Everyday Items to Remove Odors in the Home

Kids, pets and day-to-day household activities can leave your home smelling less than fresh. Fortunately, there are simple ways to keep every room in the house smelling great.

The living room is where most of the living in the house is done, so it’s not hard to see why so many odors can get trapped here.

Carpet fibers are often an overlooked spot that trap unwanted smells.

Use Febreze® Carpet Deodorizing Powders to quickly freshen. Just sprinkle the powder on carpets, wait for a few minutes and vacuum as usual. The powder cleans up to three times better than vacuuming alone* and leaves behind a light, fresh scent.

Does your kitchen still smell of last night’s dinner? Take a citrus peel, put it down the garbage disposal and run it. This will give off a sweet, citrusy scent. For a musty-smelling basement, cut an onion in half and leave it overnight. The onion smell will linger for a while, but eventually it goes away and neutralizes the musty odor.
