  • 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.
