An effective life hack for a pleasant smell in the house

The kitchen is a place of contrasts. In addition to the most appetising, inviting aromas of home baking, you may also find not-so-pleasant smells of burnt food or spoiled food that you didn't get out of the fridge in time.

Sometimes the smells penetrate so deeply into the surfaces and settle on the fabric upholstery that neither ventilation nor expensive aroma diffusers help. Read the OBOZREVATEL article on how to make the kitchen always smell good.

Cleaning experts advise one interesting life hack that will definitely help you get rid of annoying odours. You don't have to spend too much time or money. By making special scented sachets, you can forget about a persistent unpleasant smell for a long time.

All you need is a small cloth bag, which you can buy or sew, and some fragrant herbs.

The following will do:

  • lavender
  • oregano
  • lemon balm
  • clove
  • rosemary
  • mint
  • marjoram
  • lemongrass
  • thyme
  • rose petals
  • dried citrus peel.

For sewing a bag, you need to choose natural fabrics: cotton, linen, canvas or even burlap. Synthetics will not "breathe" and will not allow the aroma of herbs to pass through. The bag can be sewn around the perimeter, or you can leave the top open and tie it with a decorative ribbon - so the filling can be changed periodically.

These sachets can be used to decorate the interior or put them in a cupboard, having previously cleaned the surface. You can soak the fabric with a few drops of essential oils.

By the way, according to one version, essential oils have medicinal properties, so they are often used in aromatherapy. Experts advise choosing an oil with the scent of lemon, orange or grapefruit. Citrus aromas of essential oils can be mixed with vinegar when cleaning. The oils neutralise the pungent smell of vinegar. Having prepared such a solution, you can wash the floor and other surfaces in the room.
