When you step into a home, one of the first details your notice is the smell. Sometimes, this is a very pleasant scent and you associate the home as nice. There are also other times where the experience is a little different and you want to make a run for the outside. However, you might wonder why you can never smell your own home and asked others to try and describe the scent. This is quite impossible as you experience nose blindness every time you step into your own home. Thus, to make sure your guests feel welcomed not only by your loved ones, but the smell, follow the six tips below to help make your house smell good.
