Do you ever wonder what your house smells like? I do.
My mom’s house smells like a mixture of her perfume and “freshly vacuumed” (if there is a scent for that.)
My friend Judy’s house smells like a combination of candles and laundry.
Knowing that every home has a signature scent has me wondering what my home smells like. I fear it’s “grease and grime” or “dirt and dander.”
So, I use these tips to remove household odors naturally.
Deodorize. I occasionally walk around the house spraying it with my homemade deodorizer… a 50/50 mixture of water and vinegar. I not only use it in the air, but on throw pillows and blankets and even my carpet.
You can even spray it on your curtains.
Vacuum. I recently learned that carpets can contribute to household odor because they hold dirt, dead skin cells and pet hair.
When I heard that I kept thinking, Disgusting and Why hasn’t this occurred to me before? and I wish I didn’t have carpet.
But, I do.
Perhaps if I vacuumed more often, I wouldn’t have to worry so much about that. But, vacuuming doesn’t seem to be my gift. Although, I think it could be if I had a Neato™ Robot Vacuum.
Considering the poor condition of my carpet, I was curious about this product that has been recognized as “best for pets” and busy, pet-loving households. So, I clicked on the Neato Robotics® website to learn more.
Ooh! I thought as I read “we do the work.”
Ah! I squealed when I saw that you can schedule the vacuum to come on automatically.
As I continued reading the features I thought, “You had me at ‘we do the work.’ ” And, as if they needed to say anything more, I read this:
It’s your dirty little secret. You love your pet. But you hate that there’s hair everywhere-and you don’t feel like vacuuming.
I feel so understood. I never feel like vacuuming. And, I’m not a bad person for hating the hair.
Blackie’s hair is everywhere…our beds, the edge of the carpet, on chairs and pillows and blankets. Everywhere.
Which brings me to my next tip:
Control Pet Shedding. It stands to reason since carpet holds odor from pet hair and dander. This Pet Shedding Solutions Guide from Neato featuring content from PetMD has several ideas, like brushing your pet and controlling fleas.
Fortunately, Neato can help you with two out of three of these tips and has more information at a special pet-friendly webpage focused on pet shedding solutions.
You can enter the Neato “Best for Pets” Sweepstakes for a chance to win your own Neato Botvac™ Robot Vacuum. Contest ends November 25th.
I’m hoping I win one, too. Then my house can smell less like “dirt and dander” and more like “freshly vacuumed”.
