  • 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.

  • How To Make Your Home Smell Good In The Summertime

    Making your home smell fresh and clean is usually as easy as choosing your favourite fragrance and spraying it into the air. In the summertime, that is a much more difficult task as the humidity is usually higher and the heat from outside begins to work its way inside. That combination of heat and humidity can make your home smell like last night’s dinner mixed with wet dog. The reason for this is because the air is much heavier when it is humid and it tends to hold onto smells much longer than if the weather was cooler outside.

    This doesn’t mean that your home can’t smell good this summer, it just means that you might have to take some extra steps to keep it smelling fresh and clean longer.

    The summertime usually means citrusy scents, beach fragrances and designer scents that smell like fresh cut grass. You can mimic these summertime fresh scents and use them to make your home smell good using our simple tips. Let’s  take a look:

    Ways To Make Your Home Smell Good In The Summertime

    Automatic Air Fresheners- for a truly hands-off approach to making your home smell good this summer, place some automatic air fresheners in strategic locations throughout your home. With many different fragrances available, you can find your favourite and keep your home smelling good all summer.

    Eucalyptus in Your Bathroom- hanging fresh eucalyptus in your shower can provide a relaxing, rejuvenating spa experience that not only smells good, but also offers antibacterial properties.

    Gel Fresheners- gel air fresheners are perfect for those rooms that are too humid for spray fragrances. These include bathrooms, basements and kitchens. Gel fresheners use essential oils to create a summertime fresh scent that will linger in the heavy, humid air.

    Citrus Simmer Pot- if you have ever made a simmer pot during the cold winter months, you know how effective they can be at making your home smell good. The same idea can be used in the summer using citrus slices and water which you simmer slowly on the stove for a couple of hours per day.

    Wax Melts- wax melts come in a wide range of fragrances and are an easy way to make your home smell fresh and clean all season long.

  • Spring Cleaning Hacks

    For many of us, spring is our favourite time of the year. Finally, the oppressive cold disappears, replaced by fresh, cool days when leaves start to emerge and birds chirp. As we are looking at our life with a much brighter perspective, it is also a good time to reorganize our lives.

    When the sunlight shines straight into our home’s interior, we need to make sure that our home is tidy and livable, once again. During the winter, we largely stay indoors and because we do more things inside the house, it usually becomes quite cluttered. There are many ways to do spring cleaning tasks, but these methods could significantly make your effort more effective:

    1. Prioritize most cluttered and neglected areas: With a quick look around, it is easy to see which parts of your home are badly cluttered and need attention. Unneeded items, debris and dust could easily accumulate in the most used parts of your home and this could happen if your overlook these areas for too long. They may include bathrooms, kitchen, bookshelves and more. Check areas behind the fridge and under the sink and clean them up. Once you clean these areas, you can proceed to other parts of your house. It can be made easier by making a list of the areas in your home and sort them based on the degree of clutter.

     

    1.  Clean windows on cloudy days: When spring cleaning the house, you should wait for cloudy days to clean your windows. When it is bright, streaks are less visible and the sunlight will cause cleaning solution to evaporate too quickly. You can clean the inside and outside parts of your house more effectively on cloudy days to remove any spots and stubborn smudges that could be difficult to see on sunnier days. Make sure to use lint-free, clean cotton clothes that absorb moisture easily for best results.

     

    1. Repurpose items: During spring cleaning, it is common for people to throw away things. However, there could be some items that you can repurpose into something else saving money over buying new. As an example, old mason jars can be used as planters, painted and used in the kids’ arts and crafts room. Some old clothes can also be used as rags, which are useful for cleaning the rest of your home.

     

    1. Make your own cleaners: Making your own household cleaners is easy, affordable and safer for your family. You can find recipes online for all purpose cleaners, floor cleaners and more that are, often times, better than the store-bought ones.

     

    1. Natural remedies for insect repellant: Spring is also the time for insects to come out from hibernation and invade your home. To save money, make your own effective insect repellant barrier by planting mint around the outside of your home.

     

    1. Choose a spring-fresh air freshener: Air fresheners are the best way to make your home smell fresh and clean all season long. Choose a scent that is fresh and flowery, just like spring!

  • How Scents Can Change Your Mood for the Better

    For many of us, a fragrance is simply a scented liquid that we spray in the air or on our furniture and drapes. In reality, fragrant scents are a powerful trigger that can affect out mood and make us either happy or sad, depending on the scent. Not only can it arouse a wide range of moods, but it can help us recall specific memories, such as happy or heartbreaking events in our lives. In fact, each scent has a different effect on every individual and if you want to change your mood for the better, it is important to choose a scent that makes you feel comfortable, relaxed and positive.

    How Different Scents Can Make You Feel

    You should always surround yourself with any kind of fragrance that will have a positive affect you. You can even choose aromatherapy products, which often have therapeutic properties. As an example, chamomile and lavender are known for ensuring better relaxation.

    Here are ways scents may affect your moods positively:

    They suppress stress: Stress doesn’t only ruin your mood, it can really be harmful for your physical health. Distressed people often have high blood pressure, which can contribute to higher incidence of stroke and heart attacks. Try various aromatherapy products that contribute in the reduction of pain and anxiety. In hospitals and various health facilities, it has been proven that scents can have positive effects on our overall wellness.

    They bring back memories: Scents and cognition performance are well connected. In fact, a long-forgotten scent can bring back old memories. You start to remember past experiences in greater details. If you want to improve moods with scents, try to choose those that evoke your positive childhood memories. Even the smell of Crayola crayons can bring back a lot of memories, especially if you loved to draw when you were much younger.

    They remind us about nature: People love everything associated with nature. Certain scents can be associated with specific sights. You may find scents of fresh rain and pine very comforting, while others may prefer scents of flowers. When choosing scents associated with the nature, you should choose those that are associated with each season. For example, springtime scents could include fresh rain, flowers or other scents normally associated with the season. This will bring a complete set of nature-related fragrance in your house.

    When choosing scents, make sure that you choose those that your brain responds the best. Good scents should also provide longer effects, so you can get more benefits from them. In general, you should choose whether you want to get more relaxing vibe or happier mental state.

  • New Spring Scents for Your Home

    It looks as if the wintry weather is beginning to give way to some sunshine and, while many people are still wondering what that bright ball of light in the sky is, the rest of us are already making plans for spring. Extra blankets are being stowed away, our menus are changing from hearty soups and stews, to lighter, fresher recipes using spring vegetables. Another thing that many of us begin to do when the spring feeling is in the air, is spring cleaning.

    Welcoming Spring with Lighter, Floral Scents

    Cleaning away the mustiness of old man winter to welcome spring and it bright, colourful flowers is something that has become a tradition in many homes around the world. It signifies a new beginning, a fresh start if you will, and it brings along with it a wide range of fresh scents that clear away the wintry scents of wood, cinnamon and orange. Spring scents are lighter and much more floral smelling and are designed to help make your home smell fresh and clean whenever guests are over or you come home from a long workday.

    Some of the more popular springtime scents combine the scents of spring flowers such as hibiscus, lavender and peony, April rain showers, lemon and peach blossom. Any one of these scents would create a fresh, springtime smell, but when designer fragrance companies bring them together, they become so much more. Our homes will smell better and they will instantly become more inviting to both family and friends as they come over to celebrate the warmer weather and newly blossomed trees and shrubbery.

    Not All Scents are Created Equal

    Just because a fragrance has a beautiful springtime picture on the container, doesn’t always mean it will smell good. How many times have you purchased a fragrance for your home or car and decided that it was too strong smelling, not strong enough or it just didn’t smell the way you thought it would. Scents are like people, they are all different and not everyone is as likable as another. A scent that you like, might not appeal to someone else and that is why AirPure creates our fragrances using natural ingredients that ensure the scent you smell is as close to what you would smell in nature. After all, when we think of the scent of lavender or peach nectar, our minds immediately associate it with the natural smell of that particular scent.

    The best way to find a scent you like is to try it, but to be sure you will like it, order your home or auto fragrances from AirPure and get the best fragrances at the best prices every day.

  • The Benefits of Car Air Fresheners

    Air fresheners as we know them have been around since the middle of the 20th century. Since their introduction, many manufacturers have come up with their own styles, designs and scents and the market for air fresheners has seen incredible growth throughout the world. While people use air fresheners everywhere from the home and office, to gym bags, locker rooms and more, the most important use of air fresheners is in our cars.

    Our cars are confined spaces that see a lot of abuse. From snowy or muddy shoes, to leftover containers, spilled coffee and the aroma of that pizza you brought home last night. The combination of smells, dirt and debris can leave our vehicles smelling bad and an air freshener can take that unpleasantness and turn it into an island breeze, lavender meadow or any other scent you like.

    Your Smelly Car

    Imagine just how bad your car would smell without air fresheners. The odours from daily use tend to linger and they could leave your car smelling so bad that even your date might reconsider getting in. This could be bad for your social life and your overall happiness. To think that an inexpensive car air freshener could change all of that and leave you and your car happier and smelling fresh and clean is impressive. Let’s say that you are a smoker. You try your best not to smoke in your car but it is cold outside. Or maybe traffic has you stressed out. So, you light up in your car, crack a window and do your best to direct the smoke outside. It doesn’t always work and although you don’t notice it, soon your car will begin to smell like an ashtray and so will everything in it. Your clothes, your briefcase, your passenger’s clothes and more. That is a smell that is difficult to remove and it could cost you friends or in expensive dry-cleaning bills.

    Different Scents for Different Tastes

    Now, everyone has their own personal preferences when it comes to fragrances and car air fresheners offer something for everyone. Natural fragrances such as mountain air, sea fragrance, flowers like rose, lavender or fruits, orange or pineapple are all very effective at eliminating odours and keeping your car smelling fresh and clean. Not only will a car air freshener bring fresh air, but also comfort inside your car. Air fresheners for cars are affordable and the results they bring are more than worth the price.

  • New Year, New Home-Home Interior Resolutions for 2018

    Whether you want to keep up with the newest interior design trends for 2018 or your house is just due for a decor update, it is a good idea to make it one of your New Year’s resolutions to make your home more beautiful, more comfortable and more inviting with these easy design tips. Remember, no interior design is complete without a fresh new fragrance to give it that welcoming appeal that your friends, family and guests will rave about!

    For your New Year’s resolution, apply these latest design elements to your home and add some style appeal:

    Maximalism: Maximalism consists of contrasting patterns and prints. This design is a move away from the minimalistic style that has dominated the interior market in the past few years. You should use maximalism design if you want to express yourself and your personal sense of style more. Pair bold scents with this design style for maximum effect.

    Add more comfortable spaces: In many places, the boundaries between leisure and work are becoming blurred. There’s currently a shift toward a more casual design with focus on experience, instead of aesthetics. This trend is reflected in surface finished and furniture. The use of enveloping silhouette, velvet and other tactile fabrics will grow in popularity this year. Both in the workplace and houses, people are looking for reassurances and extra comfort. A warm, comforting scent pairs well with this look.

    Monochrome: This trend lets you opt for a calmer tonal interior with layered shades that have the same color. When done properly, the results can be very sophisticated looking. Proper monochrome tones can be applied to furniture, tiles, paint and others. Each color has dozens of shades that can be arranged to create a degree of subtlety. Monochrome should be an excellent platform for any minimalist design. This look requires a sophisticated fragrance such as bamboo or mint accents.

    Brass: Brass elements will make a re-entry into interior design styles this year. They can give living room furniture and kitchen cabinets an aged finish. They may also provide shine for vintage inspired light fixtures and serving wares. Brass can be used in bathrooms to create an overall elegant element but be sure not to overdo it as it can become an overpowering element in smaller rooms. A woodsy scent will tie your room together.

    Wabi-Sabi: A unique Japanese art, Wabi-Sabi uses imperfection to find beauty. In home design, it can be implemented by using hand-painted or handmade items, such as pottery or rough linens. The result can be organically aesthetic and deeply personal. Choose your favourite fragrance with this interior design look and make your room you own.
