Masking unpleasant odours in your home can often pose a considerable challenge. Whether it involves beef fondue with the whole family, washing the team football kit, fried onions, a wet dog, preparing prawns in garlic or the lingering pongs in the aftermath of a party, comprising cigarette smoke, food smells or other unpleasant odours. Bad smells waft about the house every now and then, and they can prove difficult to shift. Fortunately, there are ample means of conveniently masking unpleasant household smells nowadays. After all, everyone wants their home to smell fresh and clean. This article provides a number of handy tips to help rid your home of unpleasant odours.

Ventilate regularly

The first and simplest tip we can give you to remove unpleasant odours is to air your home regularly. Simply opening windows and doors is already half the battle. Regrettably, most places in Europe end up in the throes of winter at some stage. While regularly airing your home is essential, that doesn’t mean you need to do it when it’s -5 outside or raining cats and dogs, just to get rid of those nasty smells. Fortunately, there are other solutions. 

Vinegar and citrus fruits help mask bad smells

Vinegar is an absolute godsend when it comes to masking odours. It simply absorbs them, as it were. Just set a bowl of vinegar in the room where you are most bothered by smells, therefore, and you will be rid of them within 24 hours. Citrus fruits are also a useful tip. Heat a pan of water on the hob, then add the grated peel of a few citrus fruits. You might also prefer to add a cinnamon stick and cloves in winter. As the water simmers, it fills your home with a delightful fragrance!

Use fragrance candles, chips or oil
