  • 6 Spring Cleaning Tips From Airpure

    Spring is finally upon us and while the weather begins to warm up, many of us are opening up our windows and letting the fresh, clean smell of the season into our homes. Spring is also the time of year that we deep clean our homes and get rid of some of the clutter that might have built up over the winter. We can air out our homes, clean them from top to bottom and get them smelling fresh and clean for the season.

    If you haven’t started your spring cleaning yet, keep reading for some useful tips that will help you make the most of your spring cleaning tasks this season.

    6 Spring Cleaning Tips

    De-Clutter- the first step in cleaning your home for spring is to get rid of all of the clutter. A cluttered, messy home can become stressful and lead to depression. De-clutter, organise and create a stress-free home for spring!

    Wash Walls And Windows First- once you have decluttered your home, start the cleaning process by doing walls and windows first. This will remove built-up dust, grease from cooking and anything else that might have found its way onto your walls or windows during the winter.

    Choose A Cleaning System That Works For You- whether you like to clean from top to bottom, start with kitchen and bathrooms or end with those often challenging rooms, create a plan and stick to it. Being organised will make spring cleaning much easier and ensure that you don’t miss anything.

    Choose Green Cleaning Supplies- avoid cleaning products that are full of harsh chemicals and choose green cleaning products instead. This will ensure the safety of your family and your pets while protecting the environment at the same time.

    Change Your HVAC Filter- while you are cleaning your home thoroughly for spring, why not clean your air as well? Changing the filter in your furnace or AC unit can make a dramatic difference in the air quality of your home. This can also help reduce the amount of times you need to dust your home and provide relief for allergy sufferers in your family.

    Purchase New Fragrances For Your Home- now that your home is spring clean throughout, add some fresh spring scents with plug-in air fresheners, scented candles and more!

  • 5 Offensive Odours In Your House That Only Your Guests Can Smell

    Have you ever noticed that when you are in your own home, certain smells don’t bother you, but when you are in someone else’s home, those same smells become offensive? Research says that we often adapt to the smells around us which is why the offensive odours in our own homes don’t bother us. But what about others? If there are odours in their home that we don’t like, are there odours in our homes that they don’t like? That could get embarrassing if we don’t get to those odours before guests arrive.

    Let’s Take A Look At 5 Odours In Your House That Only Your Guests Can Smell:

    Kitchen- your kitchen is the source of a wide range of smells and when these smells combine together, the result can be bad. From kitchen drains, garbage cans and the inside of your refrigerator, to your pantry, even last night’s dinner, kitchen odours tend to linger. Keep your kitchen smelling fresh and clean with an air freshening spray.

    Your Bed- that’s right, your bed can have a very offensive odour to your guests. When we sleep, our bodies release oils, dead skin and sweat. These can make bedding smell rather bad. To avoid the embarrassment of your bedding smelling bad, wash your bedding often and be sure to use a plug-in air freshener in your bedroom between washes.

    Litter Box- while your cat’s litter box might smell clean to you, it might not smell as nice to your guests. Pet smell, especially cat urine, is incredibly powerful and it can spread throughout your home. Be sure to use a blacklight to look for any cat urine that might have sprayed onto a nearby wall or the floor near your cat’s litter box.

    Dog Blankets- speaking of pet smells, your dog has a very powerful odour that you might have gotten used to, but your guests have not. From your dog’s bed, to his blanket, if you aren’t cleaning these on a regular basis, your guests will notice right away. The best way to remove the smell of dog from your home is to vacuum your carpets and furniture daily, clean your pet’s bedding and place air fresheners throughout your home.

    Mustiness- this is especially noticeable in older homes or homes that have not been lived in for a while. If your basement has flooded, the musty smell will be even worse. Use a dehumidifier to dry the air, open some windows and place a reed diffuser near the areas which smell the strongest.

  • Where Should I Position My New Reed Diffuser/Home Fragrance?

    Reed diffusers are typically attractive bottle-like vessels that contain a specific type of fragrant oil. Reeds are inserted into the bottle, which enables the fragrance to diffuse more easily into the living space. You can insert as many reeds as you want to control the level of diffusion and by putting in more reeds, you will increase the intensity of the scent. Normally, reed diffusers use three or four reeds, but you can add more as needed.

     Choose The Location Carefully

    The number of reeds depends on the size of your room. The bigger the room, the more reeds that you may need to put in, so the scent will be stronger. One crucial factor when using a reed diffuser is the location. You need to carefully choose the location you want to place your reed diffuser, because where you place it can have a big impact and make a real difference in how your home smells. Before placing your reed diffuser, be sure to check the airflow in the room.

    Tips For Choosing The Right Spot For Your Reed Diffuser

    • Make sure that you choose a location which will allow for the fragrance to effectively circulate inside the room or even throughout the entire house.
    • Always make sure that the diffuser is out of the reach of the pets and small children.
    • Avoid radiators and windows as heat will make the fragrance to evaporate faster.
    • The area should be dry and not exposed to direct sunlight.
    • Choose high traffic areas such as bathrooms, hallways or interior doorways.
    • Aim a fan at just above the diffuser to concentrate the scent at specific area of your room, such as your bed or work desk.
    • Make sure vents push fresh air into your room, instead of sucking air from the room as this will make the scent dissipate faster and your reed diffuser will be depleted much more quickly.

    Finally, when placing your reed diffuser, make sure that you wipe down the bottle to remove any trace of the oil and place an oil-resistant object under the diffuser, so the surface of the desk will be protected from the oil.

  • 6 Tips for Keeping Your House Clean, Even If You Have a Dog

    As any dog owner already knows, keeping your house clean with a pet can be a challenge. From dog hair on just about every surface of your home, to spilled food and water bowls, dirt and mud tracked in from the outside and that “dog smell” that many dog owners pretend they don’t notice, but deep down inside, they do.

    Keeping your home clean and fresh smelling when you have a dog doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming when you follow some simple tips. They start with your dog because, after all, that is the source of most of the mess.

    Bathe Your Dog

    Bathe your dog regularly. If your dog hates bath time, try to make him more comfortable by purchasing a relaxing, all-natural pet wash that helps to calm him. You can also try to make it fun by playing a game with him in the water or by bringing in his favourite toy.

    Brush Your Dog

    Once you have your dog on a regular bath routine, you will want to brush him often. This is especially important for long-hair dog who have a tendency to shed all over the furniture, carpet and any other surface their hair decides to adhere to. Keeping your dog brushed regularly will help reduce the amount of shedding and hair that is all over your home.

    Focus On Outside Dirt

    So now we that have your dog washed and brushed, he should be all clean, for the moment at least. Now you have to focus on the dirt that he tracks in from the outside. You could add a door mat made of a rough or coarse material, placing one both inside and outside of the door your dog usually enters through. This will help catch a lot of the dirt from his paws keeping your floors cleaner.

    Remove Pet Hair

    Next, we can focus on the pet hair that is all over the house. You can purchase a specially made rubber glove that you slip on and rub across your furniture, drapes and other cloth surfaces to remove a large percentage of the pet hair. These can be found at most pet stores and are a very effective means of removing pet hair from your home.

    Clean Your House

    Now we can clean house as you normally would with an emphasis on vacuuming and cleaning hard surfaces with a disinfectant cleaner. This will not only remove more of the pet hair, but also most of the pet smell that can linger.

    Clean The Air

    Finally, once your home is clean and your pet is washed, brushed and smelling great, you can freshen the air using Naturally Gone Pet Odour Spray. This product, made in the UK, is a highly effective deodoriser that will leave your home smelling fresh and clean and guests wondering if you got rid of your dog.

    If you want to keep your home smelling fresh and clean even with a dog, follow these simple tips and enjoy the breath of fresh air while enjoying your pet.

  • Transform Your Room With a New Scent

    We all have a favourite room in our home. One that helps us to relax after a stressful day and that has that “homey” feel we can’t get anywhere else. Why does that room make us feel so good and why do we tend to gravitate towards that particular room when we have many others to choose from? Chances are it is a combination of furnishings, layout and, of course, smell.

    The Science of Smell

    Our sense of smell is 10,000 more powerful than any other sense and it is linked directly to our subconscious and collective unconscious mind where all of our memories are stored. There are certain smells that work to call us and have a direct effect on our nervous systems. When we smell them, we immediately begin to relax and feel good as mood enhancers like serotonin endorphins are released throughout our bodies. The importance of the home fragrances we choose are increased during the summertime as our bodies begin to acclimate to the warmer weather and the humidity increases the potency of many household smells, both good and bad.

    Transform Any Room Into Your Favourite

    What if you have a room that you want to be your favourite but you aren’t getting the same feelings as you do in your favourite room? Maybe this other room has a better view or it has more space for you to relax and read, get work done or take a nap. In most cases, adding your favourite scent can transform a room, completely changing its mood and yours. You might be surprised by the difference a scent can make, especially if that scent works within your body to create soothing images and stress relieving feelings that will help you relax.

    Airpure For All Of Your Home Fragrance Needs

    Airpure carries a wide range of scents, all designed to provide a fresh, clean smell to any room of your home and to help you transform a room into your new favourite.
