5 Simple Ways to Naturally Freshen Up Your Home

Opening your windows is the simplest and most affordable way to freshen the air in your home. But unfortunately, because winter is just right around the corner, we can no longer keep our windows open. And during this season of course, purifying and refreshing your home’s indoor air is still a must.  Now we all know that most store-bought air fresheners don’t really “freshen” the air and instead just covers up the air with nice scents. And what’s even more disappointing is that they even add more toxins into the air instead of removing them.  So if you’re all for smelling nice clean air inside your home and you value your health more than anything, then read up ‘coz we’ve got just the perfect solutions:

1:  Put more (and we mean more) houseplants.

Everyone knows how plants do such a great job in purifying the air, and that of course includes the air inside our homes! So when we said ‘more’, we meant trying your best to put plant/s in each area of your home. There’s a wide array of indoor plants you can choose from and most of them don’t even require strict maintenance. You can also find plenty of ways to let the houseplants blend into your home’s aesthetic, just like our Decorative Geometric Planters. Get bamboo palms, golden pothos, aloe vera, peace lilies, or ferns for exceptional detoxification without effort.

2:  Cook up some citrus and spice staples.

Don’t throw away the orange, lime or lemon peels you used in cooking. Instead, boil them up with some herbs and spices in a big pot of water. You can choose to put cinnamon sticks, fresh rosemary, mint leaves, or other herbs you prefer. While doing so, don’t turn on your rangehood fan so that the steam and the smell will fill your home.

3:  Make use of your favorite coffee.

Waking up to the smell of coffee is heaven to you, then make use of that to freshen up the air in your home, especially during the cold season. When you grind, brew, and bake coffee, it’ll already absorb the powerful odors in your kitchen, plus it will sure enliven your senses. And don’t throw those coffee grounds! Gather them up and place them in small containers like ashtrays, ramekins, or small bowls and distribute those in different parts of your home to naturally absorb bad odors. Put those near trash bins, in pet areas, behind the toilet seat, or near your kitchen stove.

4:  Make a natural carpet deodorizer.

If there’s one thing in your home that absorbs most of the odors and bacteria, that’ll be your carpet, right? So if you truly want to freshen up your home, you must not forget your carpet!

Apart from of course keeping it clean, you can freshen up your carpet or carpet flooring every now and then with this powder deodorizer: a mixture of ½ cup baking soda, 2 tsp dried rosemary, and lavender essential oil. Just sprinkle the powder mixture, let it sit for 20 minutes, then vacuum up!
