Eliminate odors from waste disposal
The secret to a smell-good space is not to spray fragrance on top of stinky stuff, but get rid of the source that created the smell. All you have to do to keep your waste disposal clean is to put small scraps of food in it and run cold water while it disposes the waste. Freshen your waste disposal by pouring 1/4 cup of baking soda then add a cup of white vinegar. It is the greenest way to clean away mineral deposits which is created by smelly germs.
Open windows to bring fresh air in
It is simple and is the easiest way to bring freshness into your house. Open windows on multiple sides of your house to get a cross breeze, as the air blows through, your entire space will feel cleaner.
Clean and refresh soft surfaces
Soft surfaces like carpet, throw pillow, bed linens and window covers are magnets for bad smells. Regular maintenance such as vacuum and spot-treat on these soft surfaces is the easiest way to stay clean. Spray some room sprays or linen sprays every time after your clean to give the extra cleanliness.
Light candle throughout the house
Whether candles are scented or unscented, it creates a scented ambience of warmth, style and sophistication of your house. You can place candles in reading nooks, living rooms, bedrooms or entry points to amplify the look and feel of these spots in your home.

Reed diffusers are a great way to add beautiful scent to your home without power outlet or open flame. However, to place diffusers in the right locations around your house is the key to get the most benefits out from it, match the size of the diffuser to the size of the space.
