Freshen up your bedroom with these 6 ways!
1. Give an extra dose of freshness
You can easily give your linens to your bed an extra dose of freshness. Add ½ cup of baking soda to the rinse cycle when washing your sheets and pillows. This will make them smell clothesline fresh, almost brand new!
2. Give your duvets a breath of fresh air
Take your comforters outside and hang the outside in the sun every few months. Airing out your duvets will remove the stalely scents that linger on your duvets. This is a great, hassle-free of dry cleaning or washing your comforter.
3. Remove the musty odors
Tackle your dresser drawers by getting rid of that musty smell. Sprinkle baking soda in an empty drawer. Let it sit overnight and then vacuum it up.
4. Air out the closets
Your closets can collect a lot of smells and odors that can be unpleasant. Remove those musty and stale scents from your closets by allowing baking soda to do its duty here. Place a box of baking soda on the shelf to keep your closets smelling fresh. To keep the freshness optimal, replace the baking soda every 30 days!
5. Make smelly sneakers fresh again
Wearing your sneakers all of the time, especially if you only have one pair, can make them a bit stinky. You can easily freshen them up again by shaking a little of baking soda into the sneakers between wears. Baking soda absorbs and neutralizes the odors. Use at least once a week or more if you frequently use your pair of sneakers. Be sure to tap out any excess baking soda before wearing them again!
6. Get your suitcases trip-ready
Make your clothes not smell musty or stale within your suitcase before your next vacation. Sprinkle baking soda inside generously. Allow it to sit for 15 minutes and then vacuum up.
