Cleaning your home isn’t the most exciting activity, and it’s made much worse when you’re working with eye-watering chemicals. Many cleaning formulas smell obnoxiously strong or reek of that classic disinfectant smell and the idea of using them is enough to make the most avid cleaners want to procrastinate.
While it’s essential to break out the bleach or heavy-duty solutions every now and then, it doesn’t mean all of your cleaning products have to smell like traditional cleaning products. Nowadays, you won’t be hard-pressed to find wipes with a light grapefruit scent or wood cleaners that leave a gentle almond fragrance behind. Not only will your house look fantastic, but it’ll smell great, too. Below, shop 19 different products that get the job done while also pleasing your senses.
You can wake up and smell the roses thanks to Cloth + Bristle’s multipurpose cleaner, which smells like the fragrant flower. It’s free of harsh chemicals (only five ingredients on this list), but it’s adaptable and able to clean most rooms. Surfaces such as marble, plastic, granite, marble, grout, and mirrors all look much shinier after a spritz of this.
Sick of lemon and orange scents? Turn to grapefruit. It still provides that clean, citrusy fragrance but isn’t as overdone. This all-purpose cleaner from Attitude Living also has lavender, citrus zest, and unscented options, too, and comes in a bottle that can be refilled.
Mrs. Meyer’s is renowned for its great-smelling cleaning products. Not only do they leave a gentle scent behind, but they’re effective, too, according to tens of thousands of five-star ratings. Try this all-purpose spray in bright lemon verbena or calming lavender. When the holidays roll around, look out for the brand’s Apple Cider and Peppermint scented products, too—they’re heavenly!
A minty fresh fragrance is the epitome of cleanliness for many people, but not many cleaning products have this scent. These Seventh Generation wipes scrub off dirt and grime from countertops, floors, and appliances with ease and leave behind a gentle refreshing mint smell that come from natural essential oils.
Blending the invigorating scents of orange and rosemary, this all-purpose cleaner gets every room looking clean. Made of almost all plant-based ingredients and free of things like ammonia and parabens, it’s a good option for using on a day-to-day basis. It ticks the essential eco-friendly boxes, too, as you can simply purchase these as refills for your bottles.
For clothes that are remarkably clean but smell slightly different from the classic detergents, turn to Method’s Ginger Mango option. Though the scent is lovely, it’s a great formula for pulling out tough stains, too, and preventing color fade.
Vinegar is a must-have in any home for cleaning surfaces, descaling appliances, washing floors, and numerous other chores. That being said, for some noses, it’s not the most fantastic smell. To get the benefits of vinegar with a lovely scent, The Laundress has your back with its cleaning vinegar that has a blend of eucalyptus and pine along with other touches of bergamot and thyme.
Doing the dishes is one of the least pleasant chores and to help mask any odors from food stuck to pots and pans or plates that have been sitting out for too long, you need reliable dish soap. Though this one is chock-full of biodegradable ingredients, it cuts through grease and grime, but won’t harm your skin.
When doing the dishes and cleaning your kitchen, you need a good bottle of hand soap at the ready too. Mrs. Meyer’s Apple Cider soap is a dream for the autumn season but smells good enough to use year-round as well. It’s made with all the right ingredients so your hands won’t dry out when it’s cold either.
Dirty and dusty windows can make a house feel grimy even if the rest of it is clean. To prevent streaks, a window-specific cleaner will make a world of a difference. This one has a light citrus fragrance and only requires a quick spritz and wipe—no rinsing necessary.
For mopping and scrubbing floors, why not try an alternative solution that smells fabulous, too? If you’re used to the standard scent, The Laundress will give your senses a nice surprise with its number 247 fragrance that blends eucalyptus, pine, ylang-ylang, and other oils that’ll stand out to your nose and spiffy up the place visually, too.
Wood cleaners are one such product that not only smells potent, but the smell tends to hang around a little too long. This restores shine and that brand-new appearance to wood furniture and surfaces but won’t leave any sticky residue. It also smells faintly of almonds—a much nicer change from the standard.
Carpet cleaners are some of the biggest offenders when it comes to brutally strong fragrances. This one from Puracy is kind to the senses but harsh on dirt, pet stains, and discoloration. Shoppers say that the scent is pleasant but light and by no means overpowering. This is ideal, particularly for carpets in rooms that have a lot of foot traffic or for people who are sensitive to smells.
Like their wood cleaner, Method’s stainless steel cleaner also comes in better scents than what you’d typically expect. This apple-smelling solution is biodegradable but works a treat on cleaning off your metallic surfaces of streaks and smudges and leaves it looking pretty dazzling, too.
Pet stains and messes can be rather…smelly. Though cleaning products are helpful, the mixing of odors can be disastrous. Rather than dousing it with strong chemically formulations, try this lemongrass-scented spray. The brand adds that it’s also perfect for applying to wine stains, making it a great addition to your home’s cleaning arsenal.
Logically speaking, there is no smellier place in the house than your trash can. The second the lid swings up, unpleasant odors often meet you face to face. To keep these at a minimum, have Grab Green’s Trash Can Odor Removing Spray on-hand. It’s more than just a spray that masks the scent, it features zinc ricinoleate, which really helps block out smells.
Countertops get grimy fast, especially in the kitchen. To combat messes successfully, try the countertop spray cleaner from Caldrea if you’re after something that smells lovely, too. With vegetable protein extract and a pear blossom agave fragrance, the spray not only cleans plenty of different surface types, but it knocks out bad odors, too.
No home can have enough multipurpose wipes, especially since they get used so quickly. These smell of pink grapefruit and can slide across a wide range of surfaces. They’re also compostable, so you aren’t adding to the single-use problem that many wipes present.
Keep the lovely scented laundry going with this fabric conditioner from The Laundress, which harbors a slightly warm and spicy fragrance. Towels and clothes fresh from the dryer are one of life’s little luxuries, but when they’re extra soft, fluffy, and smell impeccable, it makes folding, putting them away, and using or wearing even more pleasant.
