    22 Products That'll Make Your Home Smell So Much Cleaner

    Aka, how to make it *seem* like you deep clean at least 1x a week.

    Hey! While we try to keep our posts updated as much as we can, this post is actually from 2018, so we can't guarantee that the pricing and/or availability of the products featured are accurate. For our most up-to-date recommendations, check out the 2019 version of this post!

    1. A pair of charcoal shoe inserts to help you ~lazily~ fight the funk any time your footwear's in storage, lest you have to throw out another pair of your kid's sneakers because they've tainted the mudroom.

    2. Or a pair of cedar shoe trees in case you're worried about rank wafts and misshapen footwear.

    3. A bottle of air sanitizer (yes that's a thing) that apparently funeral directors love...and you will too, for lots of more NORMAL uses!

    4. A super concentrated cat litter deodorizer to make guests say "What litter box?!"

    5. An LED diffuser/humidifier to puff out some of your fave essential oils because maybe you don't want to smell those onions you cooked for fajitas three days later.

    6. A charcoal bag for hanging most anywhere that tends to get that low-key (but still awful) musty smell.

    7. A before-you-go toilet spray like Poo-Pourri, V.I.Poo, or Unicorn Gold to help fight horrible bathroom smells before they exist.

    8. An odor-minimizing diaper pail more than 1K people swear by on Amazon because if you're dealing with diapers, you'll NEED one of these.

    9. A 10-pack of disposer fresheners to make de-funking that hardworking kitchen help a ball.

    10. A solid air freshener you can stash in a corner and forget about (and also the horrible smell that made you buy it in the first place).

    11. A box of 68 Febreze-treated trash bags — they may make taking the trash out ASAP after dinner a thing of the past.

    12. A commercial garbage freshener that'll leave the practice of perfectly timing what you toss with trash pickup in the dust.

    13. An odor-removing candle and matching gel in case you'd rather not deal with a new scent (even if it does smell nice).

    14. A stainless-steel soap bar for erasing garlic and fish odors from your hands, which is something that'll follow you *all* around the house if you don't do something about it STAT.

    15. A fragrance-free closet dehumidifier to keep your clothes smelling as fresh as they look.

    16. An industrial-strength pet odor neutralizer for when your fur babies have accidents.

    17. A bag of rocks that'll get the smoky smell out of a recently vacated rental where like 50 people smoked. (Kidding, but maybe like 5 people?!)

    18. A box of washing machine–cleaning tablets because if you don't clean the thing that cleans your clothes, they'll start smelling a little rank, too.

    19. A trio of dishwashing net cloths that won't cause a weird wet smell around the clock like your trusty sponge.

    20. A box of dryer sheets that'll actually get the dog smell out of the throw blanket that was a human blanket for about a week before you found your precious fur babe swaddled up in it one day.

    21. A pack of grooming wipes — they may just help your pupper from stinking up the couch that he's technically not allowed on...but we all know he snoozes on it all day when you're at work.

    22. A discreet wall plug-in for removing all kinds of errant wafts so your dog can finally fart in peace.
