10 Best Cheap Products to Make Your House Smell Good

Keeping a fresh and odorless h   ouse can be tricky, especially if you own pets. You’re constantly on the lookout for messes and stains left on your carpets and rugs.

Smelly shoes and overflowing trash cans are other major sources of bad smell that can create an unsettling atmosphere within your house. Luckily, there are tons of home fragrances you can use to dispel bad odors in your house within no time.

Scented Candles

Great for boosting relaxation and enhancing sleep. Scented candles come in different flavors, depending on your preference. For instance, eucalyptus orange is an excellent choice for aromatherapy. Strategically place candles in different parts of your house for maximum effect. You can have some in the kitchen, some in the living room and others in the bedroom.

Air Fresheners

Air fresheners come in many different brands. Your choice depends on the odor you’re trying to get rid of. Lavender essential oil is a multipurpose air freshener that enhances mood, freshens your room, and offers many other healing benefits. Try out different air fresheners until you get a perfect one for your home.


Use a diffuser with some essential oils for day-long freshness. Diffusers create a fine mist that carries the fresh scent around your house. They have a natural healing property. To make it more effective, you can add some drops of essential oil into the air filters and let them spread the smell in your entire house.

Baking Soda

Bad smells can creep into your house from areas such as the carpet. To get rid of this scent, you’ll need more than vacuuming. You can sprinkle some baking soda on the carpet and leave it for 10 minutes before vacuuming. This will leave your house smelling fresh.

Fabric Deodorizer

You can use a fabric deodorizer to make your house smell good. Fill a spray bottle with baking soda and essential oil and mix it together. Consider using scents like lavender, which is scientifically proven to have a relaxing effect. This will keep your clothes smelling fresh for longer.

Deodorizing Carpet Deodorizer

The carpet is a major source of bad smells, especially if you have pets. A carpet deodorizer removes these unwanted smells. Sprinkle some powder on the carpet and give it a few minutes before vacuuming. This powder leaves a fresh scent and helps pick up any dirt or fur hair on the carpet.

Incense Sticks

Incense sticks are made of essential oils and aromatic plant materials. Burning a few of these sticks in different rooms in your home provides a good aroma to keep the house smelling good. Incense sticks burn slowly, releasing a fragrant odor that cleanses your environment. You can get different scents if you shop from e-commerce platforms such as Amazon.

Air Purifying Plant

Some house plants come with extra benefits. You can buy plants that are natural air fresheners to keep the house smelling fresh all through. Some of the best options to consider include orchids, palm trees and lilies. Research the best houseplants to amplify good scents in your home.

Scented Cleaning Vinegar

To eliminate bad smells in your home, you need a good cleaning session. You can use scented cleaning vinegar that leaves a fresh scent all over your house. Ensure that you read the instructions on the product because cleaning vinegar should not be used on everything.

How to Make Your House Smell Good Naturally

Use a Lemon Room Spray

Lemon is commonly used as an essential oil in aromatherapy to soothe anxiety and stimulate the mind. You can spray this natural scent to ensure the house smells good naturally.

To keep the bedroom smelling good, you should spray your clothes, beddings, towels, and bedding. There’s a lot of odor that hides in the closet that you can eliminate using a spray.

Use Essential Oil Wax Melts

Wax melts are a great choice to keep your home smelling nice. By adding essential oil, you can create a scent of your choice and have a signature smell for your house.

DIY Reed Diffuser

Add your favorite essential oil to scent and fill with baby oil and shake well to mix. Reeds are inserted into bottles of scented diffuser oil. They soak up the aroma and emit this scent around your home. Unlike incense sticks, they don’t need to be ignited.

Simmer Herbs in a Pot

You can simmer a pot made from orange slices, cinnamon sticks, and fresh cranberries. The heat picks the sweet aroma from all the herbs and spreads it to the rest of the house.
