Creative Ways To Refresh Your Home

Wish you could hit the “reset” button on your home? Revitalize it with personalized touches and targeted cleaning.

A mix of odors from pets, cooking and general living can easily take over your home without you realizing it. Unfortunately, it can be the first thing a guest notices.

Experiment with different Febreze PLUG scents until you find one that fills you with joy every time you walk through the front door.

Refresh the artwork.

If your hall and living room need a new lease on life, framing your favorite vinyl sleeves or retro movie posters is a great way to express your personality and give a nod to the past while adding a contemporary feel. Still have all your old concert, theater or festival tickets? Make a scrapbook-style collage and frame it, and then give it a place of pride in your hallway or sitting room.

Refresh each room.

You don't need to replace the furniture to breathe new life into your home. Just add two or three new touches, from a bright rug and new cushion covers to a bold new lampshade and some statement prints, to give an entire room a lift. Finish it off with a quick blast of Febreze AIR to freshen with a light, clean scent.

Refresh your approach to deep cleaning.

Cleaning the microwave or kitchen walls might be the last things you want to do, but finishing these chores will fill you with a renewed sense of excitement.

To deep-clean the microwave, put 1 cup of vinegar and 1 cup of water into a microwave-safe bowl and place inside. Heat the bowl for five to 10 minutes-the steam will loosen any leftover gunk. Then spray Mr. Clean Multi-Surface Spray with Lemon and wipe away.

Refresh the guest room.

Transform a spare bedroom into a dedicated guest room that's always ready for visitors. Air the room thoroughly and turn the mattress, placing a fresh mattress protector on top. Give curtains and rugs a light, fresh scent with a spray of Febreze FABRIC, and add a Febreze PLUG in Mediterranean Lavender to banish stale odors and create a calming environment.
