We can spend a lot of time finding the right furniture, making the perfect accessories, and overall creating the right atmosphere for our homes, but if something isn’t right, like a bad smell, then our humble abode is far from perfect.

Some simple home remedies use plants and basic cleaning with baking soda, vinegar, salt, and other natural cleaners.
