Try an Indoor Fountain for Fresher Air
If you like the way it smells outside after a good rain, consider making a small investment in an indoor fountain.
Indoor fountains are easy to maintain, and you can find one in nearly any size and style—even on a budget.
How does it work? Moving water creates negative ions, which attract dust and odor-causing compounds, removing them from the air. That makes it smell fresher and cleaner, which is particularly helpful during showings. (Besides, an attractive indoor fountain can add a tranquil ambiance to your home.)
Houseplants Help Clean Air
You already know that plants and trees clean the air outdoors. With a few houseplants, you can bring that freshness indoors. Your plants will clean the air all day, and all they ask in return is a sunny window and an occasional drink of water. Try English ivy, aloe and peace lilies; they’re usually tough to kill and are virtual powerhouses when it comes to cleaning the air.
A Quick Fix for Unpleasant Odors
Short-notice showing after you’ve been frying fish or when Fido hasn’t had a bath in weeks? This trick may surprise you: place a small dish of white vinegar or apple cider vinegar in the room for a while. When you remove the vinegar, the smell will quickly dissipate, taking other unpleasant odors with it. (That’s a secret Realtor(R) trick that we don’t tell just anyone.)
