An effective life hack for a pleasant scent at home

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

Sometimes odors penetrate so deeply into surfaces and settle on 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 an interesting life hack that will definitely help get rid of annoying odors. You don't have to spend too much time or money. By making special scented sachets with your own hands, you can forget about a persistent unpleasant odor for a long time.

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

The following are suitable for filling:

  • Lavender
  • Oregano
  • Lemon balm
  • Cloves
  • 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 let the aroma of herbs through well. 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.

Such bags can be used to decorate the interior or placed in a wardrobe after cleaning the surface. You can also 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 while cleaning. The oils neutralize the pungent odor of vinegar. Having prepared such a solution, you can wash the floor and other surfaces in the room.
