For a house that always feels good

1. Airing 
Airing is very important. You can leave some windows open for a third party all night because the air is cleaner, and leave slightly open for most of the day.

2. Make sure all laundry is clean
All fabrics and clothing, whether in closets or not, must be clean. Do not put half-dirty clothes in your closets. Instead of that :

- post them, in which case you can leave them on a chair or coat rack while waiting, but not for long

- relaunch them to the delicate / light cycle

Dirty laundry, wherever it is, must not stagnate either.

Finally, it is important to change your bed linen regularly, for example once a week. All clothes and all fabrics in general must feel clean. If this is not the case, consider rewashing them.

3. That the household be done
Clean your house well at least once a week.

4. Eliminate objects with an unpleasant odor

∙ Keep shoes away as far as possible
Find a solution to take out the shoes, or clean them from the inside as well as from outside, also wiping the soles.

Do not dirty the floor by walking on it with dirty shoes, but wear slippers inside, clean of course, and washed regularly.

∙ Get rid of food odors
Do not leave behind odorous food, dirty dishes, or organic detritus.

Always close the kitchen door when cooking. Ventilate the kitchen well before reopening it. If you have an American kitchen, do not forget to turn on the hood when cooking.

Remove any other objects with an unpleasant smell
For example old things that are deteriorated, filthy or dusty that can not be washed or cleaned.

5. Have objects that smell good
Like flowers, a lemon tree ...

6. Be clean yourself
Take regular showers and wash your hair before it becomes visibly oily and perfume.
