You must have noticed that every house has a certain smell but you don’t find any such thing in your own home. This is because we are used to the smell   of our own house but our guests aren’t used to it. Therefore, if you think that there is some funky smell at your place, then immediately conceal it.

There are several ways that you can use to make your house smell fresh. You can use a diffuser with essential oils like lavender, lemongrass or any other. If you don’t have a diffuser, then spray an air freshener all over the house.


Most of the time we get lazy and don’t clean around. Therefore, there is a lot of clutter at times which we don’t want our guests to see and I’m sure the guests also wouldn’t want to see it. So, just hide all the mess in a place that no one can see. However, don’t make this a habit as all the clutter that winds up will be overflowing after a while and it’ll be even more difficult to clean it.
