When you blow a candle out and the candle's wax drips onto your wood coffee table, the best thing you can do is let the wax dry before doing anything. Once the it is dry, apply ice to to the wax, which will make it extremely hard and brittle. Then, you can simply scrape the wax off with a plastic spatula. Because you want the wood surface to stay nice, you should polish the table with a cream polish making sure the wax hasn't left any residue.
Some people love the look of a bowl full of dried potpourri as much as they love the smell. This isn't always the case, though, and if you just want the scent of this home fragrancer without the bowl of dried flowers try displaying a bowl of potpourri beads instead. These tiny, pearlized resin beads are infused with fragrance and act just like potpourri. You can set them out in a decorative bowl and they'll act as any home fragrancer, scenting the air around them.
These little beads are also perfect for making your own sachets or car fresheners. Simply take a small organza bag and fill it with the beads. This is a lot less mess than traditional potpourri but with all the same great fragrance.
For years people have had one scent choice when trying to keep mosquitoes at bay. While citronella can be effective, it's not often the best smelling candle. Now you can have it both ways; a great smelling candle and some protection from those nasty biting insects. There are now home fragrance candles on the market that have combined the scent and effect of citronella with other great smelling scents. Available in jar candles, pillars, tea lights and tarts, you now have a multitude of choices in your outdoor home fragrance candles. Not only do they help you enjoy the outdoor but they look much better than a plain, yellow candle.
Choose your outdoor home fragrance from such yummy scents as Garden Spice, Garden Green Herb, Garden Sunny Blooms and Garden Wild Berry—all with a hint of citronella. Now doesn't that sound better than old yellow?
Sometimes burning a candle or plugging in a tart warmer just isn't feasible. If you're looking for a safe and low tech way to fragrance a room try a simple home air fragrance diffuser.
The home air fragrance diffuser consists of a ceramic or glass jar that contains fragrance oil and a set of long stick-like reeds. By opening the jar and placing the reeds into it, the reeds wick up the scented oil and release it into the room. There's no open flame to worry about and no need for electricity. Just set it somewhere that it won't get tipped over and let this simple little home fragrance product do its job.
This type of home air fragrance item is perfect for the office, retirement homes or dorm rooms where open flames aren't allowed. Also try them in a sun room or gazebo where electricity isn't available. To rejuvenate the scents just reverse the sticks.
One of the more popular home fragrance product lines feature crisp and clean scents, including lemon peels or ocean breeze.
For an instant infusion of home fragrance simply mist a room with your favorite scent before guests arrive, or if you need a quick cover-up from a kitch or pet odor.
A home fragrance diffuser is another alternative to regular room fresheners. The designs diffuse fragrance oil through a clay or metal ring, which heats the fragrance to scent your entire room.
For those who love potpourri, simply fill a decorative glass bowl with some fragranced potpourri.
