How to Keep your House Smelling Good During the Holiday’s!

Throughout the year, we stay fairly active running the kids around to various after-school and weekend activities like soccer practice, voice lessons, and golf lessons. Rarely are we at home to entertain guests nor do we keep our home in a pristine state every day, all day. But during the holidays, we slow down a bit and start to entertain more frequently. A lot of the time, my husband will have people that work for him over or neighbors will stop by to share their holiday stresses and triumphs.

 How to Keep your House Smelling Good

Now, some of you already know about our dogs, Princess and Rico.  They are allowed to run and play inside and out all of the time. Sometimes those little “stinkers” can really stink the place up and we don’t notice since we are used to their stinkiness.  There are times when visitors come over I wonder, “Is that look on their face because our house reeks of dog stench?” It’s probably my Husband’s jokes causing their distorted faces, but I can’t help worrying. So, like a lot of you, I keep some Febreze around. It won’t help my husband’s jokes, but can help reassure me that our home is fresh and not a haven for stinky dog smells.

How to Keep your House Smelling Fresh 


We all deal with at least some of the 12 Stinks of Christmas. Thankfully, we can laugh at the stinks in this video starring Doug E. Fresh, “The World’s Greatest Entertainer,” and social media sensation @ItsDougThePug kicked it old school and released the second installment of Febreze’s “The #12Stinks of Christmas.” The beatbox pioneer and his four-legged #12Stinks partner-in-crime put their own spin on the holiday classic, “The 12 Days of Christmas,” with a hip-hop music video collaboration-complete with matching track suits of course! Their video brings to life the stinks of the season and highlights how Febreze is the only solution tough enough to eliminate unwanted holiday odors while leaving behind a light, fresh holiday scent that keeps you guest-ready all season long.


The #12Stinks of Christmas

12 Musty Stockings
The stockings may be hung by the chimney with care, but after a year of being buried in your basement, that musty stink is anything but joyful. Revive your holiday stockings with Febreze Fabric Refresher to eliminate lingering odors and leave behind a light, fresh holiday scent.
11 Burnt Cookies
Maybe the day of your party wasn’t the best time to try out that ambitious new cookie recipe. Use a Febreze Candle to eliminate any stinky, smoky odors from your kitchen and ask your cousin to pick up a pie from the bakery on his way over.
10 Flushes per Minute
The endless cycle of guests in your home means your downstairs toilet is getting one of the year’s biggest workouts. Plug a Febreze NOTICEable in the bathroom and let the two alternating scents continuously eliminate those not-so-festive odors.
9 Casseroles A-Cookin’
Your Aunt Barb had one too many eggnogs, and reminiscing about her sorority days has taken precedence over watching the oven timer. Light a Febreze Candle before everyone starts to notice the overwhelming stench of burnt onions, and eliminate odors to keep your home continuously smelling as fresh as it looks.
8 Frying Latkes
Nothing says happy holidays like a hot plate of latkes. But once the smell of greasy potatoes makes its way from your kitchen all the way to your family room, the aroma goes from appetizing to unpleasant. Don’t stress, Febreze Air Effects helps keep odors at bay and lets you breathe happy through the holidays.
7 Diaper Bins
Your new niece is an adorable bundle of joy, but you’d rather get a pile of coal under the tree than take another whiff of those dirty diapers. How can something so little stink SO much? Light a Febreze Candle to continuously eliminate odors (without offending her parents) so you can breathe happy all season long.
6 Boys in One Bedroom
You missed your son so much that his return home for holiday break seems like a Christmas miracle. But then…you notice the giant bag of dirty laundry he’s dragging behind him and remember why his sister was always the favorite. Use a Febreze NOTICEable to prevent your whole home from smelling like a dorm room by continuously eliminating locker room stinks.

5 Pugs in Sweaters
Fido may have better holiday attire than you do, but his penchant for festivity leaves behind a distinct parfum. Use Febreze Fabric Refresher to instantly eliminate pet odors and leave behind a light, fresh holiday scent.
4 Impromptu Guests
Your in-laws are here and they’re early…again. Spray the house with Febreze Air Effects to instantly eliminate odors, and leave your impromptu guests wondering how you manage to keep your home smelling so fresh all season long.
3 Smelly Chairs
You know your grandmother’s hand-me-down chairs smell like years of love, and the musty scent reminds you of her living room. Unfortunately your guests don’t see it that way. Plug in a Febreze NOTICEable by the antiques to eliminate odors and leave behind a light, fresh holiday scent.
2 Mounds of Mess
With ten cousins throwing their sweaty socks into one giant laundry pile, the mounds of mess can pile up quickly. Not only do the mounds take up half the guest room, but they also stink. Take the Febreze Fabric Refresher to the mound and don’t quit until you are smelling light, fresh holiday scents instead of damp clothes.
