5 mom tricks for a clean smelling house | Fresh Wave

5 mom tricks for a clean smelling house | Fresh Wave

I am one of those people who is terrified of bad smells! It's my number one pet peeve, or more accurately -- insecurity. That makes it sound like I smell bad! I don't -- I don't think. Let's just say, I will go to great lengths to make sure that my house, clothes, car, etc. do not smell bad. This has become especially tricky since a husband, two dogs and a baby have entered the picture. Which is why, when Fresh Wave reached out to me to test some of their safe and natural, non-toxic products I said, "heck yes". Here are a few of my favorite ways I've been able to use these goodies around the house:

1. Put a Fresh Wave Fresh Pod in the inside of the diaper pail. I know I'm not alone when I say I don't want my poor poor baby to have to sleep among a poo smell. I also know I'm not alone when I tell you that there have been times when I've entered the nursery and a wall of stink coming from the diaper pail hits me in the face. No more! 

2. Keep one or two Fresh Wave Odor Removing Packs in the car. Especially during the rainy season, I know the car can hold smells of muddy boots, wet dog, spilled groceries or coffee -- everything. These packs are an amazing alternative to rolling through freezing Portland with your windows down trying to air things out!

3. Keep a 7oz Fresh Wave Odor Removing Gel (maybe larger for a smellier dog?) above or around the dog kennel or dog bed (out of reach of the dogs, of course)! It doesn't matter how many times I wash my pups' bed (or the pups themselves) you can pick their blankets and bed out of a lineup with just your sniffer. This, of course, doesn't eliminate that stench, but you'd have to really get your nose up in there to get a whiff now. A+. 

4. The Fresh Wave Odor Removing Spray is my new bestie. Lydia (I call her Lydia) goes with me all over the house, car, other people's houses, other people's cars. I love this smell -- and I'm picky -- not too "cleaner" smelling and not too floral smelling.

5. More Fresh Wave Odor Removing Packs in the hub's gym bag (yuck) and in the closet by our shoes (yuck). 

Done and done. Now you can trick yourself into thinking you clean your house as much you did before babies (SOS).
