Using a cleaner that leaves behind a refreshing scent is even better. Check out this link to learn how to make a scented cleaning vinegar that not only cleans effectively, but leaves behind a lemony fresh scent.

7. Take an orange and add whole cloves to it.

For this, all you’ll need is an orange or several—if you want to make more—and take a handful of whole cloves. Take each entire clove one at a time and push them into the orange. You can create a pretty design or simple design.

Many call this a Fresh Orange Pomander, and a pleasant scent is released from the combination of the oranges and cloves, refreshing the whole room. This way is an excellent way to make your house smell good because not only does it smell fantastic, but it’s also beautiful!

Most of these “solutions” are fast fixes for semi-emergency situations. For long-term good smell, you do have to keep the odors from starting in the first place. You can hire a professional house cleaning service to help you out. Look at these options above for areas smelling fresh and clean. And don’t forget to air out regularly by opening your windows and door to keep your house smelling naturally fresh.

Halloween is in the air, so are you ready to be spooky and get scared? If you’re looking for things to do in Denver this Halloween, the Mile-High city has lots of it. You can take your kids to explore a seven-acre corn maze, hear tales of Victorian horror, or go to a trick-or-treating at the zoo.

Don’t worry, the only thing really spooky in these events is the amount of fun you and your family will be having!

Here are some family-friendly Halloween events in Denver, Colorado!

 

Boo at Denver Zoo

At the Denver Zoo, you’ll find the annual “Boo at the Zoo.” There are more than 20 trick-or-treat stations, family-friendly entertainment under the canopy of the zoo’s beautiful fall foliage, and demonstrations of some creepy, but fascinating, animals. With the cost of your zoo admission, the activities are free and Boo After Dark offers a nighttime trick-or-treating experience. So bring your kids in their scariest costume ever!

Chatfield Corn Maze

Take your kids to his year’s Denver Botanic Gardens’ seven-acre Corn Maze at Chatfield Farms and get lost in one of the most attended corn mazes in the country. Watch the delight of children as they find their way through a mini-maze made just for them. Overlook the giant Corn Maze while at the two 15-foot tall illuminated bridges, and wind your way through acres of corn.

And don’t forget to come out during the Pumpkin Festival to pick the perfect jack-o-lantern from the 10-acre pumpkin patch.

Colorado Haunted History Tours

With one of these walking tours, you can relive the spirited history of the Wild West through the towns of Morrison or Golden. You can take the “Ghosts and Legends Tour” that takes the visitors through historic Morrison.  Who passes through these building or whose spirits still remain?

Colorado has many haunted stories throughout history. The “Murder, Mayhem and Madness Tour” displays the home of Coors Brewery that includes stories of Golden’s past stories about shootouts, murder, lynchings, etc., although that one might be too strong for some kids, as it advises strong parental guidance for children under the age of 13.

Nevertheless, these tours are on the “Ten Best Haunted Tours and Scary Story Tours Around Denver” list which are suitable for kids.

Elitch Gardens Fright Fest

At night, Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park transforms from a theme park to a “scream” park. In the daylight, children squeal in joy with free candy on the Trick or Treat Trail, but once the sun goes down, haunted creatures lurk around every corner of the park.

There are so many activities to choose from. There’s a Ghouls Match where you can battle it out through various Halloween themed challenges. Scream It Out gives an award such as Scream King or Queen to people with the loudest shriek. Don’t forget the costume contest! You’re encouraged to get creative with your costumes, but no face masks or paint due to security concerns.

Glow at the Gardens

The Denver Botanic Gardens central location also features a wonderland of Halloween  illuminated pathways and jack o’ lanterns galore.

Aside from the spectacular illuminations, guests can enjoy a wide array of activities including Live music by Jack Rice Music, “Thriller” dance lessons with Adventures in Dance, Pumpkin carving demos, Halloween storytelling from Rachel Ann Harding, and free face painting.
