7 Ways to Make Your Home Smell Fresh & Clean! DIY Air Fresheners! (Clean My Space)


What if I told that I can show you how
to make your house to smell amazing with things you already had at home for very little money. Would you be into it? I thought so! All right, lets get to it. Stovetop
Simmer, a great way to make your whole house, well at least your main floor,
smelling incredible is just to simple boil up some nice smelly ingredients in a pot
with water or you can also do this in crock-pot and let it simmer all day. The
concept is the same, fill your vessel half way with water, add any combination of
nice ingredients. So, here I have cinnamon, cloves, oranges and vanilla
extract. The goal here is you are going to bring to a boil or you are going to heat
your slow cooker on low and you are going let your slow cooker sit all day and
simmer and once this has hit a boil you will bring it down to simmer and let that
go for a couple of hours. If its a pot on the stove make sure its attended and this,
thankfully, can be left unattended. Joe Fresh, If you’ve every been to the
perfume department in a fancy department store, you’ve probably seen little cups
with coffee grinds sitting out, or coffee beans. Then you just give it a quick smell
between perfumes and that helps cleanse your palate. Well, coffee grinds can actually help deodorize any space in your home. Just put them into a bowl or an open-air container like this. Stick them anywhere that needs deodorizing, such as your closet, drawers. Leave it
there and you’ll see the coffee grinds will start to absorb all of that odor.
Change it out fairly regularly. It won’t smell like coffee, but those odors
will be gone. Vanilla Vibes: if you love the vanilla
vibe as much as I do. Here is a great way you can use vanilla extract to help
make your fridge smell better. Now, there are two things you can do. The first one
is you can wipe the plastic interior parts of your fridge down which a little bit of
vanilla extract on a paper towel. That helps neutralize odors and plastic is
porous so this really helps. The other thing you can do is soak a couple of
cotton balls in vanilla extract, leave that in a bowl, just open air in the
fridge somewhere and that will help neutralize the odors as well. Tobacco TKO. Now this one comes from my mother-in-law, Cindy, who is from Brampton, Ontario, by way of Blackpool,
England. Cindy used to throw crazy parties in her house back in the ’70s and even
though their house wasn’t a smoking house, when their friends came over to party, the
cigarettes came out. That being said, she didn’t want the house smelling like
tobacco the next day. Especially cause she was raising my future husband and two
brothers-in-law in there. So what she ended up doing was putting bowls all
around the house filled with white vinegar. Now, the house doesn’t smell like
vinegar but the vinegar absorbed all of the odors from the tobacco. Now this works
not only on tobacco, but any other sort of not-so-good smell in the house so you can
use it while you’re cooking, you can put some near kitty litter. Of course, if you
have smokers in the house or any other strong odor that you don’t like, this
works like a charm. Long time fans of Clean My Space know, I
love essential oils. And I use them wherever I can and you can use them to
help deodorize and spruce up any space in your home as well and it’s quite simple to
do. If you have a nebulizer, you can some essential oils to that, you can make your
own reed diffuser, we have a video on that which I will link down below, but some
easy, simple things you can do that really require no effort at all. Just take a
little cotton ball, put it in a bowl and add about 15 drops of your favorite
essential oil or blend of essential oils and plant that anywhere in your house. It
will just help freshen up the space and gently disperse that smell. Here are a couple of other fun things you
can do with essential oils around the house. Every time you change out your
furnace filter, drop five or 10 drops of your favorite essential oil right onto the
furnace filter. You can also put a few drops on your light bulb, that way every
time you flick on the light, you’ll disperse a nice, gentle scent. Baking Soda Braun. If you have even
watched one Clean My Space video, you have probably heard me talk about baking soda
because it’s great for cleaning but it is even better for deodorizing. I can’t
explain the science behind it but I can tell you, it is a master when it comes to
eating up odors. So, what I like to do with baking soda is simply dump some of it into
a container, you can put this anywhere around the house and it will simply absorb
odors. That’s why people love putting baking soda in the fridge. The other thing
you can do is put some baking soda in a sachet like this or sachet, I know this is
polarizing but, if you put this in the sock drawer or a closet, it will really
help remove odors. And finally, I love using baking soda on soft surfaces like carpet
and upholstery. Just sprinkle it on there, leave it for 10, 15, 20 minutes and then
vacuum it up. That baking soda will help lift dirt to the surface but it will also
take any odors with it. I love the smell of coffee and well all of
the solutions that we talked about are great ways to make your home smell nice.
The real way to deodorize your home is to clean the smell at the source. So that
means, you’ve got to clean your house on a regular basis. Specifically, if you notice
that your house is smelly, here’s some things that you can do. Make sure you have
a no shoes in the house policy or indoor shoes only. We talk about this a lot, but
shoes track in dirt and dirt smells. Also, make sure you’re vacuuming your soft
surfaces, carpets and upholstery on a regular basis. You also want to empty your
garbages because that leads to odors as well. And make sure that you open your
windows. Let that fresh air come in, it will really make your house smell amazing. Check out that simmering action. That is
one of my absolute favorite scents. It’s a combination of vanilla, cinnamon, citrus –
oranges – and cloves. And my house smells amazing. So now, you know how to make your
house smell amazing too. Whether it’s filling your home with some nice simple
scents or removing odors all together, my goal was to help you figure out how to do
that without having to lay out any big bucks. The common question this week, and
I’m very curious to see your answers, so please fill the comments section with
them, what are your favorite scent combinations. I mean, I know a few that I
really like. I love rosemary, lemon, and vanilla. That mixed together is
phenomenal. But, I’d love to know what else is good and exciting and smells
wonderful. What really revs you up when it comes to the scents? Let me know in the
comments down below. If you’re interested in seeing what I’m up
to during the week aside from scrubbing, you can follow me on Instagram, I’m
@Melissamaker. The guy whose shirt needs to be deodorized, he is @Thechadreynolds
and we are @cleanmyspace. There’s a button down there that let’s me know you care so
click it if you liked this video and click this button right here to subscribe and
begin your journey to a cleaner life. Thanks so much for watching, and we’ll see
you next time. Well it’s that special time of the week
where I get to throw you to two other videos I think you’re going to love. The first
one talks all about cleaning with lemons, a pretty fantastic thing if I may say so
myself. The second one is our moving video, the first video of our moving
series. You haven’t seen it yet, you need to check it out because frankly, even if
you’re not moving, it’s just good stuff to know. All right guys, see you next week.

Take your vacuum cleaner clean it take the dirt out you can put a bounce sheet in it or also you could take a cotton boil and put your favorite will on it or spray something on a paper towel and put that in the canister it will make your whole house smell good when you are vacuum mean my favorite is one of those bounce strips and also you can sprinkle some potpourri on your floor when your canister is clean and suck it up with the vacuum and it will put a scent all through the air

actually any kind of oil, even from finger tips will cause the bulbs to have a shorter life. This is why when you change your light bulbs you should wipe your finger prints off of it immediately. You should dry dust your bulbs occasionally, as well.

Is she what we have to call an 'Influencer' nowadays? She's missed out the main ways to make your home smell great. (A) Stop my friend 'Big Bubba' from farting every 5 minutes while he's raiding my food store. (B) Scrape the mould off your fridge once it gets to an inch thick. (C) Stop burying your victims under the patio unless they are fully dried out..

If you spray vinegar in your kitty’s litter, your kitty will find somewhere else to pee and poo. Cats have a strong sense of smell, they do not like the smell of vinegar. I suggest cleaning your kitty’s litter pan with vinegar soap and water when changing and putting fresh litter in the pan.

I like to finger smear a few drops of essential oil (I like vanilla or sandalwood) on the inside of the cardboard tube on a new roll of toilet paper. Keeps a light fresh scent in the bathroom without adding another item to wipe down during the weekly cleaning. The spinning of the roll during usage helps distribute the scent.

Do you or anyone else have any idea how to make a neighbor's outside wall that is part of your condo entrance smell better from the neighbor's constant smoking and weed smoking that is literally permiating the wall clear to the outside so it is quite disgusting smelling especially in the hot summer? The outside of wall is wood planks and the HOA doesn't seem to think they can deal with it.
