Regulate humidity, reduce indoor pollution, clean the air… In summer as in winter, airing your home is essential for a thousand reasons. However, when the temperatures start to drop, we tend to ignore this daily gesture… Big mistake!

To avoid catching cold, favor regular openings for five to ten minutes. “Even if it is generally colder at these times of the day, preferably ventilate early in the morning or in the evening, after 9 p.m. or 10 p.m. This will avoid pollution caused by traffic during rush hour”, advises his on the Engie side.

If airing also helps to rid your interior of bad odors, there are other tricks when you don’t have the courage to bring the cold into your home. You can, for example, put a few bay leaves… On your radiator. Explanations.

According to the how-to-save website, all you need to do is lay some bay leaf on your hot radiator for a few hours. You can also put them in a bowl of water that you will then place on the radiator, provided that your container can withstand the heat.

All you have to do is pick up your laurel in your garden or slip them into your trolley the next time you go to the supermarket…

In addition to deodorizing your interior, bay leaves sanitize your rooms. Two birds with one stone !
