Every one wants a nice smelling home, especially if you’ve got guests coming round, and the kitchen is one of the places that often emits odours which aren’t necessarily pleasant. With our top tips you can have a kitchen that smells great in no time! Here’s how it’s done:
Clean the food disposal unit:
If your sink has a kitchen disposal unit attached to it, then it’s important that you regularly cleanse it. Otherwise the smell of food rotting will linger, something that’s not nice for anyone! Boil the kettle and pour it into the unit whilst adding a dash of washing up liquid. Then turn it on. A good trick is to add a lemon/lime rind at the same time- once it’s grinded up there’ll be a lovely fresh smell that should permeate in the kitchen for quite a while.
Regularly clean sponges:
They do a lot of cleaning so it makes sense that they get smelly after a while. If they’re still useable then simply rinse them with bleach or pop them in the dishwasher.
Keep on top of your washing up:
We know what it’s like when you’re busy, but the longer that the washing up piles up, the worse the stench will be. Wash up after every meal and make sure that you put it all away at the same time.
Candles will make any room smell delicious in no time. You can light the ones on display, and then you could leave unlit candles in your cupboards to make them smell nice too.
Make sure the fridge smells good:
Keep it clean, throw away any food that is past its sell by date straight away, and use the old trick of an open box of baking soda. Our top tip is to add essential oil to the baking soda.
