A Quick Tip to Make Your Home Smell Lovely for Viewings

A quick tip to make your home smell lovely for viewings blogpost by AshdownJones estate agents in the Lakes and Dales

Today’s blogpost is a super quick tip to help make your house smell lovely!

Some of the homes we are asked to take to market are in rural locations, or full of wonderfully cute dogs, cats or other pets. Now these homes can have their own scented challenges; not much you can do when you have a gorgeous country home next door to a dairy farm, or when your old dog gets a little unhygienic.

Even sports-mad teens can have a faint whiff about their bedroom you might want to ameliorate.

Whilst we love them all equally of course, it’s sometimes helpful to have a few tricks up your sleeve to make your home smell wonderful, without resorting to harsh room sprays or chemical plug-in air fresheners.

We have the answer (of course).

Our solution is very quick, super easy and even fantastically cheap.

Just buy a packet of tumble drier sheets. We love Bounce for their natural, freshly-laundered inspiration. Just take a tumble drier sheet, and place it over a heated radiator. Preferably one out of sight. You can also ball it up (or two together) and push it down behind or in between the radiator. (Make sure you can still retrieve it.)

A few minutes on your warm radiator, and the tumble drier sheet will have the effect pf making your whole house of beautifully clean laundry.

Alternatively, and based on the same premise, you can simply take a piece of kitchen towel, and add a little fabric conditioner. Rub this on your warm radiator, and it will have the same effect.

If you’d like to know how your home smells (we’ll be honest) or you’d like to know some more quick tips to make sure your home looks and smells amazing, call us in, and we’ll share with you our most secret tricks.
