Post about how being stuck at home during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic quarantine has made for stinky kids, stinky pets, and stinky homes...

Fresh Science odor eliminating sprays are the perfect solution... but there's so much more you can do too

Talk about ways that you can help minimize smells

Yes, these should be obvious, but if you're anything like we are, these days it's hard to remember even obvious things to do. So, make sure you don't forget to empty out all of your trash cans (yes, even the one in the downstairs powder room nobody ever uses!), clean out litter boxes, wash old blankets and dog food bowls.

Also talk about ways you can naturally improve smells:

  • Candles. Yes, candles are great. We love us some aromatic candles! But there's so much more you can do... 
  • Grow green onion, lavender, flowers, etc.
  • Stovetop Potpourri: Boil cinnamon sticks, cardamom, citrus peels, etc. Our favorite stovetop potpourri is this Williams Sonoma inspired recipe: add 1 lemon (sliced), 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, 1 tsp vanilla to a pot of water. Set the pot on your stove, bring to a simmer, and then drop the heat to low.
