Fortunately HG has a number of tips to make sure your home smells fresh again and to stop your clothing and fabrics from being smelly. Consider solving and preventing:

Each problem requires its own approach!

Put an end to musty smells

What about a mattress that smells musty or actually starts to stink a little? It's much nicer to get into a fresh bed at night. Discover how you can make your mattress smell fresh again.

Besides our specific tips and recommendations, you also find products that you can use to remove the source of the odour effectively from a number of different surfaces, for example from the sofa or car upholstery. For example, take the effective odour remover HG eliminator of all unpleasant smells at source.

Prevent unpleasant odours

In fabrics and footwear
It may be difficult to prevent unpleasant smells in fabrics and footwear, particularly if you suffer from excessive perspiration or sweaty feet or if you wash clothing at low temperatures. Fortunately there are different ways in which you can remove smells from clothing, but HG also has products for unpleasant odours in sports clothing, smelly sports shoes or perspiration smells from shoes.

In appliances
You prevent unpleasant odours in the dishwasher by maintaining it properly. For example remove food remnants from the filter and clean the dishwasher regularly. The same applies to other household appliances and machines, including the washing machine and the fridge, because with proper usage and good cleaning you prevent nasty odours and smells from spreading.
