Baking soda forms the base of this super-customizable carpet deodorizer recipe. For that “fall baking” scent, incorporate cinnamon into the mix. Once you get the blend down, sprinkle on to your carpet, let sit for a couple hours, then vacuum up.
Cinnamon pinecones can make your whole home smell of spiced cookies. If you have a fireplace, you can toss a few into the fire for a more powerful fragrance.
Infuse your home with a warm sugar cookie fragrance by baking two tablespoons of vanilla extract in a dish at 300 degrees for twenty minutes. You could also skip the container and just wipe the oven interior with some vanilla extract, too.
There’s a reason why real estate agents always think about the best scent before a showing. A house that smells like freshly baked cookies can evoke a warm and homey feeling while a refreshing and clean smelling house can evoke feelings of potential and new opportunities.
If you’ve never roasted garlic before, it’s incredibly simple.
Grab a whole head of garlic. Cut the top of the pointy tip off the garlic, just enough to expose the tips of the cloves. Place the garlic on a small sheet of foil with the cut end facing up. Drizzle a little olive oil over the cut end of the garlic head, and sprinkle a pinch each of salt and pepper.
Put the garlic in the center of the oven — place the foil directly on the rack; roast the garlic at 325 degrees for about an hour, and that wonderful aroma is almost too much to bear. That’s it.
