Do you want to know a secret? Sometimes our house smells terrible! It’s the worst. It’s so embarrassing. We have to constantly stay on top of it. We can’t really figure it out. We’ve lived here for seven years and it’s always been an issue. We think it has to do with humidity and the fact that we have an unfinished, dirt-floor basement. Of course our stinky dog & the ever-full trash bin of poopy diapers doesn’t help anything. Oh, and then there’s our compost pile, too. We keep the compost outside, but we always have a bowl full of egg shells, vegetable peels, coffee grinds, etc. waiting to be brought out.

Even though it’s embarrassing, I feel like it’s probably a pretty common occurrence. Maybe? Thing is, I refuse to plug something into the wall, spray something in the house, or burn candles that contain chemicals. I just will not do it. On the rare occasion when I do burn regular candles, it actually hurts my throat. Can you imagine what that must be doing to our insides? Yuck and no thanks. Matthew and I are both super-sensitive to smells — we don’t wear perfume or cologne for this reason.

So we’ve always dealt with things the best way that we could. Baths for Bella, burning natural incense once in awhile, lots of vacuuming and taking out the trash. Then recently, the folks over at Fresh Wave reached out to invite us to try their line of natural, odor removing products. Obviously we were all ears. (…Or all noses?)

The main reason that I said yes — aside from our smelly house — is because Fresh Wave’s products are all natural. They’re literally just made with natural ingredients: water and essential plant oils. They’re non-toxic and non-hazardous. They’re safe for people, pets, and the environment. I was sold!

Fresh Wave sent along their three signature products — odor removing spray, gel, and packs. The products have been working wonders. They actually remove odors rather than covering them up with perfumes and chemicals. I use the spray on furniture and carpets about once a week, especially after Bella’s been spending time in the living room. I use the packets inside the trash can and inside of our diaper pail. I keep the gel in the bathroom.

Honestly, since we’ve started using the Fresh Wave products, our house has never smelled better. It doesn’t irritate our sensitives schnozes and I know it’s safe for our whole family. Win, win, win. I think that our days as smelly-house owners might be behind us. 😉

You can learn more about the Fresh Wave products on their website — Happy, Healthy, Odor Free. The products that I’ve mentioned are exclusively carried at Target stores. Just enter your ZIP code on the site and you’ll get a list of the Target stores closest to you.

    Ohh totally checking these products out. My house always smells bad because of my 2 very old cats that no longer find using the cat little a priority. All day every day I am cleaning and trying to get their horrible smell away! Bonus that this stuff is natural 🙂
