Nobody wants to live in a stinky home. You want it to always smell fresh and clean. Below you will find the Top 5 tips for getting rid of unwanted household odors.

Nasty Refrigerator Odors

Top 5 Tips for Removing Household OdorsWhen I open up the fridge to find a snack, the last thing I want is for an old stale odor to hit me in the face. This is the quickest way to ruin your appetite. Regularly clean out your fridge and throw away items you won’t be using. Finish up by placing an open box of baking soda inside. You can even place another box in the freezer.

Stinky Garbage Disposals

If you’re starting to notice a rotten smell as you walk closer to the kitchen sink then you might want to take a peek in the garbage disposal. Last weeks leftovers might still be rotting away in there. From time to time put some vinegar down the disposal while it’s running to freshen up your kitchen.

The Dreaded Dishwasher

As time goes by your dishwasher can start to stink. When you take out the dishes you expect them to look and smell sparkling clean. But after a while your dishwasher can start putting off a musty moldy odor. Run a cycle on your dishwasher with it empty and use two cups of white vinegar instead of dish soap.

Doesn’t Smell Like Coffee

If you’re a coffee drinker then you love the smell of freshly brewed coffee in the morning. If your morning cup of joe is starting to taste or smell a little funky you need to clean it up. Run a pot of one part vinegar and two parts water through your coffee maker. Then run a pot of just water to flush out the nasty vinegar.

Cigarette Smoke

This is the worst odor of them all. Cigarette odors like to linger around forever. They embed themselves in your fabrics and carpets long after the smoke clears. You can try to remove them by sprinkling baking soda over the area. Let it sit for a couple of hours and then vacuum it up using a vacuum with a HEPA filter. If you’re not using a HEPA filter you’re not going to get up all the tiny particles. If the cigarette smell is still there you might require a professional carpet cleaning to remove the odor.
