I have very fond memories of when both my girls lived in different states and they would come to stay for the holiday. I loved having them and their families come and spend more then just the day with us. I wanted everything just perfect from the decorations, to the food, to the presents. I wanted them to feel comfortable and to come into a winter wonderland full of cheer. However along with the joy of family and friends gathering at his festive time there are many aroma’s that are not of holiday cheer.
Right after Thanksgiving we would bring in all of the decorations and start going through them. Unfortunately many items that have been boxed up in a hot and humid garage for the past year do not always bring on that holiday aroma if you know what I mean. So to give those stockings a fresh holiday smell just spray them with Febreze Fabric Refresher. The best thing about Febreze is that it doesn’t just mask the odors. Febreze eliminates the odor so you don’t have to worry about that musty smell resurfacing.
I learned years ago the most important thing when entertaining is preparation, preparation, and preparation. I always start the holiday preparation long before my guests arrive. There is nothing worse then everyone talking and laughing and you are slaving away in the kitchen. Before you know it the party has ended and you didn’t really get to enjoy everyone’s company. So preparing dishes in advance is essential.
One would think that cooking all day would fill your house with wonderful scents however this is not quite true. Steaming shrimp for example doesn’t always leave the best smell in the house and for some reason it will linger for hours and hours. No worries, just spray the house with Febreze Air Effects, perhaps the Jolly Pine or Cranberry cheer scent and you don’t have to worry about that fishy smell hitting your guests in the face when they enter your winter wonderland.
Speaking of unwanted odors, I have two cats and I am always concerned about my felines liter box. I have yet to hear anyone say, “Oh that kitty litter smells just wonderful.” To de-stink this area I set out a couple Febreze smallSpaces Air Freshner which does the trick every time.
One nice thing about living in Florida is that the kids can go outside and play street hockey or shoot a few hoops so I figure a very thoughtful and appreciated stocking stuffer for that long ride home is Febreze CAR vent clip which will remove that gym class smell shall we say.
So my tip to you this holiday season is to be prepared in advance of your guests arrival and to keep Mr Grinch , who can only be described as Stink, Stank, Stunk out of you home eliminating all those Stinks of Christmas with Febreze.
