Kitchen Tips Tuesday: Home Scents


No matter how clean you may be, sometimes the house smells a bit “off.”  Last night’s dinner may still be lingering, or perhaps it’s just a bit stuffy. We have a simple, natural trick that we use to scent the air.


Take a small pot of water and add cinnamon, cloves, orange or lemon peels, and bring it to a simmer on the stove. The aroma will permeate the area, leaving the house smelling like fresh baked pie. Just be careful to watch it to make sure that the water doesn’t completely evaporate.

Warning: Could cause extreme baked goods cravings!
