Home is where you spend most of your time, your safe haven and an escape from the world, at least for most people. In order to make your home somewhere you want to spend time, you want it to no only be clean and clutter free, but to smell clean and fresh. Sometimes odors sneak up on us and we don't know how to get rid of them completely. There are products that will cover up the odors in the house, but how can you eliminate them? Many products on the market claim they can kill germs and eliminate orders for good. These products may do what they claim but they also leave harmful chemicals and chemical agents in the air for your family to breathe. If you want to safely get rid of unpleasant odors in your home you need to look at natural odor eliminators.

First decide what is the cause of the odor and get rid of it. Some houses are older and may have plumbing or other problems that cause a stale, moldy smell. If this is the case you probably can't do much about it without a total remodel. You can however clean walls, sinks, counters and the affected areas with vinegar which is a natural deodorizer and powerful cleaning agent, it will help to eliminate the moldy smell and leave you with a clean fresh scent that is safe to breathe.

When it comes to fragrances for your home, candles are a good choice, but to keep a healthy environment it is suggested to choose soy candles and candles with lead-free wicks. There are several companies that have recognized the health risk of lead wicks and unsafe ingredients. Soy candles and other natural candles are readily available; just check labels and ingredients before purchasing the candle. Candles are offered in all kinds of wonderful fragrances you will have many to choose from.

You can also make your own air freshener by filling some little cup with vinegar (white distilled or malt vinegar works well) and discretely setting them around the house in places where they won't be disturbed, or use mint oil for a different and unique scent (which works particularly well in the kitchen). This will give you a clean fresh smell without causing headaches or breathing problems like some commercial air fresheners. You can save money by using vinegar and other natural ingredients because they are definitely less expensive than commercial products and work just as well or better than the advertised products.

Air purifiers are another option for fresh, clean air in your home. These machines pull impurities out of the air and release positive ionic ions that help to cleanse the air and leave a fresh scent in your home. There are several different types of purifiers, but they are all said to be effective odor eliminators. One draw back to the purifier option is that they can be a little pricey, but they are a good solution to odor and dust problems.

Choosing air fresheners or products to get rid of the odors in your home doesn't have to be difficult. You can try several things and see what works best for your specific problems and needs. The suggestions above will give you some ideas and get you started. You will be well on your way to a clean, fresh, odor-free environment in no time.
