shutterstock_134700560Homekeeping can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to unpleasant odors lingering about. From moldy sour cream and rotten left overs in the fridge to funky athletic socks hidden under your teenager’s bed, The Circular Home is here to give you a step by step process to naturally rid your home of unpleasant smells. Today we will address how to extinguish the rotting perfume of deceased rodent.

Step 1 – Repeat the phrase, “I think something has died in the attic” to your significant other.

Step 2 – Urge significant other that there is no way that decaying stench could be leftover beef sandwiches from your son’s birthday party hosted the day before.

Step 3 – Eagerly act on his suggestion to turn on the house fan just to prove him wrong and flood your home with the scent of putrescent animal flesh.

Step 4 – Shut off house fan and begin lighting matches and candles in an effort to get rid of the smell. Keep repeating, “Something has died in the attic.”

Step 5 – Watch husband climb the attic ladder and hear him mutter something under his breath about why he has to be the one to go in the attic. Remind him that you gave birth to his 3 children.

Step 6 – Brew a fresh pot of Harney & Sons Earl Grey tea while you wait for the discovery of the dead animal you knew was up there all along.

Step 7 – Listen to a variety of curse words and choking sounds as husband exclaims, “There’s a dead mouse up here!”

Step 8 – Put on your Wellies and tip toe into the garden for some fresh herbs.

Step 9 – Pluck a handful of mint and basil leaves, add the bunch to water on the stovetop. Bring to a boil and turn off heat, letting a fresh herbal bouquet fill your home.

Step 10 – Sip tea and watch husband dispose of dead rodent, wash his hands, and then disappear into the basement to play World of Warcraft.
