~I Want Mine To Smell Good~
January 19, 2017 3:50pm CST
You know those homes that you walk into and they smell good at all times? The scent just takes you to some paradise somewhere. It's amazing to me. No matter how much I clean or how much air freshener I spray my home only smells good for a certain length of time... What do these people do to have their home always smelling good? Do you have any tips or tricks to make your house smell good all the time?

Our house smells good like that. I attribute it to the use of our sensei burner, and the right scent. We use a light cucumber scent, and it is nice and uplifting, or so we've been told. I also think that pets and their dander leave a bit of a scent of their own-we don't have any pets here, so that might have something to do with it.

@LovingMyBabies They are sold like avon, from individual dealers. I would be careful with kids, we have 2 nightlights with burners in them, they are so nice. Do a search online to see if they are sold in your country. They are so popular up here.

They have the electric burners where you can burn wax melts at walmart they have a lot of nice ones. My girlfriend started using the unstopables fabric softener beads in hers and the smell lasts longer than some of the wax melts out there. We have a dog and you are not going to cover the smell from it.

I use wax melts in warmer units. I have 4 going at all times. Really does make a home smell good and the variety of the fragrances are numerous. However, with little ones running around, I would place them up high. The melted wax does not burn skin, but sure is messy if spilled. Scentsy wax melts are the longest lasting, but cost more. Other wax melts work well too.

I have an old two story house that is airy and drafty so it never stuffs up. If I need to refresh one room I just open all the windows. I know that a drafty house is not the answer to making a home smell good. This might give you some ideas
Has this happened to you: You walk into your home after being gone at work or out shopping, and whoa…something smells funky! But where is it coming from? You sniff. You search. You’re stumped. Your home can be filled with all sorts of things t

@LovingMyBabies My wife uses some of the suggestions I've seen here in the comments, such as scented wax and burning candles. With your kids running about, you may want to look at options that don't use flame or heat, though.

I find houses with houseplants usually smell the best to me...but then what smells good to many people smells horrible to me. I can not stand the smell of air fresheners, or chemical scents (dryer sheets are the absolute worst. My house smells of whatever happens to be cooking when we're at home, but I'll admit it does smell a bit dankish when we've been away for a few days.

My homes both smell great naturally, because I keep everything clean. Cooking odors can be stinky or good, but I run the exhaust. That being said, I love matching scented candles, wax melters, scented oils, and room sprays. We order them online.

Ok I have that type of home and so does a lot of my loved ones. My brother has plug ins from the yankee candle shop. He also has a difuser oh so awesome but expensive. I read that the one wish.com has is worth the month. I am buying mine there. I buy candles from bath and body only when on sale. I have a candle warmer off amazon. The candle smells so good my neighbors love it. To spruce that up I am buying scented oil to drop in the candle. I also have fabreeze plug in from walmart. Now I check most plug in an fabreeze last the longest. My mom has them and it's devine in here. If you want you cna buy a good oil and a cheaper candle with no scent and set it on a warmer. it does not heat a lot to use a lot of current. Yankee candle has the tarts oh they smell so good. Buy about 6 of them and open them all up. place them on a small dish an bam your house will be like the store. The bigger the space the less you will smell. good luck.
