Get rid of the horrible smell when your home stinks

Do you ever wake up in the morning and your home smells like rotten eggs? Or maybe it's just that no matter how many times you clean, there is still a lingering smell of old cooking left over. If this sounds familiar, then don't feel bad because we've all been there at one time or another! Luckily for us, here is a post with best ways to get rid of that horrible smell so you can breathe easy!

Open up windows and doors to get fresh air

Fresh air can make your home smell fresh and clean and also get rid of the old cooking smell.

Open up windows and open doors between rooms to help circulate fresh air throughout your whole house.

Vacuum the carpet with a cleaner that is made for pet odors

If you have pets in your home, then you know how hard it can be to get rid of the lingering pet odor.

Carpet cleaners are made for this very reason so they will help not only remove odors but also any dirt or grime that may have collected on the carpet over time! Get yourself a good vacuum cleaner too!

Clean your cat's litter box daily

Cats can be very picky about where they go to the bathroom, and if you're like me then your cat's litter box is probably sitting in a corner somewhere.

If this happens often enough, it could start to make your house smell bad! If you don't want that to happen; we recommend cleaning out the litter box at least once a day.

Keep your garbage can closed and empty it regularly

A garbage can is the perfect place for things to start to smell.

If you keep your trashcan closed and empty it regularly, this will help prevent odors from settling in!

Clean with vinegar or baking soda

There are many ways that you can clean your home with just two ingredients - one of them being either baking soda or white vinegar!

If you need to get rid of a smell, whether it's in your garbage can or on the carpet; baking soda and vinegar are two good options. They won't leave any residue behind either so they're perfect for cleaning up after cooking especially if you have gotten something burnt onto your stove-top!

Reduce clutter around the house

Clutter can be a huge cause for concern when it comes to bad smells. If you have clutter lying around, then that is just an area for bacteria and germs to grow!

If your home looks like the aftermath of a hurricane, we recommend opening up cupboards and lofts.

Clean off any spills as soon as they happen

Wipe down surfaces with vinegar and water or baking soda and water, whichever you prefer!

Don't forget to clean any spills as soon as they happen!

Use baking soda or coffee grounds as an absorbent for spills and stains

Another good way to get rid of bad smells is to use baking soda or coffee grounds as an absorbent for spills and stains.

Coffee grounds are a great option because they can also help make your carpet look nice and fresh! They can also be used in the refrigerator to reduce odor, so don't forget about them next time you feel any bad smell.

Use air fresheners

Air fresheners can be used to get rid of bad smells in your home.

If you're looking for something that is a bit simpler; then check out our post on natural air fresheners! These are great because they don't contain any harmful chemicals and will help make the smell go away without leaving behind residues or stains like other products.


The only way to get rid of the smell is by opening up windows and doors, vacuuming carpets with a pet-odor cleaner, cleaning your litterbox daily and keeping it closed when not in use.

Hopefully, after you have read those tips and applied for yourself there will not be any smell.
