What Does “Clean” Smell Like?
We all love the smell of clean air. From the scent of air after a huge thunderstorm to fresh ocean breezes and lovely flowers, we strive to obtain the smell of “clean” for our homes. We do this by purchasing air fresheners, diffusers, candles, and machines to help pump our home full of this scent. Are these “clean” scents truly as clean as they market themselves to be?
The short answer? Not really. The fresh scent that we have come to call “clean air” is simply a mix of chemicals. What we think of as “clean” is the scent of ozone produced by a cocktail of chemical reactions between the air and your scent machine. Nitric oxide from the machine combines with chemicals in the air to produce ozone.
Unfortunately, ozone can harm your lungs over time. Even if you don’t opt for one of these fresh air machines, other chemicals from air fresheners can be equally harmful – from artificial flower scents to fake sea breezes, relying on these fresheners over time could expose your home to unpleasant chemicals.
So, what does clean smell like? For the most part, absolutely nothing. Step outside and inhale some fresh air – that’s the true smell of clean.
For a true clean-air experience, try these tips to naturally freshen your home environment without the harsh chemicals.
Remove Bad Odor Sources
If you have items in your home that smell bad, your entire home will smell bad as well. Clean, wash, or remove these odor sources to naturally freshen your home:
- Garbage bags
- Pet beds and toys
- Dirty laundry and linens
- Smelly shoes
Use Home Remedies
There are a few natural deodorizers you can use around your home to naturally soak up bad odors. Set out a bowl of plain white vinegar in a smelly area of your home and leave it overnight. When you wake up in the morning, the whole area will smell fresh.
You can also place boxes of baking soda in these areas for the same effect. Like vinegar, baking soda naturally soaks up odors in the air. Cupboards, the kitty’s litter box, your closet, and the bottom of garbage cans are perfect places for baking soda boxes.
Invest in a Few House Plants
House plants naturally produce oxygen and leave behind natural, beautiful scents. Some plants even have air purifying qualities for a natural cleaning effect. Consider investing in these common aromatic plants for a fresher home:
- Gerber daisy
- African violet
