As a homemaker, one of the ways I show my love for my family is to make sure we have an inviting home.
Keeping our home clean is a routine that I can easily do but making sure our home smells good is a different story. All the cooking, laundry, and natural body odor (sweat and whatnot) scents circulate around our home, particularly our common bathroom, it’s right behind our kitchen so on most days when I prepare meals, there’s a faint whiff that goes through even with the kitchen exhaust on. It has become a bit more challenging now that we’ve been staying home (for eleven weeks as of writing) because of quarantine. It can be even more challenging when you have kids who are very particular with odors. They literally won’t step foot (even if they urgently need to use the toilet, they’ll hold it in) inside a bathroom if it doesn’t smell good. What’s a mom need to do?
It has always been my mission to make sure I have the right product to help make our home smell as good as it looks. Which is why I surprised them with Glade Sakura & Waterlily. Glade shared with me their newest scent—Sakura & Waterlily, pre-quarantine.
It’s got a lovely sweet scent of floral freshness that reminds me of Japan. The last place we visited this year. The fragrance briefly transported me back to Fukuoka, as I imagine walking along Maizuru Park where cherry blossom trees lined among the ruins.
To say my kids love the new scent of their bathroom is an understatement. The scented gel is now a mainstay in their bathroom, and they like it so much that they’ve been going there frequently—I think it’s a good thing because they wash their hands more!
They’ve also asked me to spray Glade Sakura & Waterlily in their bedroom as well. Like me, they too felt like they were back in Japan, enjoying the cold summer breeze with sakura blooming. The delicate scent of blooms got the approval of my family. It doesn’t give that overpowering smell (a no-no for us because strong odors usually trigger our allergic rhinitis) which makes it perfect in our children’s bathroom as it gives a fresh atmosphere even without a window.
I believe that having a home that smells good is equally important as having a clean one. I’m glad I discovered Glade Sakura & Waterlily, a soft fragrance that brings freshness in our home.
