothes and linens. The fabrics will absorb the scent and everytime you open the door the smell will softly fill the room.
5. Place dryer sheets inbetween and under your sofa’s cushions.
Dryer sheets can be used for more than softening fabric and making your clothes smell great.
You can also place a few sheets under and inbetween your sofa’s cushions to freshen up your furniture and add a pleasant scent to any room.
7. Get a few indoor plants.
Certain houseplants such as the Peace Lily are fantastic for cleaning the air (this has been proven and backed by NASA!) also a few scented house plants such as plants from the mint family, Orchids or Jasmine would definitely keep your home pleasantly scented.
8. Spray fragrance on your air filters.
If you want to create a lasting scent throughout your home, you can try spraying your favorite fragrance on your air filters when replacing them or you can use these, either way your home will smell amazing!
9. Use the natural powers of fresh air.
Open your windows often during the day to let in fresh air.
Opening your windows can work wonders especially if you do this while cooking strong odored foods such as fish or eggs that leave lingering odors.
10. Sanitize the little things.
When keeping your home smelling fresh, it could be the little things collectively making a stench. The little things include old kitchen sponges, cutting boards and mops.
Make sure that you are taking the time to properly clean, sanitize and even replace these items every couple of months.
