You can use this to replace scented candles, too!
For those of us who live with furry friends, things are bound to get a little smelly. We may not notice it as we're constantly around them, but guests will definitely pick up on the stink from the moment they enter your home.
You might think something as simple as canned deodorizers can get rid of it, however, these tend to be too in your face and end up making the odor worse. Don't worry, there's an easy way to keep your home smelling fresh! The real secret? Peppermint oil.
As one of the oldest European herbs used for medicinal purposes, a few drops of it would mask even the strongest of smells and even keep rodents away. Try this trick at home:
What you need:
- a cute little bowl
- cotton pads
- peppermint essential oil
- Place three to five cotton pads in the bowl.
- Start with 10-20 drops of peppermint oil. If it's not enough, continue pouring until the first layer is completely soaked.
- Strategically place the bowl in places where pungent odor is prevalent.
RL Tip: According to How To Get Rid Of Mice, the scent of peppermint oil also scares mice away. To keep your home free from unwanted pests, you can place these on possible entry points such as tiny nooks and crannies.
