Default A good household air freshener / deoderant

With the cold in the winter, the house doesn't get opened much and
household odors accumulate; cooking odors, doggie odors, bathroom odors,
etc. I'm looking for some good suggestions for room deodorizers, air
fresheners, deodorants, candles, or whatever. We have tried some of the
grocery store stuff without being very satisfied. Some put out rather
strong and nearly objectionable odors, almost making things worse.

I'm not saying we stink (smile), we just like a fresh clean smelling
house like one gets in the springtime when doors and windows are open. I
know that's probably not completely possible, but you see what I'm
talking about.

Thanks in advance for any good ideas.


I use fresh air from outside. Air fresheners are basically air
polluters spewing all kinds of chemicals into your air to trick your
nose and brain into thinking it smells nice. Like others said, use
ventilation/heat exchangers. I have already gone around the house
squeezing orange peels to release their oils. I like the smell of oranges.
