Home Staging: Fragrance, Smells, and Odors

Nothing smells better than clean!

The source of the most common problem odors: pets, smoking, cooking, and mold or mildew.

A zippered pillowcase filled with cedar chips, placed under a pets pillow bed, will absorb most of the unpleasant odors.

Boiling an apple, a teaspoon of cinnamon, and a few drops of vanilla on the stove will remove burnt smells in the kitchen. Add orange peels to make a simmering potpourri.

Sprinkle baking soda directly onto carpets, rugs, and sofas to eliminate odorsthen let it sit for at least 30 minutes before vacuuming.

A bowl of vinegar placed in a room for a day or two will help neutralize smoke odors.

Small cotton balls with a few drops of your favorite perfume or cologne, tucked discreetly around the home, can freshen a room.

Candles, plug-ins, and home fragrance sprays can work wonders when the scent is well chosen, and not overdone.
