If you have a baby nursery or a kids room in your house, you know there are some funky smells that can arise over time. I have had to deal with them. I have searched under the bed for strange odors or in the shoe bin for shoes that needed to be tossed out or disinfected. There are so many simple, easy, and fast ways to get the odor out of a kids room and replace the room with a smell that will have you swooning.
There is something blissful about putting on a stylish wax warmer in your house and letting the air get filled with delicious smells. Every once in a while, for a gathering or birthday party, I love to bust out a flameless wax warmer to ensure my house smells awesome. My daughter has also started loving to smell different candles and wax scents.
Below is a list of ideas for making sure a kids room is fresh and smells good, and also a fun gift idea- a child’s very own cute, safe, fragrance system!
1. Check smelly shoes
I try and have my daughter rotate out her shoes so they do not get too stinky. However, she loves certain shoes and will wear them day after day. Typically I will pull out her smelly shoes occasionally and sprinkle them with baking soda or give them a good washing. Here is a good link for washing shoes.
2. Make a no food or drink in the bedroom rule
Our daughter drinks milk often, and I have found a couple of her sippy cups way under her bed with yucky, old milk. Old and moldy milk is so not refreshing! We try and encourage our daughter to never bring food into her room, as we don’t want to attract bugs in there. Yuck! Plus, kids love to get crumbs everywhere and that makes it hard to control the mess.
3. Wash sheets and bedding
It is probably not a bad idea to wash bedding once a week, as oils and sweat accumulate on kids bedding. If it cannot be done once a week, at least once a month is a great idea.
4. Good diaper pail or trash can
For a nursery, there are many awesome diaper pails out there that keep odor in the room down. It is best to empty the trash as often as possible, obviously, because no diaper pail is perfect. There are also great trash cans for older kids with lids on them to contain odors.
5. Child friendly wax warmer
When I showed Lillian this adorable child-friendly, waxless, AromaBreeze Fragrance System she was so excited! She couldn’t wait to open the package. She immediately wanted to take it to her room. There is an innovative fragrance Halo that ensures continued aroma distribution that is safe for kiddos. It looks super cute on her dresser. It actually uses no heat so it is safe for kids rooms. We keep hers plugged into the wall. Of course, it is still important to pay close attention to instructions and warnings when using a kids-safe fragrance in a child’s room. She wanted the cupcake scent, of course, and it did smell exactly like cupcakes! Her room smelled very delicious and fresh! She loves her carousel fragrance system.
6. Fresh cut flowers
Even kids can enjoy some fresh cut flowers in their bedroom. Flowers can brighten the mood and also add a subtle and refreshing smell to kids rooms.
7. Open Windows
There is nothing like opening windows to clear out odors and let the room smell fresh again. I love sunny and warm days that I can air out our home. Same applies for kids rooms!
8. Check under bed
I don’t know why, but kids beds collect the weirdest and grossest things underneath them! Every week, pull everything out that has gotten stuck down there. I hope you don’t find an old bagel. (Yea, it’s happened).
Of course, all these tips could be applied to the rest of the home as well! Kids rooms just get stinkier, quicker, than our other areas. I also got a Scentsationals Warmer for our home, and used it at Lil’s birthday party this past weekend. I loved the Honey Bourbon Frosting waxes- they smelled amazing! I love to freshen up my home naturally, and every once in a while, use a wax warmer to make our home smell delicious. I’ve shared with you how I plan on using my new AromaBreeze Fragrance System, where in your home would you get the most use?
